Does anybody else think Loring Land Speed when looking at this?



Just finished up except for plastics. There's a Bandit up at the races every year. I bet this thing would compete in that class. Bone stock.

I know this will go 157 with the fairings and windshield on it.

HaHa that was quite a moment... Just knew that I couldn't see well enough to Follow Tim up that rock bed... saw you out of my peripheral vision so I knew that I couldn't stop.... Have NO idea how I got totally sidways to get up that side trail - just really glad that I did! So much Fun! Love that little bike

Saw someone crossing from Richmond into Bowdoin with their sidecar rig at 6:30pm today. One of you folks, maybe? I hope you didn't get too wet.
