Re: Current Bike

I have my lone horse in the stable right now if you are talking about street bikes, 1991 EX500. Bought it a year ago have put 10k on it in the year. I drive it to work everyday I can plus all the rides for fun and to visit inlaws. I actually drive it more than my truck.
Other than the EX I have a 2006 Honda 450er atv that I did race XC with a few years ago. Now it sits in the car port with a sad look on its face. But I do start it once a week and ride it down the road. lol

Re: Current Bike

I currently own 9 bikes. The EX500 is the last one I bought. It is my 41st motorcycle.

Re: Current Bike

Does the Ex500Chopper count in this category since it only has the engine and wiring harness of the EX everything else is from other bikes and brands

Re: Current Bike

i traded this



for this



the super sports gave me a sore back and shoulder plus i blew the motor lol i had just rebuilt the whole bike including sorting out all the rust etc but fixing the engine would have been more expensive.

Re: Current Bike

1999 EX500, only been riding it for a week or two now. It needs some matinence, but that shouldn't be too much of an issue to get done.

Re: Current Bike

The EX500 is my riding machine. I have an XR250R dirtbike, that might fit my kids when theyre in high school! That thing is so high off the ground I have to tiptoe it... I also have an XS1100 with a sidecar, my lust/hate relationship.

Re: Current Bike

My current bike is a 2014 Rocket III Touring but plan to keep the Ninja long after the rest of the family are done with it. It has seen beginner duty with the estranged wife and three youngest boys. None of them know how to RIDE it though. They have taken it around Denver mostly and the occasional road trip into the mountains and one trip to Sturgis. However, I ride it close to ludicris speed when no one is looking. The little Ninja comes alive once the tac needle wakes up...

Current ride: 2014 Triumph Rocket III Touring; 2007 EX 500R; 1981 XS650SH in resto
