Sometimes, to keep coool, a motor is needed to keep up with the fast boys.
this is almost like cheating...rwbadley

Nice bike too! Honda?

Say what's the deal with the collared shirt too? Man you certainly aren't a slave to fashion :O)
You're right about that. Actually...rwbadley

when it's warm this is exactly how I'm dressed riding the bicycle. I like the sun protection the high collar and long sleeves offer. The high socks, ditto. The shirt is really comfy, its a loose weave poly/cotton blend. It doesn't wick too well, but the air flow and gentle flapping of the material keep things ...coool. ;-)
You're a piece of work :O)Live Steam

Loved to see the look on the faces of your local roadie snobs when you show up for the Saturday morning hammer fest dressed like that :O)

Hey is that a Honda or not? It's been killing me. I didn't figure you for a rice burner fan. I thought maybe a Triumph, but not a Jap bike.
Uh oh, Steam. VERY racist and non-PC language! nmOldEdScott

1970 Honda cb750. I've had alot of bikes, including Triumph, this one I built and have kept since 1982. It's a hoot to ride, and in the age of the 'me too Harley', at least it's unique.
I have to agree there RW :O)Live Steam

Nice bike. I remember my friends brother buying a CB500? when I was a kid. Is that an after market tank? You're right about the Harley wannabees! Hey get some real socks will ya' :O)
