I currently ride a 1989 Yamaha FJ1200 with 34,000 miles on it. Pretty much all stock other than the Kerker slip on cans that came with it.



Also a Z50, a few Metropolitans and a Ruckus.



Recently (2010) sold the 1982 Honda GL500 I rode for a couple years, great bike.



Also had a 919 I bought new, then did "a few" things too.



There is a 1975 Honda CB750 buried in the garage, used for occasional fun at the drag strip



Using the way back machine, there is a 1980 GS1100E



Had quite a few other motorcycles, the first street bike being a orange 1972 Kawasaki H1B.

Next, I'm not sure.

All doors are open.

What about you?

Have a '92 FXRS Lowrider that was bought new......still enjoy riding it.
Another H-D project bike.....on the road soon....?
A '90 350 Honda 4Trax......bought new, and again, still enjoy riding it.........lots of quad activity here.....only a few minutes to the forest lands.
Have not owned a lot of motorcycles.....tend to keep things awhile.
Do like the dual purpose 'sporty' in an earlier post.....also your Honda drag strip bike.......nice!

Good solid machines you have there. One of my friends is a die hard Harley machinist/mechanic, old school style. Stopped in at his shop last week, he had several iron head Sportsters in for total rebuilds and a mix of everything else.

Quads rock, I've installed several HRC kits in the Honda TRX450's. The dealership I'm working for sells all of the major brands so I'm trying to learn something about them all.

We just took a Artic Cat 1000cc quad in on trade, a beast of a machine. The Cam-Am Renegade 800 seemed to have more power, insane machines IMO, making them about right!

Seriously, putting a 800cc Rotax VTwin in a quad, that's crazy!

I guess if you are going to pay $10,000.00 (or more, a lot more) for a ATV, you're going to want some guts to it.

That Honda of yours will probably still be running with those Can-Ams are long gone.

Fun stuff!

Mostly domestic for this guy.

2010 Ultra Classic (wifes chariot)


2003 Fatboy (my fave of the bunch)



1960 Panhead project. (some day it will be on the road)


1999 Kaw Comcours (now naked)


2001 Custom Trike (1981 Gold Wing/1990 Ford Festiva)


I'm thinking of getting a dual sport/enduro so I will probably have another Asian bike. The trike is going up on the auction block and the Connie may go this season also.

One of these days I'm going to sneak into your garage and wash that B-King
Probably drop off the GS450 I got sittin under the carport while I'm there. I wonder if I could get the thing in the trunk of the Ultra.
