  1. She's a beauty! Can't wait to go on our first ride of the year!
    Will you still allow Yamaha riders to tag along? :)

  2. Very nice and congrats with the purchase, and slightly jealous my friend.... Actually I have been looking about for another bike myself Bryan, is very much getting the bug again after the chevy restoration and I have been looking at the older Yamaha FJ1200's or another older BMW both of which I have had previously, or something new to me that has caught my eye lately is an older type Goldwing, yes the comfort factor is high on the list of must haves, not so much the speed and knee scrapping through the twisty corners.... Wait and see, so ride safe and stay upright!! Cheers

  3. What a beauty, good for you! So will "your" monicker be Bad Boy Bryan?
    Come on summer......
