Default Any Motorcycle Riders Here?

I ride a '94 Harley Davidson FLSTN Heritage Softail Nostalgia. Lots of $$$ put into this bike. My dad bought it new in '94. He left it to me after he passed 3 years ago. It was bone stock then, but after about $7k of upgrades, it is now the way you see it below.

Any other 928 guys/gals riding? Post some pics!!!

'75 Suzuki GT 250
'74 Norton Commando 850 Interstate Mk IIA
'75 Honda 750 F1
'78 Yamaha 750
'75 Triumph Trident
'74 Yamaha RD 350 Daytona
'82 Laverda Jota 1000 Italian beauty
'85 Yamaha RZ350 (first racer)
'87 Honda HRC RS 250 GP racer
'88 Honda HRC RS 250 GP racer
'90 Honda CBR 900 Endurance racer
'93 Honda CBR 600 F3 Sprint racer
'87 Suzuki 750 Superbike........very scary racer
'75 Suzuki GT 750.....relive youth AKA kettle/water buffalo
'02 Malagutti 50 (sons first bike)
'03 Kawasaki KLR 650 farm bike

Merlin, NICE DUC !!!

Here are a few pics of our previous Blue Ridge Parkway Screamers, my VTR1000 SuperHawk and Jeannie's Hawk GT. Loved that V-Twin Torque, always reminded me of a 928.

I've ridden most of my life, worked my way up to a brand new 2002 Harley Road King then started selling and buying faster and faster bikes until I ended up with a Kawasaki ZZR 1200 and as I approached my 48th birthday I realized I was driving like a teenager again, trying to drag my knee at speeds that would get you arrested on any road except the autobahn...so I sold it and bought the 928. Now I drag my imagination around those same sweepers wrapped in steel and aluminum.

I miss the open air two wheel feeling but I think I'll live longer this way.

Started with British bikes in the 60's (BSA 441 Victor, Triumph Bonnie 650, Norton etc.) and have had some type of 2-wheel outlet since. I've had my current fair weather friend for going on 20 years.
It's a 1988 Sportster, well modified. A few years ago, my son and I decided to see if we could break the 100 horse barrier and after a year and a fair amount of $$ we managed to break 90 and decided that was it for now. It's well behaved and just a blast. Like my shark, I can't imagine being without it.

Cool thread. Nice bikes guys! Been riding since I was a kid in the 60's. In order:

Alexander Reynolds 3.5 hp mini bike (my brothers actually but we all rode the wheels off it).
'66 Suzuki K10 (or K15?) 80cc single cylinder 2 stroke - my "dirt bike".
'74 RD350 (came with Jesus stickers on the engine cases!)
'80 KZ750
'82 Katana 1000
'96 KLX 650R
'98 VFR800
'88 Ducati ST2 (setup with all kinds of goodies)
'00 KTM 520 EXC
'04 KTM 250 EXC
'02 YZ250
And a couple of projects that came and went that are really not worth mentioning as I basically passed them on without doing a thing to them.

No street bikes anymore, doin' it in the dirt now.


'66 Suzuki K10 -Not mine, but the same model. Mine was considerably more, ahem, "broken in."


'82 Katana 1000


'96 KLX650R


'00 KTM 520 EXC


'98 VFR800


'98 ST2


'04 KTM 250 EXC
