The new trifecta...

Bought the 2018 GTL and traded in the black 2015 GT. Too much "White-fecta?"




































And then there is this "Addition" in the background....LOL.

Expensive toys but I like your choices.

The GTL looks huge from that perspective.

They are but material things. Here today, gone tomorrow....And I'm still the same person.

"Things" should not define who you are but rather where your interests lie.....Just sayin'

Top pix of the morning for me, just a fabulous collection of fun "things"! Very impressive, and what a boatload of fun they must be. AND, your quote (above) really puts it in perspective. Reading and agreeing with that made my day!


Thanks for sharing.

How do you find the Pure to ride? I heard it puts a LOT of strain on your upper body.

The "Racer" is a strain riding position wise but I use it for it's intended purpose, short rides with lots of stops. It's not a true a "Racer" in the sense of speed and handling, It's not a fast bike by any means but the visceral experience is amazing. the engine note is intoxicating and for a moment or two you are reliving the era of the dunstall racing type or ride. Overall a very impractical bike but see it for what it is. A joy to ride on short trips and the smiles never end.
