I heard they are great beginners bikes (her), and should be fun to wheelie around the country roads (me).
Won't get a chance to really find out till spring though....snowing today... :(

We were supposed to go and look at one of those this weekend but ran out of time and now it's snowing here too, so it may have to wait. May look at a fully faired one in the spring

We got the 2016 Duke because the newer 2017 has styling even more radical...and they were cutting deals to get the older versions out the door. Not sure what has changed on the RC390 for 2017 they were sold out...? Your RZ will still be faster

I got some recognition for keeping some strokers alive, in my favorite magazine.
Words are a bit botched up as the original story was more than they had room for.
But the pic came out good :mrgreen:

Decided to unrestrict the VJ23....
Sugaya.... no one does it better for RGV's
Not a financially smart thing to do for sure, but and extra 20 plus HP is hard to put a price on sometimes :mrgreen:
Still need the R2 CDI at some point.... considerably more rare than the bike itself is, sad to say. :cry:
Almost done collecting parts though, and will be tearing into it very soon. Needs to be ready by early May....I'm hoping

Finally sold the bachelor pad, and moved into a real house.....so the bikes had to have a new place too.
Slowly getting the strokers and parts and everything else settled in.

Do you paint bikes for people?

I may be looking at a paint job on my spare set of Buffalo parts along with a small fly screen.

Thanks!

I have painted a few Harleys in the past. But after the owners had dropped them and scratched them up time and again, expecting me to just touch it up....I figured it's not worth the trouble.
But anything is possible. I kinda do things at a pretty slow pace when I'm doing things on my own time.....it could take a while depending on condition of metal (dents/rust/cracks) and how much paint is still on the parts... The less I have to do, the easier it is to consider.

This is what I have been painting at my day job for over 15 years now....So it takes a bit of effort to try and paint after work. :lol:
