Oh, come on now ya oldgoat. From what I've heard, its to hide them because of all those biker chicks that gazed into those eyes and then couldn't keep their hands off you.

Dang Goat that is still 6 more weeks yet..... It should be at least acceptable by then. Meanwhile I will just enjoy the AZ and NM weather where it is 81 today..... this weekend we rode in AZ in the Dragoons...Desert Daze where it was 88 on Sat! Jersey and chest protectors were too hot..... but the DosXX was very cold. The AZ people do not have the good chilis though like NM. They do have great scenery though.

I need to be in San Antonio by the first of April. The wife is already there..I might end up flying if the weather doesn't improve. I hate to drive down there. Its a great bike trip once you cross the Mississippi.

Hey old goat.....here's what you really need, consider it a PC800 on steroids...



1994 ST1100 hardly broken in with only 39k on it and for only $3900. If I didn't have 20+ bikes already, I'd be tempted myself.

Greetings Michigan ADV'ers.

I'm a few states over in Illinois where we have a fascist regime running the DMV. I may need some assistance from a Michigan resident. If anyone is interested, I'd be more than happy to compensate you for your time. PM me for details.

My main ridding pard has a ST 1100 Charlie. I love the looks and the sweet motor and it has better suspension. The PC is a much better town bike because the weight is lower, the ST feels top heavy. I'm perfectly happy with the underpowered twin and you can't beat the trunk for shopping and traveling. We rode out to Utah a few years ago and kept trading bikes because he was cramping up on the ST. It even felt cramped to little o me. On the hot days the ST puts out mucho heat and the PC very little. As much as I like the ST its just not for me. And besides, senior chicks dig the PC. You rode my bike and are probably still lusting...Nuff said.

As much as we kid, the PCH is an awesome machine. I've been watching its modern equivalent (the NC700X) lustfully

Yeah, but its the young biker chics that dig the Valkyrie and the rumble and roar of those six Cobra pipes. I may have lust in my heart, but it sure ain't for a motorcycle........I'm not THAT old!

Oh yeah! I want one of them. Maybe in a few more years on the used market I could afford one in good conscience.

I was about to go talk at my credit union today and see about a loan so I could buy a ural. LOL.. I might be a little young for all that yet though. Thoughts on Russian bike parts?

This snow and cold needs to quit. I'm thinking I might plan a Tennessee trip via scooter in the next month or two. Why the Hell not. I have some vacation saved up.

If this weekend holds out like my fancy phone says it will, anybody going out for a ride?
I'm also looking for cheaper gps options. My tomtom ONE works awesome but I can't get a ram mount for it. I was just jaming the suction cup thing between the seat and tank on my xr.
Yup.. random night.
