Looks Like the ride was much more fun than a snowblower anyway.

I'm seeing an optical illusion I suppose...
Looks like your head is moving but the camera isn't!
Damn childhood drugs!

New addition to the old Honda herd.

1968 Honda 305 Dream.

Have wanted one of these since grade school. Fast forward 50 years and I finally got one.

Thanks Mike. It is in increadable condition. This bike was restored 20 miles ago.

The restoration was completed last June. One of the nicest restoration jobs I have ever seen. The windsheild does have to go though. Not a fan of it on such a old bike. 1253 miles on bike. He even had the engine rebuilt as he did not trust all the years of sitting. Bike sat for 30 years in PEI.

Yeah - the first thing I'd do is remove the windscreen. Maybe the rear rack too (although it's functional). It's such a great looking bike.

You realize Jim that this bike would qualify for our minimal displacement ride this summer too.....right?!?

I had one, (305 Dream) but it was red. Started to restore it, but ended up moving when it was partly done,
so I never did get a chance to ride it.

Does anyone own a Tiger 800

I have really been kicking around selling my BMW 650Xchallenge this summer and moving to something else. I love the xchallenge but am spending more and more time on the highway and less time on the dirt.
If i do sell it I have my short list to a tiger 800 and a f800GS. I have read about 1000 pages of reviews, comparisions, ride reports, and anything else you can imagine.
I have had the chance before to drool all over Dryden Riders 800 in the parking lot at work, but have never seen a tiger in the flesh. Given the market whatever i buy it will end up being a fly and ride. I am looking at 2011/2012 models so I can pay cash for what i get. And the BMW and tigers seem to be right in the same 9-10K with similar miles and modifications/farkles
I am not asking to take anyones bike for a test ride, but just give it a good look and toss a leg over to compare seating positions and comfort.
I am out and around the north west a fair bit, and am not in a huge hurry. I wont be posting my xchallenge until the snow is gone for obvious reasons, but i think it should go pretty quick around here with only 8000km on it.
Or if you have rode both I am really interested in unbiased opinions. This bike is going to have to last me a long time, I know i better get what i want now before i get married next year!

Thanks
Gumby
