Went to Cycle Gear today on the K6 and parked beside this Harley Soft Tail. And also met Eric another sohc4 rider and his 10/74 CB400. Stood out in the 90 degree heat for a hour talking about our old Honda's ;D Should of took a spin around the block, would of been cooler for sure.
Also bought some new riding gloves.

Overcast day here in Toronto but managed a short outing and snapped a few pics down by the lake with some sailboats and the skyline in the background.

Agreed.  Thanks for posting those right after my ghetto parking lot, cloudy Monday in Toronto shots...  I'll have a pretty sore ass with how far I'd have to ride to find that kinda scenery.

Thanks for the compliment, Iceland sure is beautiful and nice to work with in photos. But we also have the longest winters :)
Here is one from today, a foggy day and my schratcy looking bike, I love this bike.
