Wish I had my Roadrunner back.

I discovered Sunday that some (redacted) (redacted) (redacted) had smashed-out the pass window, then stripped the entire interior out of it but for the dash-shell. Couldn't be any more bare if they'd set the b!tch on fire.

That's about a $10-15K setback. ****ers.

Happy Independence Day.

**** Everybody.

Nice looking bike, but around here the lack of a front fender would get really old, really fast.
The 'sugar-sand' that is everywhere gets thrown up, and gritblasts you. No fun! And rain? Fergit it!

Once that sugar sand gets a nice coating of oil, you'll be able to rip all your front fenders off.

I hear it's "no fling" oil.

Nice. I'm not a cruiser guy, but I'd be proud to ride that!

Some customs just have "it". This is one.

What kind of tires are on that thing? They look like car tires. And I thought he called himself a motorcyclist. Ha!

It's a legit '38 Knuck. That's why it's cool.

Nah, Figured I'd keep the Rex and I found a 94 Yamaha XT350 for a grand. Going to buy it Sunday. It only has 3100 miles on it and the plastics are faded but otherwise in great shape. I did find a very nice 95 Tiger but the guys price as about $800 too rich for me to pull off.
