Physical therapy consisted of pulling the clutch on this in the shop.
I join the sportbike brigade.
My ride for the last fifteen years.
The new one, seems nothing changes.

Prepare for the new winner of the odometer contest. That CB1100F isn't going to STOP rolling.

No picture but believe it or not my first bike was a Honda trail 90, I rode the wheels off of that bike and had a ton of fun, then to a 150 and it just never quit after that, much like all the rest of us I imagine. Next thing you know here we are many year later and still vexed with our motorcycles. As it should be.

I wish I had grown up with bikes... i grew up scared to death if em. Dad used to tell me over and over about how he broke his leg in seven places on one and they were bad.

Years later (only about 3 years ago, actually!) he finally tells me the whole story... he was riding on the back of a bike and the driver popped a wheelie and dumped the bike on Dad. I'da prolly got on years sooner had I known what had actually happened to him.

Bill and Suzie's trip across the country on Route 66 from Kansas to the Santa Monica pier really got me thinkin' about it

A serious case of jealousy!
