    I have been riding since I was 16. Current bike is a '98 GL1500SE.

    yes. The Honda rider helped pull me out. I was spent trying to pull the KTM free from the mud.

    I used to enjoy riding motorcycles, but sold my last one 21 years ago. I've had a 250cc Zundapp, 305cc Yamaha, 400cc Honda, 650cc Honda Silver Hawk, 1200cc Honda Aspencade, and R80RT BMW, in that order. I never went more that 50 miles from home on a bike until I got the Aspencade. I made a couple of trips from Dallas to Port Aransas on it, and I went from Dallas to Quantico, VA, for a 10 week training course, and on weekends from New Jersey into Pennsylvania, etc. On the BMW, I made one trip from Dallas to Colorado Springs, CO, and on the return trip, made a little side trip up Pike's Peak. They're a lot of fun, but incredibly dangerous. I figure I was just fortunate to never get hurt much by a bike.

    I have a KTM 250XCW, my son (10) rides a KTM 65SX and my wife rides a KTM 200XCW, all two-strokes. My son and I race the local desert series. Here is a few pics of me from a ride early this spring in the mountains:

    I never had any desire to do any racing, but trail riding off road, a little minor hill climbing, and such were a great way to spend a nice day. That looks like some pretty places to ride.

    That's the only thing that kept me from ever owning one.

    A couple of pics from a trip a group of us took out west a few years ago. Mine is the yellow Goldwing.

    Nice 750 Vulcans. I had a 700 Vulcan for a year or two. I thought it was a great bike. The suspension and mid range power were much better than I had anticipated. They are very capable motorcycles. Mine had a frame mounted fairing on it when I bought it. I removed it and had to find a headlight for the bike. I installed a large 7 inch light from a 750 Honda. I had to cut down the back of the housing a little to clear the instrument cluster. The final result was great. I still have the fairing somewhere in one of my barns.
