Old and Slow Back to the Future

In 1976, I turned my back on the prevailing motorcycle world and bought a strange bike. It had flat cylinders and a shaft drive. My /6 airhead stays in the garage a hanger queen.

But I joined the 76 mainstream this week when I bought a parallel twin chaindrive motorcycle. Yes, I am now a F700GS owner. A left over 2014 in cherry red purchased from Max in Brunswick NY.

Wish me happy safe miles. I am going to enjoy this stuff.

That is cool. Cherry red has to look fantastic! I am thinking of getting the Ducati scrambler classic just to bring back the days of riding in the 70s on standard bikes.

It's a lot harder to change the coolant in these new fangled machines eh?


If your palms get all hot and sweaty blasting around on the pavement like a teenager - it's just the grip heaters, turn'em off.


Enjoy the ride!

You've done that too?

I don't have to worry any more. Mine stopped working ages ago.



Happy trails with the 700.
