I don't need another rifle, besides it sounds like there's already plenty of interest. However, if you have any mags that you're looking to sell... :)

You only have one bike?!?! I mean, I may only have one that works @ any given time, but that's still a terrifying prospect...

Been looking for a second bike. But I just don't have the money for what I would really want. I was hoping to find a deal this winter. No luck so far.

Get yourself a Stella, like HBN.

80 mile commute would be fun on a Stella. I was thinking an old 80's BMW maybe late 70's.

Old beemers are cool . . .

/5 series has 4-speed and drum front brake. /6 and new has disc (sometimes dual) front brake and 5 speed tranny.

Not sure why I enjoy Great White so much. A fair amount of revs on the freeway, shaft jacking on acceleration, the /5 forks definitely have their limitations . . . but riding it sure is fun. It doesn't handle badly, just different. Most bikes of that vintage were worse.

Now I wish I'd had a bike like this back in the day.



If I wanted to commute on it, I'd look at the /6 or later. I recall an inmate had a very nice R100RS for sale recently. Drool!

Please for your sanity's sake do not buy a Stella

YMMV

I wimped out today and didn't ride in to work. That makes two days so far this year that I didn't ride my bike to work. I have to stop that trend now!

At 20 degrees, I plug in the gloves. I find it nice to be able to feel the controls. . ..
