Purdy GW. I'm really liking the new GW ... or as some call it, the ST1800.

I only went back in 2011 because some coworkers had never been. It's over-rated IMHO ... too much internet hype. There are several better roads if you like the twisties where the speed limit is not 35 MPH. Look up RT16 between between Marion and Tazewell, VA.
I agree . We drove the northern part of the Pacific coast highway . Was really an experience . Guy noticed my "I road the tail of the dragon" patch and said he always wanted to do it. Told him the road your on now makes the tail look like a kiddy trail. Not many places you can see face to face the guy behind you on the hairpins like there

Did the tail in both 15 and again in 17. First time on my road glide pulling a trailer second on my wing love this bike . The flat six is silky smooth with gobs of torque . Hardly have to shift i can slowto 20 mph and it will just take off still in 5th gear dont do it often but it never lugs my Harley would be bogging and shaking in third at that speed View attachment 838588 View attachment 838589 View attachment 838590
I have had 4 Honda flat 6's (still own an 1800 and a 1600) and a pile of big V twins. The Six has more grunt than anything else. Shifting is an option most of the time, not a necessity.

Well the Segway 9bot has a top speed of 19 mph. When riding it I found a yard sale. Brought home a slightly larger bike. The Segway is a hoot.

Here’s a real Husqvarna fresh out of the barn. Had to sell she needed to be raced again. In the barn for decades. The right pic is one of three ‘83/250’s I had. I have eight huskys left in basket cases, 500 cc, 430 cc, 390 cc, 420 cc, 250 cc. CR ‘s, wr’s & or ‘s trannys. No ride like riding a husky bike true swedish quality. I had 27 huskys with 15 of them restored. Sold them off and have eight left.

O.K. This is the smallest bike I have ever owned. Top speed, 18 mph. But it is still fun to ride and I can pick it up with one hand and throw it in the truck. Without it I would have not found my V Star. I love being on 2 wheels.
