Got new tires on my Kendon. That's 19 years on the originals! Greased up the bearings again. Still seem solid.
Imagine how many miles I could have gotten on my bikes if I would have trailered more to tags?
Only got 150,000 miles out of my 2002 GS, 45,000 miles out of my 950SE, 26,000 from the Triiumph and 17,000 from the AT.
Ok, so I bought another one- what's it to ya? And no, I'm not starting a VF museum
Just too good (and close by) to pass up: an original owner bike with 15,000 miles that's been off the road since 2010- when it was freshly painted. The owner hurt his hand and what with one thing or another never put it back on the road. He also had a very well-priced 748 that was very tempting- but after some consideration I passed it on to STMC and DESMO, and someone got the deal of the year. I have the fairing and all the other stuff, as well as a brand new Works Performance shock and very difficult to get square tube case savers (brand new to boot!)
So, this is what happens to you when you get old and decrepit? You start accumulating old, decrepit bikes that haven't run for 6 years, then try to get them to "walk" again? Pour hundreds of hours of "rehab" into the old, decrepit machines, throw some polish on them, and hope there's a Sunday "Bike Show" where you can trailer your antique to so other old people will ga ga over the bike with dripping nostalgia?
How about going to the gym, getting into shape, and riding the functional bikes you have?
You continue to raise being tiresome to a very high level.
Thanks! It's taken me years to perfect my "technique'. And a lack of sense of humor never fails to amaze me!
Have fun with your "Picking". I think there is even a show about your hobby on T.V.
And someday, you might be able to fill your backyard with bikes, like Mike in Waynesboro, Tennessee:
