I sold my Nightster almost three years ago due to a lack of time to ride. I really want to get another one. I have stuff that is purely toys. I probably won’t get another until I move though.

always loves the nightster, I owned a iron for awhile and really loved that bike, moved up to a dyna when I started riding 2 up more often. Still miss the hell out of it. Sportster with any exhaust is about the best sounding Harley you can buy in my opinion.

Rode for 8 years, owned 3 harleys in that time span. Rode bike-only for about a year and a half. Some guys live the bike only life, I did it and killed the joy of riding. Got a great deal in a 14 GT and said adios to Harleys, cruisers and terrible performance.

A few years later, I needed a carpool lane capable and better gas mileage ride to work. Living in San Diego county, I had a 70 mile daily commute in the months before I moved to AZ. I bought a 2004 Yamaha FZ1 and jesus christ did it blow all the Harleys out of the water. Like, the performance of the FZ1 literally made me salty about all the money I threw away on Harleys. Best bike I ever owned.

Almost got smoke a number of times on the Harleys, and once on the FZ1 in CA. Moved to AZ and my God, its indescribable how much WORSE the drivers are out here. I felt far more comfortable lane splitting the 5 in SD, orange county and the occasionally jaunt up to LA than I did in normal traffic in Phoenix.

Add to it I was getting bored not riding at or over 100mph, mixed with shity Phoenix drivers ... not a good recipe.

I miss it occasionally when I see a liter bike go flying by. Ironically, I've developed a bit of distain for Harleys, lol.
I just sold my FZ. What a bad ass bike. For now I'm staying off the street. We should get some 450s and shred some dirt =)

I think when my little one gets older we will get into powersports. Ive definitely taken a hard look at those shitty China made bikes just to mess with. I think my wife is a lot more interested in jet ski's though haha.

At the moment, Im trying to find a decent Chevy classic project. Had a few slip out of my hands but Ive got leads on a few. My Fox Mustang roller is going for sale once the title gets here.

To shed some light on my love to ride.
I bought a new 2020 Yamaha FJR1300ES in July of 2020. I already have 13,000 miles on it.
And that's with a 5 month break for winter.
Plus I have a MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR and a Yamaha YZF-R1 that I ride.
Plus my track bike.
So yeah...I like to ride a lot and will never give it up.
