I've been riding for 37 years (started at 14, now 51) and have owned many bikes, imported and domestic.

My first road bike was a used Honda 750-Four that was a couple of years old when I bought it in the mid-late '70s. I sold that to a buddy of mine and picked up a Kawasaki 900 Eliminator (not my pic, identical bike though). Had a 900cc Ninja motor on it. Rated at 0-60 in a hair over 2.5 seconds.



My first Harley was a used 1992 Sportster that I bought in 1994. I had that for approximately one year. This is my second Harley, purchased new in 1995, and 'modded' in true Head-Fi fashion. I sold it in 2005.



And and replaced it with this:

I usually wrench on my own bikes, but the frustration with H-D is that you need so many damn tools, a maddening combination or hex head, torx head, philips, slot, allens. To change the front tire on the Buell I had to buy 4 new tools. With the KTM and all the Japanese bikes i've owned, you can take them apart with the tools in the pouch under the seat.

1975 XR 750 Flat Tracker. Dominated flat tracking for years
1975 350 ers Flat tracker. Great learning tool for dirt ovals

They also made a 4 cly 500cc gp bike in 1975 I came up short a few buck on a trade for one of them (made 16) two years ago, an excellent 250cc 1975 motocrosser and a road race version of the xr750 that dominated for a few years.

They made some fine track bikes, most in connection with Aermacchi in Italy which they owned. Although I have a few Harley road bikes I ride an old Yamaha VMax on the street. Fun stuff

The AMF Hardleys don't count. I think Willie would like to forget he ever made that deal.

But he did make the deal. I'm afraid that means they count.

The vmax is the second most frightening bike I've ever ridden, behind the R6. So much power, so little control

The R6 is scary because it's so much power and so little weight.

No. No. Not the dark ages. Willie has since repented his sins. It only counts as a bad dream..Oh! the horror
