just Getting broke in...

Only a biker knows why a dog puts his head out of a window of a moving vehicle.

yes,
they will just keep on purring down the road.....


the only downside is, we almost have to give them away at "end of life" for our use...
but the bike? it don't know its' age, it just keeps purring along.

My old 1500 still purred like a kitten, BUT once the drive shaft splines stripped out, the fairing was cracked by the 2 screws that hold front of fairing on, the bike would quit running at the slightest rain fall, turn signal switch needing replacing, 4 way flasher switch likewise, and it needed a rear cubby hole door. Still looked good enough some people that didn`t know better asked if it was a new bike. But it had 235K miles.

there comes a point when you have to ask yourself,
what is it you really want to do?
Keep fighting the good fight, or just trade it off and get something newer.

Or older, my '85 has 66K on it and runs like it. ALL of the factory maintenance is done and EVERY bearing and spline has fresh grease. The '81 will have 53K on it and have the same maintenance standard. I will not live long enough to wear these bikes out.

To all, when was the last time you greased your rear brake pedal pivot?

For most it's when it gets too stiff to work.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I grease the pads. That way it doesn't matter how the pedal works.
