Just curious. I have a '96 CBR600. I rode more pavement this Summer than I have in years.

Yes. I still love my 77' KZ1000. and I've had her for over 25 years. I've had others, but I will never sell this one.

I had a custom HD pro street for a few years. I spent more time polishing the dam thing than I did riding it. I sold it to a guy in Wisconsin.

1984 Yamaha RZ-350, I don't ride it much but take it out when I get that nostalgic two stroke feeling.

Always lusted for a 916 Ducati. Finally found me a low mile, lightly crashed 97 model back in 99. Repaired it and only put a few hundred miles on it. Had it almost two years and just never had a real skippy feeling out on the road with it. Too many blue haired people around here for my comfort zone. And for some reason, I always wanted to go fast....... Still, one of the most gorgeous motorcycles ever. The wife still has a miniature version pocket racer in the dining room!

Nope - I'm too loose....and I just don't trust the amount of hopeless drivers there are around. My dad got cleaned up at a set of traffic lights, lined up behind cars. Some clown wasn't paying attention and BANG. Luckily for him he wasn't ready for it either and got thrown over the cars in front of him, landing on the bonnet of the next car. No real injuries. But yeah, one muppet in a car and you're dead.

I've ridden the Ducati 848 at a test day and loved it....the problem is they are so quick and so easy to ride - sliding them around in and out of corners. I just cant have fun unless I'm pushing the limits. Which is another reason I don't own one. I'd be a pile of bones on the side of the road or in jail.

1997 VTR 1000 F.

I did road race an RZ350 a few time in the mid 80's. Went back to MX, couldn't afford the tyres after every ride at the time.

I just sold my wideglide and my wifes 1200 sportster because of
all the near misses we had with people on cell phones.Don't text and drive.

Used to do trackdays on an R6 with my kid on a Ninja 250. Gave it up a year ago, but it's the only thing I ever did that surpassed MX. Did it for a year and a half, and only rode once a month when trackday rolled around. Couldn't handle riding more than that anyway becauase of back trouble, then just got too bad to ride at all. Man, I miss that more than anything. Street riding never appealed to me though. At trackdays, I started out a TOTAL spode, getting in everyone's way in the C class, then my last ride actually got up to A group speed. My grandest achievement.

I have a '07 Suzuki Gladius, seriously the most comfortable sport bike out there. Sits exactly like a dirtbike and has more than enough power to get on it (especially with the yosh pipe).

I got a 85 vfr500. Just a few hundred miles over 20k



It's about to be repainted with original colors. The tank has some messed up clear-coat from the previous owner not cleaning the tank off after re-fueling.

I've got a Honda VTR1000 SP1 along with a 1999 Aprilia RS250.

Haven't ridden either much since my daughter was born 18 months ago, any spare time I have is for moto or mountain biking.

I have a 2009 KLX250sf, the bike is a blast to ride, but I am debating selling it, this past summer I ran over a dog, and squirrel, the dog made the worst noise I have ever heard in my life, thankfully I didn't go down.
