Current ride - HD VROD. Over 100K miles in last 10 years. Just returned from the Devils Hwy in AZ, old US 666, talk about CRISP, how about 4 hail storms that day. My face was so cold I looked like Palosi (but not that ugly).

Was curious about how many motorcylists we have in our group.

I ride a Vespa GT200 & my husband rides a Honda Enduro. I like the control I have by myself & he likes to do wheelies whenever he wants! (farmboy tricks). My sister & I rode out to our other sister's house in Grand Rapids, MI this summer & put on 400 miles. Had a blast. I think we're having our mid-life crisis's! We probably will get a comfy Gold Wing when I want to let him have the wheel. Love it, & hope to live through it! (Our son is going to the bone dr. next week due to a crash on his cycle, so it's a little too real right now!)

I'm just breaking in a 2010 Triumph Bonneville T100 -- the fuel injection got me back to two wheel commuting for work

Started on dirt bikes about 30 years ago....have had two street bikes; first an '81 Goldwing that I got in 2000, fixed it all up, and really liked. Sold it and bought a new Kawi KLR650 Dualsport bike in 2003. Have done a few mods to it for adventure touring, but have not ridden it down to Honduras and back like another WV guy I met who rode his from Moorefield WV to South America and back. He hooked up with the Moonride guys (who went from LA to Tierra del Fuego and back, then from Capetown to Cairo and back).

I like the big enduro, but want to get a second bike that's better for the street. The KLR is a bit small. I'm a Kawi guy and am looking hard at the new Concours 14. Basically a ZX-14 converted to shaft drive, a bigger fairing, more upright seating, and cams changed for more torque and lower peak horsepower. It's still 156hp, so it should move out OK

I've never ridden a Bimmer sport tourer myself, but I know some guys who have them and really like them. That group of guys rode a Connie 14 at my local dealer and said it was spectacular. So I'm taking that on good authority. Works for me anyway. Plus, I even like the color

I did find a Harley Night Rod at a nearby dealer that I REALLY like a lot! My problem is that I'm like Jay Leno in that I like all the different kinds of bikes. Unlike Jay Leno, I don't have the fundage to acquire them all. They always build at least two of everything; one for the museum and one for Jay Leno!

Been riding since '63. I've owned a 1949 Indian Chief, a 1963 Triumph 650 Bonnieville, a 1965 BSA 441 Victor, a couple of Hondas, one Yanaha, and am currently on my 5th Harley, a 1995 Heritage Softail. Both my grandfather and father were Harley riders; so I guess it's in my blood.

Riding since 1975 ... current ride is a 1985 Honda Nighthawk, w/ plate
"Ratbyk".... When i cannot comfortably ride my bicycle to work (rain, usually) I ride the rat bike since gearing up on the scooter is easier than staying cool and dry on the bicycle.. Rattle can paint job...

Hi, I have been riding Honda's forever, almost. (1.) Honda C110 (2.) Honda 305 Dream (3.) Honda 305 Super Hawk (4.) Honda XL 175 (5.) Honda 400 Four (6.) Honda Goldwing (7.) Aprilia Mojito Custom 150. I still have the Aprilia.

Just to give you an idea of how long I have been riding bikes, I got a ticket while riding my brother's motorbike before I was old enough to get a learner's permit. "Now I'm older than the hills and twice as dusty."
