    Default My new Baby!

    Haven't ridden in 30 years, but decided to get back in the saddle.

    2005 Yamaha Road Star 1700cc

    I know, I know, it's not a Harley...........

    Sweet ride OVUS...Harley is over-rated.

    live in Milwaukee and still would rather have a Jap bike over a Harley. It will start and not leak unlike a Harley.

    Nice ride.

    The only thing on 2 wheels I can afford is my bicycle.

    Uh oh..... guess I shouldn't have shared my third-hand $4500 mid-life crisis that my wife bought me by selling blood plasma and her glass eye...... Sorry if I offended you. I'll throw it off a cliff when I get back to Atlanta tomorrow.

    I'm not worthy.....

    bah! If you earned it and can afford it, you deserve it.

    Besides, anyone that knows bikes, already knew how much you paid for it.
    Almost anyone could afford it. Give up sodas and nuke-em sammiches for a month and there is your 25-35 buck payment.

    The reality is us young pups with kids can't "afford it", cus our wives picture themsleves as widows raising children on their own. I sold mine the year my girl was born...under much protest I assure you.

    Enjoy it.

    Thought I would throw up a picture of my new (old) baby too.

    1998 Ford Mustang Cobra (Or Cop Magnet)

    I prefer to stay on 4 wheels and have a little sheet metal over my head, just in case you end up bottom-up!

    My wife and I had one of them, that is until we had kids.
