    I think riding on a weekday helps eliminate a lot of traffic. I did see some motorcycles yesterday. Interestingly, about half were BMWs.

    1976 R75/6 to poormans RS54

    I bought a non-running 76' R75 with unknown true miles, a previously removed Windjammer, a lot of period touring modifications. Stripped it down, found a broke clutch actuator rod, and a stuck clutch. Rebuilt,cleaned, regreased, and painted almost everything. Then, welded up a rear sub frame to move the top of the shocks back 5cm and clean up the look. The starter cover is from BoxerCafe. It really changed the look of the /6 engine. The headlights are small LED, as are the front turn signals and rear turn/stop/brake/combo light. The seat was made locally buy a boat upholsterer. I'd made the base pan and gave him lots of photos. It's a rattle can paint job with gold pinstripe tape. It should be white but, my wife is English and likes gold pinstripes. A good friend of mine gave me the complete exhaust. I think it makes the bike. Sounds incredible too.

    Hopefully I attached the photos correctly.

    I like it, good job. Looks like a fun bike to ride. I'm sure it gets a fair amount of attention. Barry

    Riding through George Washington National Forest this morning and crossed a path. It turned out to be the Appalachian Trail. Not much to it. The trail is narrow and unassuming. A small ground level sign in the distance identifies the trail.

    That's a pretty bike. And look, gravel road!

    There are two roads in life; the dirty one is vastly more fun.

    And look, no traffic! Bluehole knows all the best roads, paved or unpaved. I've followed him on both types.
