    I had a good time at Bike Week, but a little depressing. I went a few years ago and also about 6 years. There are way less vendors, bikers, and sponsors out there now. While it's still a lot of bikes, it's a lot less than the other times I've been. I enjoyed riding some new bikes from Suzuki, Harley, and Yamaha. It was sad that Triumph, aprilia, KTM, or Ducati decided not to attend. Seems like a lot of audience to ignore in one place.

    Took me approximately 8 months to become completely obsessed with bikes. Just rode the Duc to work and it's 32 degrees outside. And I have this in my garage, 1982 Yamaha Virago. Complete teardown and custom build, going to be a street-fighter mixed with cafe kind of build. Front end is from a 2003 R1.

    Yeah I've been following that build too. I've been trying to not read too much into how people are doing their builds, I'd rather just learn for myself so I don't end up with a cookie-cutter final product.

    Exactly. Sometimes it is nice to see a neat idea and take something away from it though. Hoping to start the build on a 1970's yamaha RD400 for my son soon

    Thought I would bring this thread out of the depths again because I took a picture of my bike in front of my Supra today, thought it was appropriate!

    I'm hoping that if I leave them alone in the driveway long enough they'll mate and produce some kind of super mutant boatorcycle.

    Sold the GSXR 750 yesterday. I'm a little sad, but I sold it for the same price I bought it after 3 yrs of ownership. That is a first for me.

    Now, motorcycle shopping time. If I can swing it, maybe the new Hyperstrada. They are kind of pricey though and since they just came out, no deals yet.

    It's a lot like being a boat owner. They say "two great days" but they always leave out all the fun shopping days between.
