You drive a car or truck, you ride a motorcycle :)
I have been riding for 33 years, mostly Harleys.

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!

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.

Started out on a '70 BSA Lightning back in the day, now on a '95 Road King that I rode to Sturgis and back in 2005. Got the sacred patch there.
