Geez, I didn't know you weren't supposed to load 'em up like mules, go places far away, and ride real fast on old bikes.

For example:

Tennessee/North Carolina (you know where... ):

Iowa. That's Wisconsin over yonder:

Pick a good bike, fix it up right, and you'll be fine. I've flogged the shit out of my GS850 for over 90,000 miles. It's got over 125,000 on it, and I plan to keep it pretty much forever.

Bonus loaded 1991 VX800 somewhere in Wisconsin. I sold this one a few years ago.:

Resting, unloaded, outside a cheap motel in Illinois. Note vintage tourers in the background. This was a GS rally -- buy yourself an old Suzuki and head over to
1983 Suzuki GS850G, Cosmic Blue
2002 Suzuki Vstrom DL1000, Midnight Blue
2005 Kawasaki KLR685 - Turd II.2, The ReReTurdening
