    I received a VM from Ted Moyer about a half hour ago. An anonymous member has paid my dues for one year to this organization.
    Who ever you are, where ever you are, I send a big "thank you"!

    I had planned on having a motorcycle this Spring, but my wife received a dx of advanced stage Pancreatic Cancer on 2/14 (Valentines Day!), and I have been primary caregiver. This has been a tough...

    Need to correct

    It is an F650 ST.

    @classic VW: Why do you not like single cylinders of that vintage?

    Are carb rebuilds on that bike more or less painful that others? The local dealer tells me that the...

    I need the down and dirty

    Today I got wind of a 1997 F650 ST "Strada" in my area with 5830 miles on the clock. I called the owner and the reason he is selling is that his wife no longer wants to ride the motorcycle.

    ROFL!

    Believe it or not, I think Porsche did have an automatic tranny available for one year in the late 70's or early 80's. Not to hijack my own thread, but I am sure a Porsche Afficiando will...

    Garmin GPS install on a '73 R75/5

    What is the best way to install a GPS on this bike?

    very interesting

    All very good comments.
    I have changed my riding style over the years by trying to keep more open space in front of me. That is a full time job.

    My 2 cents

    You did not say where you are located.
