I've never had a crash on a motorcycle, knock on asphalt. I'm a devoted advocate of motorcycle safety and have been a member/moderator of a site dedicated to just that for over 5 yrs. The owner of that site has over 500,000 accident-free miles on motorcycles.

@kvankuren, thank you for sharing your story. I appreciate your honesty and openness.

Robert

I've always thought about buying one but I don't live in the best place to ride one. I live in a tropical island were it rains over 50% of the year, plus the roads aren't the smoothest. I grew up riding bikes, had an XR80 when I was around 10yrs old I think, moved on to a KX80. I loved that toy, made my childhood a lot more fun. I kind of one day went pretty far away from home across a few suburbs, ran away from the police, they caught a friend of mine and so they went to my house to wait for me, lol, my parents sold the bike after that "embarrassment to my mom" with the police. Had a few falls. The worst was with an overgrown neighbourhood friend seated behind me, we were taking a pretty big curve and I was turning the bike and myself in the direction of the curve, he turned in the other direction... I guess he wanted to see the road. So because of him moving his bigger body in the other direction the bike wasn't turning and kept moving straight forward... till I stopped it with my face on a street lamp post. Passed out for a few seconds and woke up cut up pretty bad, had bracers back then, cut up my mouth, plus long scratches all over my arms, face and legs; nothing happened to the friend tho. At that age I got back on pretty quick after I healed.

My father bought a Harley Sportster a couple of years ago, rode that a while but he did not use it much and ended up selling it. I've always been interested in riding those bikes with the big fat wheels on the rear, or something like Batmans bike. Perhaps because of my childhood I never got used to riding Harley type bikes with the feet extended to the front, I want to go off road and start jumping on it.

Broke both arms on a KTM 450sx two years ago and still miss riding! Always loved all bikes but enjoyed sportbikes most of all.

I own a Yamaha FZ6.

Hoping they bring 1000/600 cc versions of this to the states. Some like it, some hate it, the new Yamaha MT-01:

My Connie

I don't drag knees or scrape hard parts with this heavy girl, but we get around.

This is me on my '88 Kaw Concours (ZG1000), last year on the Dragon:

My last gig - 220 ps at the crankshaft. Best bike I have ridden.

But if things go well I am eyeing KTM Superduke 1290 R as a road/track machine. Some say, it's the most epic bike ever.
