I see a nice little CB360 there in the middle. B)

Edit: Or a CL since it has that type of exhaust. :blush:


You had it right. A CB360T. Nice bike. They were all nice bikes in their own right.

Just got back home safe and dry from escorting Kawickrice on his journey to GA. Clocked 146 miles, but made a stop to an Earl's Cycle Center in Ocala on the way back. Left the house at 10:10 am and made it back by 2:45 pm. All I have is some pictures of us at McDonalds and a gas stations, but Kawickrice will be posting the ture pictures this leg of the relay. Just wanted to break his ride up a little so its not just cars and trucks to look at all the way to Macon. It was an enjoyable ride. Had a few problems with bike. Will trouble shoot on another thread.

Met Kawickrice and is gal Debbie at wildwood. Not sure how long if any he waited for me. But as soon as I got into Wildwood my bike died on me. Reserve is non-existent. Left Debbie a message (she is supporting Kawickrice as a chase vehicle in case of trouble) and told her I'm 300 yards from the McDonalds we are supposed to meet at. Anyhow, gas station was 50 ft away. Pushed, gassed it up, fired her up, and made the last couple of hundred yards to meet them.

Wildwood, fl meet up:

Hi Jack, sorry didn't contact you. But everything was up in the air even up to this morning. I stopped in to see about syncing my carbs. But will need to change pilots first and go back some other day. Great place. He had a lovely Norton 850 Commando. Always wanted one. It was sold ($7000 he tells me). Spoke to Earl a bit about the Z's. Very nice guy. Was nice enough to let me take some pictures.

Here is some pics and story's of the 375 mile trip I had with the flag from Tampa FL to Macon, GA on April 21st 2012


I am in Wildwood, FL talking to jydog while I was waiting at the meeting spot so KZ900Joe could escort me to Gainsville, FL. Thanks Joe much appreciated.





The rain percentage was 80% for the trip. My wife was terrified to ride on the back that far in a monsoon so we came up with something that made us both feel safer. We decided that she should follow me with my van with trailer. Now I have a support vehicle with trailer if needed and she did not have to ride in the rain, win, win situation.

I met KZ900joe on the way and we rode for a while before he had to turn back, pics from support vehicle






Joe rode with me to Gainsville, Fl (Go Gators) We both needed gas so we gassed up shook hands wished each other a safe trip and went our different directions

Joe gassing up with his beautiful just redone KZ900







My Z1 getting a gas and go




I did encounter some rain not as bad as I was expecting. I had to stop to put on my rain suit.

Here I am crossing from Florida into Georgia. The KZR flag has officially crossed state lines with many more on the list.






Finally I am in Macon to meet jydog and his wife Angel.










The KZR Flag hand off to jydog





A pic of Angel on her Suzuki Savage 650




Me
and Debbie would like to thank jydog and his wife Angel for dinner after the long haul. Really enjoyed meeting yall and chatting about bikes over dinner.

Kz900joe I would also like to thank you for the escort it is just so much better with a riding partner


I would also like to send a shout out to fivestrings who tried like a mother to stop a cam plug gusher, but time was not on his side. He was to meet me at the Florida Georgia line and pass the flag to jydog in Macon, would have saved me a few hundred miles miles but the flag had to move and I stepped up to get it done.

I enjoyed the ride and the people I have met along the way. When this Flag has made the last hand off it will have made many many friends and interesting stories.
