Stopped by the dealership, and I really like the looks of the cb 1000, also like the street triple r. Then I stepped out in the garage and was happy to see the bike I picked up on the fall. This is the one I like today:

And I own it.

Probably the same thing it meant when I bought my first BMW at 22.

Same here, I like several new bikes but the one that's paid for and is just as much of fun sits in the garage. Also, if it begins to feel dated, I break out the R90s.





I also stopped by a dealership yesterday and sat on the new bagger GW, $20K . The new FJR wasn't there but it's up there too. The next inline was a MotoGuzzi Stone around $8K. Then there was a 72 MG Ambassador on display , that's when I got back on my R90 and rode the rest of the afternoon.

Considering I bought a brand new mini bike with basically the same motor for $500 shipped, it seems a little steep. You can get an AWD 450 Christini for $6995!?

Team FX discount price is US$3995 ex factory if you make a reservation now!

I don't know if it's an all out typo, or if the accidentally let slip something about their next-gen "top secret" bike, but right now their front page says:

"Freeway – 250cc 150lb…need I say more?"

That could be a ton of fun.

They look intriguing, but they have been taking reservation for a long time and don't see to have delivered any production bikes. For people in the AR15 world it's a bit like the Shrike.

That said I would be ALL OVER the Freeway if it transitions from vaporware to reality.

Damn. Love that visibility!

The dude's got it mostly covered. Fullface, hi-viz bike...and chopper/bobber thing. Maybe even louder than hell.

I want the snow to melt (yes, I live in Minnesota)..and I want my ribs to finally heal. Any bike would be fine.
