Exactly what it looks like.  Onboard music.  The body with CD player was under the seat, I made a cable to mount the removable faceplate up on the bars.  Custom fiberglass box and brackets.  That when to an Autocom to integrate the detector and phone.

 

 

Okay makes way more sense the body of the stereo was under the seat. Hard to see the depth from the pic. I used to have a Sony Diskman in my magnetic tanks bag.

Portables of the time tended to skip in hard riding, and also none of them supported MP3 CDs.  A single CD was too annoying to fuck with for long rides.  That player could handle CD-RW *data* discs with MP3 files, and play them as normal discs.  So IIRC, one disc could hold about ten normal CDs.

Bike is at it's new home. LONG drive to get it.... about 2,550 miles in just over 3 days, including eat, sleep, and pee time. Only stopped for one night in motel, and at a Route 66 museum. Going to have a lot of fun with it! (As soon as I finish the garage....)

Congrats Alan!  Kind of blasphemous having it out in a dirt field. Detailing Dave will pass out when he sees this picture! LOL

That dirt field is my driveway, still under construction. Welcome to rural AZ! That is Joyce's garden shed in the background.

I had just unloaded it from the truck, backed up to a small hill to decrease the angle on the ramp.

Other questions: Yes, it runs, turns out it was maintained despite sitting most of its life. Could use some fresh gas I am sure, but new tires more. Has Michelin Macadams that I haven't seen for ages. Because of sitting in a garage and having relatively few heat cycles they weren't as bad as I imagined. I actually test rode it even, very carefully! 21 year old tires....yikes!

Felt identical to my '97, riding it was second nature. Very happy with it, just have to finish it's home! Speaking of which, we got the 3rd wall up today, 4th tomorrow, and roof by next week. Super excited about that!!

That is the XX already residing in it's future home...

Welcome to the country!

That is still on TV.  I watched one a few months ago and brought back the memories of the innocents of TV in those days.

Hahaha, doubtful with all that desert landscape Alan will need many farming tips....but maybe?  Far cry from when Alan lived on a sailboat in a Seattle marina with a cat when I met him about 20+ years ago.

The one on the left is the national defense service medal indicating he served.  Not sure of the one on the right.

 

Looking closer the one on the right might be the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal but hard to tell because of the bright spot on the picture.  
Color correctness is poor but that appears to be what they are.

Pretty sure you are right. I have both of those.

Joyce has big garden plans, but from what we have seen so far this year it is an uphill battle. Will update later...  as for when we met, yes, a lot of changes between then and now,  for both of us! Life has been quite the journey.

Very true, tons of changes! I have a 5 year old daughter. 😲 Conceived after vasectomy reversal.

No, I will take his word on the reversal...., I meant his daughter! 😋

As for the garden,  it has been heat and getting things to get a root system started. Second is rodents. There are some gentle, mid-sized rats called pack rats, and mice. They love some fresh greens! We had grapes starting to bud, and raspberries,  until no more leaves. Without much root system they couldn't come back. Late freezes are an issue too. Just generally more difficult than western WA was.

Ah, yeah, we had kangaroo rats for a short time.  I bought an electronic killer with wifi.  I giggled like a schoolgirl every time my phone said "KILL RECORDED!"  As to the heat, google "hardening plants" and also be sure to plant early enough.
