Ya, ya, you're forgiven. You are cutting grass and I'm shovelling snow. Crap, when will this end?

My nephew moved to Houston for a job. I told my kids to move somewhere war so we could follow them.

Anyway great you guys could get together. I'm not a big fan of training wheel sets but that one looks decent. Love the colour of the bike.

Thanks for the compliment. I also really like the color. Obviously it was not a very popular color as it is a stock color and the first time I have ever seen it.
I am also not a big fan of the kits. But for the price vs a full conversion...I will live with it. When my other trike (full conversion) was totaled, I just could not bring myself to spend that much again, especially since I need a car with high MPG's. My Sierra was killing me. So took half the insurance money and bought the 98Aspy and the other half to buy a Kia Rio.. I figure the savings on the gas in the car vs the truck is enough to pay for all the gas I use in the bike. Besides the wife really likes the trike much better because she can sleep easier and I don't have to worry so much about her falling off. lol.....Plus, I will still have the 75 GL1000 to go play solo and it is lighter for the old knees. all in all, it's all good.

But it's NOT a 2 smoke!! I used to own two RG500's, two RZ350 YPVS's, a CR500 and a TS185, all at the same time and they where all 2 smokes, I love 2 smokes, but now I just own the CR500 and one Suzuki RG500 (Bored to 600cc), still great fun to ride, but I have got lazy and enjoy my 4 strokes with electric start!! The wings sure look nice..

that bike of his sounded as nice as it looked too...I'm not Jealous i have Ginger :shock: ,,,,it was so funny because right now I have the bike sitting in the back yard under a tree and we went out there by it and the birds poo pooed on my Ginger and it's usually covered :cry: ..I looked up and said to Jim ..." now what are the chances of that happening???? He said about 100% ha ha ha ha....So true but the stupid thing is those stupid birds never once poo pooed my cover :shock: they waited until I took the cover off then they send their bombers out.. :lol: :lol: :lol: Oh yeah Jim, so I take out my new to me trailer with all it's fancy new stuff right... :shock: and I take it for a spin down 281 for a few miles and get back home I got out to check the lights again and noticed the freakin tire was loosing air,,it was freakin going flat man...WTF brand new freakin tire and I got a hole in it already...Fudge..Freakin Fudgy fudge man.. I removed the tire and placed a patch in place and it's as good as new again..Took about 15 minutes..I was so mad I just pulled the freakin tire off the rim after I got the top part off... :lol: should have seen that...funny stuff.. :lol:

No, it is not a 2 smoke....Havn't had one of those since 1973...had a new RD350 I got in 71 I believe...honestly not sure could have been 72 But, that is where I picked up the handle. It just stuck...been using it ever since. They were really fun to ride and a screamer for the short run.

My favorite 2-stroke was my '69 Kawasaki Mach III. :mrgreen:

That 1500 is beautiful. I still think those are some of the best looking touring bikes of all time, and I love that color.
