I just bought a new motorcycle. Who else out in radio land is a motorcycle enthusiast? What do you ride?

Several rice-rockets over the years.  I don't ride any more.  Too many accidents, banged up knees, etc.  My last bike was an '84 or '85 Honda VT500 Ascot, a tiny V-Twin cafe racer style scooter with shaft drive.  Great commuting bike, very reliable and low maintenance, rode it year-'round in heavy traffic, never got caught in a jam.
