Hi All, I'm a MSF Rider Coach. I live near Atlanta GA USA. I've been riding for 49 years. I've owned 65 motorcycles so far. I just bought a 1999 Blackbird. It is a replacement for a 1991 VFR 750 that my son was careless enough to plant into the back of a pick up, I also have and ride a 2006 BMW R1200RT, a 2001 Triumph Trophy 900. A 1988 Honda CBR600, A 1985 Kawasaki ZX900, And a 1967 Triumph Mountain cub. As you can see I don't play favorites. I have yet to find a bike that is perfect for everything.
