  1. FromJust for the hell of it. See what the shipping cost would be. From Ohio to missouri. Lmao
  2. I'm always looking for the left turn in front of me. I don't ride in the blind spots if I can help it. I try to ride invisible. Cause I know they are not looking for me. This Guy was at a stop in the left turn lane. I slowed down watching him just sitting there. I got to the intersection and gassed to go through it. That's when he pulled out in front of me and stopped. Only going 25/30 mph. Hit Head on. 4th and main downtown Joplin.
  3. That would be to kool. Need to see if @luvmy40 still has that 83 . We were talking about before the snow hit Us all. Just getting it from Ohio to missouri is problem.
  4. Quick picture at the impound . Still started first time. Forks bent , plastic busted up. Impound guys are bikers too. Parked it in the garage till I get back to get it.. ty @cowpuc
  5. Sad news on 3/19/2021 the blond beauty has been wrecked. Left turn got me in a intersection in downtown Joplin, missouri. Head on with a full size truck. I slow down watching him . He was sitting still till I got to intersection then he pulled out in front of me. Me and Nana are still sore from the crash. Front tire almost touching radiator. Will post the picture of it . ASAP THANK YOU GUYS for the help with her she was a beautiful bike. Oh yeah was getting 33.7 MPG that day. Lmao @saddlebum @cowpuc @Pasta Burner @Squidley
  6. Thank you. @saddlebum I was looking at that. Thinking it was binding there. That will save a headache later on. Started a new store last night in Springfield MO. A 100 miles away. In the rain. Put the windshield from the 83 on it. Cut it down an inch and half to two inches. Was nice being able to see over the top. Again in the rain looking for a motel to take a nap. All are full. Got one in a small town. Mileage up to 33mph in the rain. Cruise control still not setting the speed. Going to clean up switches on the grip. Limited on time, tools and a place to do it.
  7. 39k original miles , The PO just rode it around town or to work and back. Just didn't go anywhere on it. It's was to big and heavy for him. Wanted something smaller. As for windshield I put the windshield from the 83 VR.on on it. I already cut it down so I can look over the top of it. Did it last night. To windy today. 55 - 60mph gust . I got everything working except the cruise control. All the lights the working on it. Been looking it over. The clutch switch is a little loose. It did jump once while in gear . Been going by the rules of KISS. and it's been simple stuff to fix.

  9. The motor on my 83. Blew after a 600 mile drive home. Started to get hot getting off the highway. Rode it home about 10mile. We we're tied and it was raining. My fault. Got a 87VR on Friday. May not help but someone posted a 83 motor same day for 250. FB marketplace in springfield missouri
  10. Happy birthday to you Bother. Thank you for the sight and all your help with my bikes.
  11. @luvmy40I want thank for opportunities to get the bike you have up north where it's been snowed in since I first talked about getting it. Bought a 87VR . Wife seen it 13mins. After it was posted. Got it Friday morning after we got off work. He was only 15 miles away from me and no snow. Lol. Had to get it. You wouldn't believe how hard we tried to get up there to get it. Thank you again VID_20210306_105725.mp4
  12. Got to do the windshield. It's like looking through a 1000 spider 🕸️ web when the lights hits it. Can't see anything . To short to see over the top. 5'8 I was able to get my old one from the 83 . Can I use it. I already cut 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 off the top . Still to short. Would sit on a boostersit to see over top. Will be buffing one out this week. The 87 windshield is spiraled bad. Does it have a coating on it.
  13. .Question about gas mileage? Getting 26.3 a gallon. Ran seafoam in two tanks of gas. Did let it idle alot to charge the battery. When I was messing with the lights and class stuff. (Radio playing). When riding after it warm up. I was getting a higher idle about 2500 rpm. While at a stop light. Normal idle has been 0900 rpm. Runs and rides good on the highway. Couldn't get the cruise control to work. My old cruise control was a thumb clamp on the grip. I got to read the manual to see what I am doing wrong. Lights up unable to set speed.
  14. Update fixed everything soldered the controls they have a bad solder on the back it look bad .,*+. All the lights working no idiot lights on all the fluids are full . No leaks.Time to go for another ride. And thank you guys for all your help couldn't have done it without you.
