    If this is not the appropriate forum for this thread, then please move it.

    If you own a motorcycle, tell us about it. If you have pics, share them.

    Here's mine: 2006 Suzuki Boulevard C50T (800cc)

    I know of a few of us.

    I'm shopping for a new bike right now. I sold mine a few months back to clear some debt for something we needed. I'm looking at Victory cycles though I will probably go with a Harley. I want an Electra Glide. Always have.

    Jarv is a biker. So is 5 stars, Charles has a Ducati. I know I'm forgetting someone.

    I will post a pic as soon as I make the deal. It may be a month or more before I am back on 2 wheels. I miss it badly. I bought a Cowboys leather jacket for this winter. I can't not wear it to and from work.

    I've always wanted to build a custom, but I don't have the skills.

    I bet that sucker is fun to ride with those low handlebars.

    I'll try and scan pictures of my Fat Boy that got killed by an old lady's car. Not the death pics. It was a nice bike

    I never took pics of the bike I just sold because I hadn't done any mods on it. It was factory.

    I'm getting antsy for a new bike.

    It's definitely a blast, not for the inexperienced rider or the weak at heart though.

    That stinks about the Fat Boy...I couldn't imagine losing a bike, thats enough to make any biker antsy.

    I use photobucket. I just tried to scan and download a pic of me and my wife and encountered an error. I was using it as a test case for downloading pics of my Fat Boy.

    These two are the only ones i'm familiar with, partly because they're the first to come up on google, and partly because they were suggested for ease of use.

    The way my Fat Boy died is what killed me. I rode it to the Mall and parked it way away from the congested parking area because I didn't want cars on either side of it and someone pulling into the spot and knocking it down.

    An old lady didn't get her car all the way into park and it rolled backwards out of the parking spot and down the incline until it mounted and killed my Fat Boy.

    I came out of the Mall to a small crowd and my bike destroyed. Her insurance totaled it but they tried to cheat me out of the settlement amount. The lady actually gave me a Yamaha Virago 750 that she had bought for her son, but he never rode it. Nice lady who just made an unfortunate mistake.

    I gave it to my brother after I bought my last bike.

    The moral of this story is, if you park somewhere to be safe, downhill still isn't safe enough.

    How so? Did they add high depreciation and bring the actual cash value down? (adjuster here)

    They tried to give me the amount of a stock bike, no improvements and they were below book on the stock bike too. They ended up making a good offer but they tried to low ball me.

    ...because the insurance rates here is Saskatchewan increase exponentially when you go one cc over 400.

    It's a fun ride which tends to get abit loose at the higher speeds on the highway. I wouldn't recommend it for a heavier person or one who likes comfort or alot of assurance throught he handle bars.

    You get alot of road feel on a lighter bike at speed. You've got to be on your toes.

    Used to ride a 650 unti the insurance company decided to jack the rate up. It didn't seem to make sense to me monetarily and this little 400 fell into my lap.

    I paid $384 for full coverage for a year on a 1200cc bike. Doesn't seem like a whole lot to me.
