Congrats Bill.  My very first V4 was an 82 VF750 S and it was one superb machine.  That was way back when I was immortal (and had not yet on several occasions spent time going down the road without benefit of the MC I left the house on).  I wore the ends down off a few sets of foot pegs on that one.  A friend had a big Sabre and I immediately wanted one after getting a turn riding it.  Very nice example.  :thumb :thumb Congrats again and Michael great pic for #12 of 2013.

So Michael and everyone/anyone else who may know....... with all these pics of great V4 bikes are we going to be able to get a V4BBS 2014 wall calendar?  If so I am in for 2.  Well?  I thought about using one of my old ones but the days of the week don't match up to the day of the month.  What to do, What to do?   :dunno: :dunno:  Hoping... :pope:

Hi Tom:

I have looked into it, and yes it is doable, but, and its a big but, I have been pretty much away since the end of August with the exception of a few weeks in Nov. for Thanksgiving, and we were mostly away then. Its just not something I can do while at sea with unreliable internet and 12 hour days. I did post a thread awhile back to guage interest and did ask if anyone would take this on but there was no real affirmative response, so I let it go.

I'm home again on the 20th of this month hopefully for awhile and will see what I can do. If it does happen it would have to be a limited amount as from my enquiries 50 calendars would run anywhere from $750-$1000 depending on the source. Cafe press has been mentioned as a possible source, but a check there revealed a calendar plus shipping would come to $27.48, and I'm not sure many here would want to pay that much. I am open to suggestions (again :) ) if anyone has a better idea on how to do this without breaking the bank.

Michael, I am not much of an artistic person but I will assist you anyway I can.  Give me a call when you get home.  I am off work from the 20th until 1/2/14 so I will have some time available.  Not much riding weather likely then, although a day skiing is not out of the question.

For a cheap calender, try Walmart. Only $12. Sale ends Jan 31, 2014. http://photos.walmart.com/walmart/storecalendars/calsizeid=0/calstyleid=14#top

Thanks again guys. Sabres don't usually get much respect.

She's had several turns lately to the SGT, it may be the magna's turn this year.

It seems like the picture has gotten lost or Kerry has started hacking sabre pictures again. ;D
