THAT is a beautiful bike.
you should have seen it in person, spotless. The picture doesn't do it justice and man that thing sounded sweet.

Was staying at a cabin in Winthrop this last weekend and on Saturday I seen a silver bird with hard corbin bags. Rider was wearing high viz helmet

I rode the back roads from Gulfport, MS to Montgomery, AL to have lunch with my daughter at a Thai restaruant and after lunch we decided to hit up a Starbucks before we both get back on the road to go our separate ways again. Anyhow, I was headed east on Hwy 85 approaching exit 3, I look over to the other side of the highway and notice a silver Blackbird going the opposite direction. The guy was solo, wearing no gear except for a helmet. Dude, if you saw another rider wearing ATGATT, that was me.
I was battling traffic in the heat and of course I could not net a photo. So instead here is a photo of mine that my kiddo took of my ride today:
Loved running the roads north of Gulfport, Gula and Ocean springs when I was stationed in Gula.
