I picked up a '78 R80/7 a few months ago about 2.5 hours North in Pomona. Purchased the bike and rode it home. Spent the last couple of months turning it into a cafe' scrambler themed R bike and got to ride it the first time after getting it rewired last week. Can't wait learn more about this thing as I gain more experience with it as I picked it up like you - To be a commuter. Mine is a bit longer, about 13 miles or 20 minutes, but in San Diego it's not so bad.

I do find myself jealous of the time I see people who are on YouTube have to become fully engaged in these endeavors. Two jobs, two homes, a wife, and two year old daughter make it difficult for me to find more than 60 minutes here or there when I feel like you need entire weekends to really get involved.

Oh well, I'll continue to age and things will slow down so I probably shouldn't hope for that to arrive any sooner than it has to!
