Greetings from Davenport, IA. I'm Chris, 28 years old, an avid cyclist and a big fan and long-time lurker to the forum. No dual-sports in the stable yet, but it's certainly not out of the equation as there are plenty of unpaved roads locally and distant that I'd love to explore on two wheels.
The current collection:
'98 Guzzi V11 EV
'97 Guzzi 1100 Sport
'70 Honda CB175 (recently acquired and currently completely apart for restoration)
Past bikes, dirt and street, include:
(In order of acquisition)
'77 Honda XR75- given to me at the age of 9 (would like another for nostalgiac reasons, as well as for my young nieces/nephews and future kids of my own, and would pay almost any
thing for my old one back, regardless of current condition)
'89 Kawasaki KX125
'96 Honda CR125
*some years later*
'06 Kawasaki ZX6R
'94 Honda CB250 (bought for then g/f / now-fiancee to learn on, which didn't last long with her due to her hectic school and work schedule, but I had a surprising amount of fun on it myself)
'01 Kawasaki ZRX1200R
As previously mentioned, a dual-sport is certainly welcome to join the herd, but I'm currently on the hunt for a mint, bone-stock (or close to it) '96-'97 Ducati 900SS/CR or late '90's carb'ed/early '00's FI Ducati Monster 900. Red, of course.
