FWIW the 900 forum is the most active on the site per our site statistics.

I do kinda wish we had a mandatory profile field (with 'none' being an option of course) for what you ride. Would be cool to kind of get a broader 'sample' of what everyone rides.

"8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Romans 5:8 (NIV)

I think this is a pretty good sample, Roman. Some sigs are just too darn long and take up a lot of real estate.

Or a sample of the most active folks. But there is a lot of others out there that don't post as often and may not have seen this yet. But I figured the 900 was going to be the most. From what I see here it is the jack of all trades and the master of none. Just a good all around bike

Well, sticky this post and make it mandatory to vote in here to become an active user.

I do like it that my 900 is in the lead. Good all around bike, plenty of power but not overpowering. But WTH do I know, I've never ridden a bigger bike.

After a 40 year layoff from dirt bikes, I got a Yamaha 650 Silverado Classic which I rode for a year to get my "Sea Legs" back. Then I bought a new 08' Vulcan 1600 Classic which I really love and still ride today!
