First Time in 4 Years

I have all 3 of my bikes running.
The red one in front is a 1973 Honda CB350 that was a ground up rebuild.
The middle one is a 1982 Honda CB750 that I bought 3 years ago as a Cafe Racer but I changed it to a Drag Style Bike.
Last but not least is my 2012 BMW K1600GTL.

These are the best of all worlds (my opinion). There is a 2 cylinder twin, a 4 cylinder & a 6 cylinder. All 3 give me a different riding style, the CB350 is my 50 mile bike as that is as far as my old body can take.
The CB750 is good for 100 miles & I've done many 1,000 mile days on the BMW.

Yep that is the kind of dilemma we all should have.

I almost bought Hill County BMW Rental 6 years ago but I had just started ASAP & did not want too much on my plate. Now the ASAP is for sale I may look into the rental bikes again.

Re: First Time in 4 Years

Getting closer & Closer. I got insurance on both bikes last week. Put new tires on the CB750 two weeks ago. Today I loaded them both up & ran down to Woods Fun Center and had both bikes inspected. I'll get tags on them in the next day or two. Then it is time to ride the piss out of them to make sure they are reliable so I can sell them. I already have a salesman at Woods wanting the CB350.
