We've got 2-3" here in the Mountaintown area. Started around lunchtime Saturday and snowed off and on most of the afternoon. Darn camera is in my tank bag at home. It's pretty, especially on the evergreens with a cardinal sitting there. 28 degrees at the moment so it's got to warm up before it goes anywhere.

Look forward to seeing that old air head.

Nice. A 1973 model just like me. I am always looking for '73 bikes...but have not had the courage to buy any of them yet. Good luck with it. Does it need a lot of work?

Looks good, Flux.

I've got an old 73 kawasaki myself. There's a boneyard out in Conyers with a shitload of all different kinds of bikes on it. They had five or six of mine. Holler if you have trouble finding parts.

The 950 has a new sidekick as of yesterday. Gonna call it "Elvis" after the original owner who bought it new in 1974 and rode around on it shooting deer . 1973 R75/5 with 10-year old dust and grime on it. It needed saving.


now we're talking

You can't go wrong with a KDX. They are happy to poke along on, but capable of riding as hard as you want. They can be had for cheap and require about as little maintenance as any bike ever made. I've put many hours on mine and still love it.

The airhead should be fun. I started a restoration tread over in Oldschool.

You were supposed to call me on your way to Woodstock, vagina boy.

There's one reason I'm very happy when Flux buys a cool bike...
