After getting back into the " passion " of moto 3 years back, it's just a matter of when I'm going to add some cool American iron to my corral...
Ride what you enjoy and enjoy what you ride.. leave the politics for the politicians. Be kind to one another fellow bikers, it's a diminishing passion!

I thought this thread was about stuff you bought recently. It's not the place to tell us how cute or hip or buff or cool you are.



How about we get back on track please.

I traded my 86' FXR project and some cash for this ready to roll 93' FXRP today. I got some nice saddle bags with it too. It needs nothing but I have a few changes planned. I love this thing.
What years of these bikes should be avoided? I would love to have a dyna but just don't know much about them. They're also expensive around TN.

I bought something non motorcycle related recently, and even managed to get it working!


Much like bikes, I like buying stuff "for parts" and finding out im slightly less ham fisted than the previous owner.

A 40-50's Roamer watch with an MST372 movement.



Thats pretty damn cool man. Good work on giving her new life. I like old watches.

No picture, but had a new Pirelli Snow Control series 3 mounted today, and just finished bolting it up on the GL1800. Our trip West pretty well did the Yoko Envigor in. Gotta love a 900 lb + motorcycle that you can lean on the crash bars, swap the rear wheel, pick it back up and put it back in the garage in 15 minutes or less.

Thanks, originally I bought it as a parts watch to feed another 40s Roamer I have, but upon opening it, it was just too nice and complete to cannibalize. Got to find another one now

Thinking about buying a CBR600 as my fifth bike if I could convince my wife. Recently we are arguing a lot about my bikes because she's thinking I'm wasting our time and money on bikes. She wants to buy a commercial property in Costa del Sol as an investment but actually I don't think it's a very good idea to invest in somewhere you are not acquainted with. God, everything was easier when I was single..

It's not a Monster but with my stitching, maybe it belongs in the mad doctor Frankestein's castle

Seem to be some bits missing though and fairing tops are apparently not available anywhere in the world, so I am stocking up on chewing gum and string to see what can be done with it.

Also not sure that aluminum duct tape is a DOT approved mounting method.

Bought me a 2013 tiger 800xc today. Newest bite I've ever owned.
Plus I gotta recommend the 10ft ramp if you have a full size. Made it easy to load and unload the 500lb bike. I wouldn't load it much past that since its rated at 600lbs, but so much nicer than a 6ft ramp. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00P9WLADK?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

It’s true when they say, “Pick your Battles” and “Happy Wife, Happy Life”.
But it basically boils down to... if you let her win some, she’ll be be more compliant when you want something.
This has served me well in my own marriage.
Just my .02. Take it for whatever you think it’s worth ;)

Or turn into that skid and buy so many bikes she can't tell when another one or two show up. ;D
