Thank you. I got her when she was just 13k years young a few years back. Previous owner just didn't take to riding much I suppose. Now over 41k and I've bought her everything she could want and ride it like it was meant to be rode. Wife's named her Jezebel. As in "Are you going to spend another day with that Jezebel?". Don't let her fool you though, she loves to do day trips together while searching for some greasy hidden gems to do lunch at.
mine is 11 years old, so far so good. her name is betsy :grin2:

My gal. My first bike at age 57 and a retirement present to myself in 2015. She's a bit of an entry level bike that doesn't get much love, but she's taken me from Mt Washington to Key West and from Cape Hatteras to San Francisco and back as well as dozens of weekend camping trips. The two features I really miss are shaft drive and cruise control. I keep eyeing the new Goldwing, but I'm not sure I want to deal with the weight.

If you go with one of the Goldwing models with the dual clutch automatic, they have "walk mode" that assists you with walking the bike around in parking situations, etc. (Forward AND reverse).

Been putting a little work into the old dresser. 100% LED lighting now. Cleaned up the crankcase breather system on the heads. Added an amplifier, better 6.5" speakers in the fairing, 6"x9" speaker lids on the saddlebags, and a new head unit. Put the quick connect hardware back on so I'll have the trunk again.
Found a pic of my old Ironhead and tossed it in four good measure. Man I miss that bike. It was a blast, and I've been considering finding another.

Edit: The pic of the bike looking like a picked over chicken was during my full top end rebuild a few years back. Running better and better since.

that diavel is so ugly...but damn so sexy :smile2:
Agreed...it's like the girl who's body is a 9 but her face is a 3. If it weren't for the great sex I would've let this one go.

159hp @ the wheel with a dry weight well below 500 pounds means she's a screamer and a clawer and never gets tired. Speaking of "tired", the pictures are the back tire after I took the Advanced Motorcycle Safety Course. If the foot controls were higher I could've used the rest of the tire.
