for motorcycle crazies

A couple of years ago I took my 800+ factory brochures of all bikes to the Barber bike museum in Birmingham and they gave me a life pass to get in. If anyone wants to go up there and see the gigantic magnificant museum I will loan you my pass (and trust you to return it to me and not keep it or loan it out). But, there is a catch......I did not see a camera and do not know if the took a picture of me or not. If I had to say I would say no. So, if they catch you then you may have to pay after all but it is worth it, my son and I spent 4 hours there (go online and look it up, you will be surprised especially if you love bikes like me).

I used to have a saying, I did not have blood in my veins just itsy bitsy motorcycles running around.


you can reach me at 4078605237 and leave a msg, or a pm on this site, or an email to [email protected] and title it MOTORCYCLES to get my attention.

You speak my language: Brother!
It's too bad that I'm so far North, or I'd take you up on this most generous offer.
If you ever get to "Noo-Yawk": there's a pretty decent Motorcycle Museum in Newburg, NY.
This was my last ride...

Nice! I bet it was great on long hauls.

I started riding in Japan at 16 and in 52 years on the rode I owned 28 bikes. About the last 10 I made it a hobby and bought ruff used bikes and would spend up to 1.5 years completely restoring to the point people would stop me and ask if that was a new bike and what year it came out. Then when I told them their jaw would hit their belt buckle. I would do everything myself including repainting and clear coating. My last one was a 93 Kawa Zephyr 1100 (only imported 1 year). The last 10 would get restored and I'd ride it for 3 or 4 years then sell it and start another one. Not to brag I was so good they let me go down to the techs at Baxter and pose questions to them.

Not riding anymore at 72 gotta think of the big picture now and I sure miss it!!!!

I got my motorcycle license the first week of June 2018. I got so hooked that since then I have purchased 14 motorcycles. I've never had more than 8 at a time and my current fleet is a comfortable 5. Honestly, I ride so much right now that aside from my rally smart, all my smarts are now garage queens.

I've owned:

-- 2000 Buell Blast (sold)
-- 2008 Bashan MC-16-150T (sold)
-- 2005 Honda Rebel (sold)
-- 1982 Suzuki GS 850G (current)
-- 1980 Honda Goldwing Standard (current)
-- 2012 Jinlun Ruckus clone (sold)
-- 1972 Yamaha DT175 (sold)
-- 2009 CF Moto Fashion 250 (sold)
-- 1974 Kawasaki G5 (sold)
-- 1992 Suzuki GSX1100G (sold)
-- 1996 Honda CBR600F3 (current)
-- 1972 Yamaha U7E (current)
-- 1986 Honda Elite 150D (sold)
-- 2005 Genuine Stella (current)

Of my sold bikes, I kinda miss the old Blast the most. It was deplorable in terms of reliability, but when it worked it was a tiny delight! Despite my constant bike shuffling I still manage a few thousand-ish miles a month. On my bucket list is a BMW K bike, a Triumph Bonneville, and another Buell.

Here is my Goldwing

Nice looking 'Wing!
I had a 1983 1100 Interstate, that I put a quick 50,000 miles on.
It was the best Horizon-chaser on the planet!
