Off Topic:  Motorcyclists

So this is the third time I'm trying to write this, it keeps kicking an error message out to me. Summer is here and motorcycling weather is in full swing, so I thought I'd see what other BSD'ers are riding. As for myself, I'm on bike number four in 7 years. First was a learner bike for me, an 04 Honda Shadow Aero 750 that I outgrew in two years. Following that was my second favorite, an 07 Yamaha Vstar 1300 (one of the first 125 built) that I adored. However, one of my dream bikes was a Goldwing, which I bout in early 2010 (a used 08 model). Though I liked it, I didn't love it, and maintenance was an issue. So, after trading that in on my truck, this spring I bought a 1999 Honda Valkyrie Tourer. This has been my favorite bike by far, and a pleasure to ride like no other. Typically, friends and I plan one really long trip per year (3-4000 miles in a week), though this year we skipped. Destinations have been South Dakota (no, not sturgis), new orleans, and upper nova scotia (our shortest trip). I also teach the Motorcycle Safety Course for PA. So....what about you?
