Ok, I'll play. Here is a first ever pic I've taken of my bike stable. Sorry for the garage mess, but I just got back from a 9 day trip to Nova Scotia, Canada with 2 other friends and I've had to move a lot of stuff around to get my bike trailer out. More on that in another thread.
In keeping with the rules, I provided a pic with all three bikes. The other two is because you can't really see the bikes the way they are positioned.
First, the Triumph gives me a daily ride to my place of work. It's light, agile, with lots of torque. Our business has lots of bike riders, and provides special motorcycle parking for us in a prime location (around 12 bike spaces), which are full most days. The Bobber shines parked among all the other bikes.
Second, the Harley has a special place in my heart and life. I bought it new in 2004 and it has taken me and my wife on many long adventures to rallies, 2 times to Sturgis, and many long overnight trips and day rides to great food and B&Bs. Most recently, it carried me and 100 lbs of gear for 9 days from Virginia, through Maine, New Brunswick, and all the way up the Nova Scotia coast to the northern-most point of Cape Breton (Meat Cove). That's well over 2,000 miles. It's literally my Mule.
Third, I recently purchased the BMW to ride with some core friends in my club. We call ourselves "The Core", which is about 10 members out of 50 that ride hard, and ride long - going to events and on tours that take days. The core ride Yamaha Ventures, Gold wings, and other sporty touring bikes that simply outperform the capabilities of my Harley. They are too fast, and attack technical twisty roads at full performance. So, the BMW can easily keep up with them without exceeding the limits of the bike, and is capable of multi-day trips comfortably.
So, there you have it. Hope you enjoy the read.
I've spent my fortune on wine, women, and motorcycles. The rest I wasted on everything else.
