Well I bought a Suzuki DR650 to help out with the rising cost of diesel, I still need my truck though to pull my gooseneck and boat, went to the station last night, 7.12 to fill up. 55 mpg, I love it:rof
I'm debating one in the near future if prices keep going up through 2009. My good friend just picked up an R1, that thing is nuts. On a road right by me a group stunt rides all summer long and its pretty neat to watch them.
Sold the GTO 15 years ago to pay for the wedding. I sold my last Harley a few years ago and put the cash into the deposit on the House. I hate to think what I have to give up for the next purchase!!!
It's not that bad though, I have an agreement with the wife that I (we) made sacrifices to get in a better financial position overall when we were young so that we would be safe later on. ITS LATER ON!!!
Now I want an anniversary edition Dyna Wide Glide. I just have to get rid of the toys in the garage first; 75 Baja Bug, 88 T-bird Turbocoupe, 5.0l ford engine I was gonna put in the Miata (Going with the LS-1 and 6 speed instead) then I'll have some room in the budget to put down the deposit.
And best of all I'm working on building a diesel bike now!
It's a 1995 EX250 rolling chassis. I'm installing a 10hp yanmar diesel with a comet 500 CVT for the transmission. Others have been built, top speed it only about 60mph. But there's just something nice about 120+ mpgs!
Was riding a 98 Goldwing, but my wife though I was gettin too old & decrepid to have 2 up on that, so sold it and bought a Honda Magna - 750 4 cyl. Wouln't want to go to the west coast and back on it, but it's a blast around town and just cruisin. Will blow past most 1100's fun, fun, fun.
2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 800..... gets mid to upper 40's most of the time got 60 out of it once... i don't ride it much other than for fun, I alway seem to need my truck and instead of riding home and getting the truck and going back to town I just take the truck.
1996 Kawasaki KLX650R that I got street tagged in Washington State. That thing is neat, rebuilt motor with high compression piston and decked cylinder and head. Fully done suspension, forks by a place out in Mass and rear shock out in WA. And the bruiser Suzuki M109R with 127 hp at the crank from the factory. That thing is a rocket sled. I get a perma grin every time i ride it.
