Don't sweat it, pal. When I try to get pics to show up here, I can't even get a hockey puck with a minus sign. You're doing better than I can. Groove on.

Eagle, try to host the images on a different site. the "hockey puck" error is because the public doesn't have access to the image on the hosted site.

Oh, my, my! As I suspected, that is exactly the same model and color bike I bought in West Texas a decade ago. Named her Little Wing, and of all seven bikes I owned during that time, the only bike I liked better was the 05 Kaw zzr1200. Hold onto that beauty. I'm blown away. I loved Little Wing, never should have traded her in. Ride safe....oooooh, Dallas traffic will keep you busy, I know that well. Groove on!

I have ridden through and then back through Dallas on two occasions, both were trips taken from Wink (Odessa/Midland---West Texas) heading to and back home from the Dragon (North Carolina) for Katana Rider rallies back in 2009 and 2010. And between home and the Dragon, the only scary moments were those getting me through Dallas. But I learned.

First time, was on a Friday night in July riding with CenCalCat, a cool one from Los Banos, California. We went through on I-30 around 11 pm---not a good time to be on the road in Dallas. We made it, but there were several fast moments when we had our doubts.

I learned to come back through around 5 in the morning, and I had the highways to myself. The next summer I was on my own and went through on a Friday around supper time. That was after rush hour, and before everyone was good and drunk. Much better.

Then coming back through, I realized it was Friday night, that Dallas was an hour ahead of me, and it would be midnight. Not the best of times. So I stopped and slept on a picnic table at a roadside park near Mount Pleasant, then woke up with the sun, and got through Dallas before 6 that morning. No problem.

I bet that you have far more savvy than a West Texas high school English teacher would have had. But now I'm simply a guitar playing hippie who plays and sings in bars here in Colorado at least once a week and sometimes more. I don't ride anymore because of the dangers of random pot holes, tourists gawking at the mountains and not watching the road, and the wildlife. There are some animals here that you can hit that will come back and devour you.

I am glad to know that a bike exactly like my Little Wing (also the name Jimi Hendrix gave his white Fender Stratocaster) is running and grooving. It is a classic. You ride safely now! You wear gear all the time, right?

I have the same exact bike! Maybe not exactly.. yours is a lot prettier than mine.
Bought it in Fort worth in August 2017 for $2500 had 8600 miles on it. Died on the way back to Frisco from For Worth.. didn't get it running properly until mid September. It's at 11,000+ miles now. It's my daily. Only time I don't ride it is in the rain because I don't have to gear for it, hah!
Its my first bike and only bike.
