Got it all cleaned up and ready to ride...a few more minor things to work on. But So far, So good. Amazing what you can find, not bad for a 30 year old bike.

I figured I'd dig this one up because if I hear the name Obama one more time, I may projectile-vomit! :sick:

Here's a few of my toys, past & present: (I may venture off-topic with the ATV's & dirtbikes)

2002 Suzuki DRZ400S with a few little tricks in the engine department. Would hit 100 mph rather quickly! Sold for the Harley, but would buy one again.

The red/black machine is my Polaris Sportsman 800 twin EFI. Hell of a workhorse & plenty of stock power to play. Tough too, but VERY heavy!

These are Yamaha BW80 's (BW = Big Wheel) from various years. The red/white ones are from '86 & the blue/wht one is 1990. These are a ton of fun! In the background is a 1984 Honda XL350R that I'm in the process of rebuilding & the bike to the left of that is a 1993 Yamaha XT350 that I was fixing for a buddy -- & yes those ugly-ass colors have been removed!

Only allowed 5 pics, so I couldn't get my '01 Kawi KDX220 on there.

Past motorcycles were a 1984 Kawi KZ700 -- my first street bike & a 1994 Honda CBR600F2, which was the first motorized vehicle I ever bought new. Owned it for 8 years & 38K miles ( most of which was put on in Arizona & Cali. )

Nice pics of NS Ablumny! I've been hearing about that place for years. Since I've had the chance to ride Hwy 1 in Cali, that may be my next "must-do" ride! Probably pretty chilly up there right now though! :lol: Sweet rides too! I've got to get a bike with a radio & GPS someday. I still like to race around, so I have to get that out of my blood first -- it's taking longer than expected,, :lol:

Hunlock, how do you like the Victory? I almost bought a Hammer before I found a great deal on my Night Train. Victory is kicking ass this year -- you see all the ' 09's yet? Nice stuff!

SMITTY-

I LOVE my bike! The '09's are awesome, but I still love the look/feel of my '99. I have a few performance upgrades, as well as some custom sheetmetal work, but I could not be happier.

The hammers are sick!!!! The 8ball is prolly my favorite "new" Victory.

I recently rode an Ultra Classic Scraming Eagle Ed. A very nice bike. Smooth ride, and great handling...

My favorite Harley is the Night Train.....Guess that's why I love the Victory 8ball soo much!

Latest two additions, gotta love those beemers, smooth as silk and fast enough to keep you paying attention, and for a 600+ # beast handles the twisties with amazing ease! Bought the yellow 98 in July, and the red 03 in August. So far have over racked up 7,000 miles on the two since purchase (including 10 miles of off-roading with flyer 5 on the red one :lol: ). The 03 gets ridden to Philly for work once or twice a week (300 miles round trip). All I need now is a heated riding suit for the cold weather, if it ever gets here that is. :P

Yeah, it's much easier to keep clean than chrome! :lol:

That's in real nice shape for a ' 99. I remember test-riding those when they first came out that year out in Phoenix when I worked at a bike shop. They sold everything -- the big 4 Jap brands, plus Big Dog, Ironhorse, Titan, Chinese knock- offs of Jap machines & Polaris/Victory.

I always liked the Victory from that point on. I got to deliver one to a customer by riding it to his house after repairing. Was very impressed that they got it right on their first try.

That Ultra Classic is sweet! Some serious $$$ thought -- awww, what's another payment! toothy


Matthaus, I remember seeing several BMW million mile clubs -- what was the highest one? Those will run for eternity!

How did I ever miss this one???

I remember thinking, winter before last, that there seemed to be a lot of riders who burned coal and wondered whether it was a "winter for coal, summer for bikes" thing. That led to our first Pottsville meet in June of 2007.

Anyhow, I took 30 years off after a couple close friends came up on the stat sheets, then started riding on the street again after 9/11.

As of now, I've got a 2004 FJR that my wife and I travel on, a 98 ZX-6E for solo day riding (and the one time I've done a track school), an EX-250 for the learners, and the last of the strokers, a 2001 KE-100.

Here's the FJR on the Blue Ridge Parkway on our 2100 mile trip north from South FL in 2005.

Here are mine. I sold the Sporty. What a mistake it was my all time favorite. I owned a bunch more through the years but these two were are my favorites. I still have the FLHS. It's banged up a bit though. A few years ago I stopped at a traffic light and the young girl behind me didn't. Thank God I was first in line. The last photo I took after the accident. It really does not show much damage but there is a lot. All comedic though. I have not ridden since. I'm still hurting a bit, my knees.

The last photo my brother sent me when he was in Nova Scotia. I got a kick seeing a photo taken at the same spot and thought I would post my brothers. He did the same trip two years ago.

Let's ride. I can be in Montrose (where my brother student-taught about 40 yrs ago) in about 2 hrs. And you boys can show me/us around the twisties.

However, to pick up on what I assume is GPS humor, we do like to ride on pavement when possible. ;)
