Thanks very much for positing it up...I should have said something.

Small southern NJ motorcycling world. With this weather, I am trying to take bike to commute to work as much as possible. So, I am getting gas this morning , at THE WAWA, and who walks up and says hello? Bob(VtwinP).

Nice chatting with you for a few Bob. If I did not say it there, tell your daughter I said congrats too.

Can't justify buying a new motorcycle.....yet....so a bicycle was passable..and will get me in better shape for the hours of ST we sometimes try do on the weekends. Thanks Vin.

Next new bike will be something I can get back on the track with. I miss the track. Couple years from now I hope. Looking back at a couple years ago....2005 on left, 2006 on right:

My older bro just got his endorsement and is strongly considering the Ninja 300. He's stopping by Times Square today as well!

Too bad it's such an armpit of a place to ride.


I wonder if the truck will be visiting a dealer in a better part of the state, or in rural Pa..

looks like I'm first in line for a ride on the R1

{Edit} OK had my ride, and of course the detractors were correct, the ride was 6 miles of urban armpit, I literally did not get the R1 out of 1st gear, I kid you not.

Next ride I tried the V Max, what a tractor, and I mean that in the worst agricultural sense, no real power below 5k, after that only OK, but I am more used to the Kawa 1000, and that bike can haul.

Next ride I tried the Yamaha Tenere, OK bike but not my thing.

Anyone going to Rolling Fast on Tuesday for the Victory demo truck? I plan on going and most likely having breakfast in the Morris Plains/Township/Town area after meeting someone around 730 than heading down.
