Looking good even sideways. With the gastank on top (a few bigger bikes have them under the seat) and the front end mounted faring it will definitely feel top heavy (especially after a gas fill up) but you will get used to it. Is it fuel injected or carburetted? It makes a difference when mountain riding.
Yeah I guess I should have put that in there. It's an 01 EFI 5 speed with 26K miles. looks like it came off the showroom floor.

Thanks to whoever made the pics correct!

They are both hibernating right now, will be ready in about 2 months to feed my adrenaline habit.

Mine are in storage too right now. :cry: We had a couple days I could have ridden but with my sciatic nerve pain in my left leg I don't want to ride right now.

Winter is a good time to develop good back therapies. Avoid shoveling snow.

Ha ha yeah just went in for an MRI today. I guess we will see what the problem is now................. can't even work on my JD 332. I can't bend over for more than 30 sec and i start to feel it.

I'm dealing with PMS.. Its going to be a long couple of months.. I did send my seat in for new foam and cover since its has about 40K on it. Also going to do a full Traxxion suspension install on it in the next month or so..

NHCASE nice bikes!!

FTwing.. any changes to the seat or just kinda a refresher?? Do you have a local place do the work, or one of the big names?

My bikes all torn apart in the garage. Slowly coming back together. Just waiting on the funds to start ordering parts for her.

Its a Diamond Seat thats custom to my measurements. Been a fan of them starting with one on my old 1500 almost 20 years ago. Very comfortable with a closed cell foam and a velour cover. This one is about 9 years and 50k miles old. Its actually held up well, but its starting to show some wear and my front feeling a bit worn. Mark is going to rebuild the front a little wider and recover for me. My wife was adamant that her part was not to be touched...LOL After it breaks in, its good for 1000 a day if I want. I used to do 50k plus a year with a minimum 4 weeks on the road each year.. but the last 9 years, since I remarried and we moved to the new house, life got pretty busy and the mileage dropped. I'm planning on rectifying that this year and get back in the saddle hence getting the seat redone and upgrading the suspension.. Luckily my wife loves to ride and is all for it.

Thanks, I'm going to see a specialist about it next week. The disc will heal but the arthritis will be a problem. I guess we will see. It really stinks because I just got remarried 2 years ago and my wife likes riding also. We just bought the Elecrta Glide and were planning a 3 day tour of all the waterfalls in PA on it.

Son and I had off for Presidents day and the weather was pretty nice for mid-February. So, I sawed a little this morning, and headed out for a little ride this afternoon. Just a meandering ride west to French Creek Park with a stop Scott's Run Lake side.

Always nice to get a few rides in during the winter when you can steal a nice day!!

Mine is still all torn down for the winter. Started dismounting the tires. Its amazing how still and hard a tire is in a 35deg garage!!! I got the first bead off and couldnt get inner one off!! A few hours in the living room infront of the fire made it slip off like bitter!! I know what the plan is for the next wheel!!

Who will be doing the Traxxion install? I've heard good things about their suspension components.

My most recent excursion into the Great Smoky Mtns. This is Upper Tremont Rd, a nice smooth gravel road that dead ends into a parking area for hikers. It crosses and parallels Little River for a nice scenic view with peaceful sounds of rushing water. I usually take a thermos of coffee and a something to eat while I enjoy my time there. My steed is a 2017 Suzuki VStrom 650, a lighter weight motorcycle that is well suited for gravel roads.
