Getting Ready>>>>>>

Been a long brutal summer.

She's ready.

Thanks man I really like it out here--wasn't sure at first when I moved here 30 yrs ago but I have adapted.....

Being a So Cal transplant that was one thing I missed--the Mountain/Canyon roads but there are some nice ones out here too.





The Seadoo's are my Adrenaline Fix for the Brutal Summer.



Here is what the bike will look like FULLY LOADED.



And here is my first year on my 2002. I can't believe I rode 500 miles and up HWY 1 like that. And then there was the "incident" where I tipped over on a turnout overlooking the ocean and the bike was WFO on it's side!
Only damage done was the FRONT BRAKE LEVER COMPLETELY SNAPPED OFF!

It was getting dark and I had my g/f on the back and had 60 miles to go on HWY 1 with no front brake--one of my most hair raising rides ever! LoL



I can see a GoldWing or FJR on my bucket list...
