Did you try the Malibu Maxx?04crewvt wrote:Malibu is too small...
04crewvt wrote:Yea for a car I was looking on line and there is a 2000 Chevy Impala for $3988 listed locally estimated 20-32MPG I can drive them but it's not fun. Problem is most of my hight and size issues are upper body. I am tall in the torso and wear a 62 suit coat so shoulder room and head room are the big issues. With most cars the steep slant of the windshield means I am looking through the top 3 inches or so and fell like I have to be half a block back to see a traffic light. With that price I could have a monthly payment that equals a weeks gas in the crew. If it actually got 32MPG highway it could save me as much as $50/month.

Been searching the classifieds today ,I really need a vehicle with a payment plus gas mileage of less than $300/month for another vehicle to make sense.
I know exactly what that bike is. It's a kick ass Honda V4. I have an 83 V65 Magna. Nice bike HenryJ High temp near 60 on Sunday. Just might go for a cruise.HenryJ wrote:Well with rumors of gas going as high as $3 a gallon for daily driven vehicles this year, I dusted off the bike.
I didn't realize how long it has been since I have had it out. (almost five years) . Still under 10k miles not bad for a 20 year old bike.
This is the first vehicle that I ever bought new. It was a "hold over" 1984. I bought it in early 1985 for $2800 and traded in my Honda CB 550 twin. I think new price was around $3600.
Honda's V65 Sabre was the fastest production bike when it came out. It has a 1100cc 121 hp V-4, 0-50 in 2.31 seconds and does the quartermile running in the mid 10's. It is a rush to ride.
If I remember correctly it got around 36 mpg, city and a best of 50 mpg highway. Exactly what is needed with these gas prices.
Thank you. It is snowing hard here. I am "dun till spring".YellowCrewCabber wrote:... It's a kick ass Honda V4. ...Nice bike HenryJ
Looks like a CC mod to me.HenryJ wrote:...........This is light enough to carry on the hitch. That is my plan. It should make a nice addition and make exploring around camp pretty fun. Not a bad back up plan either..................
I waited almost 24 hours before the mods began.HenryJ wrote: I'll probably add a set of soft bags that I have had for years , a mount for my GPS and maybe some driving lights.

You can't! I trust you have had a thumper before. Commutes to work would be my limit unless isolation technology has come light years since the 80s.HenryJ wrote:.........My wife just shakes her head. "You haven't even rode it yet." How do you reply to that?
It has been a very long time. I rode a CB450 from Vancouver ,WA to Ontario, OR. That was a twin and may not vibrate quite as much. It was still a "thumper" in that it was not exactly a comfortable ride. I hear all sorts of talk about numbness from the vibes. hopefully I will have quenched some of it.f9k9 wrote:I trust you have had a thumper before.

I like it. Around town and on the commute I seem to be getting about 60 mpg.JaVeRo wrote:Brule,
