A recent photo of my 1994 Yamaha Seca II (XJ600S), the yellow one with the fairing.

I'm thinking of doing a naked conversion on the bike, taking off the fairing and going with a single or dual (Triumph-style) round headlight.  Attached a few photos of bikes from XJRider.com for reference!  

Thoughts?  :-]  I haven't decided on color, yet.  Ideally I'd repaint maybe the frame in anthracite grey, and get some matching racing stripes on the tank.  Or maybe I won't stick with yellow.  Not sure yet!

+Rania Madanat Well wouldn't that be cool?  :-)  Mine was $1,600 in excellent condition, from a dealer.  I talked them down but not much.  They can be had for less, the average I've seen is $1,000-1,200 however most aren't in as good condition.  I did drop mine once, but very slow speed (5 mph) so only scratched the exhaust and right side bar end, and put a dent in the fairing that I'm going to fix and repaint even if I remove it.  It's very obvious that it was cared for.

Fabulous scooter blog I just found out about, courtesy of +Velocity Cycles  in Mechanicsburg, PA where my wife and I bought her 2013 Honda PCX-150 last year.  This blog is a lot of fun for couples who love to ride, or anyone really!
I have my motorcycle skills test today! It starts with a pre-trip inspection where I have to identify certain items on the scooter like the horn, kill switch, and turn signals for example - hopeful...

I love winter, but with the slight warm-up this week I'm getting the itch to ride!   Pictured is my '94 Yamaha Seca II, and the object of my affections lately which is the Honda 919.  Likely to be my second bike, one of these days!  This particular one is a nice example out in Ohio that I saw on CycleTrader.

This will be only my second season riding, but I can't wait.  Thanks +Rania Madanat!

+Motorcycle.com  finally reviewed the new Honda CBR650F.  I like this bike - just wish it had ABS available with other colors than black, and adjustable suspension would be nice.

Test rode a new Honda CTX-700N at a dealer nearby. What a cool bike! This one had DCT, my wife is considering it for herself, maybe in a year or so. She wasn't up for riding today, bit I had a great time. Very comfortable, and quick, and that transmission is SO slick.

Also ogled a BMW R1200R, which is a favorite of mine, and saw a BMW HP4 as well. Zoom!

I've lived in the area for 10 years, and remember when Sun was in its old building, farther east down the Carlisle Pike. When the new facility opened, I used to cruise through on days off, just to ogle the cars. A couple years ago, I bought a used BMW 328 SportWagon (private sale) with a remaining CPO warranty. Brought it in to the BMW side only a couple of times, and the experience was fine. Just the other day though, my wife and I spotted a nice Certified Audi Q5 2.0T over at Audi Mechanicsburg/Sun Audi, and ended up purchasing it. It is a much nicer vehicle than others we were considering for her, but for the price, we couldn't resist. We dealt with a dapper salesman named Alem Imamovic, who is extremely polite and accommodating. He was open about all the details about the car, not missing anything - in my experience, a rarity for a car salesman. The fact that we could ogle Porsches from the Audi showroom didn't hurt. :-] Hopefully we won't need to bring the Q5 in for service for much beyond normal items, and what I can't fix myself (I can do oil/fluids, most brake work, and other basic-to-intermediate work). However if we do, I hope that Audi Service at Sun is equally satisfying.

I brought my wife's car in to Jon last week, to investigate an issue that's been going on. We spoke on the phone briefly before I brought it by, and I left the car for the day. When I went to pick it up, he was completely honest with his findings and charged me MUCH less for his diagnostics than I was expecting. Yet he did a very thorough job with the car. This is a real mechanic, and I am extremely happy that he's so close to where I live! He also does motorcycle inspections, which is an added bonus for riders who need a place for yearly stickers! I have no idea how I never knew this place existed - but I'm glad I found it and will be going back, for sure.

Just picked up my wife's car, after having a quarter panel replaced, which was severely rusted. It is a 2001 Subaru Outback, which was rear-ended about six years ago, and had the rear quarter panel replaced. Well, whatever place we went to through our insurance company, obviously used second-rate parts. The panel started to rust a couple of years ago, and by this spring, looked really bad. I had spoken with RA Smith last year, so finally got around to bringing it to them. I had the car with them for just under a week. In that period of time, they cut out the entire back section of the quarter panel that was bad, and hand-formed a new metal piece. It looks absolutely perfect. The paint matches spot-on with the OEM paint, and I spent some time walking around the shop with the owner. Great people, excellent work, can't say enough good things!

My wife and I stayed at a hotel (Abitart) right near Flame, in December 2010. It is not in a tourist part of Rome, but we found the food at Flame, to be some of the best we had our entire trip. The owner, Roberto, is wonderful and would often sit and talk with us. It is not a far walk from the Pyramid of Cestius and Piramide train/Metro stop, right along Via Ostiense. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

My wife and I live nearby, where there aren't a lot of restaurant choices. I'd love to be excited about T.J.'s but I'm just not. The beer menu is great - five stars for that. But our food is always a 50/50 gamble. We've had good, and we've had terrible. The location in Elizabethtown is the oldest one, and I never hear bad things about them. Word is that the chefs at the Mechanicsburg location are not as good. Now, I've not been there for at least a year, so maybe things have improved but based on 6-8 visits to Mechanicsburg's T.J.'s prior to that, I can't give it more than three stars. Believe me, I want to. Where we live, it'd be the default restaurant/bar for a quick stop. I want to love it... but experience tells me not to.

Well, it seems that reviews for VA Tire & Auto/Good Year Gemini are mixed. Not much of a surprise - it's a car garage. Most are hit-or-miss, unfortunately depending on incident, tech or service rep. In our case, the experience was more than positive. My wife and I were driving home to PA from SC on New Year's Eve (12/31/09) and had just gotten off of I-66 to Rt. 15 north. About a mile or two up, dash lights appeared on our Subaru Outback. The power steering was gone, so I pulled over and popped the hood. The serpentine belt had popped off, so I called a flatbed. In the meantime I'd spoken with Chris at VA Tire, who said we could bring the car in... if we got there in time! They were closing up early, for the holiday. Very thankfully, the flatbed arrived within 20 minutes, and we were at VA Tire about 45 minutes pre-closing. Long story short, a belt pulley had frozen up due to a bad bearing. A simple fix for the Gemini tech, and we were back on the road within two hours, starting from the time of the "breakdown" (which isn't really accurate, since the car was still running fine). Chris the VA Tire service desk rep, and our tech (can't recall his name) were great. My wife was even floored by how clean the bathroom was - and VERY nicely decorated for a doctor's office, let alone a mechanics' shop. We even had our yellow Labrador retriever with us, and VA Tire let us bring her inside, since it was pouring rain. Everyone got to pat the dog, which is always fun. So... our experience was very positive. The price was extremely reasonable, I think $60-ish out the door, including the new part - so it was probably a flat-rate charge for an hour's labor. No lies, no deception, no half-clever tricks to try and get us to buy things we don't need. I hope that the positive reviews outweigh the negative, for VA Tire - at least in our experience, they deserve it.
