Wow didn't know the Geezer glide had been around that long...40 year old design no wonder Harley profits are so unreal.. Ok it is a timeless classic design.



Perhaps kpaul's Buell Firebolt "Black Thunder" will be on a stamp 40 years from now. I can see the copy now "This stamp depicts the great motorcycle prophet kpaul's beloved Buell Firebolt "Black Thunder"... Black Thunder was the bike that kpaul broke the Iron Butt record for the Seattle to Miami run..Earlier that year kpaul on Black Thunder won the Daytona 200. Black Thunder now resides at the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame

Hilariously entertaining.



Does Iron Butt really have a 3500 mile run?? I can say I pulled 1106 in 18.5 hrs on my XB-12 but wow...

Perhaps Kpaul will actually buy a Buell instead of talking about it. I have a bet with Buz and I have the losing side so far, so hurry up and buy the thing already.

I think we both win either way because we still get to drink. It just depends on who gets to pay for it!

So, you're going to make it a point to talk about how much you love riding the Black Thunder, huh? And you'll probably brag about how sore your ass is, too.

"Black Thunder now resides at the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame..."



...next to kpaul's biodiesel car, and framed certificate of completion from Freddie Spencer's track school.

It'd be a lot easier to have a classic sport bike stamp. You could use any sport bike from 1998.

Nah. "Ninja" is synonymous with "sportbike" in the American consciousness.

Classic American motocycle stamps? Whew. At first I was worried it was a Sturgis stamp. I wasn't about to lick one of those without an antibiotic handy.
