Speaking of track bikes, a local friend of mine (and long time COG member) bought an SV a few years ago from a fella in the Gloucester area and set up for track use. Last time we talked, I think he may be wanting to let it go. He joined NESBA and ran it at several of the tracks on the east coast. I also think he may have had it at Road Atlanta on occasion.

I know it's fitted with a Power Commander, but not sure what other goodies he has on it. He also kept all of the street-related stuff he removed, so it could be put back on the road without too much difficulty.

I know he always can back from a track day all pumped, but think he may have gotten all of that out of his system.

If any of you may be interested, I can easily put you in touch with him. He lives about 2 miles from my house.

No interest other than just passing this along.

If you are talking about the previous owner of my first Concours, I back you 100% on how he takes care of stuff....
anything he sells was taken care of, and is a good value!!!!

I kick myself every day for selling that bike after I made it "mine"....and when sold it had 138,000 miles on it....


y'all ride safe and have a nice holiday, I'm in the snow here in Ohio, did get to run thru a tankfull last weekend though....
heading to Hilton Head to see grand kids for New years.

I am.

Dona and you have a nice holiday as well. We're headed to Megan's Xmas day, for the day. Calling for snow the day after, but we'll deal with that when the time comes.

Time to be a picture whore. Took the bike out for the first time today. Only road for an hour or so. Even though I'm still getting used to the bike and the suspension isn't set up for me yet I'm still amazed at how great this bike is. I almost wreck a few times since it's so high, but for the most part I was feeling pretty good. I rode with my cousins husband who has one of the new Honda's. It was an absolute blast.


First time off-road



Getting a feel for wheelies on this thing. I will probably still loop it and kill myself, but this thing is by for the easiest bike I've ever tried to wheelie.





And the honda...

I can't remember my way to the mud road, so someone else name an intersection or restaurant for a meeting place. I'm good for a 11 or 11:30 meet up. Like hub, I'm not really up for having to get up early, besides I'd rather let it warm up a little.

There's a Church basically at the corner of route 14 and 33. We met there before or the Restaurant but that is further down 33. See you guys at noon Sunday.

I remember the Church. I suspect they may still be holding service at the time we want to meet up. In the interest of not interrupting their services, I suggest we go for the restaurant at 12.
