I have been riding motorcycles for the last 40 some years, and have owned just about everything. I fell in love with the way my 950 looks, so I bought it. So far I have had people at gas stations ask me what it is. Makes the bike just that much more fun.
It's how old you feel, right? I think riding motorcycles keeps us feeling young, does me anyway. I remember seeing this youtube video, a very old guy was selling his vintage Ducati supersport and was doing a walk around video to promote it. This guy had to be pushing eighty, he did everything slowly, was a little shaky, and you could tell it was just breaking his heart that he had to sell his pride and joy. The cool thing was at the end of the video. He started up the bike, let it warm up a bit, then revved it right up and tore off done the road!
