I had a Yamaha FZ6. Sold it for what I bought it for 2yrs after the fact. Now I'm saving up to buy a Harley!

I ride a Harley Wide-Glide and my wife rides a Harley Fatboy. She made the mistake of making a comment about my bike once and I told her to get her own...and she did!

Obviously I don't have it overseas with me right now, but this past sumer we did 6 days and 2500 miles on the bikes, hit SD, WY, ID, WA, OR and MT and a bunch of national parks.

I was punted and almost lost a leg, almost 3 yrs ago. That's how I got my X! Take the good with the bad, I guess. It was a 1983 Honda Nighthawk 550SC and minty fresh. She flipped twice and is no more.

Wow, Sliprobb. I guess that is why they say that there are only two types of motorcycle riders, those that have crashed and those that will!

Anyone who thinks there are only four "brands" of bikes, needs to go back to the poll and change the answer to "Nope".

edit, that came off as rude, I meant it funny, ride safe.


Cheers,

First bike was a HD Sporty 1200XL, few custom bits: Arlen Ness bars/mirrors, forward controls, solo seat, smoked signal lights

Last one was a heavily modified 1979 Honda CB750 cafe-racer style: Home-made seat, front end swap from an 82 Nighthhawk, wheels swapped for aluminum mags, carbs from a 83 VFR, 4-1 Kerker header, frame supports chopped and rewelded, Ninja 500R rearsets and pegs on custom brackets, custom made clip-ons, no turn signals and custom plate/tag mount. Sold it before I moved out here to Washington, looking for a new one now .

My first legal bike was a SV650S had that for 5 years. Sold that and bought my Harley Street Bob in 07. Had that till June when I was hit. Bike was a total loss and I am recovering still. Shattered my left foot, broken right foot and ankle, and a fractured wrist.
I would love to ride again but the wife is putting a stop to that for a while. Hence how I ended up with my X. Needed something better on gas then my truck since I used the bike as a mode of transportation instead of a weekend rider. I am still gonna ride my Rm250 in the woods and I have a old 78 Yamaha TT500 I need to restore.

I miss my Honda CBR600F but no whining, I would have gotten either killed or ticketed if I was still racing.
