Yeahbut, since your boy didn't bury it, he didn't have to dig it out. This one made the front page a few years ago. I took great joy in sitting on the bank & making pictures while he worked. It was only about 92 that day. Oh, & that's my XR he buried. Made him wash it & my 950 when we got home.

His t-shirt suggests he is/was an NHRA Top Fuel fan. Probably wishes he was going a little closer to 350 when he hit that soft stuff.

Was & still is. Many years at G'nats that I will always cherish.

As for the mud hole, he kept going back through after & after. I told him to stop, but he said one more time.....

Meh! I think it's the KSO that turns people off.

Too bad, it's the easiest bike I've ever kickstarted.

Honda interceptor $1050.

The guy who's selling it has a lot of bikes he is trying to unload. One of them is a Shadow w/sidecar I was seriously contemplating. I like leaning, though.

I only talked to him on the phone but IIRC, he said he was moving and had to get rid of the bikes.
