Just a light note to end a rather dull Sunday.

How many of us (Lumberjocks) ride a motorcycle?

I’ll start. I ride a 2009 Harley Softail Deluxe. Before that it was a Harley Road King, and before that was a Harley Sportster. :)

I ride a Lowrider but I am eyeballing another FLH. My previous FLH was a Panhead. I also like those Road Kings.

Padre I am going to take you back a few years my 1st motor bike was a James, then a Java, the last one a BSA which I had an accident with and still have back problem today, so that is the story of my bikes.
Couple years ago my boy got a Kawasaki 4 cylinders I tried it boy was it fast.

I have a Yamaha Virago 700. Lots of add ons to it, she is a beauty. I actually haven’t ridden her in a number of years, for many reasons. She is for sale if anyone is interested. I lose my husband every spring to his other girlfriend, Kawasaki 1500 Nomad, he does long runs, some are cross country.
I have my tools : )

I ride a 06 v-star 1100 silverado. Upgraded with a maxx air performance intake, cobra highway bars, vance and hines slip-on mufflers and various other chrome goodies. I’m hoping to pick up all the sheet metal parts this week. I just had them custom painted with green and silver flames.

‘99 BMW K1200LT (one of the very first of this model made – bought it new in ‘99) and a ‘77 BMW R100/7 (the first liter bike that BMW offered – in excellent condition – I’m only the second owner). I love them both. I know I don’t need 2 bikes but which one do I give up?

If I ever win the Lottery (yeah, right) I will look up someone to make me one of these:
Kanedas bike from Akira

Other than that, I have never driven one. I have ridden on one or two.
