    The last day or so, I keep seeing that thread "What bicycle do you ride?" and keep wanting to replay with "one with a motor" :rofl:

    So here is mine:

    From left to right:
    My baby, an old 1983 GPz750, a recently acquired 2001 CBR600F4i, and a 1999 Kawasaki Drifter.

    Hey Lurch, how do you like the Drifter?

    @pig: that is seriously tidy, I like.

    Seems this thread was more popular that I thought it'd be :D

    Love the big Harleys. Not a Harley man myself, but I don't bag them as some may; I certainly appreciate them.

    Yeah but that Drifter is way cool. I like to say about Harleys, "I'll never want a Harley until I own one!" :rolleyes:

    2010 Buell Ulysses XT. I love this bike. I rode it to Wisconsin after I bought it and got Erik Buell to sign it. I hope that EBR makes a bike similar to this before I ride the wheels off it. I also own a HD FXDXT, but I have hardly ridden it since buying the Buell in 2010 so I'll have to dig up a photo of it.

    Here you go. If you can't tell, I ride my bikes long distances and as often as I can. I've done several Iron Butt rides both on the Buell and on the Harley. The Harley is where I take my internet handles from. It is an FXDXT which translates to Super Glide Sport and is part of the Dyna line, therefore my handle DynaSport. It is a 2000 model I bought in 2003. As you can also probably tell, I don't trade bikes. I buy and ride and keep. Nothing wrong with trading often, it's just not me. It took me YEARS to move from my Canon 20D. I may be shooting with my G5 when everyone else is on the G20.

    Meet Daisy the Daytona. She's my 2010 SE model and I've had her from new. She's a bit of a flirt and still turns a lot of heads when we're out.

    I initially planned to keep her for 3 years with the knowledge that she'll probably be my last road bike. After 30 years of biking, I'm not quite ready to close this chapter yet, so we'll probably see our 5th year anniversary together. My son is looking to start motocross next year and maybe I'll be tempted by a little mud-plugger of my own?

    2005 Harley Sportster 883L. (My husband's Dyna is on the left.) I think I've got the only 883 tricked out for touring. And that's my Domke F-5XC strapped to the top of my tour pack for easy access!

    I have a Honda NTV, a 650cc bike with shaft drive. Nothing spectacular, but reliable and good for very long trips. I have no car, ride summer and winter, and need a bike that will get me wherever I need to be. This one is it for me. I mostly use it for long journey's; 10.000+ km for a month painting in Noway. and stuff like that.

    web_5071.


    And for those concerned about the size of camera's and gear: just for once, try oil painting during a trip... You will never complain again. Here is my bike fully loaded for a month on the road; at the back my tent and camping gear, the two blue packages are painting gear and canvases, and the tank bag holds my photo gear.

    Love the ole Honda. Reminds me of my beloved, departed sv650:
    SV650j.
    SV650.
    SV650e.

    Probably the most fun I've ever had on a motorcycle.

    In my picture above, we were on a 3 week cross country (5,000 mile) trip last summer. All of my clothes for the trip were in the tour pack. Saddlebags held rain gear, cold weather gear, binocs, ipad/chargers, and other necessities. The more I travel by bike, the less gear I seem to need.

    ETA: but I did have 2 camera bodies, 4 lenses, 2 chargers and extra batteries, and a mini tripod (that I never use).

    That's too bad. The Hammer is a pretty cool bike. You have a camera,right? :wink:
