Look forward to seeing the snapshots
I like the old iron,, it's fun to work on unlike the new stuff they have out now, at one time had many bikes ,one time I got the BOSS and me some trail bikes to go tooling around on in the hills, the Boss hit a tree the 1st. time out with her bike, that was funny to me but not her, that took her riding days down to zero..
so now I just hop on the bike and hit the road..
late at night the norm, just about sundown when all the bugs come out
but I like the cool air , the sid lid is a must for me now but I still like to take it off now and then to get the free feeling back one more time...nothing like having the wind blowing on you at 60 or so with the bugs hitting you at 70 or so..
sure saves on dinner, all the bugs you can eat for free
I'm getting a bit older now but I sure enjoy riding the bike... many will say your nuts, but they are the ones that have not been on a bike..
at 11:00 at night pich black out on a dark highway ,just you and the bike and the stars and the wind.., GREAT
some will say I have the seen the Kawasaki TV add and that looks like fun,,, it's about 10 times better than the add on TV...
As you can see I like bikes
and have for about 50 years or so..

on another computer... long story, but I've almost finished recovering, er, "finding" them.
I also own a 1978 Yamaha XS1100 that I carried into the garage, one box at a time. Someday, I might actually finish putting it together.
I've got the motor together, in the freshly (5 years ago) painted frame. Just have to get the electrics, brakes, etc etc together on it. Someday.....
