    Nice scoot!!! Have fun with it. If you haven't already done so, take the MSF Beginners Rider Course and if experienced the Experienced Riders Course. Both good. Also, Proficient Motorcycling by David Hough is a great reference for riding on the streets.

    I have a black harley Road Glide and cannot wait until the weather clears to get back on it. I also am a MSF rider coach in PA and it is nice to see new riders learn how to ride a motorcycle.

    Edit: Before I got married, I pointed to my Harley and my pickup and told my lady that I would ALWAYS have a motorcycle and a pickup. That was non-negotiable. She could decide to make her peace with it or decide not to marry me. So far, I'm still married and still have the hog and f-150.

    Tom - I am ancient too - so ......... Atlas or Dominator?

    I had a BSA Gold Star once - and always hankered after a ''Bonnie'' Then I started on rice burners and stayed that way!

    Actually i have my ''Bonnie" now - but she is my wife and wasn't made by Norton.

    Now you have a choice: Chrome or guns!I spent two years buying chrome, now it's guns again.

    My wife said I couldn't have a MC for years. I didn't worry about it. I had rode for 16 years without a problem (till I moved to Houston). But I'd been getting the bug for a few years now. Finally the other day I told her I was going to get two things, a motorcycle and an AR15. She just gave in and said OK. Thing is I ended up blowing the AR money on the bike and the accessories. I went over budget by a couple grand. OK three grand. OOPS! The good news is that in 6 years when I get the bike paid off I can get the AR. Wait a minute, was that good news?

    Bonnevilles were Triumphs. My first bike was a 200cc Triumph Tiger Cub.
    My Dad had every British bike you can name, AJS, Triumph, BSA... he even had an Ariel Arrow when they first came out. A cop stopped him and said he had to 'test ride' it, he just wanted to ride one as they were so futuristic.

    That's got to be my favorite piece of chrome. The least expensive chrome is homemade case bolt head covers

    Got my new jet kit and pipes (Road Burners) put on today. Sounds great! Had a guy walk up to me the other day and say "WOW! Nice Harley . Pic's of pipes tomorrow. I can keep the pipes quiet enough to get me through my neighborhood without a problem but at the end of the block I can wake everyone on the block up real quick. Hope the sheriff down the block don't mind (he's a day sleeper). So far no problems carrying concealed on this bike. The curvature of the seat makes it easy to set on the back of your shirt to keep your pistol concealed. The one eyed fatman approves this bike as a great concealed carry bike. I'm having fun.

    Glad you got pipes on ....... my Rineharts give me great pleasure

    The shirt tucked onto seat works well for me too - in fact the curve of my Mustang seat and its back rest hold things in real nice even when highway speeds.

    You'll have biking weather before I do - that's a given!

    Here's my ride - VTX 1300 - now with bigger and better bags.

    And for good measure - my son's Intruder 1400 - which he reworked extensively - it is a 12 year old bike!!
