I've got braggin' rights !

Yep, Me and "Baby" just crossed a new milestone.....
I've had Baby for Maaaaany years now and just recently I got
10,000 miles on her!....... That's 10 not 100.
......And Baby will be 30 soon......100% stock,
1986 and now has just over 10,000 miles.....

Congratulations Baby......with ZERO repairs

(correction, I put 2 new turn signals on)

So do you just turn around once you get to the end of the driveway?

Pavement ?

.......Are these things supposed to actually go out on pavement.....I thought this was a dirt bike.
If it had a windshield, I guess it could go out of my driveway....

I run a VTX 1300 on pavement....but the 750 is more fun!

that comes out to about 333.33 miles per year.

I do that at one outing sometimes.....lol

But to be honest.....30 years and no repairs on a stock bike is a good thing.....not even dry rotted parts like tires and seals?
that alone is impressive.

I recently put on new tires and battery.....does that count?
I'd call that maintenance not repairs...

Hey Goof....I don't need one for the driveway......I was thinking of getting out on the pavement, maybe even 2 or 5 miles.....you know, a long way.

Do these fit good (read easy install)? I'm thinking the narrower one fit the profile of the bike. But the plexis might protect your hands.
