And then there was one .

So I'm down to just one bike :-( ...a friend of mine made me an offer I couldn't refuse on my BMW R9T , so that just leaves the BB which by the way Is a keeper . Iv always had more that one bike nice to have a back up .

The new Triumph Scrambler 1200 has peaked my interest , I could be wrong but I don't think that's out until February next year and no prices yet . But I keep going back to the Kawasaki Z900RS cafe , great looking bike I love the fering at the front and the Lime color , dealership docent do test rides which Is kinda strange . But In the meantime Im scouting around for an old CB750 ( or equivalent ) for a winter project something I can chop up and cafe out ... The search goes on .

Hi Mar-Vel,

I'm just thrilled you kept the Bobber..

I wish I could afford more than one bike but to be honest I like just having one to focus all my love and attention on.

In my youth I would always have a summer and winter bike and at times had as many as seven. But these days I can just afford one, so welcome the the 'one bike club'...

No critique of those of you who have many bike, gosh if I had the spare funds I would have a whole garage full.

Cheerio,

Roy

I know how you feel. I had a BMW R nineT and a Triumph Scrambler but I sold them. I couldn't get my leg over them anymore.



I just have the Bobber now. But I'm riding it more than I rode the other two together.

That was when I was in my late teens, lived with my parents on a farm and I spent 'all' my money on bikes. Those days have long gone I'm afraid but great memories.

Cheerio,

I have the cousin to the CB 750 family, it's an 1100F. These are great bikes to work on and lots of parts available.

I’ve been considering the Yamaha XJR1300 for a project bike... Debolox’s take on one inspired me just a little!

Thanks Mar-Vel, These bikes in very good condition have come up in price, I've put a lot of work into her, much more than I'll ever get back. The 1100 F was the superbike in '83, it scares me sometimes.
