Unmistakable - 2 Sightings!!

I was on the way home from work yesterday (2-Nov) traveling 78 West toward Clinton NJ at 4 p.m. on the dot and saw what was unmistakably a VN750. You clearly had a few layers on under your big ol' leather jacket, as well you should have. You had 2 big ol' leather saddle bags and your tank was blue and grey. I even tried to memorize your license plate, it's something like P650S or close to it. Where ya at!?!?

Also just now, this morning (3-Nov) around 7:20, I had just gotten off 78 East at exit 29 and was on the ramp to 202/206. I saw a bike with it's flashers on pulled over to the side of the road. You were about a hundred yards behind a tractor trailer who also had his flashers on. I assumed you were helpin' out (or taking a leak, one or the other). I was moving pretty good but those air boxes are hard to miss. C'mon now with details like that, it's gotta be somebody here!!! Again, where ya at!?!?

Nobody? Really? How is it we have 9000 members and everytime there's a sighting, it's never anyone here? Just once I'd love someone to post that they saw a VN750 and have someone else reply, "IT WAS MEEEEEEEEE!!!" LOL!!!

Mike, we have 9,000 members, but perhaps only several dozen to a hundred or two of us regularly post a message here. There may be a few hundred more lurkers, stopping in to read and glean the knowledge available. (And that`s ok too guys and gals, if that`s what you want to do.)

Just saying very few of the 9,000 registered members are active and reading this. Their loss.

^ Fair enough. The thinking there was that if he wasn't just passin' through, there'd be a ridin' buddy.

LOL!!!! She'd prolly be at my place breaking sh!t. She broke 2 crystal wine glasses in one night the other night, 2!! I go, "Hey Carr, do you think you could take the other 4 outside before you break um...seriously?" She goes, "I know right, and I really like them too." I go, "You obviously hate them, you keep spikin' them in the kitchen." She goes, "sheee ut it." LOL!!!

She sounds like my sister. She could break an anvil SERIOUSLY! I told her that she needs to go to paper plates and bowls where every time she does her dishes she breaks some and if she is here visiting and suggest doing the dishes I'm like......"Um no that ok!" "It'll give me something to do later." lol
