then, hey! what's under that tarp? YEP!, remember the mecanic who left the country 12 years ago!!! what was is name again? where did he say he was going ?

that kind of trouble and the fact that there is only so much room in my minuscule garage and only so much money available so i'll have to sell my '82 gsx1100ez to finance the gixxer...so, ya that kind of problem.

i should be able to work it out somehow!
Good story...

wish i was a dealer!

we haven't worked out a price yet but since they want to clear the shop and there's no papers at the moment... we'll have to see.
i could buy it anyway and break it, put the motor in my '82GS and switch the forks/wheels/brakes etc. to my Kat!

Guess I just like the old Vincents! I know the pictured bike has some serious mods on it. But the heart of a bike is its' motor and the rest is what a rider chooses. Ya know?

I've got a Suzi Bandit 1200 S. With tons of streetfighter (go fast), shit on it. Works well for the street.

Would trade all the street shit, past and present for that Vincent!

That pretty lane and all seasons...

"man that lane is made for shooting bikes in all seasons"

Looks like we both think alike when it comes to that lane. Very pretty country lane in MD and JUST north of Baltimore.




Grin... Those shots took me a YEAR to get! hahaha
BTW, not only pretty trees, they are sugar maples, so you can also drink em ;o) Sadly this property was just sold to the County for $3.85 MILLION and I lost a great hunting spot.
