Just one. 2008 CBR 600rr Pearl Orange. No performance mods. Just comfort and visual mods.

Not since May 18 2006 and a choice between a head on at 60 with a service van or the ditch...I took the ditch, I survived the bike and my riding privileges didn't.

Re: Who else rides 2 wheels?

^^What do you mean your riding privileges didn't?

I technically totaled my bike pictured above right after I bought it new. Low sided at around 60. Didn't want to go through selling so I just fixed her back up. Runs as nice as the day I rode her off the lot at 0 miles 19k miles later.

Wife told me it wasn't getting replaced, so I wasn't riding anymore we were 3 months away from our first son being born so I didn't argue...I wanted the opportunity to practice making a second one...I do from time to time miss riding but with a 200 mile round trip daily commute I wouldn't have had much time to ride anyway.

Re: Who else rides 2 wheels?

I used to. I used to have a Honda CBX1100.

I used to love riding, but I moved from Phoenix to Sacramento, moved away from my friends who I used to ride with, and then... I bought a new car - A Mustang Cobra - and never ever rode the bike again. I sold it six months later and never rode again. Strangest thing.

I can understand that. My friend that I used to ride with totaled his bike. He isn't in good financial standing at all so he stopped making payments on the bike and lost it. We used to ride almost everyday (when I was single lol) but after that, it took a while to find a new group of people to ride with.

Re: Who else rides 2 wheels?

I so miss it. Rode 20yrs. I've lost friends and others hurt but after one particular friend suffered a major TBI 3yrs ago only going 35mph in morning traffic after a woman texting and driving came over on him and then I was personally involved in his recovery for a while I had to second guess my own mortality and my responsibility to my wife and children. So I got out of it last year.

That being said here's just a few I've had in the last few years.......

2008 ZX14




2006 GSXR 1000



2006 FJR1300AE. This bike while it wasn't the most fun, the quickest or the fastest, out of all the bikes I've owned it was the best all around bike I've ever ridden. It fills the void between sport and cruiser. Spent many 6-700 mile days on this thing. Had the comfort of a cruiser but you can still get down in the twisties.




There's been many more but those were the last three I had.

Re: Who else rides 2 wheels?

1991 HD FLSTF (Fat Boy). Basically it was my pops and since he has more than one he saw the value in me sinking some money into her to get her to my liking (plus make it a little more road worthy).

The only stock items on the bike are:

Frame
Brakes
Belt
Chain
Tank and fender size

Everything else is custom. And yea, she moves.

Up until this spring we rode Goldwings have had 4 - 83, 92, 06. My wife wss having trouble getting on and off so we traded it on the Summit. Since 07 we have been down to only 1 bike prior to the I always hsd a smaller bike to run around on. Started in1958 anf have had one almost continually. Do I miss the bikes yes and no. All the years of riding only 1 accident so I feel very lucky, always used proper riding gear.
