A few weeks ago I flew out to Norther California, and picked up a childhood dream. And rode her back 1500 miles to Denver. The Busa has not been getting a lot of love lately, since she's been home.
Riding back from NorCal was awesome, got to ride the coast up there for the first time.
Rode down to Eureka from Crescent City, then headed over 299 to Redding. Went from 50 to 105 between the coast and the central furnace of California.
After Redding I headed to my friend's place in Carson City by way of rt 44 through the Lassen NF.
The rest of the ride home was a straight shot across HWY 50 in Nevada and Utah, then 70 back home through Colorado. Some more pics of the new toy below.

So yeah, the Busa has been spending a lot of time in the garage, while I've been having a blast putting around on a 38 year old bike . Driving a sidecar rig is like nothing I've done before, and brings a smile to my face every time I drive it. Of course, after driving the old bike all week, when I got back on the Busa last weekend, it was like the first time again.. WHOOOSH!
If you have to ask me why...you wouldn't understand!!
Don't mess with Vabs....she's a sneaky one!
No passenger? That would be the ultimate saddlebag!
Very cool! Enjoy that ride. Eventually you'll get the need for speed again, and the Busa will be waiting for you.
Beautiful!!! That is soooo cool! Everytime my wife sees one she says "That would be perfect for me and the dog".

Just doesn't seem fair that the luggage/passenger get a windshield and the driver doesn't.
Well, if you have to
There are a whole lot of worse choices to do it with! I have always wanted a ride w/a sidecar. An old Triumph would be my choice...

Dude, that looks like an early mid '70's BMW. Enjoy, you'll be back
Old machine looks to be excellent condition..must be, given your journey through the furnace n all.
That is very nice. I know you are having a blast on it. Enjoy.

Those were nice looking rides when I was a kid. I guess part of that was the boxer and you didn't see many of them. They were all silver like yours Of course I've bought nothing but in-line 4's since '78 , yes I'm old as dirt
