Talking The Perfect Garage

With middle age I have struggled to find activities which my son and I could enjoy together. When I took up motorcycling again I quickly new that I had found one. So after a MSF class and a few thousand miles on the Yamaha Virago learner bike under close supervision I decided he was ready to step up to a good tour bike. (Who am I kidding? I wanted an RT to go with the LT.) So yesterday I flew to Indianapolis and picked up my new used '02 1150RT. 12 hours and 600 miles later I was home. Man that was a long ride! I think I got bugs in my teeth. Anyway, this afternoon after cleaning up the RT I realized that I may have built the perfect garage. Ain't she purdy?

Re: The Perfect Garage

I guess there is such a thing as garage envy. That looks great, lots of room. I could enjoy one of those. And an RT would be nice, too................

Every LT owners goal should be to have enough garage space so that if she falls she drops to the bumpers without hitting anything on the way down. Very nice set of rides.
