Had several other bikes at the same time for a while. Don't quite have the time to spend on each and was getting a little tired of maintaining three only to ride one most of the time. When the wife quit riding, I decided to sell the other two and I kept the Vaquero. May get another as an around town bike or for the missus if she decides she'd like to ride on occasion.

I almost always have 2 bikes or more. Currently restoring a 1972 Yamaha XS650 that my dad bought new.

Looking for a Buell XB9R that I can take to the track.

I currently own a 2017 Vaquero, 2006 Yamaha Roadstar Midnight and a 2007 BMW R1200 GS Adventure. Love them all but the BMW will be leaving soon as the endless repair bills and no local dealers have made keeping it not worth the trouble.

You have a Cafe? I'm building one now with a 1975 CB750, I intend on putting inverted forks from GSXR. What bike do you have?

Moto Guzzi V7 Cafe Classic. It is a tribute to the 1970s V7 Sport.


Yes, I keep it one a table. Rolling art.

Wow! Nice Moto guzzi, love the color. I like the cafe culture and history. Moto Guzzi may have been the first to introduce a modern Cafe Racer. I've been using my CB750 this summer and will "cafe" it as a winter project.

Nice. Sometimes I am envious of you northerners who get qquality wrench time with your bikes. I have to wait for rainy days and after dark to work on my bikes.

If it is nice, I am riding.

My '15 Vaquero is long range riding or when I want to listen to music or need luggage space, even around town. I also have a '17 Suzuki M109R which, though still a cruiser, is a totally different experience and a badass looking bike even stock.

Not true, unless you heat your garage $$$. Or you have to work in Kerosene fumes to heat your garage. The tools are cold your hands are cold the wires are stiff, the garage is still open to let out the fumes. So it gets cold fast again. AND You still bleed when you pick up a tool. ( Ok, maybe that is just me) Plus the cost of a CO2 sensor, just in case.

PLUS we can not ride (Snow and Salt), and that hurts the most.

Now I envy You, and the weather you have.

Other bike

I love my Vaquero and it gets ridden the most but sometimes I still get the notion to go fast. My other bike is a 2004 Kaw ZZR1200C.
