Yeah, all of those were on one trip on my 550. There is a trip report on the travelers rest forum, but its still in progress.

hmm, I never heard of that. I had cops see and follow me multiple times but no one ever said a word.

Of course the last two were not from my trip, nor on my 550. But I thought that would have been obvious...  :)

Nice K0 Dager.

I spent many a summer on Indian Lake just outside Millerton. We spent mornings and evenings fishing and the days shooting woodchucks in farmer's pastures. We would hunt night crawlers for fishing on the lawn of a nearby girl's school.
We'll all be someone else's PO some day.

Since I was around 10 or 12 at the time, hunting worms it was. Now, since that was more than 50 yrs  :'( ago, the girl's school is either gone, or a bed and breakfast now and pastures are probably filled with condos or McMansions. ;)

That's was such a great trip, can't wait to do it again!! And I've been thinking a lot about that trip to Helena, GA. for a nice long excursion through the mountains to catch some scenery and curves;D ;D
Cafe Racing is mainly a matter of taste. It is an atavistic mentality, a peculiar mix of low style, high speed, pure dumbness, and overweening commitment to the Cafe Life and all its dangerous pleasures. I am a Cafe Racer myself, on some days - and it is one of my finest addictions. ~H. S. Thompson~

This is a grainy B&W from 1974 and a bunch of guys I worked with at a Honda shop. We're on the way to road races at Loudon NH and I'm surveying the damage from a nasty get-off earlier in the day. It was actually worse than it looks here with what's left of the tailight taped to the seat. Good old days except for that one!





The same ole bike this summer.

This is my 78 750 on Signal Hill in St. John's Newfoundland Canada. (where the first transatlantic wireless radio transmission was received by Guglielmo Marconi, on Dec. 12, 1901 ) ;)

Behind the bike to the far left, you can see the Cape Spear Lighthouse (most easterly point in north America.)


Second one  is in Bay Bulls Newfoundland Canada

cheers

jako

this is kinda cool so i thought i'd share with you Jako,   i ride my cb 750 on marconi road right past the old tower where that transmission was sent from here in wall, new jersey.  its a fun little road that runs next to the shark river.  i should send you a pic of my bike in front of it.
don't take me too seriously.
