What do you ride ? 2008 Harley-Davidson Dyna Street Bob

How long have you been riding ? Since I was 10 and got a Yamaha 50cc for Xmas

How many have you owned ? Personally, just this one. Total bikes I have had that technically my dad has owned: 6

Most memorable moment/event on your bike ? Went down last spring. That sucked. But most memorable was when my dad first let me take out his 88 Softail Springer. That bike was/is his favorite he ever had. The day he decided I was tall enough and strong enough to take it for a spin around the neighborhood, I will never forget.

What do you ride ? 2002 BMW K1200LT

How long have you been riding ? Got my first bike right after I turned 18 and I've been on a bike for almost 30 years.

How many have you owned ? I'm on # 8

Most memorable moment/event on your bike ? Another "went down" story involving an 18 wheeler slamming into us...and he won. But lots of happy memories since I have ridden all over the USA, Mexico, and parts of Canada.

MMW, how ya like her? Mine has 48K miles on it and still running strong. Only real break-down was a busted clutch cable. I had an oil sensor malfunction in the middle of a huge rain storm, but that really don't count, it was ummmm wet. HA!

Nice ride!, Is that one of those self contained portable bike garages?

BTW, I joined the Brewing Bikers!

Snafu: I love my bike. Nowhere near 48k on her but I just commute on her mostly. Broke my clutch cable about a year ago which made for a very exciting then very boring morning. Voltage regulator went bad in the first 500 miles but no worries getting it replaced. Gobs of power and torque...

What do you ride ? 1976 Honda GL1000 Goldwing

How long have you been riding ? 3 years

How many have you owned ? 2

Most memorable moment/event on your bike ? My first bike was a basket case 82 Maxim 400. It had bent valves and a broken cam chain. Did all the work myself. The first time I heard it roar to life and took her around the block was a GREAT moment!!

I've got a better pic somewhere.. not sure where though

I had a red 76 also with the Vetter fairing and bags a lot of people don't believe the bike didn't start out a touring bike but a 4 cyl cruiser. Hard to believe how the bike has changed.

What do you ride ? 1991 Honda VFR750F

How long have you been riding ? Since I was very young.

How many have you owned ? Several.

Most memorable moment/event on your bike ? Regulator/Recifier (rectumfryer) died twice on my VFR and left me stranded. I have since added a voltmeter to the cluster, and a PC fan now cools the R/R to keep it from failing. Aside from the common R/R problem, this is the best all-around bike out there. A little top-heavy, and the pegs are a little low if you're aggressive in the twisties, but I love it.

Yea, they have changed!!!

this one was actually my dad's for YEARS and he sold it to me when he bought his 08 GL1800. Put them next to each other and you would be amazed!
