On again - off again - 0n again

I feel like I'm on a Merry-go-round. I bought a bike, rode for a year. Got bored and bought a Harley, rode for a year. Got scared, sold Harley and bought another bike, rode for a year. You guessed it....got another Harley. Anyone want a black carbon Fuji Pro size 58 in Chicago area? Oh wait, Dr Jeckyll may want it again soon....

Luxury problems.

I've thought about getting a motorcycle again but, for now, I am content to just make 'Brooooom Broooom' noises on my bike.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

A card in the spokes makes a good motorcycle sound......

Motorcycles are good too!!! I have 4 motorcycles in my garage right now. One I call my wifes, as it is a Kawasaki Voyager XII for touring on. Then I have my KTM 250SX for my single track riding (great workout too), and then I have a xr100r for my oldest (shorter) daughter and a ttr125L for my younger (taller) daughter. Soon to add a 2002 Suzuki SV650S to the stable in a few months.

Then I have to figure out the times to get to ride them all and my 2007 Jamis.

Keep both, sell the car.

When you want a nice quiet ride, burn off a little steam, or to get a better view of things around you, ride the Fuji, otherwise you have the Harley.

Yeah I know how you feel. I have always had motorcycles ranging from motocross to cruisers to sportbikes and back to a cruiser now (Victory Jackpot). I love to follow up a bike ride with a MC ride to the beach...it's therapeutic. I think that there is a place for both in your stable IMO

My latest scooter is a 100th anniversary Harley Dyna Sport. Totally impractical, but cool.
