Default New Toy

About 20 years ago, I owned no less than 12 different bikes, all at the same time. Everything from little 3-wheelers, dirt bikes, to Cafe Racers(called crotch-rockets these days). It got to the point that I wasn't even a little bit scared to try and do anything on 'em. Fortunately, I realized how stupid this was. Sold 'em all and had not touched a scoot for 20 years......Until yesterday. I bought this.

Was shakin' like a leaf for the 1st few miles. It felt GOOD ! ! ! I guess that new Kimber will have to wait a bit...oh well......I think I can find something to occupy my time with....

Nice motorbike... I like it, it's a marvel of engineering.
What is the engine capacity ?

I guess it would help if I told ya'll what it is. Suzuki Volusia with the Intruder 800 motor. But, it's not exactly factory specs.....
BTW, thanks.

I'm both sad and happy for you brother-- that's some serious metal. A shame though-- I would have sold you my pro carry II for a reasonable sum. All in all, that's a beautiful bike man. I haven't ridden in ten years when my uncles Road King seized on me and sent me skidding sideways down a steep curve on a hill. I'm still shakey after that-- but seeing that beast makes me remember why I liked riding.

You know what to do.
