Mozz, that's classic!! ROTFLMAO! :P :lol:

I grew up with mopeds back in the 70's and 80's, and have a certain nostalgia for them. Puch, Motobecane, Peugeot, etc. One of my favorites was the Yamaha Chappy. Cute little thing. I ended up with a Trac moped in the mid 80's, Korean I seem to recall. I put something well over 4000 miles on it in little more than a year before getting my drivers license. Rode the pants off that thing and it never let me down.

I had bikes from about the time I was 12 or so on. Had a 1971 Suzuki T90 that I drove to work at Carl's Drugs for years. Dad has a 1970 Suzuki T250 that I rode for a long time also. Bike is mint. We had a GS650 and an XS11 for a while. Had a RD350 (great bike) and a FJ11. 2 CR250s were my play toys for the dirt. Everything was bought used. Since I had kids, the wife isn't keen on me riding on the street so I have to settle for a 4 wheeler and my snowmobile. I'd like another street bike, but only have one other friend that rides (He just got a BRP Spyder) and he doesn't ride much anymore so it's hard to justify the $$ for something that would sit a lot, but I do dream about having a bike again someday.....

Actually just picked them both up a few months ago. I had a 1981 honda sitting in the back of the garage which needed lots of work and was slowly working on it. That had over 6000 miles on it, was really carboned up in the pipe, wonder it even started. These 1982's came along on craigslist for $180 for the pair, serial numbers are very close, each one has a bit over 300 miles on them. Going to be grocery getters this summer.

Nice score on the Hondas, Mozz!

I had a '80 GT80 Yamaha dirt bike as my first bike in 4th grade. Wore that one out and then got a '82 MX100 Yamaha, which was a great all-around trail bike. My dad got into riding with a '79 XS400 Yamaha, and soon after upgraded to a 1980 XS850G triple - the 'standard' model, not the Special. That was a really great bike - although tall and heavy as he!!. He gave it to me after I graduated high school in '88 and I rode it solo from Long Island, NY to Indiana to visit some old friends. Incredible trip! I kept it part way through college, but I wasn't riding it (away from home at school) and neither was my dad, so we sold it to the local dealer for a song. What a waste. It had almost 30k miles, but it was absolutely mint yet.

I've always had a desire to get back into riding with a BMW bike, but took up flying instead - much safer!

I'd much rather be in a Sonerai or a S2b or even a cramped 150 than ride a motorcycle!!

I agree. Currently we own a Cessna 140, but we've been building a Europa XS Monowheel kitplane for a number of years. That project has been on hold for a while due to work demands and family demands (having a child will really blow your spare time! LOL!) But, it's priceless when I can plop our son, who's 5, next to me in the plane, fly him to his grandparents (about a 45 minute flight) and have him fall asleep on my shoulder in the plane. It just doesn't get any better than that.

Sorry to hijack the thread - back to motorcycles! Anyone got a really clean RD350 or RD400 Yamaha? I really miss the smell of Yamalube on my clothes!

Ok.....ok, is it lost on anyone here that 85% of posters are Pennsylvania residents and not one mention of a homebrewed motorcycle. I have fond memories of my 1978 Ironhead Kick Shorty The ass busting I would get was relentless about my girlie bike, then I 'd ask Mister button pusher to start my said Girlie bike....DOH!
I modified it so it was actually a Hardtail with fake shocks and the seat height was 28" inches, with the drag bars it turned out pretty nice, the kid I sold it to won best Shorty at Stafford Springs Speedway a few years back.
I'm not a purist, or even an owner anymore, been years now, all my friends died off....tragically, and the wife would no longer ride with me especially after my buddy Dean-O (rip) lost it back in '98.

More power to ya guys, do what you want....I think it was best I depARTED from the world of 2-wheelers.....not a decision I regret when I think back on it now.

No pictures, but I ride a 2001 Moto Guzzi California Jackel. After several Harleys I really like the Guzzi. My wife has a 2005 police Harley that we just purchased in Sept. with 3000 miles. The bike is basically a Road King with police gear, a nice ride.

2000 BMW 1100 RT . This summer I put just over 12000 miles on it . I would still be using it but my driveway has turned to ice . I would have also put more miles on but we have a newborn this year and has been more fun . Dave

Here is a photo of my 2001 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic. We had it triked two years ago. Also had a six disk CD changer installed in the trunk with after market speakers. Very comfortable to ride.

Nice Pics Zack, sounds like you got lucky on that high side on turn 9! Nothing like a one litre bike with tons of HP just wanting you to wick it up! :lol: That's why I am older and slower on my ZX6Rs. :P

Current stable of bikes: 4 2005 ZX6Rs (track only), 2005 Buell Firebolt XB9, 2004 KTM SMR 450 Super Moto, 2003 PW50 (daughter's bike), 2001 Sherpa 290 Trials, 2001 CR250, 1989 Cr250.

I have owned my share of bikes, the most fun are the Buells, total experience of what a street bike should be IMO. Then again I have to envy flyer with the RT, I'm sure once I take a ride on that thing I'll be selling something to get one!

I won't bore you will pictures of all my junk, I have (or parted out) every model Honda made from 1980-1983, too many Yamaha XS650, XS750, XS850's from '77-81, about a dozen CB360T's in every color scheme, Z1 900's, Z1 1000's, H1 triple, H2 triple, you name it I have a junkyard. :D really. My daily rider was this 1990 CBR1000F I got with 1,000 miles on the clock. The previous owner laid it down, escaped death, and that was the end of his riding career. I did the Iron Butt 1500 miles in 2 days gimmick on a 2000 ZX12R, then I sold it and bought a '98 VFR800 which is by far the sweetest bike of them all. Now I ride a '77 CB750K SOHC when I get the urge or this original GL1000 but with 4 kids and my salvage yard and our hobby farm we're building up I ride like one day a year. To be honest I rode everywhere for years until the "close calls" started adding up. Now dodging traffic doesn't interest me as much, I'd rather ride the forest trails on a dual sport.
