Agreed, and a beautiful place to keep them as well. Nice!
Thanks Guys! tnichols, these bikes know many of the roads in Jones and Jackson counties well. I lived in Vinton and then Cedar Rapids for over 30 years before moving to AZ full time. I still get to enjoy those roads a couple of times a year when visiting close friends with extra bikes for me to ride. Here's a pic of my R90s on the ridge road that runs north from Anamosa to Prairieburg.

In the north Phoenix area. I'm fortunate to be close to Ben Avery and a private shooting range that has multiple long range platforms with a great selection of steel targets placed from 100 yards out to 1375 yards. I spend most of my time on the precision rifle platforms banging steel.

Nice! Down in the Chandler area for me, which is unfortunate because all the good long range areas seem to be up your way, haha.

My '03 FZ1 Bumble Bee's in the shop for a suspension overhaul, so I'll have to join the fun with photos when she get's back!

It ain't much, but this is one that I'm selling right now. I've had it for well over a decade, and rode it all over Western Canada a lot of years ago. I won't deny that it is a 'different' type of ride and comfort from my Road King.

Those old bikes have a small, but dedicated following. I'd ride it.

Cool, brother! I rode one of that vintage...the prevalent social blather that if you don’t ride a certain brand you are not quite part of the crew is nothing more than an identity crisis issue for some...I say it is about riding 2 wheels and wind in the hair!!

I was just talking bikes with a customer the other day and explained my sentiments of the same mindset. I've owned (and enjoyed owning) Kawasaki and Yamaha, and would still like to try products from Honda, Suzuki, Triumph, KTM, BMW, Ducati, etc. They pretty much all turn out a good product anymore. Pick what you like and ride!

Sorry I just saw this. I know that road well! Nice riding in that area (for Iowa). 😊
