This is my 1996 KTM Duke 3rd Edition.



I will probably sell it soon and replace with something more off-road capable. Maybe a DR400Z SE or DL650.

Past: '88 Spider
Present: '69 GTV, '67 GT Jr.

1975 Kawasaki H2 - the last of the 3 cylinder, 2 cycle Kawasakis. When I was a kid, this was the most common motor in SCCA D-Sport Racing class. I bought the bike because I love the sound. Like 3 250 dirt bikes battling it out!

FX, Man. My brother has an FLH, it's beautiful and comfortable, but I'm an FX kind of guy. With my leather and tool bag behind me bungeed to my sissybar/guitar rack, it's like sitting on a real comfortable easy chair that thumps and vibrates and gets you down the road in fine style.
I have to re-wire it tomorrow before I go, there's only 5 wires on it and I've found that after they catch on fire for the 7th time and you duck tape the remains together yet again, the point comes when you SHOULD put new wires. Duct tape can only do so much. I need to replace my baling wire exhaust clamps too. I hate losing parts. Oh yeah, sounds like my Alfa!!

Bikes

Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic (FLHTCUI)

I've ridden through all the lower 48 states on this bike in addition to a seperate coast-to-coast (California-Georgia) ride and border-to-border ride (Mexico-Canada). Some call it a "Geezer-Glide" 'cause it's like a land barge with 2 wheels for us more mature individuals who need our creature comforts traveling the highways and byways of the good 'ole USofA--satellite radio, CB, CD, cell phone, GPS. Riding the Harley is like riding reliable nostalgia.

In my past I've owned a new '74 GTV 2000 and a new '85 Spider. I really miss the Alfas...my son drives a '72 GTV.

Oh, I just sold my Honda GL1800A as I wasn't putting enough miles on it. Too fast, too furious. But, I'll be replacing it with a Spider S4

The Geezer-Glide overlooking the Pecos River (Yeah, I'm also a chromaholic with latent chromasexual tendencies--the bike's probably gained a few pounds from the chrome, but it looks so kewl)

I used to have one of these (mine was red).
When my kids have grown up I'm going to get a Ducati. In the meantime, I'm looking for a twinshock Honda XL250S, early '80s vintage.
Up until about 2 years ago I also had a 1970 Vespa 50SS which my sister bought new - regret selling it! (great old scooter - Dellorto carb, Veglia Borletti instruments !!!)

A 2004 Vespa ET4 (daily driver),

and a 1985 Piaggio Si (which is kept in CT) - so this isn't the actual bike, but it's very similar. Was riding it last weekend.

Only Italian bikes do it for me. In Italy i still have an 84' Vespa PK 50cc modified with a 100cc kit.

I would love to get my hands on the sexiest bike in the world though, the MV Agusta F4, forget Ducatis!!!!!!

Current: 89' Milano Gold(sold)
Next: 164 S

Be warned though, Alfas can have a strange effect on owners; ‘Alfaholic’ a recognised condition among car enthusiasts

I test drove one of those, the 1st edition I believe, as a 19 year old in '69 in Hawaii. Scared the hell out of me, but what a rush Never saw a frame flex so much until I test drove the Duetto Spider later that morning!

Right now have a 92 Harley Softtail Springer w/72K on it. Bought it new.
Would love to find a '67 BSA Clubman Goldstar and a '65 Honda Super 90, my first bike.

Get out there and [B][SIZE="4"]DRIVE ![/SIZE][/B]

Hi,

does this qualify for this thread? It's not really a motorcycle, it's more of
a scooter, with seat belts and safety cell.

It draws waaayyy too much attention, but it's a blast to drive.
I really like driving this thing around San Diego's North County.


Best regards


Hans
