I ride 5 miles a week on my shiny, barely used Harley. Can I be a biker like you too?? Pretty please?

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen a single Victory on the road... just parked in front of the dealer collecting dust. That Vegas looks pretty interesting.



I am happy to note that my employer repainted our lot last year and added a bunch of great spots marked "Motorcycles Only" right near the building entrance. Even here in San Jose where the weather is usually pretty nice (though near 100 the last few days) there are usually only a small handful of bikes (and this in an office complex of nearly 2,500 people). There is one die-hard on a VTX1800 that has his bike in every day of the year, rain or shine. I only have a 2 mile commute so it takes me longer to put on my helmet and jacket than it does to get here, but I still try to ride one day a week. The big hindrance is needing to pick up a two-year-old at day care right after work.

Sometimes, you just have to say "To HELL with the Boss!" and do it anyway.......

It always seems to me I see LESS riders on Ride To Work days... maybe they're the rebels that say, "NO!" to The Man

'72 Sprint 350ss. Not many art deco bikes on the planet. Stripped down to frame and engine, it looks like something they would ride in the Emerald City.



I haven't used Charleston Cycles yet. I'll add them to the list. Thanks for the info.
