Any Riders Out There?

Nobody buys a Benz just because they need transportation to get to work. We all bought them because we're into toys - so I figure there ought to be a bunch of riders in the mix. Right now I have an '88 Honda Shadow 1100 and a 2001 Harley FXSTI (softail standard). I'm past my test pilot days but I've had a ZX-11 and a bunch of other psychotic bikes in the past too.

What are you guys riding?

Me too. I got the Ness slam kit for my FXSTI. Seat height is rediculously low now. Lower than a 250 Rebel.

2003 Suzuki SV650S. My ride to work, my wife takes the wagon. I leave the house 10 minutes after her and get to work at the same time as her. We work within 1 block of each other.

Shown with Ventura Bike-Pack System. Great for chinese take-out pickups.

I bet! I have family in Manchester and my brother in law bought a brand new Virago about 6-7 years ago. When he sold it 5 years later it had 2500 miles on it. Too cold up there for my thin blood. I knew that the first time I saw frost heaves in the road!
