Default Re: When did you start the motorcycle hobby???

I started when I was about 22 years old with a Yamaha Maxium 400. Had stint where I didnt have any bikes for a while but the love of motocycles never left me. Since then Ive had a BMW R90S, Yamaha FZ600, Triumph Thunderbird Sport, CZ 250, Suzuki DR640, Suzuki GS500, Yamaha Road Star Silverado, Honda Valkyrie, Victory Kingpin, Suzuki DL1000 VStrom, etc.

I generally dont keep one bike very long as I like to try new things, but my latest bike the DL1000 really is a great ride. It does everything very well. Its comfortable for day long rides; its plenty fast, really fun in the twisties and can hit the trails and fire roads should you have a mind to.

My wife and I ride almost exclusively two up and although she misses the comfort of the big Valkyrie we have a lot of fun on the new Suzuki. Whats next? Who knows, but its always fun shopping for new bikes. I told my wife before we got married that I will always have a least one bike in the garage, maybe more. Some day if Im ever too old and decrepit to ride Ill still have a bike sitting in the garage just so I can go out once in awhile, fire it up and remember the good old days.
