Crashed my 07 blade, sold my mint SP2 (gutted).
Now got an 03 SV1000S - in nice nick, but not too posh, 'case I drop it whilst getting back into things :?
Hope to be back properly by spring - need to mod / swap control clusters over. Then plenty of practice 8)

Been reading your posts in here the last year or 2 so it is extra nice to see the article about you. Got my Harley adapted and running in May but no big time article yet. Great pictures of your family. I would ask if Angie is single shes kinda cute but her dad scares me. Keep on, you will be riding soon, you got any questions about getting a bike going again just ask.

Good to hear you're riding again! Mine will be ready for Xmas...That's a 107" Ultima engine! :shock: Can't wait to take her for a ride! I lucked out on the article. My builder, Marcus has been a friend for 25 years & Rodent was in Daytona doing an article on his shop. He found out about my build & happened to be passing by this way a week later so he stopped in...Instant "Part 2". Part three will be in March when he passes through again...He wants pics of me actually riding the beast! :D

Yeah I was wondering about that motor, long stroke will sound nice and look very classy going down the road. Might take a little practice but judging from those pics the bike has a low center of gravity and you are strong. We do attract attention expect people to check you and the bike out often. Its nice to see someone adapt and over come to do something they love again. Be sure and post photos

Did a run this summer with a lady passenger on the bike and me driving from the hack. Going thru town she would hold a book out in front of her like she was reading it sitting there on the bike by herself it would freak people the f out!

Hope you have some great rides this coming year. The rain has stopped here for a day so as soon as the sun comes out and warms things up I am going for a ride
