Well they won't ride with me again at least until the exhaust pipe burns on their legs heal.

That's why I went ahead and put sidecars on BOTH sides of the geezer glide.

It gives me extra room for the little woman's stuff and I can fill the other one with beer and ice.

My Trophy weighs 700lbs with my jug butt on it and it'll run away and hide from an ST1100

That's a sport tourer

Being able to bite the dust with out spilling your drink is a valuable skill both on the bike and off, and one which I've practiced dilligently over the years

I've worked hard at it too. I've almost mastered the trick of dismounting a lawn tractor without any spillage.

My wife is tired of the HD logo shape cut in the lawn, though.

This reminds me of a story...

One night a bunch of squid were hanging at the local stop on the strip here in Morgantown. They gather there ever night in the summer before they head off and try to kill each other on public roads. A couple of them were running their mouths to this old fart, about his early 90's goldwing.

The guy said,'Y'all think you can ride? Watch this.."

He whipped that bike around in the parking lot on a dime. i thought I was gonna ***** myself I was laughing so hard, but he was just gettin' started. The strip is one way, so he headed out and went around the block. The squid all thought he was gone and were laughing and stuff, when he comes around the corner. Ring in front of them he pops a wheelie and rides it down the street! He's hollerin' at them, "You can't ride you [email protected]!"

That was to much.

Mine's a '91 with zero defects to date. I only have to fuss with brake pads, tires and fluids. Wait, I did have a radiator hose clamp loosen and I lost a few drops of coolant. So I is happy with my beast. I ride alone so if you can ride away from me you won't see me getting too upset. As the short guy said, "It only has to be long enough to please me."

Seriously, when I sold my K75s I thought about getting a Triumph. I think the Trophy is a very nice bike. If they put a shaft on it I'll think even harder about getting one.

Re: How to Fall Like a Pro
Reminds me of a Johnny B. story of him riding the Roadog or what ever it was called. Burnsie did a graceful get-off on that monster and lived to tell the tail. Johnny B, hows bout reprising that event with a "Hot To" on getting off the Roadog. Better yet, you can do your on video of the ultimate slow speed test of skill buy riding the Gelbke-mobile through a slalom course. I'm sure Buzz Walnick would lend it to you again, if he still has it.

Re: neener neener
There's rumors to that effect, also using the 1300 engine that was supposed to go in the sportbike...........

I had an '85 K100RS for about 5 years, 70k miles, neat bikes! I don't think you can go wrong with an ST1100 either
