Okay...now for you bikers...

What is your favorite motorcycle...of the ones you have owned?


Mine, the only one I have ever owned:


A Honda XL175 dirt bike.

OK! What is next, your favorite tractor?

The one I had that I liked, and was the last one, was a 1984 Suzuki 750. Look just like the one here.

1999 Kawasaki Nomad. Wonderful bike. Broke my heart to sell it.

This. 2004 Triumph Daytona 955i. Outstanding machine. Comfortable enough to get me through an Iron Butt ride, and fast enough to hang with (and often pass, depending on rider skill) the more specialized sportbike guys. Here she is in short trip guise:

And here she is 600 miles from home.



I could show you a picture in which she's 1000 miles from home, but the west gives better photo backdrops than the midwest. Sorry midwesterners.

Case(s) in point:

Okay, I'll stop now.

I rode from 1965 to 1986. I had 19 motorcycles during that time 1 Harley Davidson, 2 Suzukis and 16 Hondas. A few of them stood out for various reasons but none was a favorite.

Last time i rode one was back in 1986. It was a Yamaha YZ 175


I guess based on that - it was my favorite.

I have a vstar and I really want a gold wing but just can bring myself to pay the price. But, my favorite is my first which was a 2012 honda cbr250r. That thing was sweet and you could get 80mpg. I may have to get another one!

1989 Honda Hawk GT. Was called a NT650. First production motorcycle with a single sided swing arm. Mine was modded to the gills. CBR forks, 900rr rear shock, big cams and pistons, flat slide carbs. It wasn't as fast as the 4 cylinder sport bikes. By I dusted them all in the twistys. This is a stock photo.

I have a fondness for my first bike,a 1978 Suzuki GS 1000 but I would have to say the favorite bike I have owned was my 1986 Honda V65 Magna.1100cc V4 in a cruiser that would yank the front wheels off the ground in first and second gear at 500+ lbs.
For a cruiser that thing was nasty.

Someone actually stole my husband's Honda XL175, it was a sad day. He replaced it with a 1994 Honda Magna 750 which is my favorite!

Raptorboy, are we going to get to see any actual photos?

88Keys, I've always liked Magnas. At least since Honda took their then superbike engine and built a cruiser around it. My kind of cruiser!

Tom, I bet that was an amazing experience! Do you still ride at all? I have a friend who's won amateur championships. It's funny; everyone says that the track will make you a safer rider, but the two most active track riders I know have broken bones on the track! Never on the street though!

I did a little bit of motorcycle trading a few years back. Good times to buy and sell them 125 and 250 CC to first time buyers. Favorite one, however, was the 2 Cycle Yamaha R5 that I restored and rode around for a bit.

I love the sound and smell of a 2 stroke "giant-killer".

And the other favorite for running around town... the 125 CC Kawasaki Eliminator. 90 MPG is a good sales pitch when gas was 4 bucks a gallon!

Never owned one. Every time I think I'd like one I think of all the guns I could buy with the money. :guns::shooter:
