Haha, I will have to dig out my  solo seat. Install my snow mobile suit and ride to the neighborhood coffee shop. Might get a whole 5 km on her but at least it will be a ride!!

It is always a miracle when I throw off that bike cover and stand back in amazement in the spring.

Ah, spring in Texas.  70 degrees, partly cloudy.  Wonderful 200 mile ride today.  Neener neener.  Sorry, could't resist.  :evil:

I'm not a Loop guy, but that's a gorgeous bike.

Very nice indeed, but I fear the seat maybe a tad uncomfortable...  :laugh:

Here is a picture for all the hard seat boys!! This was taken just before we left for the national rally in John Day in 2016. The bike won best loop in the show and shine against some beautiful loops from Canada and the USA. The seat has gel inserts and I put on the arm rests for Linda for the trip because of poor circulation, itís  comfortable and is fun to ride. Worst feature is every time you stop for gas a crowd gathers and you have to tell them what it is etc....
