June 2015 Bike of the Month
« on: June 28, 2015, 03:22:37 PM »
This months winner has had his bike since new and it shows, it really is a beautiful example of a first gen Honda V4. I've seen it in person, and its just perfect.

It would have won a long time ago if the owner had posted a few pics in the Photo Gallery, but alas, he's never gotten around to it.

It took a friend to realize it was never going to happen and take the in initiative and post a few pics in the Gallery.

So congratulations Danny (Sabredweezel)your V65 Sabre in June 2015's Bike of the Month.



Danny of course has never posted on the Board, its not his thing, which I respect. So we won't be bugging him about not replying. But maybe we can get him to find away to get some more pics of his Sabre into the Gallery section so guys here will know just how good a Sabre can look. And while he's at it some pics of his RC51 also.  :lol8:

Congratulations Danny!

I've seen this beautiful lady totally undressed and she's quite the looker. Now she not only is a looker, she has about the only performance mods you can do without dropping a year's salary. Danny has taken excellent care of his sabre as he does with all his bikes. This is the only sabre that I won't park mine next to.

Folks,

I have to express my appreciation for this stunning Sabre. It is very worthy of Michael's award.

I wish that I could see it in person.

seen it and ridden behind it.

but folks, the pictures just don't do this Sabre justice.....  really they don't.

Danny is awesome, and his ability to maintain and ride bikes just truly has to be witnessed, to be fully understood. 

So with full respect and honor
    Danny you've earned it. 




I just hope I can replicate it at my fun state in life.  Good for ya Danny :beer:

(I know, I'm late to the party, as usual  :???:)
I couldn't find one from this year, but here's the man, last year at the SGT (sorry, I didn't get a pic of the Sabre).


Congrats, Danny - an honor well deserved!!

As a fellow sabre owner, we take advantage of our moments when someone actually offers take our picture.

Here's another "old Danny" picture. He said he's lost over 100 pounds, its the best performance mod for his bikes.

I remember when he was the "larger" Danny, He's done so good losing weight & getting healthy. I do think he needs to grow the beard back  :thumb

Nicely done!  My first V4 was an 82 V45 Sabre.  Unlike Danny, my bikes can collect dirt and crap sitting unused in a large sealed container.  I'm not sure how it happens but it does.  I swear my new 15 Ducati collected dirt between leaving the showroom after paying for it and loading it on the trailer for the longish trip down the interstate (200 mi.) to home.  :dunno:   Way to go Danny.
