We have a Harley Road King (2004) FDNY special. It's, (of course) Seagrave Red. The color is not my favorite, and it clashes with my purple helmet.

I love taking a nice long ride with my husband, someday he wants a toy hauler RV so it (or another bike) will be our primary vehicle. Once the kids are out though, so it may be a while.

Thanks Roy, I can't wait to bring her home. The doofus can't find the title, so I wait "patiently" while he applies for a duplicate.

Here's the 1971 Honda CB750K1 I bought new. I'm doing a minor restoration on it right now. I need to pull the period-correct Jardine 4-into-1 headers and have them rechromed, rebuild the front brake master cylinder and some other minor stuff. While I'm doing that, I ride my 2007 BMW K1200GT to get my seat time in.

Rusty:

You just demonstrated why the UK motorcycle industry died off. In 1971, the Norton Commando I was involved with still had cable-operated drum brakes and only two cylinders. You still had to kick-start it, too!

I gave up on them in 1968 and came to the US to work for Boeing.

Been riding for 40 years. Current main ride is a 2002 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy. I also still own (and ride) my first street bike, a 1982 Suzuki GS 1100E. First real motorcycle was a Suzuki 120cc dirt bike.

Hey Offthewall, You have been riding for 40 years, I've been riding for over 45. I see your bikes tag reads "historic" . Does your driver license say that too?

Well, since I didn't make the rapture yesterday, I got the front brake master cylinder rebuilt on the 750 Honda today (see post #60 above). I had forgotten just how much I hate internal circlips!!

I would seriously get a license that said "Historic" on it if they offered it
No denying it now

First ride, Honda 305 Dream, 60something (CRS disease). Current ride 2001 Kawasaki Vulcan Nomad 1500FI. Don't know how to post pictures. But they wouldn't tell much about how nice this thing rides.

Nope, don't ride. Why? When I was in my twenties I had a early 70's Honda 350 and would ride it to work during the week and take long rides in the country on the weekends. Well one day I was following a station wagon (remember them) approaching an interstate overpass. One of the young kids in the back decided it would be neet to see what I would do if he chucked a watermelon out the back. No harm done. Then while riding on the interstate (not same day) was passed by a big rig which had to move over quite quickly. In this case size did matter and, well that was the end of my riding.
