Thanks Tony. Sure is nice to have some fairings again after riding naked for the last two years. It was windy and wet this morning on the ride in. I would have been soaked on the DR. Nary a drop today.

I know it's not truck related and if this thread is not appropriate then nuke it or let it die.

I'll start:

Currently riding a 1994 Suzuki DR650. Daily rider. Commuter. Trail bike. I've nicknamed her the "Goat". She pulls like a tractor. Great city bike. Nimble, good suspension travel (for hoping curbs and medians ). Currently (who am I kidding) always, looking for new bikes. Got my eyes on a zg1000 for a good two-up sport tourer for the wife and I. Would really like to have a 02 Triumph Trophy 1200 with low miles in good shape. Hard to find.

Here's the Goat:

I bought a new DR650 about the same year (maybe a '92) as yours in Rockingham. It was a pain to start at first but got used to it. I see yours doesn't have a kick lever. Was it ele. start when you bought it?
I sold it to a fella who couldn't kick it hard enough to get it started. He was a small guy. I had to start it for him to prove it ran. He bought it anyway and said he would learn to kick start it when he got it home.

Cool to see some more bikes.

That big Boulevard is sweet.

Mine was an 1994 SE model that came factory with the magic button. It had a spot for the kick and at times wish it had one. The pre-96 versions were good bikes but didn't have near the aftermarket support as the post 96 models.

Looking to pick up a low priced DR350 to replace the 650.

You had to use the decomp. lever and get it to TDC before you put every ounce of a$$ into the kick then it was no gaurantee it would start.
Once it stalled on me in Miami, FL after the light changed. I was holding up traffic and they started blowing their horns. I was nervous going thru the routine frantically over and over until it started and when It did I nailed it and wheelied for about 20 yds. and put it back down. Little did I know that there a cop in line behind me and he was'nt happy from me holding up traffic and I was pulled for the wreckless driving. He let me off with a warning and when I got back to NC I put it up for sale. It was a great bike but I was done with the kicking.

Nice thread. Glad to see so many members out there on two wheels. I got a 1978 GL1000 Goldwing. 169,280 miles so far. Just took of the stock rusted through ehaust system and fabed up a set of triumph bonniville mufflers on it (They were free from a friend). Stock pipes $700 ,mine Freebie. Lets all get together and have a BBQ or pig pickin. I been modifying this thing for years. Custom tail lights, harley police seat, Work on it as time and money allow.

I bought a 89 Harley Electra Glide Ultra Classic. We rode it for a year and have been restoring it for two years. Around $15.000.00 later it is a nice bike. I will post pic later. Great forum

Re: 78 GL

Nice ride. Looks well taken care of. That's a good lump to take that many miles. Probably got a lot more miles left in her. Im down for a lunch or ncfte bike gathering of some such.

Re: Ultra Classic

Let's see those pics. Bet it's sweet.

That is a great idea. An N.C. Chapter get together. Find a place that everyone can get to and put some faces to the names. How many other members would be interested? The oldwing is always up for a crossing of our Great State. I am close to Raleigh in Johnston County. Smithfield to be exact. All we need is some intrest in the idea and a time to do it.
