Haha, it's a big comb....Haven't had the need for one of those in years. I wish those boots were still around though.

The Triumph can plough a good furrow, so she is allowed to park there!

In fact, here she is a couple of weeks ago ploughing a furrow.

I got up Saturday to go look again. The salesman came over, and told me that he'd seen me in before. I said something like "I came in to look at that '86 you had, but it's gone. I don't know about the white ones". He told me that they had just finished putting together another '86. We went out back and they were just washing it off. I got on it, started it and listened to it idle for a little bit, them I bought it.
Cool story. How much did you give for it back then?



Here's my oldest ride.

GREAT XT500 shot in the mountains!!!

In response to the question: "Which ‘everyday’ modern bikes do you think will become future classics? The equivalent of the Honda CB750 or Moto Guzzi V7 Sport, if you like? "

Edgar Heinrich said:

"The R 80 G/S and Yamaha XT500 are there already."


Who is Edgar Heinrich?

"The man in charge of motorcycle design at BMW Motorrad right now is Edgar Heinrich. He’s the new boss of the company’s Design Studio, after working his way up through the ranks (with one break) since 1986."

Eventually everything will become a classic! Pretty much everything pre-1980 fascinates me...
Mopeds, enduros, scooters, choppers.
