Now two Vaqueros, but for something completely different - Honda Silverwing maxi-scooter! Huge trunk, a 600cc engine that has surprised many a crotch-rocket, and incredibly nimble. Oh, don't forget, at least 75 mpg. It can run at freeway speeds with no problem (although after an hour, it does get a little "buzy"), but is a true dream around town and backroads.

I had three bikes at one time (a 1500 Classic, a 1500 Drifter and a 750 Honda Shadow), I now have a Versys 650 LT............paying all the insurance on three bikes was a killer.

Also have a 2007 Suzuki C90. And I'm foster caring for my brother inlaw. Have his 2003 Honda VTX 1800 in the barn for a few minor repairs. Once that is done, I'll put it up for sale. Then when it's gone I'll have room to clean up the C90 a bit before it goes up for sale.

When I bought the 2012 Voyager, I kept my 1st bike, also bought new, an 05 800 Classic. It has just over 112,000 miles and I rode it to work last night. Its living a semi retired life now, mostly solo trips to and from work when the weather is nice out.

I have owned a couple of bikes at the same time over the years. But I decided that
the insurance, inspections, registrations and upkeep on more than one bike too much
of a burden. One at a time, thank you.

Had a 750 Yam Virago before my Nomad. Tach too hi at hiway speeds, but fun & nimble, blew my bro away on Va. 421 vs. His Harley dresser. Nomads can't lean much either. Kinda miss the Virago after a neighbor insisted on buying it. Didn't like having to choose which to ride each day. Honestly, Nomad is so great I don't care to ride another. Maybe a Hyabussa, but never had a crotch rocket.

Loved that KZ1000 Police (MKII), ufda was she quick (at the time, in her day)... (Refer to sig...) Wish I still had her.

I'd love to add some dual sport or adventuer rides to the stable. Momma says she'd entertain adventure riding, so maybe the door is open for some additions?
