Back after 15 years
« on: May 20, 2021, 10:15:37 AM »
In 1999, I bought a shiny new 1500 Drifter. I road it for several years, then foolishly sold it. I had never been without a bike in the 50+ years before I sold the Drifter. Now, it's 2021, I'm 71 and the itch simply got to be too much. I just bought a shiny, but not new, 1999 1500 Drifter with 9500km on it.
It was a raffle bike at the 1999 Toronto Ontario motorcycle show, so has been custom painted, after market exhausted and single seated.

It's good to be back among Drifter owners.

Good for you and welcome!

I see you're in Ottawa...a lot of great roads around those parts.

Happy riding and post a pic.

Tks, TJ. I have a bit of wrenching to do on it, but so far, she seems to be fine on the road.
