That's my son on the white CBR600RR in the sport album and me on the white 1800 in the touring album. Unfortunately the CBR didn't survive the day, he crashed on the way home. He wasn't hurt at all, thanks to the leathers, but the bike needs help.

Well, he's grown up, gainfully employed by Uncle Sam so all he has to do is save the money to fix it and send it to me. I don't mind doing the work but I'm done with buying the parts. Got another one in the shop that belongs to his cousin in about the same shape, maybe worse. He gets the same deal, buy the parts and I'll fix it.

A funny thing about this is where he slid off the road and hit a guardrail post we were picking up parts and found pieces of another bike that hit the same post.

That sounds like a great deal! He sure was lucky ... the bike gets messed up and he gets nothing ... I wish I could have had luck like that.


The pics of your 1800 really gives a good view of the CT.


BTW: The last red 1800 in that link to pushmountain pics is yours truly.

By golly Bob, that is you, I missed that going through them before. How are you liking the handlebar risers?

Don't tell Baggy where it is. He'll be out there getting bike parts.

Hey! They are wonderful ! That day I sat on your bike and put my hands on your grips, I knew there was a set in my future. No more back and shoulder ache. It has taken a little getting used to, but well worth the effort.

Did you notice that my bike was not leaning like yours in the pics ?? I guess that is why that red ATV got passed me..

Yea well I'm unstable and can't keep the bike upright, have to use the pegs and engine guards to keep it from falling over. I just wish I had been really in the groove that day so I didn't look like an old man riding.
