    Still have my 2013 V star 1300 Deluxe. Arthritis is bad in left wrist and left ankle but still like the feel of a 2 wheeler.

    My 2012 Ness Vision has 76k+ miles on it. My wife rides a '19 Spyder RT so I bought my '15 Spyder F3S to put some miles on something else. I'm a hooligan rider and I've said that my Spyder is my no brainer ride. Riding my Vision I'm more alert, more on my toes, etc. Love them both for very different reasons/different riding styles.

    And currently, I am also out in the country.

    I mostly ride the Spyder ST but I have a 1991 Harley Sturgis that I ride occasionally to keep it going. The Sturgis is my keeper, as it's also a collectible limited edition. There are pictures of both in my Garage posting.

    But the ST will be going on a ride without me soon when my new 19 Asphalt Gray Chrome RT Limited arrives from iMotorsports. Woohoo!

    Divested ourselves of most of the stable in the past 2 years. We had 1990 Electraglide Sport (aka FLHS), a 2007 Trike Shop (now RoadSmith) Road Hawk VW based trike, a 2007 Goldwing 1800 with a Champion trike kit, a 2013 Triumph Bonneville and the 2018 Spyder RTL. The Road Hawk was the first to go, then I sold the Harley, as it was 28 years old, hard to find parts locally and the 2 HD shops nearby didn't seem to know how to work on a carb bike that you didn't plug in to find the trouble. We got the Spyder as Gloria never quite got the hang of using all 4 appendages at the same time on the Goldwing and she liked the Spyder when we test rode it at the Davis Rally in New Hampton, IA. The Gold Wing was sold at the end of last year, leaving us with the RTL and my Triumph Bonneville T100.

    I got my RT-L when my health said I didn't have the balance to ride two wheels. I sold my Cross Country Tour as fast as I could because I didn't want it bringing up the memories. I love my RT-L but three wheels are just not the same as two.

    Don't see too many of those anymore. I saw one last year heading in the opposite direction at a campsite, and it didn't sound like a motorcycle, much more like a car, but I guess that is what they were shooting for.

    What is that big ugly thing on the side of your front fork..... if that is some sort of an inspection sticker cant you put it some place else ???? like maybe on the inside of your side bag lid

Two wheels is not really an option for me any more,so the Venture just sits,I have no idea what I'll do with it.
    Hey Paul a buddy of mine has one Venture... when the engine went south on it he found a V-MAX and put that engine in it, fastest damn Venture you ever saw

    Thats where they put it, prob better than somewhere on the tupperware. On the Spyder, they put it on the bottom of one of the passenger floorboards, so when they are down you never see it.

    hehehe, probably more than most folks would want to see. Here are a just few; the first is from a trip to shoot bluebonnets in central Texas in April of 2005, just a week after I completed a winter's worth of custom work on it (same one from the collage). I bought it in Oct. 2004 with 12760 miles on it. Just rolled past 134K last week. It's my favorite ride and a great machine.
