  1. Thank you very much Miguel for all you've done. This place has been like a second family for me. I'm aging out of mc riding as well. You are the only person in my life to give me the shirt of his back! I'll never forget you.
  2. If my memory serves me right I passed that way while the road was under construction with traffic reduced to one lane while the oncoming lane was closed. A couple of times I managed to filter to the head of the the waiting line and allowed to be the first to proceed when our lane was opened. I had the whole road to myself for quite a while. That made this the best day of that long trip. Not equaled since.
  3. So you drew the eyes on the tape? Nice work. And the eyes do appear to be looking to where you want to go.
  4. I love your headlight covers. Sure beats the blue painters tape I use to cover my fragile bits during track time for the Advances Riders courses at the local track at DCTC.
  5. Holy socks! Fabulous pic.
  6. Thanks for the grin. When I was in high school my bedroom window looked out over a three-season porch roof with an oak tree nearby. There was a white squirrel that would cross the roof to take nuts right out of my hand. I still do enjoy watch the cute little critters to this day.
  7. I was struck today, looking at the picture with the tank removed, at how simple that machine is, compared to the complexity of my fifth gens, which are becoming scarier for me to contemplate fixing. Very greatful for the factory service manual and even more grateful for the collective intelligence of this discussion group. I tip my helmet to all who all the contributors.
  8. Good one. Actually she was angry at me for waking her up. If I could find a helmet to fit her she could come riding with me. But there is an on-going discussion between us over just who's chair that is. I am sorry for the thread highjack.

    One fine looking pair of machines!
  10. We here in the midwest US have these new things spread all over. But many of ours are in farm country. Lots of space for these here in Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, places I visit occasionally in my former rides and now in my cage. I'm too old to go on multi-day trips. A tent and camping gear that fits in my hardbags (41L x 2) the tent is too small for my arthritic body to sqeeze into. Local day trips are it from here on. But I still enjoy driving my 2008 Civic manual for trips to the Rocky Mountains. If motel rooms are too expensive (increalingly common) I can sleep in the car. And my three year old dog, Mojo, can come along.

    +1 Quite the gape-able machine! Congrats. You obviously have fabulous taste in mc's.
  13. Looks like the old fashion Netherlands windmills have been seriously upgraded.
