I was just curious as to what was the average age of the riders posting on these forums, and what bikes they may have owned in the past.
I'm 20 years old, and live in Canada. Currently the only one of my friends with a cruiser, but I do have a few saving up their shekels to get a v-twin.
I have only had two bikes, my first was a 1977 Kawasaki KZ650
When I had bought it, it was in pretty rough shape, and it was the first time I had attempted to restore a vehicle.
I bought new tires, tubes, dyna performance coils, converted to electronic ignition from points, i painted it myself (and I think I did a pretty good job for a first timer haha), had the seat re-upholstered, and many many other things.
However, at the end, I still wanted a cruiser, so I sold it to pay for the insurance on my VN900. Insurance is a bit much up here in Manitoba, my VN900 runs ab out 1700 a year.
And of course, here is the new beast. Nothing too fancy yet, just ISO grips and some saddle bags. Winter time I'll be putting on the 240 fat tire kit
