Re: Show Me your motorcycle photos...

Okay, why not, I'll give this a try.

Riding out and down FR#25 behind Mt. St Helens on my 97 VFR 750. What more is there to say, other than probably the best all a round motorcycle there is. thou those super motards are starting to catch my eye, but really with it's V4 power I can ride like a full out sport or tour all day long. Besides it's Red! what other color is there.

And if thats not enough, it's a blast to ride and has a sound like no other.

Coming out of Carson Wa. to this spectactular view.

Heck call it an 81 1/2 that way at most your only 6 mo. off.

Great looking bike.
Lets see, if I figured this right, the bike only had about 15,000 on it when you purchased it? Is that original mileage? If it is, wow.

Would you care to rate your motorcycle? (scale of 1-10)

Don, thanks for the response, if you have more pics you would like to share, we would love to see them.

p.s. I didn't even ask about the mirrors
p.p.s. I just took a second look at your pics, bike looks like new!
Yeah, that's it, and 81 ½, I've been looking for something to call it.

I'll go ahead and rate it at an 8/10, easily maintained, no problems with it. Is there really a 10 out there for me?

15,471.9 in the previous owner's pictures to me when I was considering buying it.

I'm not sure if I have any more pictures other than those, there might be some more in a previous thread about my first ride.
100 years from now, it won't matter what kind of car I drove, house I owned, or things I have......but what will matter are the values I pass down to my kids and grandchildren.My Blog

2004 Harley Davidson XL 883

This is my 04 Sportster XL 883 with 16K . Got this bike in July of 04. My first Harley and I must say I love this bike. Why? It's simple and pure. No fancy engine,No double overhead cams, A single carb air cooled V-Twin, No Brembro brakes, Single discs, No heated grips, No electric windshield, No driveshaft but a belt drive I dont have to touch. This bike vibrates at bit, burps through the carb once and awhile, and I love it ! I added the fairing, custom seat, Progressive rear shocks, changed the exhaust, re-jetted the carb and changed the Air Cleaner. Not one issue at all in 16,000 miles. Not a Rocket by no means but a low end Torque machine and will reach triple digits with ease.
I would take this bike anyplace, last year did a 3 day 1300 mile trip to the california coast and loved it.

This picure was taken last year at Hoover dam..

Since then I added a diff Air cleaner from Arlen Ness

This is me, September of '04, riding in the Redwoods. This is the back side of Jed Smith, along Howland Hill Rd, approaching Stout Grove.

Once again, this is the Redwoods. Mill Creek Campground. June this year.

I would rate my bike at about a 7. It has been a great first bike for me; I've taken it on several 1200-1500 mile trips, slabs and blue highways, and its done everything I've asked it to. Maintainence is relatively simple. I plan on running the mileage up on it pretty high before I go on to my next bike.

Nice bike, nice photos.
Great post, I don't have any questions, cause you covered it all.

The covered bridge shot reminds me of bridges we have in New England.
I particularly like the redwoods shot (Sept. 04), with the fern's, redwood's, small curving road, contrasting sun/shade background. I don't know what the temperature was but the photo gives the impression that the redwoods are providing cool relief from the sun.

If you have more motorcycle photos you are willing to share, keep em coming, I would like to see them and I'm sure others would too.

More photos please.

Re: Show Me your motorcycle photos...

I'll play along...

All shots were taken with a Nikon CoolPix 8700 here in Texas.

First photo was taken on FM 1489 just north of the tiny town of Simonton.

Second shot was taken on FM 1093 a few miles west of Fulshear.

Third shot was taken in Fayetteville. The BMW with sidecar is a 1966 model year - 40 years older than my 2006 Kawasaki 650R.

Last shot is right off FM 1489 and down a beautiful tree lined lane.
