    I'm back.

    Though we've had some rough winter weather here thus far in 2015, I remain optimistic for an early spring. Of all years, I want spring to arrive sooner this year than any other has, since I have been fortunate enough to have been able to purchase my first brand new motorcycle. I cannot wait to hit the beautiful Upstate NY roads with 103 cubic inches of pure American Muscle between my legs..

    Here are a few spring "inspirational" photos for your viewing pleasure...

    The silver paint is metallic, and shows up and looks far better outdoors than these indoors ones taken with my Samsung Galaxy S5 show. The kinda funny looking piece on the seat will be removed. It was made to move a shorter rider 1.5" closer to the handle bars and foot controls. The bike also has a 2-way adjustable handle bar, making it suitable for riders of all sizes. Of course, I'll do a bunch of my own "customizing" to it, as I've already purchased several accessories...

    I still love (and kept) my 2004 Sportster 1200 Custom. It was my first Harley, and I've made it my own true Custom, having changed many things from stock. It is a very quick/torquey/good handling bike, and is a blast to carve canyons on. It is equally comfortable for longer rides (believe it or not), as I've ridden her as many as 600 miles in a single day, with no soreness afterward. She's my little hot rod, and I've named her "Wendy", inspired by the girl in the Springsteen classic "Born To Run", 'cause baby my Sporty was indeed Born To Run...

    Here is what it looked like when I bought it in March of 2012:

    Enjoy, Rick, nice bike! There's something about buying toys brand new that attaches them to you that much more.

    My workbench for replacing the tweeter in my left Magico S5. Turns out, the cross-over was bad. :)

    LOL, and thanks!!

    The music is still going strong, but I just finished the Jim Beam. That's OK, I haven't eaten much today (or should I say yesterday?!?!), so I must grab a bite to eat. I'll be playing one more on the main rig, then likely one more in the loft before crashing for the night.

    Good to "see" you!!

    I am with you brother, I have a strong fondness for the afro!! :)B)

    Anyone remember this girl? Her name is Hayley Marie Norman, she was one of the original models on Deal Or No Deal (and my favorite). She was also in the hilarious love scene in the trailer with Will Smith in his "superhero" movie (I cannot remember the name right now)...

    H9: If you don't trust what you are hearing, then maybe you need to be less invested in a hobby which all the pleasure comes from listening to music.
