    It is not sacrilege to repaint it (the same color) now is it?
    Both are upgrades I would have done had I kept the bike.

    Good to hear you made it home ok. When I got back from dinner I mentioned to my wife that I thought you were going to be hard pressed to make it home Sunday night. It took everything I had to make to Shirley's rally in June in one day. 590 miles in 12 hours was a lot. You had about the same to do in one day.

    I like the pictures you took. You've got a good eye.

    It was great to hook up for drinks and dinner. It's always cool to connect with other members. Tell me the next time you're in town. Enjoy the bike.

    I usually make it up there 1 or 2 times per year.

    Yea I had a blast indeed. ..

    I decided not to make myself miserable so I broke it into 3 legs with the middle being 400 miles.

    I will let you know for sure .. loved that restaurant .. what was the name of it ?

    Cool. we'll have to hook up again.

    I wish I had made the Fab Rally trip in two days. It would've been more enjoyable.

    The restaurant is called Salt Water Grille. It's especially great in the summer cause you can sit on the deck over the water.

    I really like the current color too, but if I spent money I would probably be too tempted to make it a brighter silver rather than anything else. I love the contrast between a black motor and bright silver paint. Probably one of the main reasons I made the final decision on my FZ1.

    I had so many people drool over that bike, Harley rider, chopper guys, Ducati riders, sport riders... women of all makes and models \\/ You'll see so many people that really appreciate the bike. Enjoy the attention!

    Leaving there, I will ride to South Portland Maine to visit some family for a couple of days.

    The weekend of October 20 and 21 will be my longest weekend of riding (should come in at just about 1000 miles) as I make my way back to Kentucky.

    I will post up as I can. ..

    Found this old thread - Ron (1978GS750E) is helping me wake this bike up from a very long slumber. I'm excited to GS again.
