    I like the Suzuki Hayabusa, they're beautiful and wicked fast.

    For what purpose? A crotch rocket if you want to get somewhere fast, a Harley if you want to get there comfortably in style, a motocross bike for playing in the mud, or a enduro for a mix of all the above.

    That would be a personal preference. You're going to get the same "Chevy vs Ford" argument here.

    I grew up in a biker family, as did my wife (which is how we met when we were kids) our fathers rode together and would never touch anything if it didn't have the Harley Davidson name on it.
    Me personally, I love the look of a Harley, but I hate the ride. I currently ride a 2000 Suzuki Bandit 1200s. Great for long distance riding, and it will get out of its own way when I hit the throttle.

    I personally like the ducati/triumph style bikes, just because im not a big fan of harleys and choppers.

    Wrong section. This has nothing to do with aks or SKS.

    My brother gave me a basket case sportster, so I am going to spend some time this spring putting it together. Of course, that means it will cut into my AR fund....

    Gonna run it stock, when I get done. I figure it's going to run me a few hundred to get it done, then my wife is going to take it away from me.

    Of you're looking at all name bend Harley part or "screamin' eagle" parts.. you're going to ay a lot more then a few hundred. That was the other reason I stayed away from Harley. I looked at an 1989 sportster just before I bought my Bandit. It reminded me of my fathers nd I really wanted it bad. Thankfully my father reminded me how much he dumped into his and only received 1/3 of his investment when he sold it.

    Not really. I have every thing I need, including the wiring harness. All I'm going to be buying is the tires.

    Then I guess you're in luck. Lol. I always wanted to pick up a basket case, but with my luck I'd be missing parts or it would be a box of mismatched parts. I'm not broke but I definitely don't have the funds for a commitment like that.
    Good luck with it and post some pics on your progress.

    Cleaning the garage out this next weekend, setting up my workbench and getting ready to pick it up and start in a couple weeks, if all goes well. It won't be a weekend and I'm done. I'm nowhere near as nutty as he is about them. (The one he's keeping is a 35k custom.)

    I need to get a spot cleared in the garage also. Recently I came across the very first dirtbike I had as a kid. Picked it up as a project for my son. (I'm going to secretly relive my childhood through him). When I found it, I felt like a little kid again and had to have it.

    I prefer a Harley. I sold my sportster in 1996. I bought a Yamaha Virago a year later. A very nice shaft driven bike. Sold it s few years later when I became a father.
