i don't very often ride three consecutive days, but monday, yesterday, and today i have. good roads, good weather (no jacket required), a mix of slab, stix, and city, and a great bike. 465 miles in all; pretty good for me.

my new rf1100 is noisier than i'd hoped, but i'm gonna live.

What is a RF1100, photos, or you really dont have it. What happened to the ninja?
That would be his new helmet...being that it's a Shoei he had to sell the ninja to afford it. Judging by the fact that he was without a jacket, I assume he was riding a bicycle to test it out.

hahaha so true. Definitely more pricey than most of us would like!

Hey Steve. Most folks who wear that helmet appreciate the air flow, but not the noise. Those who want to save their hearing wear ear plugs.

Have you sold the cruiser yet? When was the last time you rode it?

yep, i just may invest in some earplugs.

cruiser? i rode it around the block a couple of weeks ago. it still needs a new front tire; i have the tire, but haven't had time to get to the shop (indie) to have it mounted. and i'm waffling about parting with it.....argh.

for some odd reason i feel like my motorcycle life will be deprived if i don't own a harley. i like the fatboy, the deluxe, the fatbob, and the street bob. i'd probably buy a used one, but then i compare prices with the metrics - and gulp.

and i'm thinking about trading the ninja for a versys.

decisions, decisions.

im with you... i accept a little more risk for the comfort of not riding with a jacket

I've always liked the softtail custom. I'll probably end up with a Raider though.

When it comes time to part with the Ninja and KLR, I will probably replace both with the Versys. Body can't handle the mud anymore.

Since you modified/removed sig photo, thought maybe you scored a new ride.

Sorry not up to speed on ride gear / helmets that you must mortgage. I ride with the best safety flip flops money can buy, but go cheap on the sun glasses! If I fall there gonna get scratched.

emilyinsandiego sold her ninja 250 and got married today, matter of fact.

i'm gonna put up a pic of both bikes later.

well, yeah, you pay to play, no doubt about it.

we've all gone round'n'round on ATGATT. mho: to each his own, as well as what you ride.

Gratz on the daughter...and don't get me wrong, I don't look down on any of you for choosing not to wear gear; I just like to poke fun. Personally, knowing how I ride it's best that I always go out in full gear. Not to mention because my father owns 33% of my motorcycle, I had to sign a contract before hand stating that I had to wear all gear at all times.

heck, i figure it's in fun unless the language becomes offensive, but i want to explain my perspective, nevertheless. and, i do belong to the "those who've fallen" category; minor scrape on the bike (1500 suzuki LC, back in 03) and, thank God, only a deflated ego on my part - LOL.

after the post-wedding brunch i was gonna go for a cruise; i even started up the bike and got my helmet and gloves ready to go. after taking a restroom break, i decided i was a little too weary to be 101% alert, so i've been fooling around on the PC instead.
