Thank you, as you know the added companionship brings a smile to me and many others as we cruise along. From lunch at an observatory to, a ride to a local airport, the skeptical look from my co-pilot about being fuel efficient may be justified...

That is one well-outfitted dog. Thanks for sharing.

I still miss Baxter; his collar rides in the elastic pouch in the trunk. That way it feels like he’s on every ride I take.

It’s never lost on me that this is my co-pilots rig and time together is precious , Sammy and Baxter added much enjoyment obviously!!! Yesterday we stopped by a few monuments to reflect on this Memorial Day. This is Libby’s rig but she was gracious in allowing her seat to be taken by a family friend who celebrated his 78th yesterday. He is a Vietnam vet and I was honored to share a drink and ride with him. It capped off a good day. :cheers:

Re: Cruising with my monkey

It was another 6 hour ride to nowhere. My monkey likes to climb the jungle gyms at schools, it only seemed fitting to let a curious and respectful young man climb up on the GU. We traveled off the beaten path and shared a lunch in a shady nook in a huge field. Perfect sidecar day for us... :cheers:

Snow last week fading away, today’s gift is 60 degrees. Luckily more snow on the horizon.

I squeezed a ride in before Winter Storm Gail gifted us with ~10" of heavyish snowfall.

Later, after Gail had said her piece, one of the other garage residents paid their rent. Note the absence of a sissy cab; we run the machines like real men. :P

Hey Now Lofty, I have one of those "sissy cabs" and believe me they are worth it. Don't always have the opportunity to clear on a nice Sunny day.

Looks like we have the same machine HSS928A. Except mine is the "wheeled" rather than the "tracks". I have to go up and down some steps so I went with the wheeled but kinda wish I had the tracks now. The controls are the same as the tracked model so weird maneuvering with the wheels.


I wasn't going to go thru this crap again, I think I'm wearing MC googles in this picture:

And the beauty of the "sissy cab" is that in the 3 years I've had it installed it hasn't snowed. Until a week ago. Broke one shear-bolt, heavy stuff:

I am getting out on 20+ days. My one run is off as they max out with some kind of melt stuff at the store parking lot. Go Gravel!

The YS624 dates back to 1998 and is still going gangbusters. No snow in 4 weeks though.

Nice looking machine.
Funny how the Outdoor Equipment Divisions keep to the same as the motorcycles, Red for Honda and Blue for Yamaha.
