hmmmm, riding may not be the right term but I have about 3/4 of a an '81 Harley FXE in my garage that I have been collecting parts for. Kinda like the Johnny Cash song I have been adding one part at a time for years... My wife loves to give me crap about it and suggests I go sit on the rolling chassis in the garage and "make Vroom, vroom noises." I'm not sure what I'll do if I ever finish it...

'92 Nighthawk 750. Over 60k miles. No riding now, too cold and there's gravel and sand all over the roads until spring here.

I loved those bikes. I ended up buying a 2005 919, though. Apparently I had money at the time. You can kinda see it in this pic of my stove:

I've been enjoying the dual sports the last couple of years. I like getting off the beaten path, far from the watchful eye of the man. I have a KLX250 with knobs, & a DR650 with street tires. I like to tour, I've been as far NE as Meat Cove Nova Scotia & as far SW as the Grand Canyon. I rode the DR to Maine this year, trucked the KLX to the UP of Michigan, rode around for 4 days...

Bikes I've owned in the past- 74' CB200,93' FZR600, 78' GS1000, 85' XR600R, 01' FZ1, 99' KLR650.

so who all here rides motorcycles and what do you have? I've got an 87 CBR600F.

I really hate working on my own bike these days, but at the same time I wont trust my cycle to ANYONE but me. and I do mean that too.
I had one of these back in the day



then one of these (a friend wrecked the other one and bought me this one)



Bikeless now, but hopefully not forever!
