Old school ride reports?

After searching for ride reports with folks riding old school bikes... I can only find few.

Anyone have some good links here advrider they can post for strictly older model motorcycle ride reports?

I'll start it off with kerncountykid's ride report on a 1974 Honda CB550...

So post your own or one you like... Let's see'm.

maybe one of these days I will get the slides scanned from my 6 week 12,000 mile trip around the U.S. on a '71 Honda 750. of course it was not old school back then. I bought it new just a year or so before the trip

I'd say he's the king of long distance on old bikes. No contest.

Me and my old man have a RR in my signature line. He was on a early 70's Yamaha Enduro if that floats your boat.

I don't consider my K bikes old school since they're fuel injected but apparently the gheys in the mods' lounge do since it seems as though most of the K bike threads get booted to Old's Cool.

Then again, this year is the 30th anniversary of the original K bikes.

Airheads, on the other hand, are most defintely Old's Cool IMO.

Anyhow, if you clicky the linky in my sig, you will see some K bike ride reports.
