One of the sadist days of my cycling history today. I took my 85 Aspencade into the dealer as the trade in on the 1800. He wanted it over the winter to sell it. It was a beautiful day sunny and about 2 C 34-36 F it is about 60 Km 40 miles to the dealer, and she ran like a champ, so good in-fact I started having 35th thoughts about selling her. She has taken me across Canada several times with Nair a hiccup, and all she ever asked was gas, oil and love. I think the hardest part was coming home and seeing the big empty garage. The wife said "great, now I will be able to get my car in the garage for the winter" Sorry hun, got a lot of work to do on the garage to get ready for the 1800only about 16 weeks till I bring her home. No doubt one of the happiest days of my cycling history.



P.S. The spell check didn't recognize the word " Aspencade" just thought I would let you know.

No question A.T.G.A.T.T. (Even when it's stinking hot!!)
And if it's too stinking hot to gear up, it's too stinking hot to ride.

If your not man enough to take the lead, stop complaining from behind.

16 weeks to get the nursery ready for the new baby. Like starting with a clean slate. I would be painting the walls white and the floor with grey or red floor paint (grey is better as you can see bits and pieces that fall easier, as well as oil and water leaks). If I really had time andwas in the moodI would put down those big fat floor tiles where the bike would be standing in it's spare time, with an aluminium or steel plate screwed down where the main stand digs in. A de-humidifier is a great buy, I got a big Luxaire one for free a few years ago and it keeps the air dry and pulls out about a gallon of moisture from the air every couple of days. Much better than a heater. I was lucky enough to have enough garage space to build a partition around where the bike goes so that it's well protected from dirt, water, flying tools (for those angry moments) and cars reversing into it etc. and there is still room enough for cars in the garage.
Don't forget to show us a picture when you get the 1800. Good luck!

PS, spellcheckers usually only reccy dictionary words. Aspencade etc wouldn't be in there. We can't add words to the database as fas as I know, as the spellchecker is part of the hosting service, ie out of my control.

Hey goldwinger, Im very sorry for your troubles and having to part with your 1200. But your real motorcycle life is only about to begin in 16 weeks. This is the time to prepare for the coming of the King () Get your accessories organised and have them laid out in your garage or get the dealer to fit them for you. The important parts are, (1) Trunk Lid Spoiler fitted with Electrical Connection Plug and Play run/brake light, (2) Tulsa two piece Belly Pan, (3) Tulsa MirrorAir Deflectors, (4) Chrome pieces for Trunk and Saddlebags, (5) Chrome Rotor Cover, (6) Exhaust Turn Down Tips or the three hole straight tips, (7) Chrome/Rubber Frame Covers, (8) Kuryakyn Foot Pegs, (9) Front Fender Extension, (10) Kuryakyn chrome Widestyle Lever clutch and brake, (11) Utopia Backrest, (12) Chrome Front Lower Cowl, (13) Chrome Battery Side Covers, (14) Kuryakyn Air Intake Accents, (15) Show Chrome Handlebar Riser Shims, (16) Show Chrome Left/Right Control Panel Accent, (17) Show Chrome Passenger Floor Board Side Covers. I think I will stop there for the moment before your wife has a nervous break down, dont let her see this list. There are hundreds of accessories that can be bought for the but a line has to be drawn before you end up with a xmas tree. I bought all my bits from [email protected] in Texas and found him great to deal with. If you talk to him nice he will even throw in some smaller bits like,- Handlebar Clamp Plugs, Chrome Kill Switch Cover, Low Profile Plastic Rivets, Replacement Gromments, Chrome Easy Clip Cord Holder, Replacement Bulbs, etc. free of charge. Tell him a guy from Ireland sent you. Happy shopping.

Well guys, if you were wondering what to get me for Christmas, at this sad time in my life (And I am sure you all were ) I think Redwing has covered most of the basics. Lets not forgettwo fullface and one 3/4 face set of "Ed sets". And Iknow if I try hard enoughIcould find a way to get some joy from all of these things, and perhaps in some small way bring the meaning of Christmas back to me.. In these trying times. (Big sighhh) Just email me and I will give you my mailing address. maybe we could have a telethon or something? What's Jerry Lewis doing these days?? I hear he is still pretty big in France.
