The man is on a mission and closing hard on the goal. I am guessing he will sleep in his own bed tomorrow night. Congrats on a great ride......both ways. See you at Barber.

Hey! He's heading right towards me... I should have offered to buy him lunch/dinner. I hadn't checked in here for a few days.

My loss!

Assessment of the Bike

Doug,
I would appreciate an honest assessment of the bike (the Kaw Police) when you get the time. I've been thinking about getting one for several years now but don't know anyone with one, and haven't ever seen any around me (most seem to be way out west). Seems like it would be a good inexpensive bike to have (I have Drifters now and can't find any 16 inch tire with a tread good for dirt/gravel/mud).

Thanks.

Yep....and 72 is a fine road. He's making great time. Glad for him as I am sure he is ready to be home.

I stopped for gas in Corinth, MS. When i went to hit the road, the key switch broke. No warning, just fuckin broke.

I have always wanted to hotwire a cop bike......

According to the time stamp on the previous post it took you 14 minutes though...I think you'll need to be a little quicker if you ever need to do it on someone else's cop bike!

Thanks for bringing us along, especially for those of us who woke up to snow

Well that 14 min also included leaving the gas station, going down the road to a restaurant, and sitting down at a table.

I didnt know i was being timed.......

'Bikers' here)
In Mussel Shoals, AL
(Yes, the town from the Skynyrd song)

I got some eyeballs, i reckon jap cop bikes aint real common around here

If this bike works that good as pirate repellent, i may have to keep it!
