  1. Not sure if I should say Welcome. LOL.

    Z Leathers Suit

    13+ years and I am still rocking this suit and boots, although they have had minor repairs, plus new sleeves due to sweat damage a couple years go. Custom and top quality stuff, well worth the money.
  3. I think it was that 1988 Laguna Seca 500 GP race that got me into racing. Saw it on over the air TV, and just had to get cable TV, and go to the races the next year. It's a great all day ride up the coast. Kevin Schwantz sticks in my mind, although I don't recall if it was because he had a good result, or crashed, picked it up and carried on, or what.
  4. I miss Laguna Seca. Have not been since i think 2013. Based on the T shirts. In 2011 Valentino and Nicky were team mates on Ducati. In the closet I have an autographed T shirt from Rainey, the year they named it Rainey curve. And 1 from Doohan another year not long after, and he was retired, iirc. Plus others. And a lot of posters I have not looked at in years.
  5. I don't put anything more valuable than a snot rag in the jacket pockets. Wallet goes in the pants pocket with this JR gear. Phone goes in the trunk, or fanny pack if I bring that.
  6. I had one with the perf leather sleeves. After a few years the leather rotted from sweat. I was lucky to find one without leather on Craigs list for $20 last year and snapped it up. I don't think the protection is on par with a leather suit, or a textile suit, but those are too dam hot in summer.
  7. I think you can still download XP. Not sure if this is legit, but look around. https://isoriver.com/windows-xp-iso-download/
  8. Unplug wires. Remove part 2, remove bulb and replace. Helps to have small hands. But much less work.
  9. Never had a Nighthawk, but they looked cool. I had an '85 Yamaha Maxim 700. A competitor I guess. Modernish looking gauge cluster there. 😁
  10. If that was me I'd be worried those girls would be laughing about that creepy old man. 😄 I don't know how you do it, but carry on.
  11. If you're going old, here is a 1977 XS750, same color as the one I had. Before I painted it red. Triple disc brakes, self cancelling turn signals, and 3 into 2 exhaust. It was my second bike and coming off a Honda CL360 acceleration was fierce. I think it was one of the faster bikes of it's day. You can see the spindly right side up fork, shaft drive, and the way old school dual shocks. Tires are far better now too. Had a kick starter plus electric button. They call it a 750, and the engine cases were stamped 747CC. So, I have kick started a 747! 😄 Pro
  12. The Multistrada looks like a good touring bike. I think the seat is on the high side? I was enamored of Monsters for a long time, so stuck with deciding which Monster. Torque is good, yeah!
  13. For some reason I thought the XSR700 was supposed to be a distant relation to the old XS750 I had. But that was a 1977 model with 3 cylinders, what was I thinking?
