Who own's other bikes? Let's hear from you?

Hey, I have to admit I sure love my Vulcan 1600. It's my favorite ride! But last fall I was privileged to pick up a 1999 Triumph Sprint ST 955i for a great price. I have always been wanting a sport touring bike for a while and now I have to say, I found a bike that fit's the bill. It is fast........very fast, but I take it cool though. One thing I love the most about this bike is the saddlebags.They are so easy to snap on and off. Just one lock with a key and presto. Very nice bike and highly recommended!! Plus it has heated grips too.

Here she is...

And of course I can't go without mentioning my Honda XR200R. Just love this bike too, when I want to get out and back in the bush, you can beat the easy light handling of this little four stroke bike.

Here she is... and me...

Besides my wife and daughter in laws Vulcan 500's I have a VTX 1300C, my oldest son has a 1100 Shadow, my middle son has a C50, and my youngest son has a 750 Shadow Spirit. I never have to look far to have someone to ride with.

While my wife rides the 900 Classic LT, I ride a V Star 1300 dressed for touring.

Sounds great. I can always count on my Husband for somebody to ride with. He has two bikes as well. All together we have 5 bikes. We have down sized a bit though. We used to have 6 bikes between us.

For sure! I haven't taken a ride where I drained my tank yet, but by my calculations I am getting over 50 miles to the gallon and therefore I should get over 400kms a tank.
