    How true. Especially with women.

    The CX-500 and Silverwings ran down the road at 5500 RPM and so seemed 'buzzy' to me. I really thought that the GL-500 or CX-500 was, finally, going to be the Final, End-All, Perfect Bike.

    But they weren't. The 650 turbo was a rocket too. But the Bonneville is just better in so very many ways.

    Plus; Hondas Hate Me. I have to tell you the CB-750 Saga. Traded it straight across for a GS-850GL. Which I had gotten in trade for a trailer load of GL-1000 parts.
    I have had (older) Triumph, BMW and a Ducati. If you live to work on things these were built for you. I had a GL1200, 1500 & a 1800 NEVER had a real problem with them. It is just a different bike. I like your taste in bikes for around town! But I wouldn't want to try an IB on one.

    I did an Iron Butt Run on a Kawasaki KZ-440

    It was a 1981. I'd have to think about an exact date but the IB Run was within the last ten years I would say. I wouldn't mind doing another one.

    And WTH? Anybody could do an IB one on a big Wing. What sense does that make? It's doesn't mean anything. Nothing is reaffirmed. Nothing is glorified.

    I'd like to do the next one on maybe a 175 or a 250. But I already have 400's. Oh wait! I have a CL-175 too. <g> I better get those new bars on it one of these days.

    Here's my bike, XR 650L slightly modified. New, gas tank, exhaust, handelbars, rear fender and light, tires, gearing, some misc bolt ons. All in all it has bucked me off the back several times and got thrown a few times, hit the dirt once or twice and got stuck in a deep ravein and almost went into adreanal crisis getting out. Over all , fun as hell.

    Next spring I will go from 2 machines, to 4 machines. Got my eye on a pair Kawi KLX250S for me and the Mrs. Then I want to get some more vintage machines, a CBX comes to mind. The wife wants her '75 CB550 back.
