I was there a couple years ago. I unloaded a project bike I was floundering with and dumped another project bike that I had never touched yet. Took that money and bought a $900 KLR650 and rode the shit outta that bike for the next year. It wasn't great at anything, but it could do anything you wanted. Probably the funnest 10k miles I ever put on a bike.

No personal experience with Pacific Coast's, but they have a cult following. Obviously great bikes that some people never can seem to part with.

Haven't had cash to put towards a down payment to make it happen, so it prolly wont. Between truck getting new tires, and sucking gas like a ho sucks cock, it keeps my wallet emptier than I like. Christ Almighty I miss driving my Mazda....

So anyway, I'm waiting on a check to show up, and trying to pull a little more cash together beyond that, I've got leads on a GS750, complete. Gonna try to get that, more to fix and sell than to keep and ride. What I /REALLY/ want to pull off right now is a bike that a buddy of mine just came into possession of. Suzuki Madura 1200. Yep, quick way back into the V4 game. I've got some ideas for it if I get it. I'd share them here, but we'll wait and see if it happens first.

Dammit Dave, you damn stalker!


But I think you misinterpreted, or I misstated. I'm not trying to get a Madura like my buddy's, I'm trying to buy my buddy's.

And what the fuck on that first one?????

Disturbingly, this is about to see more work than the Madura.......

Right about now I'm ready to murder just to ride something, and since I only need a few hard parts, it might actually be easier and faster to finish assembling this than to take apart the Madura and do all the cleanup on it. Plus the Madura needs tires, battery, title, etc.

Well, this needs a title too, but odds are I can have this one together quicker anyway. And cheaper too since I already have tires for it.

The Kohler is about to be a very distinct possibility again. I just went through the harness for it tonight, got it stripped down to the basic operations. I'm gonna order a gasket set for the Kohler, it needs to be taken apart, severely cleaned up, and put back together. Debating governor removal on it, don't know if I can get a billet flywheel for it or if I'm stuck with the cast iron wheel.

Also, I feel absolutley sick saying this, but I'm starting to look at Harley's. Now that they're basically Victory powered, they just aren't Harley's anymore........which makes me giddy
