    Very nice, my final weekend in college I found a Fender Silverface Twin Reverb, it was beat to hell but new Tolex, grille cloth, and a capacitor job it screams!
    Nice find!

    I thought so too! My mind said, "if you sold the 105.012 and then parked it at Tom's house for a few days until you determine the best way to tell the woman unit." Those are dark roads to be on :whipped:

    Birth year wine...I've read though that it's slightly overmatured and that I should drink it ASAP. When my 27th birthday comes around probably :)

    Its easier with motorcycles, especially back in the pre plastic bodywork days when they were mostly black and chrome metal.
    I added one to the row in the garage a few years ago and she took so long to noticed it that I actually didn't know which one she was asking about when she said "when did you get that one?"..... and by then it was too late to give me shit for it!

    Hey! Birth year buddies! I've begun the journey of drinking all the First Growths from '89. The Haut-Brion will be the last on the list. $$$$$$$

    I've tried with "donor"cycles as she calls them, I miss the Thruxton I sold a few years back. Your is a fine bike, I constantly pine for a nice cafe bike. But watches are more of an "approved" item.

    I've learned where to take the victory and move on!

    The BMW was lovely but I was in college and a muffler for it cost as much as many textbooks so it had to go. Replaced it with a 53 Triumph TRW with only 3900 miles on it! Got married on that one!

    yup, same girl as the wedding shot too.... she turned out to be cheaper to keep than the BMW and far more reliable than either bike so I sold them on and kept her.

    yesterday was our 28th anniversary!

    Well, no new cars for me right now, but a Mobius action cam to act as my rear car cam and my scooter cam (probably on the side of my helmet).

    You know, I bought one of those Mobius cam's a year ago to test out, and its been sitting in a box ever since, thanks for reminding me, I need a front looking cam in my new truck! I was thinking of buying several more if the first one checked out.
