It snows in New Jersey :tongue:

I want to end up in a place where it never snows hardly ever snows, but no nasty bugs or poisonous snakes, or man eating reptiles, near to an ocean but without the hurricanes or tidal waves to contend with, the natives are friendly and I don't need to hide behind a gated and guarded fortress with the locals calling for death to the infidel!  :violent1:

If such a place exists please let me know, I will pack up my bikes and tools and plan my escape.

New Zealand!!!

New Zealand!!!

You certainly have some of the best scenery in the world, it's a damn far ways away though but new Zealand sure checks a lot of boxes for me, Commonwealth, English speaking, respected and stable progressive government, 1st class health care, familiar rule of law, low crime etc.... You drive on the wrong side of the road but when on 2 wheels that shouldn't be too hard to get used to.I have heard from several of your countrymen that the temperament of the Kiwi is very similar to the Canuck, we both start off most conversations apologizing for something, and neither of us appreciate being confused with our neighbours. Scots, Kiwi's and Canucks are all cut from the same cloth.

First ride today, in the 30s but dry. Just ran it up and down the street a few times then let it cool down. Then took it out on the main street and got it up to 4th. Tomorrow clear and in the 40s, I should be able to get 50 or so miles on it...

Borrowed the tank from my 74

I've put the finishing touches on the bike and now have clocked about 70 miles on it. It's ready for its new owner and I and moving on to my next project. I've updated the link to my pics..

I was able to visit Joe at his shop earlier this year and had a good chance to look at some of his work.  Most restorations look good in photos, you really need to look close to accurately judge the quality of work.  Joe's attention to detail is great, all the correct hardware and proper finish as per OEM.  His attention to detail is what makes a good restoration a GREAT one.  Kudo's to Joe !!!!  He should have one very happy customer.

Thanks Dave, that means a lot to me. One last picture and this thread can fade away...
