Default Re: Old and Hidden In The Garage

A buddy of mine rides an MZ Baghira (among a lot of other interesting stuff). He's also a former highly accumplished WERA racer. Take the bike of your choosing, meet him on the back roads of the mid-atantic. If you beat him anywhere, I'll buy you lunch. But, he'll be eating your lunch, so I guess I better just go ahead and take his order.

I've made the mistake of riding race replica bikes on badly maintained roads before. Replica + washboard = never again. Chatter city. I'll take the Zrex any day over a 999 on Hwy89. There are long sections that'll rattle your teeth out as my friend learned on his Duck999.



He traded for an R1200GS by the way.

Amen to that. The wife of a guy I used to teach with let me rider her Savage once. It wasn't. That's the only one I've seen on the road. A lady I work with rides a Blast. I do see several of those around town. I've never known anyone who's had trouble with one though. However, I do live in the sticks and have never seen an Aprilia, MV or Rune on the road here either. There is a Rune at our Honda dealer but it's not for sale, so I won't be seeing it on the road either.

Eh, what do I now about riding in the northeast. I only live in the Philly area after all.

I thought is was funny too. You guys really put a lot of importance on the moderator thing.. I wish it was a five gold star system myself.. No doubt I would have the most gold stars.

Right... Bellevue is the only district in Western WA that a Republican kept his seat in the election.. He barely won against someone with no experience. Lots of Lexus, Benz, Volvo, Porche SUVs running around.. Microsoft is just up the road in Redmond
