Those are some nice rides. Looks like some great options when you open the garage door.

When I first heard about Indian putting a fairing on their bikes, I thought "That ain't right". But after seeing them, I think they done a good job make it work with the styling.

Good lookin stable! The Injun is sweet. Like the spot location on your V2K but where ya put the feets? Glad your back too. I picked up a Sporty C 1200 while back. Makes a nice change for those short jaunts.

The wife and I were thinking about making that stretch of the BRP this year. We have rode the NC sections several times since I am closer to it being down in the corner of VA. What did you think about it?

As of now we (the wife and I) have to think and plan cause we both work and have a 5 yo daughter. Maybe one of these days I can just take off when i wish but sending the young one off to college will be at least 13 years and then retirement is an even further thought.

Must say I envy your stable Ponch. You gonna take that Injun down those dirt/gravel roads west of town? You know, the ones you led us down?

Had a nice February here too, got a few hundred miles on the XR...it's more comfy than my couch any day of the week. The Vic dealers I frequent (all both of them) didn't pick up Indian, and I'm not even sure there's an Indian dealer in the state. Guy here in town has a Gilroy Indian, and it's a sharp enough bike, but I think Polaris has done something pretty impressive with their take on the nameplate. Hopefully I get the opportunity to throw a leg over one soon.

bakroads are the key to the heart of this country.. not always need to be dirt or gravely type, some just pan out that way. Ive done plenty of superslab and will do more.. butt, the bakroads is where you meet the real 'mericans. ponchout
