  1. That XX is a great bike. They all are!!!!
  2. OK gang, since I've acquired the FJR, I am going to sell the Blackbird, I don't need two bikes that do the same thing. I may acquire a bike to learn how to ride in the twisties better if I get enough out of her. Shorter wheelbase, lighter, etc.......... I'd rather she go to somebody here that I know that will take care of her and here is the question. Would you rather have her set up for touring like she is now, or do I return her to stock and sell the farkles seperately? The non stock parts are as follows. Givi windshield LSL bars with BMW grips Braided brake lines, still linked. Pazzo levers Daves peg lowering brackets Ohlins shock Yosh slip ons Corbin seat with backrest Mirror extenders Fenda extenda John's cam chain tensioner New Honda rectifier right after RedNeXXt last year. 38,xxx miles Very good condition, you've seen her. She purrs like a Honda. I'd rather sell her like she is without having to take the time to return her to stock but I will if necessary. Anybody want her, PM me if you do? No dibs called on the aftermarket parts yet, I would take them off and list them all at once, easier to keep track of that way. I have the stock seat, mufflers, levers, windshield, etc that would go with the bike. No long distance deliveries, time is tight these days. $4500 gets the title put in your name. Thanks, Pat
  3. WTB: 1973 Maverick Grill

    Growing up, buddy had a Maverick like that. Had a 302 in it from the factory. It was a fast sleeper, surprised many Camaros and Firebirds stoplight to stoplight.
  4. WTB: New Toy

    I have a flotation device that is shaped like a woman. No leaks, it's been plugged several times.
  5. Any pro painters in the house?

    Sherwin Williams is what I've had the best results with. I was told it says the most flexible which causes it to crack less not allowing any water to get underneath. I am an amateur, never been paid to paint anything. Usually just my house or my Moms.
  6. Is the studmuffin included in the sale?
  7. In a few years right before I retire, I'm going to persuade you into buying a new Goldwing and farkling it up so I can purchase it when I retire then I ride around the country and pester all you sons a bitches on a regular basis.
  8. People know a great deal when they see it!
  9. 2016 Yamaha FJR1300ES

    Good things happen to good people. Congrats!!!
  10. Yea, like pics of the new FJR!
  11. It's because the ST is a Honda with the Honda reputation of reliability to go along with it. Not that there is anything wrong with a Concours, Mine has a Hondalike fit and finish about it, just not the reputation.
  12. Dang it, and I just bought the Concours.
  13. Beautiful bike. It will go quickly. And somebody gets lucky to get such a nice bike.
  14. "Figuring how full of shit Tom is, takes a little bit longer."


    I am ashamed I didn't think of that.


    Dammit, I'm slipping.

  15. The bike has been sold, it is going to a good home. Selling the FJR, bought a 2015 Concours. Offering the FJR up to you guys here first. 34,xxx miles. Stock except for Helibars upper triple tree that moves the bars up and rearward (very comfy), fork brace, crash buttons on side of bike, helmet lock, saddlebag liners, fenda extenda, throttlemeister cruise control, G2 tube that really smoothes out throttle application. Tires are good, the edges aren't worn at all, just the centers. Yuasa battery a year old. Oil changed twice a year with Amsoil, I just changed it. Has Yamaha silver striping on the sides and FJR/Yamaha tuning fork stickers on the rear of the saddlebags that reflect brightly when illuminated by headlights. Paint is 2007 black cherry and is in 99.44% condition. Runs and stops like new $5,000 is the price and you take it home.
  16. Hell yea, you are past due for a goetta breakfast! You know, I never eat the stuff. I grew up 25 miles north of Cincinnati and goetta is very localized to Cincy.
  17. Looks better in the bright sun, we just haven't had much lately. Rain, rain, rain.
  18. Heck yea, 45acp, 9mm, .556, and 12ga slugs.
  19. Nope, too far from Cincy for me.
  20. That bike is beautiful and set up just right for us mature riders, higher bars and lower pegs!
  21. I love farkling up my motorcycles, it's relaxing and I'm making them better dammit.
  22. That is a sweet bike, somebody will love it.
