You can probably glean from my sig that I'm into bikes. 'Viffer' refers to the Honda VFR, which was my last ride before I stopped motorcycling regularly about a decade ago.
What I rode, from 1998 until about 2008:
2002 Honda Interceptor. Put about 40k miles on it, and took it on several interstate trips. Absolutely adored it. Did a little customization, including LED tails, pinstriped wheels, hardwired GPS, and painted dash panel.
2001 Suzuki SV650 (#2, track bike). I did 3-4 track days a year until 2005 on this, which I co-owned with a pal. Even bought a frakking Jeep (with a manual!) to tow it around. Track prepped with everything from Marchesini wheels and Ohlins fork to clip-ons and track sliders. Thing was a tossable beast on tighter technical tracks; I regularly lapped literbikes on it.
2001 KTM Duke II. Co-owned with an ex-fiance. The single most fun bike I've ever ridden. Wheelies and stoppies at will, and absolute genius in the city.
2000.5 Aprilia ST1000 Falco. Basically a Mille with a half fairing. V-Twin literbike. Ducati killer. Incredible to own, but a bum knee from a soccer injury made me trade it in after two years for the Interceptor.
00 Suzuki SV650 (#1, street bike). Had this for about two years, and modified it heavily to cop a cafe racer/streetfighter combo vibe. Loved it so much, I went in on another as a track bike. Really easy to work on.
97 Kawasaki Ninja 500. First owned bike; bought it used. Only had it for about 6 months before I got one of the first 2000 SVs. Nice for what it was, but otherwise ... meh.
I rode to work most years at least twice a week on everything above except the track bike -- even in the Texas summer, wearing a helmet, boots and a perforated Kushitani or Vanson jacket. Why'd I stop? I never had a major crash on public roads, but came close a few too many times ... and had a couple of pals who weren't so lucky ... and I needed to get finances in order for a coming career change. Life choices ... you know.
I thought about getting back into it last year; even shopped a KTM Super Duke GT, a BMW R100RS, and a Ducati Multistrada, among a couple of others. Decided the P-Car was enough at this stage in my life.
