Green V1k

Saw a 2015, Green V1k riding 2up in Santiago Canyon in SoCal about 230pm today. Anybody, Bueller, Bueller!

Been thinking about riding in that area one day during the week. The green ones are a 2016. I test rode one of the ugly booger green ones and bought the beautiful Titanium one

Good ride would be head through the canyon to live oak to Antonio Pkwy to the Ortega Hwy to 15 and go out to Floís airport diner. I just picked up a 2018 Indian Springfield Dark Horse with stage one exhaust upgrade. Dude, what a machine, itís like a road sofa.

Thats the way we use to go out to Ortega. Never heard of Flo's Diner will have to check that out... Damn another bike. My girl doesn't understand the concept of having more than 1 bike.

I test drove the Indian Vintage, and was impressed with everything except the price.

Yeah, I hear you. Being as tall as I am this bike is super comfortable and I can anticipate some long, multi day trips.

Splain it like this: one pan don't make a kitchen.

Naw, don't say that. Might give her the prickly heat these days.

Bout this: Bikes are like horses. You got your plow horse, your race horse, your saddle horse, your pack horse, your quarter horse, all the way to the pet pony draws the little girl's toy cart. You sure don't try and race your plow horse. That makes no sense at all.

Me, I want to go camping, I fire up the KLR. I want to take my sweetheart to a romantic B&B, I don't want her on back of that muddy wreck ... I gotta fire up the big beemer luxo barge so she can bring all her half ton of necessaries. Commuted to work this morning on my Guzzi Jackal. If I want to go speed styling, I'll wax up the Indian Scout. None of these are interchangeable. Different bikes for different purposes.

Add them all up, they still don't cost what I have in her car.

Ask her about how many pair of shoes. "You can only where one pair at a time" "Each pair is for a different purpose" "Each Bike has different purpose." and then the fight starts and you sleep on the couch for a week or so.
