Ive been looking around for bikes for a few months and I now know what im getting. 2013 Harley Davidson softail slim. 103ci of pure fun, gonna get new air cleaner, pipes and get rid of the front boards and go with standard forward controls. Ape hangers and the wife said I have to get a two up seat and a small sissy bar. This time next month I will post pictures of my firat brand new vehicle and I wont have a payment. Been saving for a while and dont care to have a bike payment. Mine will be flat black and a blast to ride, cant wait.

Sold this ugly thing. It'll be gone in a few days:

And bought this one for my wife. But, since she's preggo right now, I'll be riding it for a bit. It's a 1991 Honda CBR 600 in excellent condition. Seriously, it looks like its never been out of the garage and never been uncovered.

Had an F2 as my first bike, great all around bikes for what they are and what they cost!

My first bike was an F2! I absolutely loved tgat bike. Id take it back over a newer CBR or R series. I liked the seat better. I should have never sold it " Stupid stupid stupid"

Loved my F2 as well but am infatuated with my 900RR, same weight, loads more power, more capable.. Only thing I liked better was the F2 is a little more comfy.
Still, the F2 is a fantastic bike!

I told my wife is ever one came up for sale I would be buying it. Shes not a fan. We build and revive vintage Jap bikes, so she finds new sport bikes apalling, astetically, and doesnt see the engineering aspect.

At least a week or two of cross country therapy with some "Open Road Freedom!"

Well monday morning i was cut off on my bike and was just told yesterday that my bike was gonna be totaled. Roadrash on my hands and right arm and some on my left sholder and my right knee is bruised and a little scraped up. But i traded my sportster in on a new softail slim but now that my sportster is totaled i will get twice the amount i was gonna get on trade in. So that works out in my favor and will have my new bike around the 18th of june or so. My 1911 stayed holstered right untill i stood up from laying my bike down and i think i slid on my ambi saftey and the grip for a little bit. So now i have to replace those and the magwell. Gotta love ******* people in cars not looking out for bikes.
