I ride the Triumph the most, but I have a Suzuki GS-500 that I'm pretty fond of too. <g>
All my other bikes just sit these days.

The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.
Old bike problems...Like I said I have an HD Sturgis low rider.
The last three times I rode These things happened. #1 On the interstate I suddenly find my front brake lever is no longer on the bike.
#2 The next ride my clutch goes so far out of adjustment I had to kill the motor. #3 Saturday, riding through the mountains I loose my rear brakes completely.
Now some might think I don't take care of the bike. That's not true. Some might think I'm just a crappy mechanic. Also not true. While it is a Harley, it was built when AMF was running Harley and didn't build the best bikes around. But I think that anything that vibrates like this bike really can't stay together.
The speed limit was 55 back then and it's quite nice at 55. However at 75 things get interesting.
Oh ya. I was at Bonneville last month and on the 18th a Hayabusa that didn't look like all that much was done to it (I have x ray vision) ran what I think was 219 mph but not a record.
