The winds of change are blowing...
Things were so quiet on the WW forums lately (except for that excellent desktop Mrs. Angel Eyes) that I decided to mix things up!
All the credit, kudos and karma (if I was able to give it) to Queeg for helping me out. As my amazingly cool brother in the Army would say: Queeg, you are The HEAT!!! :thumbsup: :bows:

I see that Dragon's schitzophernia is contagious! But it's true that your avatar looks better. I'm just sad that your don't like the motor bikes anymore ! lol (I know that you are likely on this subject then I tease you a little! Sorry!)
Greets and welcome to FjtomSteelKnightPreacherTom! hehe
@Hewster - Why thank you pardner! Yeah, SteelKnight was so, so, last decade. @Bigus - Ah, but don't you see? I am the Pale FJ1200 Rider...my Yamaha is pearl white and grey... If you haven't seen that movie (Pale Rider) it's one to watch for sure. Sure it's like Shane, but it's got Clint, so it has to be better! Oh, and you can tease me all you want about *riding* bikes, it was the knocking down part (in that other thread) that got me started! :D
I post to get attention

Clever how you synthesized your 2 wheel passion and the Wild West theme. I wasn't able to do the same. My love of the bottle and the game were far easier to accomodate. Stinkin Gringo had a FJ1200 but hes got a Hayabusa now. I was the proud owne of a V65 Sabre and a FZ600 but traded em on a DR350 to cut my commute by 75% when I lived in the California high desert and could get to work cross country. I have seen you allude to the RZ350 before. and must say they are a personal favorite of mine. I restored one for a bud in Hawaii and enjoyed its nimble use for a few months. I got to ride a Gamma 500 in Okinawa and if your a RZ fan then that would give you permagrin. Anyways keep the shiny side up and I'll see you out west.

OK Preacher! I'll tease you more often in the future! :naughty: Thanx for movie's advice, I haven't seen it yet. Any movie with Clint deserve to be seen, Western or not. :nodding:
BTW Shotglass, that is a nice avatar - saw the other thread and all.

Thanks - I seem to be able to weave my love of riding into almost all else I do - it's part of the disease.:uhoh:

You, you...augh! A GAMMA! I will go on to rant about the Gamma in a PM (since this is to be the WW and all) but shoot man, that's incredible. I knew several guys in Orlando that had hopped up Gammas but they never let me ride them. :cry: Oh, and to everyone - I do think my avatar worked out well (especially with some pixel nudging and conversion to .png from Queeg) but I certainly did not come up with the style.

Its nice to see we have a few fellow bikers in here. Oh I miss the days of two wheeled transport, at one time Mrs A-E hated the idea but once she was on the back of a throbbing machine she soon changed her mind. :naughty:
I'm currently looking at buying an old machine, I must admit I do prefer the chrome and constant twiddling, i've never really taken to modern bikes as most of them now a days have ABS, aircon and a radio. I mean what use is aircon on a bike? What ever happened to the old days of a BSA dumping it's oil all over your driveway? Give me an old pre 90's bike anyday. :cheers:

I knew I liked you for some reason! ;)

Hahaha! Good old BSAs. Had a good friend with an old Triumph, got caught out after dark, and was reminded of just how bad the Lucas electrics really were. I think he called his headlight a "glow worm." No use for chrome myself, much to heavy. Now titanium, thats the way you want to go! :) There are plenty of tinkerable, dependable, non-oil spewing bikes pre '90 out there. The field is wide open. I've owned many myself - in fact it was only this past year that I have owned a bike newer than 10 years old! Here's to riding our "horses" on the open range!:cheers:

I had a Sabre 700 and before that a CB350! Mistress Queeg has a 1967 Bridgestone which we HAVE to get running one of these years!!!!
