It's Winter ! My bikes are packed away until April, I'm old . Had a Rupp 5hp Digger back in 67. Rode it till my fingers bled (Bryan Adams)! Saved my money from lawn work and running errands for neighbors and bought a used 1966 Honda C=110.. Neighbors owned the Yamaha Shop. Started working there when I was 15 ? Had a bunch of YamaDogs JT1-AT2-DT250B-YZ250A-MX100B- MX250C-RD400C- Raced a SC500B- XS1100E. 1978 Yamaha Enticer 250 Snowmobile....I moved and then bought a 1984 Honda V65-Sabre, 1985 V-MAX, 87 Wave Runner... Moved again and started biking again with a new lightning fast 535 Virago , Polaris 340 Sled, Suzy DR350, Yamaha VMax600 sled' 99-BMW-R1100RT, 2001-BMW-1150GS, 2005-BMW-R1200GS, 2006-BMW-F650GS-Dakar, 2013 Yamaha TW-200, 2018 Yamaha-X-MAX, 2019 BMW-F750GS and most recently,,, A 2022 ZERO FXE. It was delivered because the dealer is over 110 miles from my home. I did get the chance to put over 300 miles on it before putting it away.
I've had 2 crashes that were long ago, One was my fault. Owned a business and sold it in 2004 then have traveled more than 275k miles around the country before I had a bout with the Cance. I survived that and also survived the Cove. I'm a senior citizen now and plan on driving around in my car during bad weather with the big Black goggles and my turn signal on with my gas cap flapper open. During good weather, I hope to enjoy riding at least one of my 3 bikes every day. When it warms up, I will probably ride the Scooter and the GS until I can find the fucking gas cap on this ZERO. Best wishes to all. Happy New Year and let's get chatty !!
Sorry I didn't tune in yesterday and I don't have much time tonite to post another rant, but I have a lot more to say. I see that there is not an FXE category in the index. Probably because I’m the only one that has one.
Have family stuff going on 2morrow, so I may not be able to log in. Does anyone have any questions? That is a Yamaha X-MAX over there as my Avatar. Great scooter that runs on gas. 85 mph, 85mpg. TC, ABS, computer screen, 2 full helmets will fit under the seat along with light jackets, KEYLESS !! My new FXE is NOT KEYLESS , Have 3 other older vehicles and this brand new 2022 ZERO has a fucking ignition Key! That is a Flintstone!
Colder than a nuns' bun here in western Pa for a few more days. Expecting a lil warm up starting Feb 1st for 3 days. Can't wait to turn the calendar over to next month! Sorry to hear about other people around the country with worse weather than we are having here. I spray washed my car the other day, was 18 degrees but sunny.
