This is what I ride.....'cept mine is flat black:



And no, that is NOT a kids 20" BMX bike, that is an adult 24" BMX bike.  Worked in a bike shop during college and always wanted one of these, so a couple years back I built my son a ramp for Christmas and he asked me if I was gonna jump it.  Of course once I said,"Of course I'm gonna jump it!"  I had to put the proof in the pudding.  So I shopped all around DFW and found a shop about 30 minutes away that had a small collection of 24" bikes and picked this one up.  She's a sweetheart!!!  My son is 13 now and has mostly outgrown his 20" bike so he rides mine more than I do, but every so often I get a little nervy and jump on her:)

I KNEW I wasn't the only one! hehe

Great accounts guys! Mavin, you hit it right on the head.
Nice lookin rides!!!


I've been riding for close to 20 years now and have had my share of bikes. My favorite was always a 79 CB750F Supersport that I chopped up and turned into a cafe racer. Funnest bike that almost put me in the grave!

the first one is a 2000 harley custom sportster lowered 2 inches, andrews performance cam, screaming eagle high performance heads, 44mm mikuni carb, v&h drag pipes with shortened baffles and head cones, k&n high flow intake, and a corbin solo seat.  this one is my toy....i mod it out like i do my airguns.  the second one is my real sweetheart.  2003 Harley-Davidson Screamin' Eagle Deuce FXSTDSEI - 100th Anniversary numbered edition.  only 500 of these bikes were made in the "custom" shop at harley.  mine is is #274.  i don't ride it very often to keep the miles low on this limited edition.  i usually trailer it to bike week to show it off.  hopefully one day my grandchildren can sell it for a mint....or joe will trade his theoben collection for it!..ha!

Nice bikes all; I haven't owned a motorized bike since before my daughter was born a little over 25 years ago. This is the closest thing I have now. kirby

Hello everyone :)
My main interest in life is motorcycles. Here are the one's in my stable at the moment. The Triumphs, Honda C90 Cub, MZ's  and the old BMW are keepers. The rest come and go although the Honda VFR has been with me for a while and has 90K miles on it :). The old Beemer took me to the Western Sahara desert in 2006. The Enfield has taken me as far as Austria and back to London. The Gixxer is nice and fast, 178 BHP at the back wheel  :emoticon: The little Honda has been to France, Belguim, Holland, Germany, Denmark, Scotalnd, Wales and survived! The red MZ has gone as far as Turkey and back :)

The bikes are:

Triumph 650 Trophy - 1961

GSXR 1000 K5 - 2007

BMW K75S - 1995

Triumph 650 Bonneville - 1971

Enfield Bullet 500

Honda VFR 800FI - 1999

Honda C90 Cub - 1977

BMW R65 - 1979

MZ ES250 Trophy - 1971

MZ TS250/1 - 1978

Safe riding,
Alan :)
