I was just curious how many fellow riders are on this forum?
I currently only have 3 bikes,

a 1985 Honda shadow vt700c custom chopped hard-tailed all customized by me. I built everything from the footpegs to the seat to the handlebars I have over 30 hours in repairing and painting the gas tank alone.

a 1980 Honda CM400t stock except for the paint which was fading and chipping so I repainted the tank and fender as well as blacked out the engine

and a Yamaha rt180 dirt bike which is full stock (pink and purple why not LOL

I am looking to add a large cruiser 1100+ cc and a sport bike like a fireblade 1000rr to my stable eventually.

so chime in who rides and whatcha got?

I was after a kh400 before i had the zephyr but triples are fetching daft money now, my brother in law has 3 kh’s in bits in his cellar as well as a CBX1000 6 cylinder just sitting there doing nothing, criminal 🤨 i regret selling my Z900, Harley, W650 and 2 x series 1 RS turbos 😔

Ive had a 1987 GSXR1100 slab side and a GSXR600, the 600 was a lot more fun and easy to chuck about, the 1100 was just plain dangerous 🙄

I learned on a 600 light enough to learn on but fast enough to be stupid dangerous for a beginner

just outlawed cellphones here, traffic was deadly the last 2 years this year the beginning was the worst since I have been riding. fatalities everywhere. My daughter loves to ride, but my bike spent more time "broke down" than putting her out there.

Here’s my bikes I build from non-running and beat up Yamaha xs650’s. One’s an 81’ and the other is a 79’. I chop the rear ends off these bikes and weld on hardtail’s and then customize them to my liking. I don’t send anything out either so everything is done by me.

Sweet. I always dreamt of doing a small ride like that for my daughter (comparatively small), but she never took interest. Oh well. More money for my shovel 😎
Let me know if you ever need some leather on a project.

My Suzuki TL1000S

AKA 'the Widowmaker', an unfair nickname from when they first came out in the late 90s. Lots of fun.
