    This is the place to talk about your bikes, the bikes you once owned, the bikes you want to own, and the bikes you wish you never owned.
    You can post up an upcoming ride you would like to take. Someone might want to ride with you.
    I'm just putting this up here because there seemed to be a need for it from all the recent posts in the NWCORNER CT Tag thread.

    OK. First bike - Suzuki SP500, wish I kept it forever.
    Guzzi V65SP & BMW R65, wish I never sold.
    Ducati ST3, wish I never crashed.
    Multistrada 1100S, wish I bought!
    Happy with the two I have now.
    Going to Marlington, VA in May!

    Yesterday would have been a great day for a tag, but I have done something even more productive.
    Brought another two bikes home yesterday, both have 14k original miles.

    Damn that R 100S is sweet! Front single disc & wire wheels. Didn't know they came that way. Nice grab!

    Yeah, me too, now I don't see wire wheels. Are they? Single or dual disc?

    It's a dual ATE disk "de-celerater". For how well it works, I never call them "brake".

    The smoke lava red on R100s is 1978 one year only color. With so called snowflake cast rim.

    The bike itself is rougher in person than on the photo.
