What's wrong with you guys? You need a New Yorker to figure out the tag for you?

Some coworkers are going to take advantage of our furlough day tomorrow and ride down there with me. If somebody grabs it before we can get down there all I ask is you post up a new tag fairly soon so as to give us a chance.

I'm actually thinking if taking my wife's shadow. I'm starting to really dig the little cruiser. :)

Well damn guys, thanks for the freebie. That was an awesome ride.


I'll let my followers be seen I guess.


Hmmm.... Just how far north should I take it?

Larimer County would work for me. I always tag and re-tag close by to keep the ball rolling so it'll be quickly available again for the southerners. Longmont at least.

Why are those other bikes parked so far away from yours? You afraid your Katoom will mimic the "potato potato potato potato potato" sound if it gets too close?

They didn't think I wanted them in the picture. I'd say something more insulting but after this ride I've pretty much decided I want a bagger. The ride down was great but coming back there was a lot of wind, a little bit of rain, and a lot of sustained 80-85mph stretches where my bike just doesn't shine. I really like the KTM but I think its time for me to just have 2 bikes (a dresser and an endure) instead of 1 bike to try to do it all with. I bought my bike 38 days ago and have now put 2100 miles on it, all of it slab.

A classic conundrum, test drive a r1200r before you decide :-)

I started thinking that way a few years back. Now I'm up to twelve bikes in the stable. (at least I have one for every purpose now!)

Be careful!

Kinda totally opposite here, but not.

I feel I could jump on my 650 & ride cross-country with it. But now I'm looking for something to putt around town on ( cafe racer-esque).

Motorcycles are a curse... I just want more, and more.

Once my phone turns back on (battery died) I'll post up the new tag. My buddy let me take his Electra-Glide out this afternoon to my doctor's appointment so I could get a taste of the big bagger. Lets just say I test rode a brand new Kawasaki Vaquero and am very very tempted to go back in to do the paper work. I also found a 2011 Vaquero on Craigslist for 10K$ that I am going to go check out before making my decision on the new Kawi.

Edit: New Tag



Here is the bike I test rode, it was freaking sweet
