My VStrom is equally unattractive but unlike my wife it's never said, "Not tonight dear."
Yep, it's a great getaway to plot new adventures...
Yup, I stare at pics of my bike all the time.
The RR here keep me dreamin and yearning to ride.
Keep in mind that from here on out, our days are getting longer each day.
I can't wait til spring hits and my tiger comes out of hibernation.
Dang it, I knew I forgot something!

Wow!!! It Looks like Twisted Throttle threw up in your garage!
AHH the smell of burnt rubber.
I park my bike right outside the front glass doors of my office... I really do stare at my bike from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Unless it's raining. Then I wheel it into the office.
..live in Toronto, and yes it was cold..and was too cold when I came home to look at the MC much....
cause then I might feel guilty and have to clean it...(>.<)?
...Ridding means never having to say your sorry...
it's worse when you're poly-bike-ual.
Ooh, baby, I'd love to hop on you and ride into the sunset. And you- sweetheart, you, me, and the Dalton Highway.. And you, ya minx- always lifting your ass up in the air at stopsigns...

i touch myself every time i walk past my bike . now that its winter . im thinking i should put a dollar on the tank every time i go by
This is exactly my story as well! Lately I have been ordering farkles steadily, but I will go out and sit on my bike while I look at stuff on my phone or laptop, just so that it's easier for me to get an idea of what it would look like on the bike. I only had one night of riding my new machine for 3 hours before it snowed and winter ended up staying. I have probably spent 30 hours sitting on it, letting it idle periodically, and just staring at every angle of it and becoming acquainted with the new addition to the family.
I completely agree with the safety aspect of it too though, I have come across a couple of problems that I wouldn't have found if it wasn't for a 3 hour inspection of every inch of machine. I'm glad this thread was started, I was able to show my girlfriend a few posts to prove that I'm not alone in this addiction. Spring is coming guys!!
Well I was going out to my shed and looking at it sipping a beer and smoking a cigarette.
But I just quit and it's damn cold so I brought my 2012 KLR 650 into the basement and I'm tearing it apart checking stuff and farkling and generally wasting time.
I do spend a fair amount of time just ogling it thinking of what will be soon.
All the time, almost too much.
Yes, of course on occasion. But....
I spend even more time admiring my Superbabies hibernating in a spare bedroom.
In case you're wondering, I shot this pic for the 'Do Crocs Make Me Look Like A Dumbass?' thread. :huh
And some winters they switch for place of prominence. Warmest regards from way up north, Mark H.
But it's because I'm in a quandary about wether to upgrade it or upgrade to a new bike.
Yesterday I remembered that it had been 4 years since my F800GS was delivered by Max BMW. And then I just had to go to the garage and I spent a few minutes looking at "Hermann" and siting on him, looking at all the stickers and remembering all the cool places we've been together during those 4 years - 55K miles, 42 states, 6 provinces... I knew I made a good choice because even after all that time I still can't get enough of looking at that bike. I call him my trophy bike, it's the initial year only yellow/black color and with the paniers and all the stickers it does get a lot of attention. On Friday I rode to work and at least 100 drivers turned their heads to check out the bike, although the fact that it was 0F might have helped a little.
I bought a non-running ZX9R a few months ago. After a lot of time in the garage I finally have it running awesome! (52 year old guy with a Ninja lol. I'm the envy of every 19 year old on the block.) Every time I walk past it I shout "Ninja!" and give it a karate chop. My kids have started doing it too.
Ive done it with most of my vehicles , even work related ones . Im always looking at things I can add or change to improve them . Back when I was a teen I would lay under my 79 chevy 4x4 or 77 ford 150 or 53 ford f100 for hours just looking . Normally an idea will hit me and next thing I know my wallet is slimmer .
