Would like to see more pics and read your ride report.

No one can escape geezerhood, fortunately they make super confy bikes today. I had a sporty on the early 70' and still paying for the dental bills, but it cured kidney stones in the first mile.

Don't see many 44s in any event. "Essential Civilian Use" production? Gotta be a tale behind that one.

Talking First post

Here is my old ride


But I'm married and needed a ride that could work for two people that could be ridden for long periods of time. I'm not really used to photography, so the pictures aren't the greatest.


Obviously I cleaned her up a bit, but the photos are of my first rides that were more than 50 miles at a time. I am in southern Georgia and you'd be surprised how quickly you accumulate bugs and grime especially with whitewalls. When I squished my first bug on on the way to Fernadina Beach going through the Okefenoke national wildlife refuge and the Bethea State Forest I was extremely proud...It was kind of like I earned a trophy. Cleaning up my bike after I got home gave me an intense satisfaction. I am looking forward to learning the art of being Adventure Rider and I hope to learn how to use my camera a bit better so I can capture and share what I've seen.

Seeing photo's and videos of baggers doing poorly at Deal's gap and elsewhere kind of worries me, but I figure if I learn how to handle her I'll be ok. I plan on taking my ride to Livorno with me, but I may need to get a secondary ride to handle the terrain. Anyone have any info?

Nice job Kirk. Did you make the brake caliper bracket yourself? I'm looking to do the same. Well done

Very nicely done. Will the belt hold up off-road? I have heard one rock will break a belt.

I had a template made, but then scared myself out of it (I need brakes). Decided to bite the bullet and purchase one from Fab Kevin. Although, it still needed some modifications, because the floating rotor is about 3/16" larger in radius... Can't say enough good things about Kevin though, his customer service was outstanding...

So far so good, but once it snaps, I've got a chain conversion on the list...
