Two Wheelers Among Us...

It's my favorite time of year to ride. Crisp morning air, predictable weather (for the most part), and beautiful scenery changes.

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

Hi Kevin,

I'm a rider - I used to have a Vespa, and quickly found that I much preferred motorcycles. Now I've got a Ninja (so does my husband). So when the weather looks good for the weekend, I'll follow the Airstream on the bike, enjoying the scenery from a different angle.

You mention crisp morning air - it's a bit too crisp for me lately - I much prefer the crisp afternoon air up here in Canada. ;-)

Another rider

The main reason we got a trailer rather than a M/H is the ability to have an enclosed vehicle AND haul a bike... in our case a V-rod.
Q- What do Harleys and hound dogs have inn common?
A- They both like to ride in the back of pickup trucks!

the wheels go randomly round and round...

many threads on this topic..

including LONG ones with photos and essays...

and even a thread on the riveted mutant wonder...

there are others too and many posts arguing the 'safety issue'...

MOST of the '2 wheel' threads are about pedalin'...

all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

Currently have a Honda VFR 800 Interceptor. This is perfect riding weather--in fact, planning on going out this afternoon.

I haven't owned a motorcycle for over 30 years, my last one was a '38 Indian 4 cylinder that I bought as a basket case for $25 and restored over a period of about 10 years, prior to that a couple of BMW's, a Norton and a Jawa.

I've kept my motorcycle drivers license, just in case......

Nowadays I often ride a bicycle to work, just resumed after a taking a
summer break a couple of days ago. Air hasn't been crisp down here in Southern Arizona for many moons, but at least it's dropped below 70 here on a couple of mornings.
