That is one sexy bike!!! I don’t ride, but Darling Husband wants to get his motorcycle license soon. I told him he’s not allowed to have a crotch rocket (he has a bad history with car accidents, I don’t want him getting into an accident without a metal cage around him), but I’d love a bike like this in our family. My uncle was a biker (actual gang member biker, not just a guy who rides bikes), so I think it’s in my blood 😉

We have Hondas! One vintage Gold Wing for comfort on long trips (we went 10,000 km in 11 days cross-Canada in August), a Nighthawk currently being fixed up, and a stripped down ‘naked Wing’ (no faring) coming in spring. My fiancé got his license last year and I have mine but have barely driven, because I got it right before winter. I can’t wait to ride in spring!

Oops, crotch rocket chick over here!  I have a Kawasaki Ninja ex500r.  I got into it because my dad is a life-long rider, and because my mom wanted me not to ride so bad (I was a rebel!)  I know it sounds weird and ironic, but I feel safer on a sport bike (I’m never the passenger).  I just feel more in control of the steering.  Learned how to ride on an old Harley and didn’t really enjoy it until I got on a Ninja 🙂

Fiance used to have a Kawasaki KZ900 LTD until someone stole it. 🙁 He wants to get another bike at some point.

Looked like this one:

I do, but Darling Husband doesn’t or hasn’t since he was a teen.  I had a Maxim 750 until it was stolen a few years ago and have been on the hunt for a new one ever since.  I like the classics but they have to be able to accomodate my short stature and those are alittle harder to find.

@AmyDee: I learned on a Ninja! It totally intimidated me at first but it was an awesome bike for learning. Sports bikes are definitley manouverable, way more than big touring bikes.

Nope, never. I prefer to have metal protecting me on the roads, not clothes
