My brother and I rode out motorcycles from the Washington DC area to Hyder, Alaska and back a couple of years ago. This is me standing under the Hyder sign. That was a Kawasaki 2000. Nice bike but I traded it in for a Road King.

Cool motorcycles, I guess this road was hard but interesting

Nice looking lid! Is it modular? If so, Arai has done a great job of smoothing the joint! Nice CB, too. I'm still trying to find a way to further quiet the Emgo shorties on my GL1000. It eats fiberglass wrap in 20 miles. May try SS pads next.

Thanks @pidjones. it's not a modular... just a good ol' full face.

Sadly, i just enjoy riding and haven't had the time or space to do much work on my own bike. This is the first place where i've had my own garage, since i started riding in 2012.

I did just come across in San Jose called Moto Guild, where you can rent a shared space to work on bikes. Pretty intriguing, but the time aspect is still an issue.

I recently treated myself to a new Arai brain bucket.

Turns out a 7 Doors sticker matched the pin striping perfectly!

 

 

I love  that motorcycle

Nice bikes. Whenever any of you decide to ride "the Tail of the Dragon", give me a shout. I live about 45 minutes from it, and about 15 minutes from "the Devil's Triangle" (which I hope to ride later this week when things dry out).

Monday, I took a 600+ mile round trip and picked up my next "project". A 1979 GoldWing that I plan to restore to showroom stock. It will probably take the next two winters, which is Ok because it will keep me occupied. I'll post up some photos once I can pull it outside.

There is a vintage motorcycle club that meets in Knoxville at the Time Warp Tea Room. For 2020 (before the virus thing) we have a challenge to put 20 old bikes back on the road. I found a '78 GoldWing that had been off the road for at least 9 years and finally stashed in a fence row. Drug it home, stripped it down and proceeded to rescue it. It is finally ready for serious road testing.

I named it "Johnny 5" because it is the 5th GL1000 I've owned.
