any motorCYCLE owners out there?

new thread!
Pilots, Bicycles, skiers....

Anybody out there owns a bike? What kind?
Where do you ride? Ever go on a track?
Isn't bike an addiction just like the 911???

I have 2 bikes personally. 1999 Ducati 748 (which I take to a track - Watkins Glenn) and 1994 Yamaha Virago (which I ride with my wife). But most of the time it's my Ducati that gets all of the road bugs splashed on...

72 Triumph TR6-R Tiger 650 Euro model. I've owned it for 16 years and it still looks and runs like new. Don't get out on it much these days....work....kids....wife....P-car....you get the idea.

1985 Honda 750 Interceptor. Parked in the garage, couldn't justify paying $600 a year in insurance and only driving it 3 times ($200 a shot).

Right now the p-car is taking over, and that's OK.

I've got a cherry '93 Suzuki GSX-R 750.
She ain't no damn Ducati but she's pretty fast.
Losts of work done to her. Custom paint, polished frame, powdercoated rims, carbon fibre exhaust and fender, plus all of the normal mods.
Only has 6000 miles on it and has never been dropped.

I have a '95 Gpz 1100. It's no beauty but it goes like a bat out of hell, lots of low end torque.

79 Yahmaha 650 Special for that old British "Thump, Thump." Feels and looks vintage, but doesn't leak oil and starts on que every time. Also a 79 Suzuki 750 for revs and incredible acceleration (considering its age,) that I've had for over 15 years. They don't take up much space in the garage and offer unique motoring experiences for low bucks.

How about a 1965 Norton 750 G15CS. It's the only one on the block.

'93 Kaw. Concours (ZG1000)
'78 Honda CB750K4

Don't ride the Kaw much lately (back problems + hunched over riding position = pain), and the CB's in pieces pending a carb rebuild.

Thinking to trade in for a slow, porky cruiser.

Might as well ask you guys your opinion(s):

Roadstar or Vulcan 1500 Classic FI?

I thought about a Valkyrie (keeping a stable of F6s would be cool) but I don't have enough legroom on them.

Had motorcycles since I was 15, Suzuki's, Yamaha's (two stroke road bikes, no emmission laws in NZ) and for the last five years a CBR900RR.

I love riding, many people who have not riden a large road bike would have no comprehension of their performance. Porsches I am afraid pale in comparison.

Ride smart and survive!!

cheers

BMW R75/7 here.. highly modified tho, have owned it for 12 years, it is great therapy on a sunny day!!! Been riding bikes since 1968 mostly in Europe, raced back in the early 70's mainy Manx's and a Two stroke Greeves Silverstone also (instant sieze up machine!!!)graduated to a Yamaha TZ then quit while I was ahead!!
smiles for miles the bike is almost as much fun as my 930!!!
Love the Yellow Duck M325 I had a 900SS (red) for a while was a fun ride but killed my back and wrists after 100 miles!!! guess Father time finally got to me!!!!!

This is my '96 VFR750. The 911 lets me get my speed fix and take my family along, so I don't get to ride too much anymore. It's for sale (reluctantly). Every time I get on it, though, I change my mind about selling it.

Bobster,

Wish that I had never sold my R75 "toaster tank"... ride a R1100RS now. When I want to go faster than the bike, I get in a jet...

Heres a list of the past bikes in my life:

Lots of Rice grinders
Huskvarna 450 single
Triumph 441 "thumper"
R50/5
R75/5
R100S
R100RS
R1100RS (first year model)


Want a R75 or so with a hack... always liked Ducati's or Guzzi's as well... or a Bultaco 250 road race version.
