Well, I jumped in with both feet again. Tomorrow morning I will be riding the ST4 down to the local dealer and then I will ride home on a new Sport Classic!

She'll be a red GT1000 with Termi pipes and bar-end mirrors. I just figure I can't let Sarnali recycle his bikes more than I do! The ST4 was a great bike over 24,000 miles.

I just realized that all my current bikes will be air-cooled.

45 degree Vtwin
90 degree L twin
Parallel twin 2 stroke
Single 80cc 2 stroke

Not a radiator among 'em! And not one over 100 hp. I'm not gonna have any fun!:cool:

I think my current bunch may not have 100HP when added together!

You lose the 'Busa?

Buz, you're gonna have to throw a die to choose your steed du'jour!

Well I rode the H-D today because I needed to go to the mall and pick up my laptop from the Apple dealer and then I rode the RD400 around town just to piss people off!

Dang that thing is loud.

...put in 20:1 premix and then ride back and forth in front of the Sierra Club offices. Then do the same in front of the Federal Bldg where the EPA has its offices.

Well they banned leaf blowers in Del Mar. Maybe I'll ride this around there just to remind the locals of the good old days!

Uh, I think the Huffy would be a better choice...

...for weed-wacker imitations. In fact, that was the name of our motorized bicycle gang "Hell's Weedwackers".

Had a patch and everything...and you don't want to know what a prospect had to do to join...

Go to a local gun shop..

..buy a tin can of Benjamin .22 Caliber pellets for a pellet gun. The can is a perfect fit for making an air cleaner (that's what was on it when you got it). Cut a hole in the bottom of the can, to fit over the carb mouth, along with two 1/8th inch holes for the screws, and cut a big hole in the screw-top lid, and cover it with some wire mesh. Get some foam rubber for filter material, and bingo, neat lil' air cleaner.

We made prospects ride a flat black rattlecan 1981 450 Suzuki twin with a brown his 'n hers step seat, 6' sissy bar with a Maltese cross, ape hangers, and streamers on the grips for a month of Friday nights through Tujunga, down foothill blvd. If the prospect didn't get beat to death, or shot by the townsfolk who's motto is "it's a black & white world homie" they were in like flynn. Of course then they had to do the "walk of fire" afterwards, but that's another story...

Well you've exceeded my mechanical ability by about 1000% but at least I know where a gun shop is.

Did it have something to do with "shaving" a particular body-part, with a particular type of "razor"? :-o
