    Fuel pump went out about 40 miles south of home in May, 5K ago, trailered, and Paul Glaves taught me a trick to resurect the fuel pump, which worked fine until last night. Shiney new one will go in this weekend. Fingers crossed... I'm wearing out my friends, especially those who ride HD...

Lots of these bikes did not get ridden much, and many of us have benefited by being able to buy low-mileage C's at greatly depreciated prices.
    +2 on that!
    Although the hack was bought from a true rider!
    Gracie, the Gray "C" was bought w/ 2500 miles. It's got over 36k now.

    One for the little guys!

    This is the day that my 2003 F 650 CS made it to my house.
    Wonderful round-town kind of ride.
    Just got my 2004 R1150R, ...she'll be out on the open road soon.

    Here's my 2006 R1150GSA with 42k miles on it

    Recently finished the Alaska leg of my North American Tour. Here are a few photos from the trip so far.

    Along the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, we encountered so snowy spots that a little persistence, leg muscles, and determination saw us through.


    The bike decided to follow the rut, while I took another line, resulting in a broken leg. This is Death Valley. I had to ride about 40 miles to the pavement, and another 40 to the hotel before getting to the doctor the next morning.


    My girlfriend joined me for the Alaska leg. This is us on the Dempster Highway just south on the Arctic Circle, which we didn't make due to the road being washed out.

    In the yard on our way for a ride. See our little buddy. He just loved to ride. Now he is gone. We miss him.

    Here's a pic of my new (to me) 2004 R1100S as I traversed the country from Louisville, KY to my home near Seattle back in May. Weather forced me to go through Texas, Arizona, etc; it was a long ride!

    While not my bike, this rental GS was my first oilhead ride.



    The venue (Vancouver to Whistler) was so amazing that I began a BMW search immediately. One week later I had this in my garage. Not a GS, but not a bad start.

    I like the Honda behind it!

    It also seems you like red vehicles!

    Not a bad start . . .

    Nevada72 -- "Not a bad start" indeed! Looks like that 1100R is already farkled for some long-distance riding. I see it has spoke wheels; does it have knobbies, LOL? It would probably take you anywhere you would be likely to go on a GS.

    Not a bad start...

    Not at all a bad start Nevada72!

    Are you in Puget Sound region? Ride from Vancouver to Whistler is an excellent ride, just have to watch out for those falling rocks...and falling cliffs. Ouch!

    And...are you from Nevada? I'm originally from Fallon (and my football number was always #72!)....

    Ciao! BJ
