Rode only about 6-8 miles today. Mostly city streets. You see, it's a mere 105 degrees so, riding in that kind of temps, makes one feel like a piece of bacon after a short bit. So, it's back to my EARLY morning rides, around 05:30-06:00 or so. At least it's tolerable then.
I wanted the R1200C since it was 1st manufactured. Couldn’t afford it. I think it was one of the last bikes with that anti-dip front suspension. Such an innovative piece of monkey-motion. I know anti-lock brakes replaced this, but I still wanted one.
Now that I’m able, I may have to have BMW as a 2 wheeled resident of my garage. Not a new one- still outside my price range- but something with EFI and that anti-dip front end.
And the Yamaha got rave reviews as to the handling best I remember. The looks just didn't catch on with the public's eye. Kinda like the Honda PC 800 bodywork that was ahead of it's time. Funny how several years later once the Goldwing morphed into the PC style it was a huge success. Now a PC purchase is an investment.

I snagged this idea from the other forum I check daily (www.infamousnissan.com) because it is super popular there.
I replaced my old grips with a nice set of Pro Grip 714s ($9.99 shipped from www.motorcycle-superstore.com), swapped out my fuel petcock because it was nearly impossible to...
Hi folks. New to the forum. Been lurking, but just signed up. Like the title says, I'm curious what the dealerships in different states are getting for a new TW. If you have purchased new recently or gotten a quote, please post up the info on the cost. I'm in So Cal and do realize if I buy...
I am looking at adding a hunting rifle to my TW but need some ideas. I currently have a Cyclerack for my back rack and a precision rack for my side rack. Does anyone have any ideas or tips on the best way to secure a gun case to my TW? I have a bear hunt that starts today and...
The following is aimed at new members – but some of the older ones could do worse than read this “sticky” – and it comes in the form of a “request” …..
