Just curious how long you all have been riding on road. I am 36 and have been on the road with bikes since 16. I actually got my cycle license 4 months after I got my auto license. So 20 years of on road experience for me. I started riding bicycles without training wheels when I was 3.5 years old and by time I was 4.5 I was riding small dirt bikes. Motorcycles has and always will be my biggest passion.

Last night my wife and I were talking about the new SG we are going to pick up end of April and she asked me how many bikes I owned. Here is the list and this does not include dirt bikes and quads.

1995 Honda CBR 600F3
1999 Yamaha R6
2000 Ducati 748
2001 Harley Davidson Custom 1200 Sportster
2002 Suzuki GSXR 1000
2003 Honda RC51
2008 Harley Davidson Night Train
2012 Harley Davidson Street Glide

Picture of my favorite sport bike I owned.

Bought my Yamaha Virago in 1988 sold it three months later and bought a sportster. Bought my 1985 flhtc in 1991 working on its second ground up rebuild currently. So 24 years riding.

Started in 2004. Bought a brand new GSXR600 while on R&R from Iraq. Took a break then I got a bobbed out nightster, and now my SG.

My Dad is going on bike #25 next month.

Love that bike, it F-ing gorgeous!


Tap it!

Thanks man! Hard on the ass with the stock seat and hard on the wrists on average length rides. Bike is really designed for the track. I got so many compliments on the Sato Racing exhaust. Best exhaust you could run on a RC. Bike was dyno tuned at 135RWHP was not a lot in comparison to the weight and other bikes but a lot for a RC51. I tracked it too and it was a dream in the twisties. Very stable and predictable.
