Ride or park a vintage CB750 anywhere and it's hard to get away from questions or statements like "I always wanted one of those", "My ___________ had one of those" and, often with a far away look in their eyes "I had one of those, wished I never sold it".

The Harley crowd likes the Norton, the /7 with sidecar, and the German Shepherd too!

The HOG...

The HOG guys tend to be a big fan of Boris the Ural too. Or maybe it's the cute gal driving it?

I don't care what you ride, just ride!

A buddy is the manager at the local county airport. He is a very bad influence! Good for me I'm broke and have a small garage or I might just have a biplane now.
