No. I'm not even on the same farm.. I sold my VFR last weekend and the garage space I now have is very welcome.. The money I took out of my savings to buy the FZ6 has been returned, and it's going to stay there..

I just love the limited edition of this Guzzi and of the Triumph Thruxton Special Edition..



If I won the lottery tonight, both of these bikes would be in my driveway before dark tomorrow..

LOL!!! That never seems to be too much of a problem.. My other addiction will be tested on Oct. 1rst. I'm working down in Macon, GA and I'll be done on Thursday.. That means I'll have time to run over to Anniston, AL and go M1 Garand shopping on Friday morning, before flying home in the evening..

Not my video, but this shows just what a test of one's will can happen if you walk in the door at the Civilian Marksmanship Program's South Store.. (I won't say how many times I've been there).

gorgeous bike.......I don't get as excited about most of the classics being 6'5 and having my knees touch the handle bars on these little bikes....

I would rather have the rifle, but in Cali those rarely make an appearance ....like all cool rifles. There so hard to find. I'll stick with my shottys

Not that I'm trying to drag this off topic, but CMP rifles are available to everyone, including California residents. It's a goverment program and all you have to do is meet the qualifications and you can order one. The rifles are delivered to your door. The M1 carbines are gone, but there's a lot of Garands available (thousands)..

I like picking out my own rifles and will be at the South Store in Anniston, AL on Oct 1rst, after my job in Macon, GA is finished.

I'll check it out....of course I just bought panniers form Happ-Trail last week so cash flow is restricted till my wife forgets about my purchase ...

edit; I don't think your right about the delivery to my door. Cali has some funked up laws. I think it would need to go to a dealer first before I could pick it up, and of course pay their fee. But I'll check on that none the less.
