I've got a 1986 Suzuki Cavalcade I'm putting together right now. It was in a low speed crash/tumble so I am in the process of replacing lots of plastic and the wind screen.

I haven't owned a street bike in at least 14 years so I am very excited to be back on the road soon.

In the 90's I had a pro street 1976 Z1 900 Kawasaki that was stretched, lowered, punched out, and raked. I used to drive it on the street with the wheelie bars and 8.5" wide slick all the time. I never had any issues with cops because I never raced in on the street. I did spend A LOT of time at Ubly Dragway with it.

Guess my original battery finally decided to loose it's balls. After the battery Tender sat on it for a week, it just didn't have the guts to turn the motor over even once.

So I jumped it and went for a ride! Wasn't really that nice of a day around here yesterday, but it was nice just to get out.

I'm still working out the details but have set the date and location.

Blessing of the Bikes
Northville, Community Park
Saturday May 14th. 1:00pm

Going to have a little Biker get together. There will be a BBQ (donations accepted only), at the pavilion. Then a Bike Blessing. Then head out for a ride for a few hours. More details to follow soon, and I will also start a thread in the M&G Forum.

If you think you can make it please post up in the M&G thread, would like to have an idea for the BBQ.

Nice looking bike. Did you need to do any work to it or just hop and ride?

had some custom work done today

it's a bad bad feeling to see a lexus coming and not be able to do anything but brace yourself and wait for it to happen...






Sittin' in the southbound lane on genessee at atherton with my left blinker on ...oncoming traffic coming through the light. No where to go and could see her bearing down on me (on her way to a soccer game). About all i could do was plant my left foot and lift my right leg and hold on... The bag just friggin' exploded (was only 36 degrees today).
I suppose i'm lucky it was just a bag and a blinker as it could easily have been my right leg taken off at the knee or thrown me into oncoming traffic.

Anyhow, I hope this is my 1 for the season and hope it serves as a reminder that the cagers are not looking for bikers this early in the season (if at they ever do).
I think i will be getting a bacon-pockets vest....

Wow! Glad you're alright. Also a good reminder to always check your 6.
