That twister got me scrambling as the Mrs. got the alert tornado on the ground in your area. I was not with her and she had no wheels. We are due north of Annapolis it did pour for a period of time but we had heavier rains earlier in the year. The river as it dumped into the bay though was something to behold the logs had to be flowing 8 to 10 mph not the kinda water you want to be swimming against.

My late hubby took a 883 and spent around 30 k on it, ported polished billet chrome, etc etc make it a 1200 I think or higher can't recall. Even have all the paperwork about the changes, receipts etc.

I brought it here thinking, crazy me, I would learn to ride it, nope parked never touched. To many years working in a trauma hospital.

So finally had it taken out and sent to be loved again by someone. With a ton of stuff, bags, extra chrome, parts etc. It is a beautiful bike, when not covered with dust. Even won a show.

first I'm thining; why not just turn the key and DRIVE IT OUT???? Same occurred to me when I saw the bike; then I read about it being pristine. So, then I thought; why not just WALK it out on foot? Or, is this just to give you an excuse to be in the Kubota cab????


heh heh

Have fun! I prefer the metal walls of a car around me.

Well dead, not turned on for years, flat tires, been flat long enough to crack, so hard to just push needed the tractor to help tow. It WAS pristine. But not at this moment. Needs some love.

lmao I refused to drive my tractor and tow the car and bike, with the angle of the drive, the trees, towing a car than a bike no way. Hubbies son got that job. Also used the tractor to tow the car up into the trailer. Worked great!

I'll take the open road . 360 degree sights and sounds the roar the twists and turns the rush nailing it in the corner shifting left then right and left again. Theres nothing like it as my ears are still ringing an hour after getting off the bike. And then theres aways the beatle that hits you right between the eyes ok that part sucks but it sure does

HOLD ON! Are you seriously intimating that being on the bike rivals being by your pond????? Are you being blasphemous??

Gonna have to rename the forums, @addy1 to GBF, I guess....sigh...!

sniff! Had to several times do it with a 500 lb mower up wooden ramps into the back of a pickup, so...this how YOU move your bike around, with a metal tread machine???? I'm bettin' not. I'd think it's a prerequisite to even OWNING one that you can walk it about, no?

:D :D

Mine had flat tires, with a nice flat spot, no way to put in air they had cracked. So roll ok on non flat, miserable to put it past the flat. The tractor made it a whole lot easier!

They are heavy with good tires can be rolled around a whole lot easier but having a tractor to help move is a back saver.

My wife bought me a large, cast iron skillet. It fits nicely on a turkey fryer base, so I can use it outside to Blacken. I went to the fish market today, and picked up a real nice piece of Tuna. The lady showed me the small end so, it told her how thick based on that, and she made the cut off the large end. (Nearly a pound and a half) We will be eating the rest tomorrow night. The wife wanted hers well done so, I started it earlier, and finished it off in the oven. Otherwise, the Blackened Redfish magic I used would have turned somewhat bitter. It turned out really nice. The cooked piece pictured on the plate is mine, medium rare to medium. My wife made a Potato Salad to go with it.
