    I don’t usually get to do this, and this may not be much of a trip, but I got to drive my motorcycle to work. Usually with my job, I have to be able to carry samples, and ice chests and coolers so I need to take my hatchback to work.
    Not much happening at work today, and I just need to be here to meet FedEx, the postman, and UPS.
    Traffic was very light in Oklahoma City, and the wind was quite mild, at least for Oklahoma,. It was nice to get on two wheels today. IMG_6551.jpg

    Beautiful Road Star! Hope you take the LONG way home after work! What exhaust are you running?

    Looks like Vance and Hines Pro pipe. Had one on my Road Star as well.

    Good eye! Yes the previous owner put that on. He gave me the factory pipes as well in case I wanted to take it back to factory spec. But these Vance pipes really sound good.
    That's a nice looking bike. I guess when u say "had" that implies u no longer have it?
