Thumbs up Turned 99,000 last week-end

Had a nice WV ride, staying over Friday and Saturday. Arrived in my garage reading 99,000.2!

On the home stretch now. Not this week-end but maybe next. My bike will turn back to 00,000.0 miles as it doesn't have the 100K digit. I'm thinkin' that makes it re-incarnated, all brand new, zero miles.

Anybody need a zero miles CBR-1000F? Only ridden on Sundays! Let's talk.

Keeping the "Hap" in "Happy Holidays"!

wow 100,000

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving in a pretty well-preserved body,but rather to skid in broadside,thoroughly used up,totally worn out and loudly proclaiming,"WOW What a Ride!" Got it? Get it. Good.

This is the part where some Ford/Chevy/Dodge enthusiast (or pick your favorite manufacturer) says, "Hell, It's just gettin' broke in."

I wonder if the stock tire outside diameter was larger than the tires he uses? Really I think he only has 50k on the bike... he runs that in his shop all day on a stand.


WTG! Prooves proper maintenaince and no crashing gives bikes longevity!

Complicity? Simplexity? Its simply too complicated for me.

When I read the subject my first thought was:
"Dad, you don't look a day over 80,000"
