HBO, you should take a trip on your Beemer up here someday, lots of long open stretches and great camping just off the roads. I could join you on my R100GS on one of the tours I haven`t done yet.

Damn boys, you take your dual sporting seriously. All of a sudden the XT seems woefully inadequate. I think I'm suffering from "Moto Envy".

Harold ..... that Beemer is Sweet !!!!

I've been looking at bikes last couple of weeks, hope to find a used daily driver to commute 30 miles each way to work.  Looked at an 01 Yamaha
V-Star 1100 today nice bike only 6000 miles on it and $4300.  I like the Harley sportster alot also and would rather have a Harley.  Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Larry,
   you need something with 15 inch seat to go with that 3' 8" fireplug frame of yours. See I did that without saying you were short.


I followed Larry to see him on a test ride.





Here's the picture.

a long time ago....

I remember vivadly having to stand on milk crates at the starting line, because we coudln't reach the ground when seated, only the pegs:


the back window of any true racer van HAD to be decorated with at least 15 stickers...was a great time to be a kid...

V-Star 1100 is a damn fine motorcycle. Lots of custom V-Star parts around, I've seem some done very well. It's a buyer's market this summer, you don't normally see that during riding season but I guess with the economy the way it is and the motorcycle bubble on the down swing, it's good for anyone looking.

Hey llb, there are a lot of good metric cruisers out there that are good. As far as Sportsters go, I'd say that it depents on your size, thay are kind of small. The only way that I wouldn't look like a Giraffe humping a dacshund would be to set it up like a flat tracker.

But I always recomend BMWs to people looking for a good commuter. The80s and 90s Ks are all 100 plus thousand mile bikes as well as the older airhead R bikes. You can find them all the time for between 3-4 grand. The trick is to find them with lower miles. People usually like riding their Beemers. Here in LA I guess there are a lot of posers cuz I see a lot of them on craigs list with less than 30k on them for about that money. That is barely broken in on a beemer.

My 1st Harley was a Sportster. Rode it a few months and wanted a bigger bike. Depends on your size and if you plan on a female passenger go with the bigger Harley. Most guys riding Sportsters got "no fat chicks" stickers on their helmets! Just from my experience you'll want the bigger Harley down the road.
