You want bikes? I got bikes.

I want a motorcycle

I'm noticing a trend of more sporty bikes, no one rides cruisers?

^ depends what you want to do.

I prefer sport touring type bikes for the riding I do. My cousin recently got a S1000RR though that I got to ride a good bit on our last time through WV - it was so much fun to ride. But you couldn't ride it for more than a couple hours... where as my Duc Multistrada or my other family members BMW 1200 GS's you could ride almost all day without much discomfort.

I've notice a lot of young dudes (like me I suppose) do like sport bikes for tooling around town.

I've never been a fan of cruisers like the HD's - premium price tag with sub-premium performance (brakes, handling, etc)

Since that pic was taken for a calendar shoot, she is fine with it. The original owners of CycleForums.Com were hit by a drunk driver and fell on hard times. They could not staff the moto accessory shop they ran as it was just a small husband and wife team running it. So a bunch of the ladies on the board sent me pics of them on the their bikes for a calendar we sold to raise money to help them out.

A Harley Davidson does one thing better than any other motorcycle on the planet. And that is BE a Harley Davidson. You don't buy a Harley because you want comfort, performance, reliability, etc, etc. You buy a Harley because you want a HARLEY. HD are good bikes for what they are. You just have to understand what they are. If a Harley is the only thing that makes your heart go pitter patter, then that is what you need to buy. If you just want a cruiser, than there are plenty of other options.

I am an MSF Rider Coach, so I have this conversation quite often with new riders.

Yep.....with HD you either get it, or you don't. After 45 years of riding bikes....I don't get it.....although some are nice to look at.

Cibbersicks: sick bike. The paint, carbon accents and seat all look amazing together.

GoGo Gadget: When I was 16 my bike was a green motocross KTM, brings back memories. Great group of pictures you are a lucky man.

I sold my bike to get the M. If I didn't spend all my money on mods, I would probably pick up an F800R



I used to really like the Shiver 750, but the current color schemes are terrible. The old colors were much better:

Here's my '06 Buell XB9SX before a complete Rizoma LED install. It looks WAY better now without those bulbous... bulbs.

Well said. Thank God for Buell. I like the sound of Harleys and what they represent, but I'm not a "cruiser guy" -- I like something sporty. But I don't associate myself with a "sport bike guy" either. Buell was my answer.

I loved my Buell 1125R. Raced it a few times at Pocono. Had to sell, but slightly on topic:

Speaking of Buell, here's my 2010 1125r. One of only, if I remember right, 27 built that final year. One of the craziest bikes I've ever owned.
