| 1998 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic
Owner: Ronald L. King,
San Diego, California, USA
Comments: “Attached are a couple of photos of my recent paint job, (October) on my 1998 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic.
|This picture was taken the day I picked up the bike. Doesn't it look a bit like a kid on Christmas morning?
Here's pictures of Ken's Suzuki GS750E
|1989 Honda GL1500 GoldWing
Owner: Ken Flauding, Aptos, California (North end of the Monterey Bay), USA
Comments: “In the past the Goldwing was not something of which I would consider. My first inclination was upon moving to Aptos, where one of my neighbors (Paul) owns a 2001 GL1800. Since I had the Suzuki with me, it has been the catalyst for a friendship which has surrounded weekend rides and motorcycle talk over the last two years.
The issue which started my quest for a Wing was instigated by one occasion when the Paul and Dave (another GL1800 owner). invited my wife Deedee and me to join them in a ride to the Pumpkin Festival at Half Moon Bay. My wife won't ride the Suzuki. She feels it is too small for both of us. I don't agree, but that's her choice. She ended up following us up in our car. She got to go, but it wasn't as much fun for her, I'm sure.
My search began in earnest this past summer, 2003. I spent months scanning the ads and looking for the perfect bike. What I had in mind was a large cruiser which would have enough power and comfort riding two up on long rides.
This 1989 GL1500K came to me through an add in Craig's List (SF). The owner had it since 1992. He had bought it in Yonkers, New York. When I picked it up, it had just under 45,000 miles on the odometer. It is in terrific condition, although I am having new Metzeler tires installed, and progressive springs put in the forks. Also, I'm adding a Super Brace to the forks for high and low speed control. (It keeps the forks from flexing and twisting) Other than a few miner tweaks, this bike came to me with good paint and leather. It is a fine bike which I am happy to have.
Even though this bike is a lot heavier than any other I've ridden in the past, it is nimble, fast and quiet. When I ride in the mountains it takes the curves in a way that is very surprising. It is going to be a real treat when I get to have my first love sitting with me on this bike, on the way to our next adventure to who the heck cares...as long as we get to Ride!

|1988 Honda CR500
Owner: Allan Tucker, Barbados
Comments: “Heres a photo of my '88 CR500 to put in the visitors photos files. It's got on a graphics kit I made for it that changes the whole look of this bike.
I bought it new in 88 and it replaced a '81 CR450R I resold to its original owner as he wanted his baby back.
This 500 has been extensively modified and sports front shocks I re-valved and re-sprung with adjustable preload top caps set up for my weight and riding style. The rear unit is a standard unit thats been Pro-circuit prepped/revalved as well.
The pipe and silencer is a Pro Circuit unit with a Works Connection skid plate and Cancilla zerk fitting linkage kit for the Pro-Link.
The engine has the wider ratio 4th and 5th gears from an '86 CR 500 fitted to improve the top end speed, with a Boyesen carbon reed and intake smooth flow casted reed cage fitted.
The cylinder barrel has been ported by myself, with careful attention paid to matching transfers and port timing, while the piston in use is a Wiseco std size forged unit.
An Answer ign module unit installed does a little magic with the electronic ignitions performance.
The chain and sprockets are Sidewinder units with o rings to help prolong the chains life, and an Acerbis guard protects the ft brake rotor and fork legs. Estimated power output is around 90bhp for this 231-pound machine.”
