  1. I'm still around! Out in the boonies but still breathing! I just don't get on here very often.
  2. In English Please! I'd also like to see someone build a ST bike for short people. There isn't, and so far as I know hasn't, been a ST bike with a less than 32in seat height made in the last 10+ years. I have a 28in inseam. I can't even ride a stock Venture flatfooted. If I mount the Mustang seats on my RSTC, I can't flatfoot it either! Fortunately I have a set of "Butlerized" seats for both my RSV trike and the RSTC. Are you still out there Rick? I've got another seat I'd like you to do!
  3. Well, depending on where this was shot will determine who gets the ticket. That is if the two idiots on the bike survive! Something tells me it won't be the truck driver!
  4. I used to have a mare that thought the hubby was the greatest thing since carrots. She'd follow him around, insist he pay attention to her and ONLY her. She wasn't very high up in the herd pecking order but that would change if he was around. She even got jealous of her own foal getting attention from him. Feeding time was especially fun as I'd be putting out the feed buckets and if the hubby was around, she'd have a time trying to decide if it was more important getting him to pet her or eating!
  5. Has anyone ever triked one? I'd love to see what that would look like!
  6. A lot of the accessories for the 10/22 cost more than the gun. I have one and am repeatedly blown away by what folks will put into theirs.
  7. I have the exact same bike, maybe not with all the goodies though! I am interested so how about price?
  8. Hail to our fearless leader and all of the other bike nuts out there! Well, I'm still among the living. I've spent so much time up in Illinois in the last two years taking care of family, I was only home about 4 months out of that time. I got bike fever so bad while I was there that I added to my collection by buying a 2006 Suzuki Burgman 400. Partly to have something to ride and partly to have something small enough to carry on the motorcycle hitch rack I'm planning on mounting on the back of an RV so I don't have to pull a trailer to have a bike along. The 400 has enough get up n go to do highway [ I actually have to watch myself on it! ] so not more than the usual "look out for the cagers" worrying when I'm on it. I still have B2Dad's '08 trike but it's been sitting at home while I was gone. Before anybody gets up in arms about it, the bike starts just fine and I rode it whenever I got to go home for a bit. I keep Seafoam in all of my gas tanks to prevent the problems that grounded my RSTC. The hubby passed away the end of June so I'm on my own these days, but I plan to go ahead with some of the stuff that we had planned to do so some of you may get to see me running around the country every so often. I've also added a 4 legged friend to the collection. Her name is Andromeda, aka "Andi", a just turned one year old German Shepherd who is living proof of two of the GSD's nicknames, German Shedders [black hair everywhere] and German Shredders [bits and pieces of everything she can get her teeth into!].
  9. Since this seems to be the latest gathering of the gun nuts on here, I thought I'd add my two cents worth and ask a question or two. On the derringer, is that part of the Judge line? A friend of mine has one of the revolvers and just loves it. She especially likes the variety of "self protection" rounds and has fired both the .410 and 45 cal rounds out of it. In .45 it kicks like a mule but she loves the "nice big holes" it makes. Like me, she spends a good deal of time on the road by herself [her kids are all over the country] and does not like to travel without it. I had a Walther PK380. Neat gun and one of the easiest autos to use, something I have to watch as my hands don't like the amount of work it takes to operate most slides. We had a house fire about 2 years ago and the Walther got cooked [managed to save my 22 rifle tho!]. I've spent so much time the last two years away from home, I haven't been able to replace it. I've started looking again to see what's out there. Not a lot of places carry my gun so I've been checking to see what else is available. One gun I was offered is the S&W .380 EZ. Anybody have this? Supposedly designed specifically for folks who have hand problems as I do. I will be checking into it. Any other suggestions from the crew?
  10. IF I ever get to go home and get that damn title you will!! Too bad you aren't closer to me. I'd let you work on the RSTC in exchange for the 650.
  11. Anyone in this part of the country knows Audrey Menarik of Moto Liberty in Dallas. She posted this on Facebook yesterday. Motorcycle friends.... NEWSFLASH! I am going to host a Motorcycle Show. It is called The Motorcycle Camping and Adventure Touring Show, and it will be held in Lewsiville at the convention center, December 15th & 16th. Why am I doing this when I already have two full time jobs? Because the motorcycle business has been tough. After much contemplation, I think people still want to ride their motorcycles, but they don't want to ride on busy city streets. So, let's all find fun ways to get the hell out of Dodge... get back to what motorcycling is supposed to be about and hit the open road! Sleep under the stars.... (or not). But DFW motorcycle dealers are all on board for this LOCAL show, that will support LOCAL shops. It's not only about the guy that spends 30K on his BMW to head to Alaska. It's also about the college students that can strap a tent to the back of their bikes and ride to the KOA Campground. I've got lots of plans for educational, informative and fun presentations. And, we'll be camping Saturday night at Lake Lewisville to practice what we preach. I'm only a week into this project, so gimme a few weeks for more details, but as my friends... I wanted you to be the first to know. (And perhaps the first to volunteer to help!) Have a great Labor Day weekend! Audrey (P.S. Feel free to share with friends who may be interested in exhibiting or attending.) I've never been able to attend one of her lil shindigs as Dallas is just too far for me to do a day trip but I will try to attend this even if I have to leave the bike behind and haul my travel trailer up there instead!! :happy65:
  12. That was my driver's ed. car! I've always wanted one.
  13. I know what you mean! I'd trike the the Valk as well. One of my favorite bikes has always been the Valkyrie Interstate ever since I first spotted one up in Illinois a few years back and followed it to find out what the heck it was. I even asked the guys what it would cost to convert that maroon lovely into one. I'm also curious as to what the blue one that is still coming looks like. I have to go back down there in about two weeks so I may just get to find out.
  14. I made a run yesterday down to Katy, Texas. Time for some semi serious shopping [new house] and to see what else I could find. One of my regular stops when I make this trip is WildWest Motorsports [aka WildWest Honda, aka Katy Honda] hoping to pick up a copy of the owner's manual for my Honda Rancher. I spent some time talking to one of the guys about the SV and if/when Yamaha would get any more out [they're the local Yam. dealer as well] when I was shown some of their latest acquisitions. VERY Interesting!! Seems the outfit pulled a raid on Honda's warehouse and bought a large number [i was told 30] of new/old stock. If anyone is interested they now have a collection of '14, '15, thereabouts Honda 250 Rebels and CBR300's, fresh out of the crate, all of which are priced at $3K. What had me coming down with a serious case of wishful thinking was a pair of Valkyries. A 2014 black and [my personal favorite] a gorgeous 2015 maroon red. Like the smaller bikes, these are crate fresh. Listed price $10K!! If I didn't already have my trike, I'd be figuring out ways to buy the red one as that is likely the only way I'd ever get a bike with the GW engine in it unless it was triked. There's a third one, blue version, coming in as well. Also, I also made my first stop at the Katy Buc-ee's which is one of their newest. For those not familiar with these, they are "convenience store/gas stations" scattered around north, central and southern Texas. Calling most of them "convenience stores" is a massive understatement. This one is huge. Restaurant, bakery, clothing, jewelry, picnic/camping supplies, stuffed beavers [their "mascot"], etc., they have to be seen to be believed. Typical Buc-ee's, no 18 wheelers allowed even though the end set of pumps is diesel/DEF only. The thing that got my attention was going by the pumps which have 3 pump handles, diesel, ethanol gas, and non ethanol gas. The attention getter was that one pump island in each row had regular 87 octane non ethanol and the other had premium 92! Not cheap tho as the 87 was $1+ higher than the ethanol gas and the 92 was even higher. So anyone who like to buy theirs "straight", you now know where to look!
