Default Motorcycle disease continues!

Well, I jumped in with both feet again. Tomorrow morning I will be riding the ST4 down to the local dealer and then I will ride home on a new Sport Classic!

She'll be a red GT1000 with Termi pipes and bar-end mirrors. I just figure I can't let Sarnali recycle his bikes more than I do! The ST4 was a great bike over 24,000 miles.

I just realized that all my current bikes will be air-cooled.

45 degree Vtwin
90 degree L twin
Parallel twin 2 stroke
Single 80cc 2 stroke

Not a radiator among 'em! And not one over 100 hp. I'm not gonna have any fun!

Come on man! At least my ancient Concours should have 100hp.

I wouldn't mind a Thruxton.

I think my current bunch may not have 100HP when added together!

I envy you. That Duc is such a fine looking bike. There was this rich kid in high school who had one that looked a lot like it. The little bastard had a Lotus Europa too.

N-Joy, send feelthy peectures!

Jeez Buzz, you would think living in SD with 3 street bikes the entire board would offer to visit and buy you a beer. Wait til it snows and disconnect your phone.

Well I rode the H-D today because I needed to go to the mall and pick up my laptop from the Apple dealer and then I rode the RD400 around town just to piss people off!

Dang that thing is loud.

...put in 20:1 premix and then ride back and forth in front of the Sierra Club offices. Then do the same in front of the Federal Bldg where the EPA has its offices.

Well they banned leaf blowers in Del Mar. Maybe I'll ride this around there just to remind the locals of the good old days!

...for weed-wacker imitations. In fact, that was the name of our motorized bicycle gang "Hell's Weedwackers".

Had a patch and everything...and you don't want to know what a prospect had to do to join...
