Hawaii to Maine. I could not imagine that at all.

Love the Maine coastline. My second favorite state to tour.

You should come and show off your bikes at Barber Motorsports Vintage Festival next year.

Hawaii to Maine? Man, that qualifies as a rather dramatic climate change!

Where are you located? We're in Rockwood up on Moosehead Lake. Spectacular part of the state though a bit remote.

I was down that way two weeks ago. Had my left hip replaced at Maine Medical Center on Oct 2nd and am now in the recovery stage. It's all part of growing old apparently. If all goes well, I'll be fit to ride come spring and that's a very good thing.

brought her home today, it wasn't mentioned in the ad but the bike also came with heated grips, though I do need to relocate the switch for them, it's located low on the fairing and I can't get to it while I'm riding, stupid location really.

anyhow here she is on the trailer ready to head home. sadly I couldn't find anyone to give me a ride down to the dealership so I could ride her home so I was forced to rent a trailer.
