The Ural may not have more power than my V-Star, but it's cool, has huge dirt capability, and that sidecar can carry batteries for CPAP or cold weather gear. I could also probably get my daughter in the sidecar before I could get her on the back for fun trips in town



OK, the Royal Enfield may not have a ton of power or off road capability, but it's not outrageously expensive, it's cool, and it looks like entirely too much fun



Last, but not least is the Kiwi Indian Bobber. It's got disc brakes, but it also has a brand new flat head V twin engine, that sweet looking leaf spring front end, and your choice of kick or electric start! I also like the foot clutch and hand shift. It's just got a great mix of old and new and looks like a total hoot to ride

I think I'm starting my mid life crisis because I'm really wanting one of these.

How early in one's life is a mid-life crisis allowed?
I don't intend on living too long, if that's important.

I'm in my mid 30's and have already had one or two. YMMV, I suspect.

Are these any fun? I suspect yes...

I'm fairly sure it's the latter..... but variation of the (over here) current Bandit w/ available Touring luggage.
A acquaintance in Scotland has one & it's a close "ringer" for his.

I figure if you keep it going it isn't a crisis. I think mine "started" at 23. Quarter life?

This car is why I don't bat an eyelash at motorcycle tires.
(Not mine, I had a T-top. And I'd love to know what dark promises that guy made to keep the toyota paint red.)



Ahh, good times. Stupid times, but good times.


Still waiting on one of these:



Also: Damn, where did my 20's go?
