    I picked her up and rode her home tonight about 140 miles. She's fine. Whoa Black Betty, She's so rock steady, Bam-ba-Lam,
    And she's always ready, Bam-ba-lam. Still early, but she may be my favorite bike.

    Just picked this up last week, 2015 explorer 1200 with low mileage. My first adventure bike after years of cruisers... I think I'm in love. [​IMG]

    Will you ride off-road at all with this big girl? Nice street bike but I'm curious how the big Explorer's work when the pavement ends.

    Here we go!
    My girlfriend just made her license on her own bike. The little yellow Ducati Scrambler.
    I liked the bike so much during her practice lessons that I looked for another one for me.
    So I bought a Desert Sled like 3 weeks ago and already put 2500 km on.
    Such a fun motorcycle!
    We did a 2-day-trip through Bavaria and Czech Republic and we only had the tank bag and my backpack.
    So right now we're looking for nice and goodlooking soft luggage options for more trips to come!

    The only thing I changend is the exhaust pipe cover and muffler cover with a friends Flat Track Pro version of the Ducati Scrambler.

    Very tasteful toning, an overall really nice image.

    Just enough mud, too, suggesting the bike gets ridden and isn't a garage queen.

    You nailed it sonnystile, Beetle bags on a Viffer. Bags that look like they were sculpted onto the bike, not just tacked on. I've only seen one picture of the same bike and bags combo. I will never sell this bike. Exhaust gives the bike the sound of a supercharged V8 engine.

    GORGEOUS.


    Facebook memories just reminded me that three years ago today I was on my Ducati ST4 with open clutch and pipes and my buddy on his 1994 VFR 750 with pipes and gear driven cams railing the TN/NC twisties for a long weekend.

    We sounded AMAZING.

    Both bikes have since been sold.

    Haha... And I know you do it frequently Jay! Of course we regret some of those decisions more than others! More than a few I wish in hindsight that I wouldn't have let go.
