    Default June Bike of the Month

    Seriously?

    We're almost two weeks into June and not one mention of that gorgeous 1150EF?

    You’re right. That is stunning. I always come right to the forum and forget to look at the main page unless someone chimes in here. Eugene has a gorgeous bike.

    That is a gorgeous motorcycle! I'm sorry I've skipped over the GS Resource Motorcycle of the Month. My phone just skips to the forum pages... No offense to anyone, but I am happy to see the quality of motorcycles and photos has improved lately. I've went to great lengths to get Motorcycle of the month, to no avail... Congratulations 👍

    Yes, lovely bike. Like Norm, I typically go straight here, so bike of the month is often forgotten about.
    The owner is regularly on one of the FB groups, and I've watched it go thru the process of becoming what it is.

    That fork reflector once lived on my ES....

    That is my bike! Thanks for the honor! I bought that last fall had nothing done to it for 15 years or so. Typical mostly there but hardly nothing works right. Was leaking from the valve cover, peeling paint, carbs fouled. 20 year old tires. I have replaced all engine cover gaskets, new clutch, Carbs redone and jetted for pod filters, rebuilt the cluster using led lighting, all electrics gone through. Valves adjusted, new valve cover gasket. New Dyna Coils. New plug wires. All grommets new. Brakes gone through. Starts on choke, easily pulls past redline in all gears.

    Maybe it's your composition, Norm. this one isn't much on the background, so I don't know what to say. I got last Octobers BOM on my first try and it was taken on my flip phone. I know how nice Steve's '79 1000 is, so it should be a no brainer. I've been thinking or trying with Red, but I need to polish the cases back up to do that.

    Actually, I think they ALL belong to members.

    The problem is that the BOM shows an actual name as the owner, but there is no reference to their screen name.

    I have sent a couple of requests to "the powers that be", asking to have the screen name added to the picture caption, evidently it's not a priority item.

    .

    mine: 2000 Honda GoldWing GL1500SE and 1980 GS850G'K' "Junior"
    hers: 1982 GS850GL - "Angel" and 1969 Suzuki T250 Scrambler
    #1 son: 1986 Yamaha Venture Royale 1300 and 1982 GS650GL "Rat Bagger"
    #2 son: 1980 GS1000G
