    Hot damn! Now we're talking! Nasty, hellish, brutish beast indeed! Guys who've never ridden a big-bore two-stroke just have no idea. Like going on a date with the devil's own daughter! Or petting that pet rattlesnake that sleeps in the corner!

    I'm impressed, Charlie...

    Here's what the old V71a looks like on the bike. Control head is on a custom made slide mount that electrically connects when inserted. PTT under left grip. Coiled microphone/speakers cable plug into the bike via waterproof RJ45 jack. Antenna is a Larsen NMO-2/70B Black antenna mounted on homemade and sealed half wave grounding mast with "N" connector on bottom. Antenna/mast assembly is easily removed via three set screws and the LMR200 cable is safely stored on the female "N" connector after unscrewing protective cap. All connections are waterproof.

    I ride an outfit due to severe arthritis H-D XL1200 custom with sidecar which collectively have a lot of ironmongery which make a great ground plane. SO239 mounted between bike and sidecar with a 2m/70cm whip and my Beofang handie is great when camping at rallys. may try my FT891 & ATAS120a some time soon G6NLZ S-E England

    I have one but I don't get to ride much due to my health. I wish I could ride a lot. I love getting on a bike and just heading off with no destination in mind but to just pick a direction and head out. I have no ham or CB equipment on my bike. I have an MP3 player but I really need to sell the bike because the lack of use it gets. It is a 2009 and this picture shows the miles that are on it.

    It is a beautiful bike. I just keep hoping I get well enough to ride it. I put 45 miles on it last year.

    OK, nobody laugh, a lot of really nice bikes shown in this thread. Mine is a bit conservative, a Honda 350-Four. Kinda rare bike especially in original mint condition. I purchased it new in 1970 and it was only manufactured for 3 years before they went to the larger 550 4 cylinder version. It was produced because of the complaints of the very popular CB 350 2 cylinder having no power with 2 riders and to much vibration. It has about the same performance as the standard 350 but you would never notice the addition of a rider and it is smooth as silk, no vibrations at all.
    I live in the Pocono's and ride it a couple of times a week from spring to fall, the Pocono's are a great place to ride!
