Garth is still kickin'

HOwdy Garth, long time no see,,,,since you moved up north. Glad you are back to two wheels after a long run with an xs1100 and without. Also picked up a Kawi,,,,99' Nomad 1500, to the stable of 82 Xj, and 81 Venture. There is a rally next weekend in Colorado with a lot of your ol xs buddies,,,,,keep checking in and holler if you get back down to Sun DIego,,,,,,Mike S.

Cool

Nice bike, Garth!

Photosocket still works for me because I bought their fairly reasonable membership package a month or two before they went crazy. That'll end this year in December, there's no way I'm paying the fees after that.

OneDrive is pretty good for me at the moment, I have the yearly Office 365 subscription and that gets a free terabyte of storage.

I tell you what. That cop seat is way more comfy than any xs seat I've had and the bike is extremely well balanced feels much lighter than an xs even in full dress
