That's my 95 together with my friend's 93 ST 1100.  Taking a trip up NH Rte 1A along Hampton Beach....

And it is rarely that clean, especially with all this pesky road salt they put out in the winter!  Good thing we got a heated bay with floor drains at the Fire Station for frequent rinse cycles.

Great thread - good to get other ideas visually.

OK, I didn't want to post this one for fear of folks callin' me redneck, but you really can pack an entire Concours in a Toyota Corolla.  Between the back seat and trunk there is plenty of room.

Nothing close to scenic yet, with no long trips under my belt.  But technically, this is the best pic of my classic '03 in the fast color, so there you go.



And to think that even six months ago I didn't think I liked the looks of this bike...what was wrong with me?  It doesn't have to be an MV Agusta to be pretty.  I guess what appeals to me is the elemental nature of the bike.  Nothing extra, nothing computerized, big motor, no BS.  I finally figured it out.  Only took 26 years.

 ^-^ New Guy today. Haven't even picked up my bike yet. Found a near-new 2005 on CL and worked a deal that included a trade for a rifle I don't use. Very excited.

My current ride is a 2004 HD FXST, the black one with the tall skinny front tire. It's basically two wheels, an engine, and a seat. Cool as heck, but a back breaker. I can't ride it for longer than about half an hour.

So, I got this near-new Connie coming this weekend, and I thought I'd check in here to see what's up with this bike, which I have always considered rather clunky looking, but, like everyone else, I thought it was probably a workhorse of a touring rig, which is what I want now that I am "wiser" than I have been in the past.

Previous rides include but are not limited to: RD400Daytona, KZ400, GPZ550, CB750F, GSXR750, Fatboy, Ultra Classic, RC51, CBR1100XX, ZRX1200R, and now a FXST. I have gone 200 miles an hour (Blackbird) and slid both wheels around the curves (GSXR and RC51) and run from the cops a time or two (see ALL above). THose days are, thankfully, far behind me now.

My favorite ride to date has gotta be the ZRX. What a pleasure to ride! But, alas, a woman in a Tercel killed it one morning while I was going to work. By the way, hitting the blacktop at 70 miles an hour will wake you up in a hurry. I don't recommend it. Walked away though - thanks to good luck and good gear! All I got was a broken pinky finger where her car door smashed my front brake lever against the grip with the finger in between, and a bit of road rash on my foot where my right boot came off. Wheee....!

Saturday I will add a 2005 ZG1000 (ten thousand miles on the odo, and it looks like it is still on the showroom floor). Seriously, this thing is pristine. The guy is very cool, and a bit OCD about the bike. He already rebuilt the petcock and installed new tires. I figure I just put some gas in it and GO.

Anyone want to buy a cool low-miles Harley? LOL.

So, here it is: (and no, I am not riding around with the blue cooler bungeed on the back. That stays with him.)

 ;D The guy just agreed to deliver the bike today. Cracking me up. This thing just fell into my lap. I gotta brag - I am getting this bike for $3,600.00 and a used Ruger .17HMR rifle. LOL. A bike that's essentially brand new for the price of a beater. Sometimes the gods giggle and toss you a bone.

Deal went down last night smooth as silk. The bike is beautiful, although I am going to have to re-learn the centerstand trick. Bike's a bit top-heavy, seems like. ALso going to have to adjust the susopension. It's as firm as an old couch. Online shop manual? Off to the search function.

I had the opportunity to ride from Portland, OR to Klamath Falls, OR for a business meeting.  That's my computer bag roped on the pillion.  Diamond Peak is in the background and I am about a 1/4 mile from the summit of Willamette Pass, on HWY 58, just over 5000 ft elevation.  Breathtaking.  Perfect day.  Perfect memory.

Here's my 2003, half-naked at my local pier in Cobourg, Ontario (right across the lake from Rochester). Shot taken a couple weeks back during our warm spell.
