    Loved it so much I sold so it so I could buy a '16!
    Bought it with 1 mile on it and I'm up to 85.
    Without this forum and its great members I wouldn't have been able to farkle the F out of it...so Thanks!

    Hi Bob, welcome to the forum!

    You should have pulled the kicker out your '87 before you sold it !

    From the number of TrailWays pictured I think Bob has been bitten by the TW bug. Should we tell him there seems to be no cure?

    With a little black paint that '87 kick starter lever would have looked mighty fine on the new '16.
    (As you can see I have learned to pay attention to TW-Brian's observations....he too has been bitten by the bug.)

    Hey Bob, have you noticed that the new one isn't as fast as the '87? I love my '87. It's a bit beat up, and dirty, but it's very fast. Welcome to the finest bunch of misfits on the planet,,,,,,,hell, finest in the galaxy!
