Very nice!

We had a Harley once. It was a 1976 Sportster, Iron head, 999 cc, rigid frame, kick start, LOUD, piece of s**t! Don't get me wrong, it was pretty to look at, but it was literally a pain in the butt! We bought it for $3500, put $15,000 in it, then sold it for $4500. It definitely lived up to the old saying, "ride it a mile, push it the rest".

We now have a 2005 Honda VTX 1800R. We LOVE it! Turn a key, push a button, and go! Never any issues. Just fun!

If I can EVER figure out how to put a pic in a post, I'll post up some pics.

So this is the "new" Honda. Please excuse the white truck, we no longer have it.

Congrats! I have a 2003 100th Anniversary Ultra Classic that I bought new while stationed overseas in the USAF. The fun part of ownership is customizing it to your taste and the nice people you'll meet on the road!

Looks good, Zhanna! I'm always jealous of motorcycle riders. We do a charity event called the Ride for Kids each year. My daughter rides in a side car as one of the events "stars". My wife and other family members have ridden on the back of bikes in the past. Good stuff and raises money for a good cause (Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation).

I had one on a 79 750 Suzuki.......... even had the tall windshield, it was nice jdadoug

That's cool!

I love riding on the back of the motorcycle! It's the only time I don't have to actually DO anything, but hang on!

I can certainly understand and agree with that. I grew up on two-stroke enduro's. Spent my fair share kick-starting them.

Even though I have a dual-sport now, I can't ever imagine going back to anything without an electric start.

Mine is a 2009 Harley Ultra Classic. Installed the detachable Tour Pack kit to make it look like a Street Glide when I want. Put the Tour Pack on when I need the storage room. Wife prefers to ride with the Tour Pack on.
