  2. @BusyLittleShop i was wondering/HOPING you'd be poppin in here!!!
  3. as a 90's honda rider, i think you need to give that up because yer screename is 'captain 80's'. As such, I have moved a bike over so it'll fit in nicely here. See you this weekend.
  4. 🤔48 been ridin around for a bit. Obviously not stopping. My priorities have been ... 'if ya ain't flying by the seat of yer pants don't do it...'
  5. Hilarious!!! I think WE ALL need a good long relaxing ride weekend on our bikes!!!
  6. I'm trying to rebuild the stable. I had the 3rd gen bug since 2006 when i rode my friends. At one point had 13 of them. 90,91,92&93's respectively, and set them all up the same. Tank was super clean inside. I will take more pictures as time allows.
  7. So I found a 3rd gen a couple years ago on craigslist Wisconsin, and purchased it, from a couple of shared pictures. No keys, no title, and an attempt at resurrecting/registering the title at some point but no follow through from p.o. . What I was told, 'The bike has been in the back of my body shop, covered with dust for what I'm assuming is a VERY VERY VERY long time, I've forgotten it's been that long.' So I paid the man. I made plans to take a month off, bring my wife, my o.g. 3rd gen, pick up the bike, and stop to ride at various locations on the way there and back. We were set. Right around that time, my wife was notified she'd need to stay because a fellow employee found out she had health issues that needed immediate attention. The bike sat for 2 more years. Between my work, her work, and keeping busy with family, I finally had time to schedule a pick up and drop off this last December. I rubbed my eyes at the odometer, 20,444 miles. Looks at though it was dropped on both sides as the rider pegs broken off of both sides, small scrapes on lower fairings not broken, but scraped, o.g. vfr grips still in tact, a dash plastic, missing bar end missing. Other than that she is stock, clean, complete. am still working on her once or twice a week in small increments. I ordered tires Monday last week, and they showed yesterday. Upon inspection of the tires on the bike, i find these dates both Bridgestone BT050, and new still with the rubbers nubbins on them. Knowing that, i have no reason to believe that these aren't actual miles. I'm shocked. More later.
  8. 🤣🚨🥳 i got the bug when my uncle ran over me with a 1974 yz80😜. Crying, laughing angrily, as i was helped by the neighbor girl whom proceeded to scrub the tread marks off of my back, she asked my name and... oh uh shoot oh ya i miss the ol' days 🤭 sorry no pics. We were a lil more careful with our outlaw bahahahavior🤪
  9. The one I do not understand, or When it come about, 'i appreciate you' i keep waiting for the rest of the sentence... WHAT IN THE WORLD? 🤦🏻‍♂️
  10. If more kids were NOT in school, and had hands on influence without distractions, it would be a different society. I'm all for back to farming. Clean stalls, buck bails, gather eggs, fix fences, sow oats, shoe horses, remodel house, wrench on rust buckets, make yer own bicycle choppers with several forks from others bikes wire tied together, bb gun wars, playing tag with the bull across the property, repeat. Down by the river on a friday night... lol
  11. No doubt y'all saw the 13 yr old die on his dirt bike runnin from the popo
  12. Sorry guys. I remember growing up on a bike in the late 70's & since... helmets were optional. I get it, but that's a dad, involving his kid. The only bad thing, is the cigarette. Remember, We all drank beer when we were kids. 'Oops dad, i forgot to get your beer, be right back. there's more I can say, but why?

  15. Since havin a grandkid pop into our lives on a daily basis, we find that we are ready to take a couple weekends off, out of town for long distance ride or few 😜. Thought I would pin this as our start destination is Coeur d Alene, Idaho. I may also be starting work in Salem for a projected 3 year project, but more on that later.
  16. If you are looking at that listing, look at 'suggested similar items' there is an RC24 steerer and yoke that has the 2bolt lower. *edit : upon further inspection, and comparison, that lower may actually be from the XL250!!! Lol
