Your favorite, current, first whatever.  I think I need one this summer. 

Did you show me a picture of a Yamaha XS650 that a family member owned?

OK, here is the most recent.

I've had a 2011 BMW G650GS, traded that for a 2014 Ducati Monster 797.  The 797, I totaled in September 2015.  Replaced with a 2015 Monster 821 Stripe.  Sold that one to my gun store friends nephew down in Florida back in June or July of 2021.  Bought a 2021 Ducati Scrambler Nightshift a month later.  Traded that one for what you see now, a 2021 Monster Plus, in Aviator Grey w red wheels (has full Terminogni exhaust, removed the horrendous tail thing, plus a few other things changed).

That is sharp looking!

a thread I can't participate in

I think everyone needs a motorcycle they just don't realize that they need a motorcycle

If I was to get a motorcycle, I would go for a classic old Honda from the late 60s or early 70s CB350/CB450.  My problem is that I have ZERO self control.  If it has a throttle, I will run it WFO and I would end up as a wet spot on the road as some point.   I used to ride a buddy's bike back in the day and I went into a corner way too hot.  Luckily, I just ran off the road into a field and kept the bike upright and intact.  Rode is slowly back home, got off and have never been on a bike again since the 1990s

I put a lot of miles on that bike, in orange, back in the 70's. A lot of dirt road miles and camping. Prolly my favorite bike.

Braap means braap!  

Braaap! Braaap is a verb. To braaap is to ride with aggression and flow, especially through corners and over obstacles. ... The verb braaap can apply to any action performed with flowy aggression: “The SAT verbal test was so easy — I was just like braaap!”Mar

Yup.  I was just noting that the pic was taken in 1992.  So young back then.  :D

I wish I had a motorcycle. 

I do and I don't.  Everyone I know primarily out in the world with a motorcycle has had at least one bad accident that they were hospitalized from.  Every. Single. One.   

I am not a fearful person, but the odds seem pretty favorable to limited capacity to enjoy life if I were to get one at this stage in life and have that every-motorcyclist-I know experience.  I respect those odds.

Duly noted, RG.  If I had one, I may only ride it once or twice a month, which, is not enough to attain good riding skills. I would NOT want a motorcycle to interfere with my cycling.
