Return to Jim's home page
I've been riding motorcycles since I was 15 years old back in 1973, ever since Paul Gallagher let me crash his Honda Trail 90 on some wet grass in back of his house. I've ridden a little dirt, but am a street bike guy. Only owned one cruiser and these days lean towards standards. Bikes I've owned in rough chronological order include: Suzuki TS185, Yamaha RD400, Yamaha Radian, Suzuki VX800, Aprilia Falco, Honda ST1100, Moto Guzzi Norge, Buell Lightning XB9SX, Kawasaki Vulcan Classic 1500, Ducati Multistrada, Buell Lightning XB9SX (another one), BMW R1150RS, Buell Lightning XB9SX (another one). I'm pretty happy with second generation Buells these days, the ones with a Harley engine but with fuel in frame rather than the early trellis frame jobbers. Never have owned a 12 and like my 9s. Got a 12 you want to sell me?
Anyway, here's a index to a bunch of ride reports, and further down are links to random pages about motorcycle stuff.
