What Are You Riding?
« on: October 11, 2010, 02:38:21 pm »

 Happy Columbus Day to all here in the US.  Even though I'm working today, it's a holiday for the banks and schools.

I'm seeing a lot of motorcycles on the road today.  Envious, since I'm waiting for my client to arrive, I got to wondering what all the MEs out there ride.

I know John Scrip cruises a sweet Harley, Trevor Sadler is a hard-core track rider, Chuck Ainlay rides a BMW GS, Goe Gastwirt rides a BMW RT, and I ride a BMW K bike. I know there are some Ducati fans out there too.  Tell us about your ride!

I usually ride this between my apartment and the studio -

...but MTA budget cuts eliminated B24 service on the weekends - so I take this then ....

Somehow I think that wasn't the answer you were looking for though  Razz

Guess if I was going to get something simply for the style of it I'd go with a Studebaker Avanti (shot taken by myself at the Laughlin Casino's vintage car museum when I was there this past August):

... but have a feeling I'd much more likely end up on something like a Puch so I could join the "Moped Army"  Very Happy

I'm noticing a trend among NYC area folks .. Wink


when I counted myself as California this was my ride: Saab 900 SE V6 Convertible

   *sigh* I still sometimes think selling that car was a mistake ... if nothing else changing from leather seats, walnut dash, and a V6 took a bit of adjustment when I came to NY with it's plastic subway, and sneaker power. But all that looked great when I left for tour right after, I mean NY is better than a bus after all ..

I honestly did not even remember today was Columbus Day until I read this thread!  I did just get back from riding 20 miles on my bicycle though.  Beautiful day here in Philadelphia!

When I use to commute to the college it was on a Schwinn 15 Speed Sierra bicycle or a Honda Trail 90 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_CT90 or with my feet. Now my commute is done in socks and amounts to walking from my living space to my mastering room.

5.3 liter v12 to go the 1.8 miles to the studio.

I was banned from motorcycles at an early age after crashing badly into a tree in the woods and also taking out a relatives pool on a tractor. To add insult-my dad restores for fun and has a number of BSA's.

ah yes, bikes....

first one is  my 1972 R75/5 Toaster, picture was taken in the Kit Carson Nat'l Forest in New Mexico.  Award winning bike in shows, it's not for sale and rides like new.

index.php/fa/15592/0/

for whatever reason, it's only allowing me one picture upload so I'm going to spam the list with two more  posts.

ah yes, bikes....

second on is my 2000 HD Road King, picture taken upon delivery in Wichita Falls, TX. Sold the bike in 2005 for more than I paid for it, the true meaning of "Ride Free".  Not bad as farm equipment goes but HD are pretty, not particularly sophisticated riding machines.

ah yes, bikes....

third one is my 1999 R1100RT, picture taken here at the house. This is my competition bike; Iron Butt Association #11403, Waltz Across Texas Rallies 2001, 2002, 2004, 2004 and a number of other competitive LD events; helping run the Wild Goose Chase Rally this coming weekend with the BMW Club of Houston annual gathering.

I know John Scrip cruises a sweet Harley (snip)

Just upgraded to an even sweeter Harley a couple weeks ago --

Upgraded to the new frame / fat rear rubber, pizza box and ABS.  

That new frame is ridiculous...  I was expecting to like it, but I wasn't expecting to be smitten with it.  Never imagined a heavy cruiser that handled like a Porsche...  

index.php/fa/15595/0/

It's an Electra Glide Classic, but I started tweaking right off the bat so now it resembles the new Ultra Limited (except for the 103 and the considerable $5-6k savings, of course).  

And yes, I pulled the fairing and installed my J&M 7.25 3-ways the day after I rode it home.  I didn't buy the thing for the stereo, but I suppose having it actually sounding decent is a plus...
