Despite current events, Summer isn't cancelled! Curious what bikes members are riding? Modern or classic
I have a few old bikes that aren't getting ridden as often as needed, but I recently got one of the carbed T100 Bonnevilles from 2005. I truly believe those are one of the best buys in the motorcycling world today. A classic so it won't go out of style. Simple carbs. Reliable as hell. And affordable when perfect ones are at $3k. Going to sell the Tenere, and that's what I'll be riding most.
I'm planning on some trail riding on the '89 XR250R, and it would be fun to find something more street friendly to add to my stable for a few longer day trips.
Riding my 1978 Kawasaki KE100! We did a top-end rebuild of it a couple years ago. Runs great. The kids love it, too. I putt around the neighborhood on it with my 7 and 5-year olds along for the ride. Then drop them in the driveway and head out on the sandy 2-track behind my house. Fun times!
I actually am riding two bikes this summer my 1979 Honda CBX 1000
and my 1970 Honda SL 350. Two very different bikes from a great era of motorcycling. I have own the CBX since ‘92 and the SL since ‘74.
I know I am getting old when is show up to our usual gathering place Sunday morning and the younger rider start asking me questions and are in awe of the inline 6. They have never seen anything like it.
The 350 makes everyone smile, I just love the looks of the bike, it was my first bike, if you don’t count my CT70.
