  1. I think this a the accident. https://www.ajc.com/news/traffic-alert-motorcyclist-dies-in-3-vehicle-crash-on-downtown-connector/PFTKAJ3SY5EJ3F7IBIVBPLWHJY/ The road is i85, not I75 at that point. I 75 goes left a mile or so west of there and I 85 goes NE past Emory at that point. The article only mentions one motorcycle involved.
  2. If I was in the market fo a new sallish bike this would be hgh on my list. But I'm happy with my Vulcan 900cc vtwin for my daily rider. https://www.triumphmotorcycles.com/motorcycles/roadsters/trident/specification?sc_camp=652010D2858A489AA955F1D5820B31D9&mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTTJNd01UUTNaVEV5TkRrNSIsInQiOiJQMXpuQXBcL2pycUZ0dWU2RGxjVjZtVE9RWTRXYWM1NTdqakRINmRzOVVpTWwrd2NUSmlydlR1UENqOTZvYmNQcUgxVElXWVVZUXZzTGVXN3VqcGp3WmI4QWRvdW9VZnVmUnoxV3g4Ylc0eVA0ZXc2R0hLempGaEdxSjlOZUdWSkwifQ%3D%3D
  3. let me know if you need someplace to send the beer?
  4. Good luck getting everything back on the road. I had to look up Carls Junction being originally from the St Louis side of MO. I used to ride the highway to Ok to pick up US 69 south to Texas. Stopped in Joplin many times.
  5. Wheels thru Time in Maggie Valley has been posting a YouTube video of unusual motorcycles in their collection almost daily. Today's video was of a 1916 Traub, which had features not found on production motorcycles until much later. Very interesting.. North Carolina still has them closed because of Cv19 so they're doing all their fundraising via the internet. They have some of the most interesting motorcycles made in the USA. They are raffling off a 1939 Harley that they have restored for a fundraiser.
  6. I'd take a 2-3 day ride thru the hill country if I lived in the path of this storm. Good luck everyone !!!
  7. Anybody here at Sturgis? Spotted what looks like a 2000 red Venture in a newsclip about the rally where 1/4 million riders are expected [video=youtube_share;f-2GPJeRoD4] Venture at 2:26
  8. Since I decided to try a semi-auto pistol for my ccw, I wanted to give Ruger the first try if they had a good pistol, and I read nothing but good reports about the LCP-II. I would have prefered a 9mm luger chambered pistol, but decided to give .380acp a try.
  9. Lewis, I have had a S&W 36 Chief blued (.38spl) 5 shot revolver for many years as my ccw, but found I was uncomfortable wearing it with summer clothes. I bought a Ruger LCP II a couple of months ago and found it to be better to carry in lightweight clothes (usually shorts and not much else). I wanted to get the LCP II in .380 acp but it was sold out in the local stores, so I got the LCP II in 22lr and ordered another in .380 when they become available again. Its quite comfortable in lightweight shorts. Whether a .22lr is adequate for ccw is a whole other discussion. The ballistic tests for purpose made .22lr ccw ammo lead me to believe it is adequate, although not the best. In any case, I am waiting to get the LCP II in .380acp.
  10. How do you get rid of it? I presume its illegal to shoot it and throw the carcass in a dumpster.
  11. Good for him ! It shows that old age and cussedness are a cure for any modern ailments.
  12. I've never owned whitewalls or cared for them. But my (now) newish Kawasaki Vulcan 900 has them, and I kinda like them on it.
