I’ve been riding motorcycles for over 15 years now on and off. In fact I had my motorcycle endorsement before I even had a regular drivers licence. My first motorcycle was a 2001 Buell Blast. I only kept that bike for one season and sold it before winter because I didn’t really have a place to store it.
My second motorcycle was also a Buell Blast, but with this one I think I spent more time tearing it apart and making modifications to it than actual riding. I had just as much fun doing that. Some of the work is documented here buellblastmodifications.wordpress.com.
After that I owned a mess of a bike for about a week. It was a 1981 GS 750. I had that bike just long enough to get it running and sell it on down the road before it ended up costing me too much money.
My next bike was a 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 250r. Riding that Kawasaki was an entirely different experience than the Buell. Even though the engine was half the size it went down the road twice as good. I had a great time riding that bike but ended up selling it to help fund a trip.
I am currently in search for my next bike, the one that will take me 6000+ miles around the U.S. very soon. You can follow me on that adventure at twowheelin.wordpress.org .
