Got to love what some of these guys come up with.

Found a new place to mount my camera when I'm riding

Still rocking my Honda, but just recently added an Ultimate Seat (like riding a lazy boy down the highway), installed new saddlebags because I am getting tired of shoving things in my jacket when I ride, and opted for another fairing. Had one years ago and loved it, but the mounting system was always janky. This one will utilize brackets that actually bolt to the triple tree. Hoping to get this one painted myself. It will use 6x9 speakers which I was hoping for 4-5.25s, but I got this one with a huge discount due to a blemish that I cannot find.

Old shot with the color matched fairing...

Nice looking X. I am rocking the 1800N after having a 1300C for awhile. Just put some Hard Krome straights on this year to raise up the chaos a bit. It's always a toss up, Jeep or bike, when the weather is warm.

Had an itch that needed scratching, so I bought a trials bike today. Nuthin new, something to get my feet wet and see if the sport is for me

Have fun. They always looked like fun bikes to ride but my balance SUCKS and I'd end up falling off something with the bike on top of me. And I'm sure I'd hurt a lot more than the bike. But they are great to watch.

Almost done rebuilding this little thing to flip. 1981 Malaysian built Raleigh Rapide mixte.

Kind of the bottom of the food chain bike but helping out my buddy and his bike shop that can’t get any new bikes to sell and used ones are flying of the floor. Picked up four more over the weekend. One’s an abomination that I’m stripping for parts, two are late 90’s Treks, one I’m keeping for moi and one I’m flipping, and an 05 Trek 3500 that was once mine. I disliked it when it was new and I dislike it now. Flipping that one, too.

Awesome story Wildman. Good action on taking the course with your daughter and I hope you both ride safe for years to come.

I have no pics left- lost em all in the divorce along with my last two scooters- an 89 ZX-10 and 74 Sportster.
I'm mostly on different bikes now and my favorite ride is a 2012 BMC SL01 with Di2 shifters. Thought the electric shifters were the dumbest thing to come to bicycling ever...until I tried em. Now they're damn near a necessity.

This is Eunice, the old whore, I bought her January 1st 1979. She's a 1948 Harley Davidson FL Panhead first year of the Panhead and last year of the Springer. It's been many colors and many configurations I didn't get her quite finished and that's the state it's in still 7 year after my accident. The photo with the black Springer soft tale is the Black Widow that's the one that bit me in fact it killed me. I broke C2 through C4 I'm fussed from C2 to C7 I spent 2 years in physical therapy I was told I would probably not be able to walk again but I proved them wrong. By doing Yoga every day and refusing to be a victim I've brought myself back among the living other than my brain's not right I've done pretty good. For the last 7 years my mantra has been, PAIN IS WEAKNESS LEAVING THE BODY!
I still love my Harley's but I know I will never ride again. Just thought I would share with you all.

Great story!


I’m sorry you got hurt but didn’t leave you in a dark place!


Beautiful bike!


I wish I had something that could in my garage! Love old iron!
