1980 r65 daily rider. The bike was semi retired in November. It needs some motor work - smokes a bit and goes through oil. Has probably 80-90,000 Miles, maybe more. The odometer stopped working in 96. Just replaced it with an ace well unit two years ago.
I have had the bike for 22 years and love it. The only question is do I do head work or shoehorn a r75 or r80 motor into it?

Don't need no steenking GS!

Got out today for the first long ride on Barney. It was a blast. I ended up riding down this road bisecting a swamp that was low and mucky with patches of ice on the road and snow in the ditch. It was actually higher and drier here where I stopped to take the photo; i didn't want to stop in the really mucky area.

Those photos were taken on the East West Luther Townline Road, south of Highway 89 and north of Wellington Road 15. This is on the north end of the Luther Marsh Conservation Area, which is east of Mount Forest, northeast of Arthur and northwest of Grand Valley.

Are we neighbours? Where are you located?

Ah, that makes sense. Was wondering if it was someplace in the Beverly Swamp that I hadn't seen before.

I'm in Hamilton near St. Joe's.
