    Hey,
    Just wondering how many members ride motorcycles?
    I ride the Aprilia Tuono pictured below.
    It's the other Italian.

    Yup, bought it new in 09 (it's an 08) and it has been to mile marker Zero (the bottom of the Florida Keys) Just about to turn 48,000 and with the exception of front brake pads, a shock tube leak, oil changes and 3 sets of tires (soon to be 4) she has never let me down!
    Most fun you can have with your clothes on (shooting is a close 2nd):cool:

    Another Goldwing...
    003-26.jpg
    Looked like this for several years before the spoke wheel conversion...
    DSC00791.jpg
    Originally was identical to this but was repainted white before I got it...
    images-5.jpg
    I've put about 45k on it since I got it in '97. Aside from routine maintenance (fluids, brakes, tires, T-belt) it's never has a single problem. As much as I'd like a shiney new ride, it's just been too good to replace.
    I did run it off the road over on Tollgate near Elgin shortly after I got it. That's where the original bags, trunk and fairing went:rolleyes:.

    Never would've thought that was a goldwing. Sweet looking ride.

    Thanks. It's been debadged and changed enough that usually only another Goldwing guy would recognize it. Aside from the VIN tags on the neck and lower frame there are no identifiers. I even machined the "HONDA" off of the calipers. If I have any complaints about it, it's that the footboards grind the road surface in tight corners if I don't have the suspension aired up. I don't have very long legs so I rarely air it up unless I'm on a long trip. Not really the bike's fault, just a combination of my stubbiness and aftermarket parts.

    A shot of one of the early GL1000/Harley hybrid wheels...
    006-12.jpg
    The 16" Harley hoops make it much easier to find tires. All I had to do was have 1/16" machined from the GL1100 caliper brackets and extend the rear swingarm 1" to accommodate a GL1000 final drive. Future plans call for a repaint, new spokes and tires.

    I sold my Ducati Multistrada when I moved back to Oregon because I found I was riding my dirt bikes more than the Ducati. It sure was a fun street bike though and the sound of a 90 deg. twin is to die for.

    I have a Husaberg 70 deg. FE 570 and a two stroke Beta Alp - haven't been riding for a while though.

    I currently have a 2013 sporty, and a 1980 CX500...I say currently because I go through bikes like crazy...generally buying barn finds, restoring them and flipping them.
