As the title states, no problems, no questions. It’s hot and sticky in Philly, it’s a long holiday weekend and the attached pic shows what I’m doing. I figured if anyone gets it, it’s folks on here

Just made my new magna mine. Day before yesterday hanging with my friend Drifter and his daughter Michelle. Pillion fell off so Michelle sat her tiny little ass right on the fender after they strapped the pad to the sissy barClick image for larger version

I'll be taking mine out tomorrow in the Florida heat.

Man, Doc, I love your Honda. That thing looks so cool stripped down, and I bet it goes like a bat outta hell, too. Is that the Magna 750?

Monsoon season starts here about anytime now, which means the humidity goes up to about 70%, there will be huge dust storms in the evening almost every day for the next 3 months. The only time I ride now is from about 4:00 am to 5:00 am, after that it jets too hot. I'm working on bikes (I have six) inside the house with the A/C on. Hope to get the Vulcan ready to ride by the time summer is over.

I had one of those 4 pipe Magnas (1987 700) back in the late '80s. It didn't feel any faster than the Vulcan 750, but I loved that street rod look. I had to sell it when I got married. The first thing I did after my divorce, after 11 years of hell, was get another bike. At least I have 2 wonderful kids.

Should be almost a full second faster in the quarter than a Vulcan

Haha maybe, I keep all my goods in there. As far as the heat it’s supposed to be in the 90’s most of the next week or so. As long as I’m not in bumper to bumper traffic I’ll be alright. I can afford to sweat off a few lbs!

Somewhere in a pile of 65,000 images I have across a terrabyte disk are a few of my bikes with that trunk on it. My CFMOTO V5 looked really good with it. I prefer bags on my VN.

You can sorta see the trunk here in this old video of mine of my CFMOTO V5
