    Although I don't have any photographic evidence of it, I once took the K5 cb750 apple picking with the wife. because my wife likes to make apple pies and I like to eat apple pies we got a little overzealous. we had two backpacks and both saddlebags stuffed with apples of all sorts (and one pumpkin I think). I had to wear my backpack on my chest and rest it on the tank because I think it had something like 40 lbs of apples in it. at one point on the way home I took one of the apples out of the bag and started eating it while riding (I was wearing a davida jet helmet), people were looking at me really funny. Also we couldn't close the saddle bags with all the apples in so I had to use two mesh seat straps to hold them all in - but you could see the apples clearly if you were in the car next to us. At one point in traffic a little kid trued to reach out from the back seat of his parents car to grab an apple.

    Anyway, we rode 90 miles from CT to NYC on highways looking like we picked the orchard clean and the bike having an inch of suspension travel from being overloaded.

    I completely forgot the best part of the story.....

    On the way up (without the apples) we stopped for gas and there were two guys in full gear on ST1300s. One of them sees us pull in and comes over to talk. For some reason, the guy was floored that we rode a 1975 bike from NYC to CT....like I had just crossed the gobi desert on a razor scooter. He asked me if I was afraid of it breaking down and asked him about the same about his st1300 - he got real defensive about that. if only he could have seen us on the way back.

    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.
