My wife only complains when i walk into the house smelling like gasoline, then i just head out for another ride to air-out the smell, the Blackbird does the job quicker than others.

Yes, very close, lots of horse farms in the area with winding rolling country roads, little LEO enforcement, very entertaining riding area.

Latest addition to the garage.. replaced the old 1976 Honda engine with a 140cc Chinese unit. Still trying to find an optimal placement for the oil cooler.

Cool

Adding another two-up ride, 2007 Burgman 650, 8k miles on odometer, sat outdoors for a couple of years, cosmetically kinda rough.



Needed new battery/tires/fluids/brake pads.. of course gone darkside when replace the rear tire:

The weight (600 lb.) of the scoot is cumbersome when maneuvering by human strength; but under its own power it can outperform most 2-wheel vehicle with higher placement of engine transmission in cornering.

Enough underseat storage for two full face helmet, no need for extra external luggage. It's designated as a 2-up ride for the extra stuff that my passenger need to have along with the ride.

Thanks.. I like variety, no particular rotation of vehicle, just what I find suitable for particular purpose.

Picked me up another 06 CBR600F4i this past weekend, 4k miles on odometer, minor body damage, unmolested with only a slip-on exhaust.

$2k cash, since I was the first person to show up with payment in hand and seller was desperate for $$.

I'll probably just turn it for profit in a few weeks.

Sold my 99 Katana 750 this weekend. Bought it for $1600 back in 2013 at 9k miles, sold for $2200 w/16k miles.
No garage queen but rock solid bike.. heavy, too.

I will miss it once in a while.. like many of my bikes, it needed very little care: fuel, lube and go.
Performance of the 750cc air-oil cooled engine is just fine for the streets in capable hands.
If I find another one in decent shape and low price, probably will buy again.

Great bike that cost you $-800. Seems like it worked out.

I love the way a V4 motorcycle sounds.

Not sure on how it looks though.

Gear driven cams and V4..

Once you put your legs over the bike, you can't even see much of the bike..

Here are some better pic of my last VFR over 10 years ago:

While replacing the battery on the R1100S, discovered that there may had been some creature hibernating in the area under the fuel tank:



and chewing on the negative terminal wire:



Someone had been doing shady mechanical work.. missing buncha bolts as I took her apart:

I'm no master mechanic, but when I take apart something, I keep track of which bolt came from where.. at least put everything that came off the bike back on. Missing bolts just indicate that someone didn't pay attention.

Today, I bought a 04 Honda 599 for $1600, 15k mi. needs chain/sprockets/tires/front brake pads/lines:

I sold my 04 Ninja 250 to a friend for his son to start riding motorcycle, the Honda 599 will be a replacement commuter for NYC metro.

Hard to beat a pre-gen Ninja for filtering thru gridlock traffic at walking pace, I will see how well this inline-4 holds up after a months.

You need to line them up from yellowest to blackest. Or if you just park the CBR between the VFR and the Blackbird it would look like the two big bikes gave birth to the CBR.

Scooters I have are not 100% Hondas, with exception of the 82 Honda C70, the other two: one is a Chinese clone of Honda Reflex/Helix, the other is only a 77 Honda C90 body with a Chinese 125cc pitbike engine.
