    I ride, but I'm between bikes right now. My last bike was a Suzuki GSXR 750. It was going to cost too much to get it back in decent condition compared to what it was worth.
  • I ride, I have a 01 Honda CBR 600 F4i. I purchased it back in November and have already put about 3k miles on it. But now I'll be riding a lot more now that it is warming up here in South Carolina.

    1988 FJ1200 Yamaha - the finest motorcycle ever from the Land Of The Rising Sun.... or anywhere else for that matter. Had it 15 years and still stomps everything that's gone before and everything on the road today. Wanna try? Will easily outlive me, and my son can take her on one day. I'll be watching from afar that he takes care of her.

    My 2008 HD Sportster XL 1200 it's still with me, a bit more grumpy as she ages, just as the owner \m/

    It's a beauty, isn't it?  But lately I'm thinking about downgrading a bit, maybe go for a midsize Jap custom for the 70 Km daily commute.

    I completely forgot to mention, I ride a 2006 Honda VT750 Shadow in black. I have modified it a bit with a full Cobra slash cut exhaust system, highway bars and front and rear floor boards. looking to raise the bars around 25 cm and get a mustang single rider seat.
    I've only had the bike 3 months, I haven't been able to ride since due to a quite severe motorcycle accident a couple of years ago. Nice looking bike and runs well on the open road, sounds real nice too. I may upgrade to a lager cruiser in a year or so though this is a great bike for now.
    @Wulfensteinsson nice bike. How high are those bars? Do you have many issues with slow speed maneuvering or do you get used to it? Im still deciding on how high I want to go 
  • My Father was an insurance broker and when ever anyone came in to insure a bike he gave them two forms to fill out. One for bike insurance and one for life insurance. 

    I still became a biker (ok with a small "B"). BSA Bantam, BSA C15, Triumph Tri Star and my last bike and the most unreliable piece of ..... a Benelli. Last time I rode was 13 years ago. I don't think I could lift my leg over the saddle now.

    Love that Sportster.

    Hated to part with the true pavement bikes but just to many idiots that can't handle the fifth wheel in their hand on the road. Also shop space is at a premium.

    @Aamon My
    ape hanger is 16" (40 cm), given my size it lets my arms in a 90 degrees angle
    with my body, very comfortable for medium distances trips (100/150 km
    tops).

    Actually It maneuvers quite well in slow speeds and with
    foot on ground with the extra leverage to work torsion in the fork, the
    only drawback is that if I want it to move front only or backwards I
    have to push a bit with my pelvis on the seat/gas tank but it' s quite easy , maybe if the bars were higher it won't be near as comfortable.
