Glad you enjoyed it... looking forward to tagging with ya...
There I was checkin up on Doug and I stumble across another nugget.
Four old Honda 4's? Goin to Messico? Another good read. Thanks. Just read the first two pages. Looking forward to the rest. Must be somthing in the water in Alabama.
+1. You've lost the pics of the carnage - posted Feb 11.
Loved this...i'm not typicaly one to read adventures about bikes on slabs...but this one just reeled me in and i couldn't stop until i finished it. loved it all the way through, i hope to be able to do something similar myself someday. My dad has a 72 CB750-4 that i get to cruise a bit and it's such a blast! Thanks for posting!
Thanks for the heads up... I'll fix them.... the carnage pic's are important...LOL okay maybe not....
Hey Guys....we're doing another trip.... Nov 4-6 2011
here's a link
Well... we Finished the Dirt Cheap ride and that will be the next ride report.... time and opportunity. Great fun was had by all....
Great ride report and general lesson on perseverance Keith, I thouroughly enjoyed it! Also, I had the good fortune of meeting you at Barber this year at the swapmeetwhile I was scoping out your slash five.
I ended up with another /5... I'm just a freaking glutton for those things, Glad you liked the ride report. Simply a great time with no money
Casting around in the mists of time, I seem to recall a lime green 500/4 possibly the first road bike I ever rode when my brothers and a few mates shared a flat in Sydney back in their Uni days in the early 70's. Ahh, the nostalgia of it all. . . .
This trip.....your writing style......you must be Vermin's brother!
Vermin's Brother.. hope he had a better english teacher
Glad to see this story....it's great to see the underdog/less than fully tricked out ride to somewhere......with unexpected "happenings along the way". You inspired me to look for an old bike to rehab for one of the kids, hell maybe I can get a deal on a couple of the, and do a Northeast ride!!
Thanks for sharing, it was great for you to take us along
Thanks, again it's all about the mind set... building and riding junk has merit beyond the check book. Just don't get to fancy and enjoy the process
This is a great report, one that reminds us that you don't have to have an expensive bike with all the farkles in order to have an adventurous ride!
Thanks... Exactly... Mechanical simplicity and ease of Maintenance trumps all. Most of all you have to get off the couch
Who? Me? Up and at em baby
My first bike was a 76 550 four. Green and only a few years old at the time. It had straight pipes and was obnoxious! Took my motorcycle test on it and fast shifted to keep the noise down. Lots of fun, now that thing seems like a toy compared to what I ride nowadays. Perhaps I should look for a "parts bike". Great report, glad I stumbled across it!
watch out for the sound of a ratcheting shot gun.... ( just say'n )
