I was so disgusted with the brown rusty looking color of the pipes I took a flexible fine sanding block from a paint store and attacked it with wet sanding then fine steel wool and finished it off with motherís metal polish. Now about every 2k I use the Motherís metal polish. On top of that about a year ago I took the whole exhaust system to a metal polisher and had him polish it end to end, the finish was better then new and a lot easier to keep clean if you don't let it build up.

I love my S

I love my Yellow/Black '01 EVO ABS R1100S - although I do occasionally ride my previous '98 non-ABS red S (now the property of the Teensy Jenny)

Great looking bike sFarson...and scenery...where is that? Smuggler looks really good in that color.

Rattus and Jenny: What is that Sissy-bar type affair on the back of your bikes? I presume it is, infact, just that: a sissy-bar for holding bags etc.?

The photo was taken overlooking the Bear Creek drainage (looking east) with portions of Evergreen, Colorado below, in the distance. The road is the Squaw Pass road leading the Echo Lake and Mt. Evans.

The pic below was taken minutes before looking north towards the Continental Divide, the Indian Peak, and Rocky Mountain National Park in the distance. The S is very photogenic eh?

Hi 1967 R50/2 - yep ErricZ is absolutely correct, those are the extremely useful Ventura Racks. When not required the rack can be removed to restore a more sport orientated look, but I just keep in all the time. Also handy for putting the helmet on during fuel pitstops. I've installed a Ventura Rack on all my previous bikes too - then just strap on whatever you want or use in conjunction with Ventura's own luggage. Its good stuff.

Wink Other rides... Don't tell!

Here are two of my other rides 1965 /2 and 1968 US. They are hidden in the garage under sheets (Away from my wifeís eyes).

She has no idea I have two, so I can only have one uncovered at a time. It is one of those smoke and mirrors thing..

Re: Other rides... Don't tell!

Robert,

Those two are beauties. You know what I find funny? There are so many people that want to customize the hell out of their bikes but when it's time to restore a 30 plus year old bike the goal is to return it as close to stock as possible. Go figure. Definitely keep one hidden.

Robert-

I think I can help you out with the "smoke and mirrors".

I'll let you keep one in my garage!

Jdlowery that for sure, when you start working on there older bikes you would be surprised on what mods you find.

Ratus, they are very strange to ride. They are 600cc but only put out about 28-30 hp (I think). They are not fast, but they are very smooth.

1967 R50/2, I bet Donner would like a friend closer to his own age..

I want to put the 65 in the basement. The only thing in my way is 140Lb women and two flights of stairs..

Thanks for the compliment guys!
