I miss my bike......

I was rummaging through old pics and came across my old GS500. Damn, she may have not been much but I miss her.

at least you don't have to see it everyday as a constant reminder that you can't ride it with this weather.

Hey- wait a minute...your avatar says you have an old FZR600. Kinda seems like a backwards move, why would you lose the newer GS500?

Explain!

GS was a 1990, the FZR was a 1995.

Huh?! Ever heard of layer up? My last ride was December 31 when we had a break in the weather and I loved it! I layered up and just had a blast. If it was for the snow melting and possibility of dark ice, I would've rode to work today.

Get them long johns and get goin'! lol

I'm glad you said it.

BTW, I had the Jones this weekend and had to fire the beasty up just to smell it running and hear it idle. It's still running rich. I wanna go riding.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Damn, I miss her too! Getting rid of that little GS was the worst bike-related decision I ever made. Let's see...I think I bought that GS off of Javier almost 2 years ago exactly. And now it's been two years and I think 5 bikes (most of them beaters) and what I am looking at in my garage is an old Triumph T25T Trail Blazer. Silly little thumper. Sure do wish I never got rid of the GS500. If those bikes did so well, why is it so hard to find one? It seems that the older models are like ghosts. Ah well, maybe I'll luck out some day.

By the way, Javier, the pics that I have with the black wheels (that you painted) look even sharper.

Screwball with a twist.

Actually I just went riding today.. for two hours... First ride of the season. It was great...

Strandard street boots, long johns (top and bottom), ski bibs, to keep the wind from getting through to the legs, sweater, leather jacket, regular winter jacket, bandana covering the mouth and chin with the helmet strap tied over it to keep it in place, and gloves...

And I wasn't the only one out there... There was actually a couple on a Harley.. both without helmets... The womans hair was just flappin in the breeze... now she was definitely cold....

...and that was fun how?? I have heated gloves, and heated jacket, so I need half the layers, but unless the weather is 65 degrees or more, I am not too happy about riding, and cannot imagine many are, unless you love riding in a straight line.
