That's awesome Tom - thanks for sharing. The mountain is beautiful. Glad to see you got to enjoy the sun today!

I'm sorry, but I actually ride a Super Tenere now... ;)

I like the the Japanese Sportster.To misconstrue an old quote.
"Mr Versys you are not an FJR"
For my purpose it's a fun, agile little ride. :D

Great pics Tom, good morale booster and anticipation builder, been trying to get rid of a bad chest cold lately and the photos are good tonic.

Met Tom and his new scooter yesterday. They both looked good. We might have to divorce him from the fraternity ... only one farkle so far. He changed the front sprocket to a 16 tooth and that's it.

Always good to see you Tom!
