No need to feed the troll, hackies.

Some people have deeper pockets than others, some people like different set-ups. It's what makes the motorcycling world wonderful. I will never hold a rider's choice of bike/combo/equipment/attire/money spent against them (short of flip-flops and shorts on a motorcycle).

Some people like to detest and ridicule what they don't understand; I believe the term is "ignorance."

Let's get back to our hacks!

Call me crazy, but I don't get it. Flame on.

Someone please clue me in...
no flaming
but....
what do you mean "crappy car exposed to elements?"
there is NOTHING "CRAPPY" about MY rig

also...
what i spent on my rig is no secret
folks know what these things cost
and people are aware that i hacked a brand-new '11 GS-Adventure
why?
because i wanted to
and because i've worked 100 hours/week for decades to be able to do so
i provide for my wife and daughter... and still could afford to do so
not that i have to justify it to anyone
but, you DID ask

Exactly why I have 5 bikes in the garage. (Including 2 Hacks)




My $5000 ebay rig with 1800 miles on it. (Of course I had to do some roadside repairs to overcome the Russian technology on the way home)

I bought this one used for ~$5500. Fast & furious.



This one I bought new for about twice that. It will take me anywhere if there's enough time.



And this one was about 3 times the cost of the 2nd one. Go long & go hard on this one. Had the car shipped to the house & mounted it myself.

Agreed. My schedule was supposed to be 12 on, 12 off, 12 on, 84 off, 12 on, 12 off, 12 on, 60 off. When I decided that I wanted to propose, I was working 9 days straight (24 hrs) with 12 off and then a bunch of days in a row again. did this for a few weeks and paid for the ring cash.

When I started wanting to pour some money into some of the bikes I had at the time, I'd get all the overtime I could get plus picked up a second job.

Now, I'm working regular business hours and with the way the federal budget is, I can't get overtime so I spend what i I can, when I can. That being said, if someone puts forth the effort, earns the money and takes care of their obligations, who cares what they spend on themselves. There's no rhyme or reason, look at the Lamborghini Countach. Total POS, expensive to buy and maintain, yet people lusted after them; again, no rhyme or reason. As anyone who has worked in medicine or emergency services/law enforcement can tell you, there's a lot of stress you take home. Having a healthy release is worth the cost, it sure as hell beats alcohol or drugs.

You obviously don't "get it." I feel sorry for you, you are missing out on a great aspect of motorcycling.

Now, please, move along, your ignorance is starting to upset Greg. You don't want that, just ask the last troll what happened to him when Greg showed up with a goat, some vaseline and a slice of pizza.

Don't worry Greg, I'll let you ride your crappy rig with me. Even if it doesn't leak oil and have things falling off like my wagon queen family truckster.
Love the pic of your dad in the rig. My father was my first passenger after I got the Italy back together.
Awesome thread so far. I am starting to see ideas for this winter's project.

Why do cats like to pee in sidecars?

I believe the tonneau cover primary design function had nothing to do with keeping the inside of the car weatherproof, it was to keep cats out.
