so yes, tech that works in a vehicle that is supposed to get you from one place to the other is why people buy bikes......

My 71 Shovelhead. It's coming along, lowered with new shocks and 2" under fork legs, going to open primary this week.

Soon the rear fender will get changed, I'm going for the bobber look.

Just picked up my dream bike last week, a 07 BMW R1200S. Still can't believe that I was able to find one so close to me with only 2800 miles on it--only 400 or so of them were ever imported into the States.

Do need find a new set of tires though; the current ones are made in 2005...

Considering I am more of a sport touring than a knee dragging person, I was thinking of pilot road 3. Now need to find a good bike tire shop in Chicago that won't charge me a arm and leg for the mounting.

My 09 Buell firebolt. I've been thinking about getting rid of it. I hardly ever getting a chance to ride it because I'm always working out of state. It only has between 200-300 original miles.
