Red river Gorge

Gathering up my day trip stuff for ride to the Gorge and back today. I am taking the go pro video camera with me and I hope to remember to shoot some video today,if I remember how to work that thing .

Hopefully I will have some good video, so a bunch of you can take a ride with me and the OMRC(Old mans Riding club), Martin Co. KY Chapter. Expect geezers and Geezer Glides and not a lot of fast stuff in the twisties. One of the Guys is 80 YO and rides an 1100 Shadow pretty well.

One of the men in our little group said he hoped he could ride like that when he was 80. I told him I just wanted to be above ground at 80 !!

Behave yourselves today and I hope your Saturday is going to be a good one too.

unfortunately, some idiot didn't buy the right type of battery for the video camera I borrowed, so I don't get to visually rub it in. On the plus side I did over 250 miles on mostly back roads and I am back home,tired but still in one piece.

Oh my gosh, 250 mi. of back roads would make me feel at least 80 yo., if I was still in one piece. ... I would have liked to rode it anyway though...lol...

I was the young one in the Group OD, the oldest WAS 80 and probably the one who would keep up the pace the best, he rode a Honda Shadow 1100. You would have fit right in with us,lol.

I actually would like to have had you with us ,a lot of the time I felt like I was in a parade. I left the group about 6 and for another hour in on the way home I actually put the beast over the road. I would say at the rate they were going that it was dark-thirty before they made it back.

Good bunch of men but our leader was lost twice and we had to backtrack. It's all in a days riding I suppose

I know how you feel, I usually ride drag in our group, although they usually ride maybe a bit over 150 mi. ...
Oh, I think I'm going to look at the 86 XLH 1100 Liberty when this threatening weather passes... Anything I should look, or look out for...???

Just that it starts and runs right,I think in 86 they still had carbs on 'em. it looks pretty good in the pics. I am not sure but almost that the 1100's had a completely different frame than yours too . I am thinking it will handle and ride a lot differently than what you have now. Regardless of what people think HD has come a long way since 86. You are buying it for a back up any way, I can't say as I blame you. When they figure yours out it will be your daily rider anyway.
