Oh Ratso! My server and I can't upload my picture.

I ride a Suzuki Shogun. It is a 110 and barely even qualifies as a motorcycle. But it is mine and I love it.

I don't trust the fruitloops on the street, but I used to have a few of these. A sleeved down 200, a "mod to the max" 250 and a 500. Ran a honda 200x with green plastic for ice racing.

Nope. It's a Vespa PX150, updated a bit and still manufactured in their India factory where they were made for 25 years.

It is a 4-speed (twist the left grip) with a top speed of about 65mph. It is a two stroke, oil injected machine with 10" wheels, electric start and 5 intake ports.

Physically, the all steel body is identical to the old Vespa PX150 (which they are making again because of demand for retro cycles).

Go to www.genuinescooters.com and take a look at them. If you choose the "accessories" option, you will see a red one with a sidecar. I have the sidecar on order.

It's State Hwy 128 that winds along the Colorado North and East of Moab. Nice little 40 mile side road. Only disadvantage...it ends at I-70 (yecch!)

The upside is, you take the Interstate west for about an hour and pick up Hwy 24 south to Hanksville and that will take you toward Capitol Reef Nat'l Park and Hwy 12 through Dixie Nat'l Forest.

12 is one of THE best bike roads anywhere! It has many spots where you can't pull over because there's a steep dropoff on both sides of the road!

1996 Ducati 900 Supersport SP

Just a few minor mods... High carbon fiber cans, jet kit, and an open top K&N air filter. On the highway, I can't hear the exhaust over the intake "honk!" And at WFO, it sounds like a NASCAR V8!

I haven't got it yet, but this

is identical what I am expecting to arrive in the next couple of weeks.

I know that it's a serious step down from what I *used* to ride (KZ1100, CB750F), but for to and from work, I don't need any more. It's also been 10 years since I straddled a 2 wheeler, so I figured it's best to re-start low and slow.

Makes perfect sense. "A man's got to know his limitations."

Those Helixes are automatics, right? No dealing with shifting while balancing while turning.

My V-Max, here in the UK. It's a 1991 USA import, so full power.

Laser Race can, one off stainless downpipes (headers to you), slab yokes, digital speedo, 6 pot harrison calipers all round, GSXR 750 17" wheels and it has stage 3 fitted. I usually ride it as a single seat, but don't have any pictures in that set up.
