Default Old Bike, Older Owner

Got an older Vic and rebuilt her to suit me. As fun as working on her was, riding her is better. Got a couple more long rides comin up for the year before the onset of winter. Lookin forward to readin bout other Vics.

Bike is great! Did a couple of long rides towards the end of the season. Waited a little too late though as the last one was entirely in leather, raingear and anything else I could put on. Coffee does thaw out fingers nicely.

Don't have a garage so bike is on tender in a rental storage unit. Waiting for March so I can do my routine maintenace without freezing my ass off. At my age, laying on cold concrete takes about 2 days to get over the soreness.

Gonna change plugs, brake pads, clean throttle body, adjust the clutch, install a tail light controller (to make the yellows turn red and act like brake lights and finally, mock up and finish custom light bar and send for chrome or powder coat. Gonna have a few weekends of beer drinking, I mean working on the bike!!!

Not really. Freedom motor, ugraded tranny and charging system, no speedo bugs. Pretty much all the early models quirks worked out in 03. Handling over 85 was a little finicky, but adjusted the rear shock and changed to dyna beads. I'm good into triple digits now.
