1998 road king classic. I have installed Vance &Hines exhaust, replaced the grips and buttons and added highway pegs. Now that I'm working a more travel friendly shift I plan to get a mustang seat and bars that will allow me to stretch out a little more.
The air ride on the bike lead to the addition of air ride on my truck.
1996 BMW R1100 GS and a 2007 Harley ultra glide classic. both very fine bikes for their designed purpose but the BMW is more versatile. Looking to move down to only one bile and debating between a new GS and a new BMW boxer RT. Also wondering about their smaller bikes but hate to lose the shaft drive and the quietness of the boxer. ANybody our their with a newer BMW with any comments aboutthem?
then with more wheels, a 2009 Honda 420 Rancher electric shift and a 2013 Polaris sportsman 550 X2 and an old 2002 Polaris Sportsman 700 for plowing that now needs to come apart since the engine oli is mayonnaise from the water in the base-starts and runs fine but must be a gasket or seal problem somewhere-they have a crazy design with the water pump and oil pump on the same shaft with a seal between them. Anyhow, more projects.
I was a sport bike guy... but I destroyed myself racing MX and SCORE. My knees and back can't take the tuck of a "Full" sport bike anymore. I can still ride nekid's... that's what the Buell is for. Right now... I'm on a search for a B-King. But all the one's I find are either totally pimp'ed out, or they just want too much $$$.
Here's a video from some level 2 offroad training a bunch of us did this past June. 20 riders at Microsoft all got together, we hired a private coach for the weekend and proceeded to faff about pretending to learn new skills. I swear, to this day, I still cannot loft the front wheel on the KTM properly...LOL
That's my wife on one of my BMW's. This one is an ex-Heinz Leutringhauser 1937 R6. That day of the picture I rode it over to a local bar but she followed in a car in case I broke down. Think it was about 40 miles of fun in all.
This is one of my Harleys. It's a 1944 U Model, same year as me. My wife is also playing on it but I have to start the creature for her to ride. Pays to marry a younger woman.
Well I guess one should post about them.
My wife's grandfather bought some sleds new in 1975. They are the same sled, just different name/color. 1974 Johnson Golden Ghost 30 and 1974 Evinrude Quiet Flite 30. She remembers riding them around as a kid and many fond memories. He passed away in...

I need to replace my 2005 Polaris Ranger 500 that was stolen. I had pretty good luck with the Polaris, the only thing was the fuel pump and the computer over the years. Still had three of the original ATV tires.
My needs have changed a little and I was considering the Kioti with its steel bed...
I havew had BMW shaft drive motorcycles since leaving college and also a HArley with the belt drive. Both are quiet, clean and generally trouble free. I am hoping to sell the Harley and probably the BMW and get something a bit smaller and handier. Everything I might want seems to be chain...
