100% complete and running when put away, famous last words.
I don't ride it much in the last 20 years, it make me feel like PeeWee Herman (and I'm not).
not that there's anything wrong with that.

Took the Yamaha out to get icecream tonight. Havent had it out in a month. Dead battery, got it going, hit the kill switch twice on the way to the store, front brake almost dosn't work, and the key fell out on the way back home, I found it in the dark. Always an adventure on a 35 year old bike.

Didn't do a lot of riding this past year, too many things going on that got in the way.

However, I DID got to race Willow Springs & Barber's on my trusty '69 Triumph Bonneville 650 Historic Production bike...

Image

Also managed to snag a ride on an LRC / GSXR1000 Formula 1 sidecar at Willow Springs (that's me in the rookie t-shirt hanging on for dear life)...

Image

My typical everyday ride is my 2000 Triumph Legend 900 TT triple...

Image

Right up until it spit it's chain which knocked a hole in the crankcase way back in February, my highway bike was my salvage built 2003 Kawasaki ZRX 1200R...

Image

Put a few miles on my '66 Triumph Bonnie...

Image

Also took this '53 Triumph T-Bird chopper to the local 4th of july bike show and won "Best Chopper"

There is a "sticky" topic thread at the top of the main Norton Commando section of this forum regarding photo posting instructions.

Basically, just click open a post or reply window, click the "Img" button, and paste in the link between the "img" and "/img" brackets.
