I haven't ridden in about 6 years or so now, but I do have 2 motorcycles, an 83' Honda Shadow 750 and an 83' V45 Magna. Shadow sat for 15 years needs tons of work. My 86HP Magna needs CDI boxes and has an issue wth the coolant pipes leaking occasionally, but low miles and plenty of compression etc... That's a sleeper/fun bike, even if I look like I took a teeny bike from a kid or something - I am 6 feet tall and it's a small bike - seat height etc...
I am looking into a new bike hopefully this summer - I am considering a Harley Davidson Street Rod 750, funny it's an american motorcycle but reminds me of.. well... what I have, 80's Japanese standard motorcycles. I used to just hate on HD years ago - Chrysler too.
I haven't ridden one but am going to start checking out motorcycles again (resist the urge to look at sport bikes) when it gets warmer - well... stays warm. It was 80 Tuesday, snowed yesterday "blizzard" and low of 20.... Colorado weather for you... *coo coo clock sound*
