Truth be told, I've not ridden  my 650's in about two years now.....

I miss my '94 terribly but it had such bad brakes I was seriously afraid of dying astride it.....

The 750 Solo sT is just fine and dandy ~ I have to top up the gear box more often that I'd like but it runs and rides great :thumbsup!: .

William ;

Imagine how pleased I am to still be alive and riding ! :smileywaving:  .

We've been getting serious rain this winter and i bought some new tarpaulins for my fleet of old Tiddlers, the '94 is under there too and as always whenever i'm under the trap, I depressed the starter pedal and was dismayed to find the engine stuck :ohmy:  .

I'll have to drag it out and see if Diesel fuel will soak the rings loose .

Wow! I has been sitting for a long time.

I've had a lot of fun with the doc recently, mostly good. That heart starter thing I had put in about 7 years ago needed a battery change. It then got infected and the Docs took it out. It won't be going back in again as I'm too healthy!:):):). Now for this prostate ######.......That PSA thing is a pretty ###### poor diagnostic tool if you ask me, and as for the biopsy!

Still riding the a Duc as well as the CJ750. I lost my job just in time for Christmas so I've had to cut back on things a lot. On the up side my eldest past his 125cc test last year and my youngest has restored an Aprilia RS50 moped ready for starting college. Life is still busy and fun. Hope you and yours are doing well.

VERY good to hear your hear is good enough to not need the device ! .

PSA's are actually one of the very best diagnostic tools out there but it appears most Doctors only look at the #'s levels, no the amount of change which is the important part .

Go read Snowbum's site on this ~ his self diagnosis using a change his Dr. said was insignificant, prolly saved his life .

I hear you on the lack of fund$ thing ~ I'm close to poverty level right now but I'm also a (damn) Yankee Farm Boy so I learned to live within my means (no matter how meager) a long, long time ago so I think I'll make it O.K. .

Mind your health ~ once it's gone little else is left .
