    Have I ever said I LOVE my bike?

    The Tygart is worth the trip, and when you have the time photo ops abound!
    [​IMG]


    OH Yeah there are other bikes out there! I did not realize they serve Ham at the Park! Right nice of them, but not too Kosher! :lol3 and Obviously allows for special parking [sign in the background - up on closer inspection they ok! Not where I thought! ]

    I had to do a little comparison shot, and of course this is NO comparison! :wink: :lol3

    Thanks Mr DS! I am willing to wager you have some pretty phenomenal colors out your way too!
    She [KIRA is what I call my bike] was originally all black, and the guy I bought her from [Toyboy], wanted to know if I wanted some color and offered either that orange, or the BMW blue to match the badge on the side of the tank, and it was a no brainer for me! :rofl I tend to be a colorful character by nature! :lol3 :D He had it painted up for me and the rest as they say is History [or in this case "HerStory"! ]. She's gets compliments everywhere I take her.


    WVH You know who you are! I've been by there twice now in the last five days, and every once and I while I could have sworn, I caught a glimpse, just a glimpse mind you, of that black beauty out of the corner of my eyes! But alas it was probably it's spirit riding the Rt, 50 near Rowelsburg, whining and howling that magnificent Austrian engine all lonesome up in them thar hills! :eek1



    KITE my man! Where in the blazes you've been hiding? Secret mission somewhere out of country?
    Don't tell I know you'd have to kill me if you did! :wink: :lol3

    OK Kite I'm a little confused here! I see on your avatar you have that huge coffin puller, and now a 2012 650 V-Strom as well now? Come on help and old guy out here! I didn't think you would be completely satisfied with just the "Gold Wing"! :rofl

    I'm glad you took all those pictures in Maryland, if there were places like that in WV folks would want to ride there. :D

    Looks like the knobs wore off your tires.

    I'll be home next weekend.
