New Old Guy
I hate intros. I'm 53, been riding since I was 13. I have owned a lot of bikes, starting with a Cushman scooter, Allstate moped, then a Honda 250 (rejugged to 305!) Dream, several dirt bikes, mostly Yamahas, Suzis, and Hondas, a '72 Triumph TR6R, Honda 750, 920 Yamaha Virago (I actually still have a couple of those)... Lot of bikes. Hell, I still have a lot of bikes. A Honda Shadow 1100, a Suzuki VX800, a Kawi 440B, a Honda CX500. I can only say that , though I ride the Shadow a lot, I perfer a Standard (Naked Bike?) to anything else. My next one'll likely be a 919, though I 'd consider a BMW or possibly a Bandit. We'll see. There, that about says it all to start.
