Hi Andrew

I just remember another picture of your beast hidden on some dusty corners in my hard-disk... So highness can make his decision more sharply under the light of "lightforces"



Anything new about the "winch" project?

Does it suck that bad?

in a word. yes. I'm going to officaly declare those gas tanks as sucking, they just don't cut the mustard in my book. adventure tanks got it all over those things. if you're going to run knobbies, the bike has to have that look of left out at night, not a garage queen. the big lights suck down low, they need to be up higher. and those are too big no matter where you put them. I could go on, total front end replacement? what are you putting a springer on it? this bike deserves better. it sucks.

next.

you sold it so it wasn't worth keeping. I hope you threw those gloves in with it so you don't embarass yourself wearing them anymore.

Just popped over here on a lark... That first pic of the bike w/lights on next to the sun is sweet. Nice work.

Big Mizzle. Normally a black 1150 isn't too hard to get a non sucking rating. I happen to own one myself. However this isn't a photography contest. If you'd have posted the 3rd pic by itself you'd have been ok, but when you post your Hotel California sunset pictures, its downhill fast. Oh sure they might get the riff raff like Stone excited, but he doesn't get out much and it shows. I'm not looking for some artsy picture to frame here, I need substance, not shadows and drama.

Your bikes almost stock and at this stage of the game every 1150 should have something to make it reach out and grab me, and if not you better be able to present it in a way that does. As in brunettes.

You've done neither, so it sucks. When will you yahoo's get the message.

If your bike's stock cos you're not rich, then post it here with some hot bitch.


Hello! suckola. have a seat next to fekete, don't let him sell you a gas tank.

next.

[QUOTE=nachtflug]hmmm. Team Petrodactyl. Or however you spell it. There was a guy at Marcus Dairy in Connecticut about two years ago on a Mandarin, with his wife, touring the US on a 3 month trip. I believe he was a teacher. That bike was loaded to the max, but considering two people camping on a 3 month trip, who's to argue? Whats this Team Pterodactyl? Are you on it? Do you know who that guy was? [QUOTE=nachtflug]

Anyway, anyone who rides an Adventure and lives in Alaska is OK in my book.

Just saw this posting. That was us at MD. We are currently in Mexico and will write more when back in AK. Life is good as always. Bike has 54000 miles on it after a 17000 mile summer last year... thanks for the plug Hacky...

Camo Jo's Bike

On this most spiritual day of spiritual days, I unashamedly post the picture of Camo Jo's bike in order for this fine work of art to receive the blessing of our Holiness; Flug



Does this GS suck?

By the way, Moderators, why isn't this a sticky?
