    Usually motor heads are into more than one hobby :)



    If you are into two wheels show us what you got! Are you into Dirt? Street? ADV? Cruiser? Post 'em.



    I got my Triumph in June and have begun the (slow) process of Intake / Exhaust mods

    I'm getting anxious to put my Foamy airbrushing skills to use over the winter and paint something on it!

    I love motorcycles...... learned to ride on a 1987 Honda GoldWing that was my father in laws. From there bought my first bike which was a Honda CBR600F3, sold it for a Suzuki 800cc Intruder Volusia cruiser. Got tired of that and moved back to a sportbike with a Yamaha YZF600R. Wanted something newer so I sold the 600R and bought a 2006 Yamaha R6 Raven. Loved the R6, did a track day at Mid-Ohio with it, which was awesome!!! Sold it though to fund a new airplane. Now thinking about getting back into bikes. Looking at the 2013 Honda CB500X.

  4. I have ridden all my life. Started in MX at 7, and got my first street bike at 17 a Suzuki GS-550ES. I have owned 100's of street and dirt bikes through the years. Both of my boys had MX bikes and later street bikes. I currently only own a 50cc scooter that is lame but fun to ride around the neighborhood. My youngest boy still lives at home and he has a Ninja 250 (EX250) I ride that thing more than he does. It is very well balanced and is a blast to ride around town.

  5. Here's a couple of mine. Theses are hobbies to get away from hobbies!! The one with the white fairing my father purchased new in 1977. I have owned it for almost 30 yrs and When I go I suspect Kevin and my son in law will get to arm wrestle over it. I think Kevin will win!!



    The other I purchased this spring, it a 2014 BMW R1200RT. Unfortunately BMW had a recall on the bike for the rear shock. The manufacturer of the shocks ( Belgium ) had a failure so BMW issued a stop ride order until they could get us all replacement shocks ( the shock is an electronically adjustable ) Its been almost two months and we just got word starting next week they will have the replacements. can't wait!!! I put 1200 miles on it before the stop ride order and it by far the best bike I have ever owned!!

    Nice bikes Al!



    After I win the lottery one of the bikes on the top of my list is the BMW R1200GSA. I've read stories about parts and service being expensive on the BMWs though.
