    Anyone else here interested in motorcycles? I've still got a few left. Any photos of your bikes past or present?

    I rode a lot before the kids were born. Had a Suzuki SV 650 and loved it. Great bike. Will ride again one day.

    I had Panheads from 16-35. Sold my next to last one to purchase a 27’ sailboat
    I don’t know of any pix I could lay my hands on but I did have a shot of me in the In The Wind section of Easy Rider. Pretty sure it was in mid to late 1970

    2015 Yamaha FZ07 here. Rode dirt bikes when I was a teenager and didn't start riding streetbikes until about three years ago. Love my bike.

    Love 'em. Been riding since I was eight, and that was longer ago than I care to think about sometimes, though I suppose that's a good thing when it comes to riding. Currently have two - a 96 Ducati 900 SSCR and an 07 Ducati 999s Team USA.

    Yep, raced bikes my whole life. Started with Road racing RGV and NSR250's and eventually ended up in Motocross.

    Been to Japan a few times to the bike auctions in Tokyo, bought, sold and traded many...V-Rods, Ducati 999, 749's, GSXR 750 and my favorite being the large scooters, Honda SIlver wing 600, Suzuki Burgman 650, Yamaha T-Max 500 (current work bike).

    Even got to ride a Ducati Desmodici (road legal Moto GP bike) on some open road for 20 minutes...(unreal experience).

    Im #57 below.

    You sound like a Genuine Mad Kiwi... are you?

    I’m from ‘the Tron’, born in Kawerau...

    I’ve ridden bikes since I was about 14... still don’t have a car license at 41...

    I’d like to mod myself a cafe racer... maybe next summer... (don’t tell the wife, she thinks I’m only obsessed with guitars)

    Been a biker since the age of ten. I've had far to many bikes to list here but large capacity sports bike have been dominant, and I've used them on the track.
    However, age takes its toll and earlier this year arthritis has meant the end of big powerful bikes so I brought a 125 dirt bike so I'm still on two wheels.
    We just don't give in, that's bike for you.
