    so i wanted to share!!!!


    looked for months to get away for 3 or 4 days... I have worked thru covid, in health care,,,I needed a break. Renting a bike is not that ez......and then when a bike is avail it may not be what u really want or its just too far away.

    So basically I find Florida which was on my radar anyhew...and I find a Harley dealer I can rent from. Not my style at all...but I do like sportys.....I rent an 883....2015 or so... bare bones....no frills....and its not for the hwy..I want for tooling around town, bars and beaches ...up to say 60 mph. It was fantastic. It had aftermarket pipes.... the sound the shifting ...it was so much fun. But getting here and there required some hwys...that was awful.....man I felt so naked..so vulnerable.
    And yet in Fla most dont wear hats...
    Would I buy a bike?...yes.. but I really would limit my time and locations ....ask me after a few months or so..maybe Ill get more relaxed.... so much fun...

    and it sharpened my driving skills!

    been looking at r80's.....maybe even a cafe style custom.

    or maybe some
    peashooters installed..

    there had been the tv series
    „a girl is a gun“ ->s.o. transduced it
    to
    „a bike is a gun“

    maybe the
    „happiness is a warm gun“
    should also be transduced
    to
    „happiness is a warm motorcycle“

    I posted a pic of the Thruxton I built 10 years ago earlier along with a pic of my Speed Triple. Here’s another of the Thruxton, with an earlier version of the tank, because reading the recent entries in the thred always makes me miss my bikes.Name:  6D3AFE36-EEDC-401C-A8C1-B57B9D50E16C.jpeg
