I started riding in 1974 at age 23 on a "slightly used" 1974 H-D FX, I learned to ride on a fully dressed 1967 FLH on dirt at a dog race track.
  • '74 H-D FX-kick start only.
  • '74 XL-1000 ironhead Sportster
  • '73 H-D FLH ElectraGlide (bobbed)
  • '83 H-D XR-1000
  • '72 H-D FLH,stripped down to look like SuperGlide.
  • Early '84 FXRP-"Stripped down cop bike"
See the 'Images' in my gallery(under my avatar) for some of the Harleys.

As for the metric bikes I've owned:
  • a '78 Kawasaki Z1-R
  • another Z-1 forget what year.
  • 650 Yamaha twin
  • '82 Honda V45 Magna-my 1st water cooled bike & intro to V-4 motors.
  • '83 Yamaha Venture -one of the first 1200 imported into USA,another great V-4.
  • Yamaha 750 Virago
  • 250 cc Ducati Monza Single

Started o. A 450 Honda, '71. Them purchased a Low Rider in '99, a Road King in 2000 a CVO Orange V Rod '05, then traded that for an '09 Ultra Glide Classic and just purchase a '05 CVO V Rod last month. I love being back on a V Rod.

I'll leave out the many metrics and start with the Harleys. 1st was a 99 Softail Custom (Evo) 2nd was a 2004 Heritage, liked the looks but thats about it. In 2008 I went to test ride a Dyna Street Bob and luckily for me I rode what is now my 07AW first. Love it still
