I have a 1996 Honda Magna and 2008 Yamaha Raider. I have hot rodded both bikes with fuel, air, exhaust and other mods. I have been riding bikes for 44 now. I went with the Gt for the v-8 power. I also have a 1999 F-250SD deisel 4x4 that I have modified. And since I can’t seem to leave anything alone, I’m in process of modding my Mustang too.

Did the same thing with my 09 Harley XR1200. Torque kit, exhaust, fuel tuner, intake, handle bars, front fender, tail light, and rear shocks. And of course, I couldn't let my hands off my Mustang, either. :D

I love cycle riding but hardly get out on the street anymore.
I do mostly trail riding on the minis.
for street riding I have a sxr900 early model vin #142 off the line.

Just found this thread!

Very heavy into bikes....big into Italian bikes ranging from antique and modern Guzzis, MV Agusta, Bimota. Also had Ducati and Gixxer for track days. (Over that after big crash)
Latest purchase was the obligatory 2015 Road King.
Also have a ‘71 trail 70 Honda with an upgraded 110cc 4 speed motor. (Still have original motor)

Also still work in the bike business.

Nice collection machsmith. And wow, a CT70. Had some good riding memories on one of those a bunch of years back!

thanks WD, they are fun little bikes. I ride them daily out on my acreage. some are just for little scants and collector tinkering, which is very enjoying on the old little single Honda's. I'll try to find another 50 this spring/summer. I just picked up this nice candy red original 69 a couple months ago. my full collection is in my sig.

I come from a poor family, we didn't have anything but I had a buddy who had a 50 and 70 and he would let me ride the 50. There were tons of memories on it , thus started my passion for the minis 30+years later.
my favorite is probably the SL70KO in Aquarius blue totally original and near flawless. the other of course is the bike identical to the one I drove as a kid 1969 red silver tag z50.
I highly recommend them as they are good little stress relievers and fun to maintain. safe riding!

I rode when I was in college. I had an 86 Yamaha FZ750. Early “superbike” and had a lot of character. It was a heavy bastard but once it got moving, the 5V Genesis would rip right up to about 12k RPM.

I paid $1,100 for it and rode it for probably two years, sold it non-running for $500. A guy picked it up on a trailer and as he was leaving it tipped over and almost hit the road. Thankfully one strap saved it from certain doom.

I would love to get back in to riding but not where I live now.

Wow, not sure how I missed this thread, since bikes are my biggest passion....

First up, my primary ride (bought new), '06 HD VRSCR. Old pic, but as it appears today.

First bike I built in the mid-'90s, as it appeared 15+ years ago. I recently reacquired it much worse for wear and it's getting a partial redo.

The second bike I built, as it appears today.

My former '94 Ducati M900. Loved it and should have kept it but want to get another newer, higher-powered one.

Lastly, my '66 Sears 250. This one was my late father's and had sat under a pile of rugs and blankets in various sheds since 1981. I've just cleaned it up, fixed what needed it, and readied it for (occasional) use again.

I've also got a '71 Super Glide (the boattail version, for those in the know) that's in an advanced state of disassembly (i.e. basket case) but complete that I'm about to sell to a friend who won't stop bothering me about doing so.

Everyone loves a basketcase... The motorcycle sounds good, too.
