My Other Bikes
« on: September 10, 2014, 06:14:13 am »
While I love my SuperT.  I've got a couple other bikes in my Garage….

My Ducati Diavel.  I love this bike for the road.  I tell all my old racing buddies like me whose lower back and wrists bother them, this is the old-man's sportbike.  Comfortable, Tons of power, and handles decent in the canyons;



Then there is my "Modern Classic" A 1998 YZF750.  Picked this up last year. Was feeling a bit nostalgic, thinking of my racing days. I wanted one of these back in the day, but it wasn't competitive as the "new" generation GSXRs had come out and were better.    Found this one which needed very little. Just some normal maintenance items and one fairing.  So hard to find "classic" sportbikes that don't have "custom" (crappy) paint jobs…Still needs a few more VERY minor things…

I love the YZF 750.
You are correct, very hard to come by in 'decent' shape, and lower miles.

I have a Stratoliner Deluxe. With the custom paint and chrome it gets put away in November and stay out of snow, salt, and sand until April or may.  So I got the Tenere to ride when the liner is stored.  However it rides sooooo nice.

My 1999 XJR 1300. It has 51300m on the clock. After she has done many years of all year round commuting I have just had her re sprayed and powder coated and a new exhaust system. Spent more on her than she's worth on  paper, but well, you know?





I also have a 2008 FJR as, but you all know what they look like. ;)

Very cool bike, grumpy!  Too bad we don't get many bikes like that over here.  I'd say the respray and exhaust were money well spent.

The current fleet.



I've owned a lot of bikes, but everything now is dirt capable.  I've learned over the years what makes me happy.

I love the XJR...too bad they don't bring them here.
At any rate, there's a guy in Ireland that will go out, buy one used for you, get it ready for your trip in Europe, and even store it for you.  Technically one can be improted to CAnada if 15yrs or older...
