    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...

    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 :D

    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.

    Doug had a nice adventure on an old Indian he owns- last year's Cannonball Run-
    Rode his bike to NY from Alabammy to start with, did the run (mostly) then shipped the bike (thats all youre gettin from me- i wont spoil his story here)
    and rode home on a 70s KZ cop bike he bought. Read his RR it's awesome!
