WNY,

I ride up to Cherry Springs a few times a year. That area
has great riding roads. Route 44 is a little chewed up this year,
but should be fine by next summer. Shinglehouse is as far North
as I got this year.

My '99 FXDL [lowrider]. Bought a geezer-glide [FLHT] in '02, and the FX just sat there going down in value, so I sold it last spring [$7500 :sick: ]. The price heyday for them is over. It was fun to ride, but the big glide is just so much nicer for normal me and wife riding.

118" engine, 4.125" x 4.4". Home ported raised port SE bathtub heads, 2.02"/1.60", Wood TW9B cams, 11.5-1 CR, D&D 2 into 1 stepped exhaust, 48 mm mik on an S&S super D intake .

Excuse me, but I guess you guys must be posting from NEPA on Venus right. All I remember from my youth is freezing my a** off for most of the year on my Vincent Black Shadow. Also to the poster about a Cessna, the weather stinks for flying most of the year around here. My coal stove I can enjoy all year. In the winter it's just essential and in the summer we can talk and play with settings and dream of lighting up. Oh, did I mention it's also a lot cheaper than those other hobbies.

Can't remember if I posted the RD pics after I finished it?? :? Most of the progress & pics through the whole project were posted in Saturday Coffee - must be between Feb. & July, as that's when most of the work was done.

Anyways ...

Here's the bike that I took my road test on so many years ago. We bought it with 131 miles on the clock in 1977 or 1978 and I proceeded to put 8000 fun filled miles on it. My parents just sold their home so it came back to me. I'll clean it up (although it's near new condition now) and ride it a bit.

On an R1? 100% real. Those bikes are absolutely nutso in the horsepower department.

I used to ride like that on 495 back when I was 17. :lol: Wish I could've afforded a camera back then - I'd have some priceless footage. Lost my license for a year ... then 4 more times after that. The state did very well on my income ... :| The SDIP steps back then went from 9 to 35. 15 was neutral - no surcharge & no credit. 9 was max credit, 35 was max surcharge. My driving statement used to say 35 + 9. 35 max. Used to pay $1,800 per year on a $500 beater for basic. Fun times .... :(

This has all changed now - totally different system. But back then, this is how it was: http://www.mass-traffic-ticket.com/mass ... cases.html
