Show Us Your Motorcycles!!

As many of you might know, my loves include motorcycles and bowhunting. I was just curious which other members are into motorcycles and what do you ride. Even if you don't currently ride but used to, I'd like to see what you rode back in the day. Post 'em here.

Here is my current street ride. It's a BMW R1100S

I had a red '71 just like that. I bought it new too. Sure wish I had the foresight to keep it like you did. :roll:

This was my first road bike. A Triumph Thunderbird 650. Registered as a 1980 under a reconstruction title. It was parts from 58, 59, 60, 61 and several aftermarket. Rode it from 1980 to 1991.

My '68 Beemer.
This is my "cold dead fingers" bike. I don't ride much anymore, but I have sold bikes in the past only to regret it.
Best,
Mike

John, I've heard those Jawas were a little cantankerous but as reliable as a tank. Great old bikes. :big afro:
