Every day I use a bike to go to work, shoping or just any other reason to get out.The bike I use is of course a Honda and of course the greatest bike in the world ,with 60 million produced the Honda C bikes are the most important form of motorised transport in the history of the world.So my bike is a Honda C90 cub 1988 and going strong
Do other members have small bikes ?
The GL 500 nakey custom project makes me smile as well, more than my suuuuuuzuuuuukiiii sporty thing did

Really dumb? I think not. I would say.....really fortunate, because I too have 5 and 2 sleds.

In addition to my CX500 I also have an Aprilia Falco (SL1000R).







It is amazing what a blast both bikes are. One is of course much stronger than the other, but the CX makes me grin too!

My other ride is a Suzuki Savage, but it's a bit small for me and mainly for my girlfriend to ride. But before I got my GL and traded away my Suzuki GS1100L, I rode it a bit, since it was the only one in the fleet that worked!!!

Specialized Roubix

Fondriest Status/ full Campagnolo/Easton Accent wheels/Veloflex master tires. My equipment is getting old I need to upgrade to a new race bike. If you don't use Veloflex tires give them a try they are the absolute best. Almost forgot my Ironic "Ice Cream bike" is a '70s friction shift Nishiki with flat bars. I also do Short Track Speed Skating four days per week, Now THAT'S as ride!

1967 R50/2, Yamaha XS650 total Custom built me moi.

Cheers, 50gary

Am in the process of attaining another 650 C. Should have it by early Dec. Absolutely love this bike and the one that's soon coming home with me is in better shape than my current one. Good chance will be putting one up for grabs on the forum this spring but gotta do some comparisons. XL500S is currently in the shop getting overhauled and probably won't see it till spring. My wife says I'm excentric but I gotta say "I just love these twisted sisters."

wightegl, since you started this thread how about putting up some pictures from your home. The Isle of Wright is one of those places I have always wanted to, but will never get to, visit! BTW your bikes look good! To comply with the subject of the thread, I will put up a picture of my 2000 ST1100 with its Hannigan Astro sidecar and my 1983 GL650. I think there may be a similar thread called "Members Bikes" if I remember correctly, but I don't remember where it is located!
