two bikes in a hangar

I maintain the keycard system at a flying club. Join the club, learn to fly, get a keycard, schedule a plane online, show up, go flying whenever/wherever you want. Pretty neat operation.
The two mechanics ride a mid '90's M900 and an '01 750 Shadow.

Not nearly as much as it should as it's the club owner's bike. He's always too busy fixing planes & running the place with his wife. Anthough, I've been given total access to it so I have a hunch it will get some exercise this Summer. Maybe I'll even ride it to the bbq.

I put 100 miles onthe MOnster today, turning it past 5k, even got rained on. Stayed mostly dry thanks to my M2R Rally jacket with the waterproof membrane and the Gaerne boots I got from Jet last yr (thanks dood).
This Duc is a '95. It's an okay bike. It has teriffic brakes. The 919 has it all over this thing though - the Honda is more comfortable, has way more power, is smoother, and has a better cluster. The sound of the duc became annoying halfway through the ride, but I was getting more used to it towards the end. My 919 with the low slung single Yosh really sounds great.
A few sunny days coming up. I'll take it out again & beat it through the turns a bit more.
