My true love in life, well it has to be motorbikes. I've always been a biker first and foremost(still love all the cars I've ever had though)

Currently rocking around on my 2013 R1...anyone else got a bike?

Yep, I've got a bike too. Started riding bikes at 18 before I had my drivers license for the car. A Honda CX500C, lovely bike.
I still have it, but it needs a fair bit of work. My current bike is something very different than yours, an Intruder M1800R in silver....

'64 Honda Dream 300 Super Sport (still have one), CB77
'65 Honda Baby Dream 150, C95
'59 Triumph Speed Twin, 5TA
'60 BSA A7 Shooting Star
'73 Suzuki GT380J triple, bought at 6 months old. Sooooo loved it I invested in -
'74 Suzuki GT380L triple, bought new in August of that year
'78 Honda CB750KZ -- b l o o d y awful thing!

Images are of my other obsession that I've been fettling since '08...

Something a little different. It's as much a Harley as trigger's broom was the original broom!

Hi, I am a biker and have been for over 45 years, in this time I have owned every type of bike imaginable from commuters to sports bikes, I currently put comfort at the top of my priority and run a Harley Davidson Road King, it is a great bike for what it was intended, i.e. cruising.
