I am trying to get the place back together again. Who's in?
I’m retired , live in No. VA (DC suburbs). Ride a Harley Roadking, a BMW R1200RS, and Triumph Bonneville. I ride every chance I get. Bought my first MC, a Honda 350, in 1969. How many bikes should you own? One more than you have.
I ended up with two bad knees and had to sell my Ultra after 16 riding seasons. Had 122,496 miles on it. Road tested a Road King the other day and what a difference. Very low center of gravity. I’ve got three bikes and couldn’t bring myself to trading in any of them and don’t want four bikes again. Wish I had never demoed the RK. I have a 07 Softail Custom, a 1998 Ultra with Harley side car and bought a 14 Trike last fall so my wife would ride with me. I had a Triumph Speed Master and an R-50 BMW and an R-69 with a German hack. I started riding in the 60’s when we lived in CA. Better stop before you start yawning.
Karen, best wishes on getting everyone rounded up! I will try to make it in more often, but it seems like I've always got a fire or two to put out (figuratively).
Any way, I've got a 2011 Ultra Classic that has taken me 77,000 miles so far. I keep rotating second bikes in and out, an XL1200R, 1150GS, KlR, so on. I waste a lot of riding days farming, but hope to slide that to the lower end of the scale one of these days.
