Very nice! I did a Utah/AZ/CO trip a few years ago, loved it, went through Bryce, Arches and Zion, great country to ride in! I always bring a map, just leave the watch at home!

Last month I sold my last motorcycle (sob! sob!) a 1973 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport that I have had since 1976. It has been shipped off to London, England to another enthusiast with 9 other M-Gs. Loved that bike!

Norm, I can almost feel your pain. The reason I ended up with my first R bike was because Pro Italia sold their Moto Guzzi California Classic 1 day before I got there. The 02 R1150 was sitting in their pre-owned section. The rest is history...

Rokon RT-340, want another Triumph Hurricane!

Still have a Rokon RT-340, this is a single wheel drive model with a 40 HP SACHS two-stroke engine, infinitely variable transmission, and pull-start.
Incredibly capable in the dirt, easily goes places other bikes cannot.
ISDT winner back in the day.
This is NOT the two wheel drive type.
Barely road legal only due to predating most of the nanny-state trash.

Want another Triumph Hurricane!
Foolishly sold mine many years ago to raise funds needed to launch a business.
Though I would just buy another later on.
Not hard to find, but the price has gone nuts, like $15,000.00 or more for a good one nuts.

Have had many British bikes, should have kept the old 441 Victor too.
Even if I might not be able to kick it over anymore.

With prices the way they are now, I may just have to put together another Chopper/Bobber.
Not cheap but far less expensive than originals.

Twin-Cam Hemi, Webers, Headers, Overdrive, Disc brakes, and no emissions equipment to spoil it all. These are gonna be FUN rides!

New addition to the stable

Just brought home a 2004 Boxer Cup Replika. Rare bike #193 out of 300 built. Made rarer by the fact that previous owner never used it on the track. It was detailed after each ride! Makes a nice stable mate to my 2003 Roxter Edition80. Hope the wife will let me keep both...

Love that Boxer Cup bike. It is a collector for sure - but you HAVE to ride it like it was meant to be ridden.

Re-living my mispent youth

So it was the summer of 1983 and all the military guys around me had hot bikes...we were stationed in San Antonio. Never had a bike nor ever rode, but given weather and wide open Texas rodes, I wanted one badly.

The hottest bike to have at that time was the newly introduced Honda V4 Interceptor series. I was finally able to land a deal (for list price) up in Austin and purchased an '84 Interceptor VF750F on a Saturday.

Well, life is funny... and 240miles and a week later on the following Friday night an unlicensed driver ran a red light, hit and totalled my bike in an intersection. No broken bones on my part, but I was thrown quite a distance and definately was bruised and battered for some time. I didn't have the gumption to get back on a bike.

Well, not for 30 years anyway. Recently traded a 1994 Alfa Romeo 164LS with converted 5sp manual tranny for a 1984 Honda Interceptor VF1000F with 28,468 miles on it. Prestine bike. A friend had too many bikes and needed a car, and well...being an Alfa owner, I had too many Alfas (is that possible?). I didn't need a bike, but he just happen to have this particular '84 Interceptor that I just couldn't ignore, even though I tried... spitting image of my old bike, albeit with an exta 250cc.

Just got my motorcycle endorsement on my WA license and I look forward to getting familiar once again with these excellent bikes.

Who says you can't go back?

May I suggest a website for your new VFR (VFRDiscussion.com), I am a VFR nut, almost as bad as I am an Alfa nut, so it is nice to know that someone else has the same issues I do...

1975 Honda 400 Four Super Sport

I bought it 23 years ago from the original owner with 5800 miles on it. It had been sitting for years in his garage. It now has 6800 miles and I have not ridden it in 14 years. Everything is original except tires.

Funny/Sad follow up...

Is that if I ever decide to sell the '84 Interceptor... I will get 2-3K+ more $$ than I could ever expect from the bastardize (remember manual tranny convert) 164LS. Sad commentary, really if you think about it.

No, not thinking about selling the bike yet...heavens no.... though now that I'm in a 'bike mind set' my mind starts to wander and I'm looking at the 2007 VFR800 25th Anniversary Edition and it has me tempted. VTEC engine,, EFI, linked braking system, ABS, Xenon headlights, single swing axle, and has the original paint scheme - Red, White & Blue (GBA). Very slick!... except for the price of admission....



PS: GBA - God Bless America
