It can be anything from riding or looking at it to major repairs or maintenance.

I'll start: thought about it. I did put 2 new tires on it Tuesday and finished repriming some of the plastics yesterday getting them ready for paint.

People ask us why we ride a motorcycle. For those who have experienced the joy, no explanation is necessary; for those who have not, no explanation is possible.

For some there is therapy, for the rest of us there\'s motorcycles.

2001 VLX 600C Shadow (Current)
1984 GL1200 Interstate (Current)

Walked past it without a second glance when I opened up the shop today. More rain again and possible freezing rain.

Looked at it several times with deep sighs. It's all in pieces waiting for parts. I wish they would get here already so that I could put her back together again!
