Hey guys!

Hi all!

I've been riding on the street for 31 years, a variety of japanese and european bikes. Current ride is an 89 FJ1200, with an '00 1200 Bandit recovering from a too long rest.

Love the FJ, bought it this past summer when i got the bug for a classic 80's superbike... made the decision between it and a 85 900 ninja. I think i would have been happy either way, though if a 900 were to follow me home one day, well, i guess i'd have to find room, right?

Winter project is to strip the bike down and paint her the '86 red/white/red color scheme. I just have a soft spot for that year (but mechanically the 89/90's were better bikes.... So best of both worlds!

Look forward to chattin with you guys!

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Hey guys!

I just read somewhere around here that it doesn't count unless you post a picture, so here's the FJ. This was on a overnight camping trip with my youngest. She loved the experience and the ride and has asked me a number of times since 'when can we go camping on your bike again, Daddy?"

You can't say no to that.


Jees! I hope this BBS resizes pictures automatically, or you guys are gonna hate me right from the start!
