Atch, we are both about the same height, with short legs. I plan on lowering the Honda for myself anyway. Should work out.

I think that beginners class is a good idea, I might even take it. If I remember right, you get your endorsement easier when you take the class, no hokey riding test inthe parking lot.

Tom, yeah man the hills are killer. Even better after the Rally and you guys all go home! hahahahaha

Tman..it's been about 10 years since i rode a bike on the street.
Like you, i'm more into cars, but there's always been a spot for bike's too.
I LOVE fabricating, it's something thats become a major factor for me in whatever i try and do.
I picked up a triumph from my uncle last month, in pieces, and i'm stocked about getting back into it.
I'm deffinately NOT a biker..never claimed to be..
But i'd be lying if i didn't say there really is something special about getting on a bike and riding..no matter how close or far..
I have a feeling once i get this one built...there will be more to follow.

No matter what you start with....i have no doubt you'll be building the bike you want to build sooner than you think..
And judging by the pics i've seen of your touring, it'll be one kickass bike i'm sure!
Tony, I feel the same about the "biker thing" as you, thanks for the kind words about my touring!

Isnt it possible to also get a break on your insurance also if you take a course?? When I was active in oul local ABATE the chapter would pay the cost for you to attend a course, but I was never able to take advantage of it unfortunately.

you guy are makin' me feel good. i dont have to pretend. i havent owned or riden a bike in prolly 12 years. i've been so heavy and headfirst into cars i didnt really have the time. also the more i asked around i thought and bike was outta my price range. it turns out that bikes(like cars) can be found inexpencive if you wait and look long enough. theres also the goodguy-discount. i figured i'm not a bike, so i'd never get that kinda hook-up.

so now i have 2 50s chevies in my garage a complete BSA and a rolling chopper chassis. this should be a fun wrenchin' winter.
