I am also insured with Progressive. I haven't gotten my renewal yet. If mich is taxing us at $175.00 per vehicle, I will unfortunately be riding certain vehicles uninsured this year.

Hey Charlie, free stuff!

I have a rear wheel for a late 70's Honda ct 90, 110. Complete with sprocket, hub and brake. Not too shabby. some minor surface rust but servicable. You want it? Know anyone that might? Reasonable price. Free. Possible barley tax to cover transport costs way the F over there. Lemme know.
Any plans for Gilmore this year?

add to this the short lifespan of tires and high cost of tire replacement and you can see why i dont advise people to ride a motorcycle just to save money. (and the fact that many bikes that dont get much better mpg then some cars) its the fun. if it isnt fun stick with cars.

I have a really nice Honda CT90K2, 1970, red, that is for sale for $300. It needs the gas tank rust cleaned out which makes it alternately run then not run. It still has the original muffler on it yet. Seat in great shape. All original paint. Engine rebuilt in 2011.Everything is there and you can get it running pretty easily by once again cleaning out the carb. It has a new and clean MI title. Sorry that I don't know how to post pix but if you PM me I can give you a pic on your phone.I will be home in May. Bike is in central MI.

Hows the back wheel look? Yup, just as I suspected. Needs to be replaced. Come get this thing outta my garage.

You survived the cut? Good for you. It will get better, so much better that you'll need glasses for reading....Back in the day I got contacts because I hated wearing glasses under my goggles when dirt biking or snow skiing. Its the only time I wore them.

I had contacts. I hated them. Originally I wore them all the time once I got them, but then I drifted back to wearing glasses more. Glasses didn't work well with all the things I do. Skiing on frozen or thawed water, Motorcycling, sailing, bicycling.

Back on topic now, I picked up a second set of wheels for the KLX and put some street rubber on them, so I am good to go for some road trips now. Maybe I should invest in a Seat Concepts seat now for a little more distance.

If you think that, you likely did. Go with your gut instinct. The reason your thinking that is because your spidey senses are tingling. Learn to feel the force within. Run now while you still can.
