Agreed, t is, there is just something about it thats hard to explain. its not even possible driving a car. riding a motorcycle just has a bit of magic to it. just you and the open road. heck i even got my fear of riding freeways out of my system and found myself cruising down the I5 at 70...lol . ive put 2300 miles on it since January, i was hoping for 5-6k, but thats a goal for another year..It may become my daily depending on the outcome of this VW TDI Diesel scandal, so its not going anywhere just in case.

Why buy it when you can build it cheaper.

Figured I would poke my nose in and say hi! I am alive and holding my own, was not a good winter for me, I am still not 100%. Hoping for warm weather ahead, and try riding some this spring. Bike has sat untouched under a cover since about November. I do have it on a tender, stand puck, corks in the pipes, and the intakes. full of fuel and stabilizer, so the day I do want to ride its ready for me. Good news on the horizon, medicare has approved surgery on my leg this year, and possibly looking at shoulder surgery for 17. Long road of recovery ahead, bike isn't going anywhere now with it paid off, its not costing me anything other then $11 a month in insurance and $80 for a sticker on the plate a year. I am here and I am around.. thanks hope everyone had a great holiday. I also upgraded my vehicle since last I was on, thats helped a ton, going from a small car hat was a challenge getting in and out of to a small SUV, now I can get places I haven't in years, and something I can tow with..

Glad to hear the news.
Keep your chin up and you'll be riding before you know it.
Thanks for the update.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
