After dragging parts on the Street Glide in some nice curves today and reminiscing about my SV days I am, and have been, lusting after a Ktm 990 SMR as the next addition to the stable..... but then I think about an Adventure R. What's a fella to do?

Thanx for the tip & yes I did go to Bert's, its a great place. I was actually planning on going to the victory demo in october that they have in southern california. If that doesnt work out Ill certainly head over to Brea

I was out riding my old 1980 Wing tonight. I really like riding Gold Wings.

This makes me consider trading the ZX-14.

76 Gold Wing

I am working in Gallipolis, Ohio this week. Went to the local Honda dealer to get some generic replacement turn signals for my DRZ. No luck, however, upon walking into the showroom, lo and behold... A brand new 1976 Gold Wing with 0 miles. $30,000. May be the only one in existence.
Just beautiful, has the optional gold rims.
Would love to post a pic but only have my IPod touch and can't figure it out.

Wouldn't mind finding one of these at the right price. Parts would be a concern I guess.

There are always some of those Ascots at Mid-Ohio Vintage Days.

I am really drolling over the Concours 14! I think it would 10 times better than my GSXR600
