Hey all.

I've never been a big motorcycle guy but since moving to south Texas and seeing them all the time I started thinking more about maybe getting one next year sometime.

Naturally the first brand I checked out was HARLEY. Boy they make some beautiful bikes. Who wouldn't love a Heritage Softail or a Fat Boy? Heck I'd take any of them.

I checked out the websites of all the BIG names and all of them make good looking bikes, but the only other models I really liked were from Victory. Their Cruisers are beautiful, especially the Boulevard.

So that's what my picks are. What's yours? If you were going to get a new motorcycle what would it be? If you have one now how about posting pics?

One other cycle that I have always liked was the BMW R1200C. What a sweet looking cycle. One of my friends back home used to have a maroon one.

Lets see your picks.....

I have always liked the Harley Fat Bob in Matte black. That will be my next bike if I ever sell my current one. I am not a fan of the Sportser series, a little too small looking.

I recently sold my play car and can swing a new Ducati Panigale S straight across but simply can't justify that kind of cash for a motorcycle. The new Triumph Trophy 12 is looking mighty attractive, though. HH

Confederate Hellcat is my dream bike. Not likely to ever get it so I'm settling for a CVO Road Glide.

This is the bike I learned on. It's a 2001 Suzuki Marauder 800. I bought it January of 2008 and still have it until I sell it sometime this spring hopefully. It was a reliable ride and all I ever did was put gas in it and change the oil. Chain and sprockets and tires when needed. It was good to learn on but not my dream bike.

This is my new 2012 klr650 I just bought in September. IT is a great ride and does well on road and off road. Being a 650 it can get up to about 95 but that's a little rough, but it can ride 70-80 all day.

I love this bike! It's a lot of fun and the bike of my dreams for right now.

Or I would go a few years old and pick up a rare cruiser... The 2004 Honda Valkyrie Rune.

Before deciding on a bike, it might be an idea to decide what kind of riding one wants to do. Long distance, fast, local, off road each may have a different answer.

RC-RAMIE
11-25-2012, 18:51
I have had 4 liter bikes in the past and I'm looking at cheap commuters this time. The CBR250/CRF250L or one of the new Honda 500. If I was looking at spending more money I would narrow it down to the NC700X or the CB1000R.

A BMW R100RS, any year it was produced.

I had one. I rode it all over Europe; great bike to ride in countries where other drivers see motorcycles.

My experience trying to ride it in the US was that people driving vehicles with 4 or more wheels do not see motorcycles and if you're riding tucked in - you don't see them too well either.

The other factor with a cafe racer style bike is that you ride in the front leaning rest position and count on air pressure generated by hauling ass to hold you up. Here, it's hard to haul ass.

I gave my BMW R100Rs to the Disabled American Veterans and bought a Harley.

Here's my Bimmer.

I had an '09, same as yours but with the black wheels. I had Holeshot exhaust and a PCIII with custom tune. Sargeant seats. Not the most sporting motorcycle, but sporting for such a big bike. Very, very comfortable for long rides. More than once, I went out in search of twisty road and found myself halfway to San Francisco with dinner plans back down here in Orange County. I am happier with my Speed Triple for the riding I do, but I wish I'd had the room to keep the FJR and the time to take long trips on it. A rock-solid, reliable, fast, comfortable motorcycle.

One thing that doesn't really bother me is the ignorance of the Harley haters. At the end of the day, I'm on a Harley. If you're driving a Mercedes and a guy in a Saturn tells you how much they suck, who is laughing at who?

I can see a BMW being likened to a Mercedes. A Harley is more like a Ford or a Chebby.

I personally wouldn't be caught dead in either a Ford or a Honda. At least not one that I put money into, anyway.

I got into bikes late and HARD. Bought my first at 27. Was always a car guy... High performance, big horsepower. Last toy (car) was a 700HP twin-turbo C6 Vette. Ever since I started riding though, I've totally forgotten about 4 wheels.

I love all bikes. Sport bikes are hard for me to ride due to bad elbows, unfortunately... Once my current property sells I'll be moving south or west and downsizing, having basically no debt. My plan is to build my bike collection to the point where I have a tool for every job. I love old iron, so I gotta have a knuckle head... And also definitely looking to build a ground up ironhead sportster chop. My next project bike will probably be a FXR. Love to add a dual sport and a touring bike as well. I can see building 3 or 4 older bikes and then having a newer dual sport, maybe a KTM, as well as a Street/Road Glide tourer, and of course my current ride, which won't be going anywhere...

If it works for you then that's good. The general consensus in the sportbike community (amongst the riders that know how to ride and track their bikes instead of squiding it up in the streets) is that the two brothers exhaust system don't hold up very well and are made to very low standards. Horror stories of them all over the net.

Next time try Akrapovic, M4, Leo Vince, Arrow, Yoshimura, Termignoni, or even Graves.

really? hadnt heard. ive had others, Akrap, Yoshi, and an M4.

as far as a slip on goes, i dont expect much gains without a full system and a PC. On my VFR, which is a touring bike, not a track bike, i did it for the glorious V-4 sound, and the high mount 2bros carbon slip on sounded the best, and ive ridden with many VFR guys. second fav was my Yoshi RS-3 on my CBR, but the inlines dont sound as cool.

I admit they do make some loud pipes (2bros). I definitely want a V-twin one day for that glorious sound you mentioned. The RC-51 was a great bike Honda made, too bad they stopped production on it. And the inlines definitely do not sound great at all compared to them..:/

Ah, many years back I used to love motorcycles...

Then one day I was one the way to my Mother's school to help her clear out her classroom for summer when I saw an accident.

A young man on a motorcycle just ran straight through this intersection - t-boned a car - went over it and though a barbed wire fence.

I've seen a lot of things, but that was probably the most vivid memory I have. Needless to say, the fence stayed where it was and the young man passed through it.

He did not die immediately. In fact, he lived about 6 months in an induced coma before he died of a staff infection.

Ah, many years back I used to love motorcycles...




Everyone's risk tolerance is different. I didn't ride for 2 decades when I had little kids. I am in my late 50s now and my kids are grown, so I have been riding again.

I realized long ago that bad things happen and when our time is up that's it. My wife was a vegetarian, exercised everyday and ran marathons. She died from CA at 39.

I was a Navy Corpsman and saw a lot of bad things during the War in Vietnam. Why some and others not? I don't know...

This is a favorite prose I will share with everyone that I think says it all..at least for myself

“To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea… cruising, it is called.

Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about. I’ve always wanted to sail to the south seas, but I can’t afford it.” What these men can’t afford is not to go.

They are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of security. And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine – and before we know it our lives are gone. What does a man need – really need?

A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in – and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment. That’s all – in the material sense, and we know it.

But we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention for the sheer idiocy of the charade.

The years thunder by, The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it, the tomb is sealed. Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life?”

I ride a Gold Wing just about every day, but it might be fun to have a cruiser as well. Can't do sport or sport-touring - had a Concours for three years in between Wings. Twenty minutes or less and my right hand goes numb and tingly, thanks to carpal tunnel syndrome. A forward leaning position won't work for me.

I also ride a wing. The point is that it already has cruise control, hydraulic clutch, antilock brakes... so for us old dudes, it is comfy... and plenty fast! No need for a bunch of aftermarket fixes.

I rode a had a ZX14 between two goldwings... a midlife crisis? Perhaps just missing power and performance? I don't know. But I loved riding it, but after about 200-300 miles, I was worn out! I can easily ride 500-700 on my wing... and still be no worse for wear.

Two old FL's and now a '92 Fat Boy. I had an 883 Sportster in the mix from '88 to '92. I'd like to go back to a Sportster. Very nimble and I like the feet under riding position better. I'm no longer concerned about the Skirtster comments.

I just started looking at motorcycles. I find myself at this point in my life wanting one. It's been many years since I rode a motorcycle and then it was a Street/Trail type Suzuki.

Of course the first thing I started looking at was Harley. I then went to the dealer to just nose and get a catalog. WOW, they are really beautiful. My favorite is the Fat Boy Low.

I then started looking online at all kinds of bikes that I think I could ride comfortably. I looked at cruisers like the Harley and the so called Adventure Touring bikes like the Triumph Tiger Explorer, Super Tenere, Ducati MultiStrada and so on. ALL really nice.

Some of the cruiser types that I like the looks of are the Triumph America, Triumph Speedmaster, Triumph Rocket III Roadster, the CLASSIC Triumph like the Scrambler because it remindsme of the bike my Uncle ride when I was a kid, Moto Guzzi California, BMW R1200GS, Yamaha Raider and Stryker, and several of the VICTORY cruisers. Like I said, LOTS of beautiful bikes out there to look at.

Harley's are just so darn much money as are quite a few others. I wouldn't mind having a Sportster though. One bike that I have liked since seeing one for the first time is the BMW R1200 C. They stopped making them in 2004 and I remember when my best buddy got one from his wife for Christmas one year. Boy that was a beautiful cycle. This was the motorcycle that Tom Cruise rode in one of his action flicks back in those days. I wouldn't mind having one of those motorcycles today. They look like a very comfy machine.


The thing I don't know is what style is the most comfortable to ride. I can't ride anything that has be laying on the tank and stretching for the bars. That pretty much leaves the cruisers and the Adventure Touring cycles that have you pretty upright with your feet underneath you.
Which style have you all found to be most comfortable? I don't think there is much of a chance for me to ever ride 500 miles in a day.

Does anyone have any opinions on the Moto Guzzi cycles like the California? Interesting looking machine but haven't been able to read much about it.

How about posting more pics everyone?? Lets see 'em.

Thanks all.

It's a brand new 2012 but I shimmed, drilled, and adjusted the carb, checked and am adjusting valve clearance, installed the thermobob, and am installing heated grips on a relay. I also installed a sweet top box on my bike. I've also been armoring all the wiring and packing all connections with dielectric grease.

If some of my stuff sells on ebay I'll be putting on panniers. I'm getting this bike ready for an epic adventure, it will be the bike of my dreams in another year or two.

The goal is to not have to wrench on it for as much of the year as possible, with obvious exceptions like oil changes, tires, chain tension etc.

I hate the winter.

Beautiful bike Eric. I like those types of bikes, the "sport" bikes, but I could never ride one. Because my spine is fused and it prevents me from being able to look up, I couldn't even see the road if I were to mount that bike of yours Eric. The bikes that have the riding position where you are all laid down on the tank with arms extended is a no-go for me and it will never change. Besides, I'm too old for one of those anyway, even if I was in peak health. I did almost get a Ninja when I was about 18 or so, back before this spinal deformity fully kicked into gear and started fusing.

One of the more interesting cycles I have ran across and read a bit about is a DUCATI DIAVEL. The only thing I knew about Ducati was that they were made in Italy and they were FAST....oh and everyone that is a fan of Bullet Bikes wants one.

I ran across an article that was doing a test of CRUISER type cycles and this DIAVEL was in the test with 3 other bikes. I thought it was strange because this thing looked nothing like the other 3 and it looked nothing like what I thought a CRUISER is supposed to look like. I have watched several Youtube vids and read a few articles and tests about this DIAVEL and let me tell ya, it is one impressive machine. I can see why lots of people want DUCATI cycles and why they are so expensive.

That Diavel has a system that you can select the kind of handling and performance you want to use based on the kind of riding you are going to do, fascinating stuff. It has 162 horsepower but in certain riding modes you can ride around and only have 100 HP at your disposal, kind of like when you are riding around town. If you go out into the country, you can switch it to another mode and get the FULL 162 Horses. After reading an watching videos about it, it really is an amazing piece of machinery. Too bad it sells for right at $21,000!!!
Those that have them or have participated in a long term test and eval on them, LOVE 'EM. They say there isn't a bike like it anywhere.

Check it out and see what you all think of it. I'd be curious to see what you real motorcycle guys think of it. Would it be something you would own and ride?

Also, what do you all think of the Triumph cycles? When I was a young boy I remember going to visit my DADS brother and he ALWAYS had a Triumph motorcycle. It was more of the CLASSIC looking Triumph instead of the CRUISER type of look. Just curious as to what the opinions are of the Triumph Cruisers that are designed to compete with Harley.

Are the newer Harley's not reliable? I knew the older ones required a lot of work and maintenance, but I didn't know the newer ones were like that.

I probably couldn't afford a new Harley 103. If I got one it would either be USED or a Sportster. Since I am NOT a wrench guy, I don't want something that needs tinkering or work to be able to ride. If I got a USED Harley, say in the last 10 years, or a newer Sportster, are they relatively trouble free or not? If they aren't just hop on and ride and repeat next weekend, I'd probably look to something else.

I do like the Sport Touring or Adventure Touring style cycles like the Ducati HyperStrada, the VStrom, the BMW R1200GS and the Triumph Tiger. I saw one of the new Triumph Tiger Explorers the other day at the mall. WOW, what a sweet cycle. I'd love to try a ride on that one. EXPENSIVE though....almost as much as a NEW HARLEY.

I also like some of the Victory cycles like the Boardwalk.

They have been reliable for a while. Most modern motorcycles, maintenance is more important than the brand. If your not a wrench guy find a good dealer. They will inspect a used bike for you and you can develop a relationship with the service department that can maintain your bike.

I'm not a Harley guy. Not even a little bit (except for the VRSC series bikes...those are pretty sweet). But I can say that Harley riders, even the weekend warrior riders, on a whole, put more miles on their bikes than sport bike riders do. Just look at any motorcycle dealer's used section. Sport bikes all over the place with less than 2K on the clock. Hell, check craigslist and one will find tons of sport bikes with very few miles.

I'm pretty unique in that I owned a 2006 GSX-R1000 for 2 years, and in that 2 years put over 12,000 miles on it. Is that unheard of? Nope. But it's not that common either. Harleys over 12K per owner are a lot more common.

Now, BMW and Goldwing owners have Harleys, sport bikes, and every other type of bike beat in the mileage category. Probably combined. Thems guys RIDE the hell outta their bikes.

What do you all think of the BMW R1200C model? They stopped making them in 2004 I think. I have always like them and thought they were a great looking cycle.

I'd like to hear what others think of them.
Anyone here OWN one now or in the past and can comment?

I really dig the Triumph Tiger as well. That's a sharp bike.

I'm not into supersport bikes or any kind of crotch rocket. I think they're cool but I'd kill myself. I have little restraint with speeding or respect for authority so if I got a Hyabusa or something I would be doing 200 mph here and there.

This is why I have a Suzuki Marauder and a KLR 650. The Marauder tops out at 110-115 and the KLR tops out at 95ish. I can rip around all day just slightly over the posted speed limits having fun and it's been my observation that cops don't bother guys riding a 5-15 over in reasonable places when they're riding ATGATT.

I like the Tiger too. A friend has the 800 and its a a great ride. The only issue seems to be parts availability on the West Coast and limited dealers. The bigger bikes like the Yamaha Tenere are great rides also. When Yamaha has a test ride day give one a go.

For the last 3 years, my bike has been a BMW 1200GS Adventure (the one with the ~10 gal gas tank). My second GS --- thought I was done with big bikes, but it called to me.

I put about 1000 miles/month on it. All weather. Upright riding position. I look for gas about at about 400 miles.

Only issue I have is my short legs.

I have the IMHO the ultimate and motocycle I want. 2012 BMW R1200RT (completely loaded) that was my 70th birthday gift to myself last summer. If you completely enjoy your motorcycle and it is paid for it is the best. Happy and safe riding to all motorcycle riders here at GT.

That could be a mildly interesting bike at 15-20K. Personally, I don't see any justification for the prices they are asking.

I'd love to get my old motorcycle back..........1979 Kawasaki KZ650. Never should have sold it.

Picked up a great one in 2011. For the Grandsons first bike. Solid condition, fast machine. He wants to trade it in for something newer, I said no. Save your pennies and buy a new one without a trade. This is a classic in great shape. Did upgrade the electrics to a KZ750 stator, hub, rectifier and put a solid state ignition on it. Just for reliability. Yes, I saved all the stock parts.

No longer a like to have. I traded the VFR800 and ST1300 in on a Goldwind F6B yesterday. It hadn't even been set up yet, so I'll actually take it home on Tuesday.

A YZ250 - 2 stroke. Whips through gears faster than most can shift. And makes a beautiful screaming sound, and a nice smell to boot.

In 2010 I bought myself a new RT. I'm short so I bought the low suspension version. Even still it's a reach to the ground but I've put 19,000 miles on it and plan on riding it for years to come.

This 04 Ducati Multistrada is my current ride. I am definitely on the prowl for a new bike but I don't know what I want. The brand new zx6r? Maybe a connie? What about a zx14r? Hmmm. Going to demo some bikes soon to figure out what I want next. Ideas?

I love the blue on that bike. Do the rearsets just make it more comfortable for you since they are adjustable? They dont make them for my bike, but im just curious

Honestly the Vortex didn't do much for me. I originally got them because they're more adjustable so I could make them higher. From stock highest setting, there is about an inch difference. If anything they serve as another crash protector and the VERY aggressive peg design makes it easier to hold onto the bike. Also them being all black make it look extra nice. $385 from motomummy.com

Yeah generally you get the rearsets for the adjustability, looks is a side benefit and yeah an aggressive peg will hold onto your boot better. Raising them helps keep your toe from scraping, LOL.
