    "regular" "natural"-- do you actually mean stock?
    My pronouns are she/hers.

    To ride is to live.

    There, and back again. (photos from the epic journey)

      Any Hawk (stock or modified), but only Honda Hawk GTs this time. We’ve been doing lots of alternative concepts like cars other bikes etc., so just bringing it back to roots this month.

      Sorry for any confusion.

            Yeah, I had it better when I had the clipons slightly higher - still a work in progress here... I am not the best at fabbing brackets but I can make it work.

              Spencer's Superbike came to mind...

                Here is another entry for HOTM.
                Decided to give my 89 a bath today. It looked so good, I took some pictures. Bought it in 2016 and now has 27906 miles so I put 13957 miles on it over the years. Added a used front Kosman Wheel with new rotor, ss brake line and adjustable hand lever, frame sliders from forum member, WW tail tidy, Hord did a fork kit and Penske shock for me. I rebuilt the eccentric and did pod filters, Fuel slip on, and rejetted. Put on a corban seat, thermae radiator, a fan override switch and simple wind screen and changed the grips and I like to polish things. All was done a few years ago. Never sits more than 30 days without going on a ride. In better weather I ride it 2 or 3 times a month around the area especially on day rides in the mountains. It has never quit, so keeping it till I can't ride anymore.

                        Well, well, well...

                        That's not your grandmother's Honda anymore.

                            Being a second generation hawker, I know the source of that inspiration.

                            I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.
