    I know. It isn't fair because on a downhill twisty or on a go-kart track, my 50-cc scooter would beat your 1900-cc scooter.

    Since that V-twin sport bikes would make for unfair comparison, how about the Ducati Diavel? A V-twin cruiser that would leave your geezer glide in the dust.

    Dab, I'll be the last guy to steer you away from bikes, but if the two of you are going to get separate units, have you considered getting a raggtopp sportscar?

    A drive in a great car will never come close to a ride on a crappy motorcycle. HH

    I owned a Miata. If for some reason I couldn't ride a motorcycle anymore I'd own another one.

    My prefered rides are "standards" and "Sport Tourers". Right now I'm on a BMW F800ST but have owned

    79 Suzuki GS1000 (still have it)
    2000 Suzuki Bandit 1200
    2007 Kawasaki KLR 650
    2005 BMW R1150R
    2004 Yamaha FJR1300
    2007 Yamaha FZ6
    1998 Suzuki DR350SE (Still have this one too)
    2007 BMW F800ST
     
  11. We actually had a Chevy tracker 2 door with a rag top until we had our third child. We are looking for some bikes for fun but also for commuting .

    I found this with guys getting all Pasolini on their scooters.

    Yep. Chop a car's entire roof off, do away with the A & B pillars and it still isn't the same.

    There's nothing like the visceral feeling of a motorcycle on the move in a rapid manners. Add some lean angles and it's nirvana.

    Unfortunately there's not much in the US. I went to two meets and then that was it. The series was no more.

    Talk about bumping elbows while juggling for position on a go-kart track.

    OP, just so you know that I wouldn't steer you from bikes:

    And may your rides provide what you require . . and be free of traffic and those bluemen in the Hemi-Chargers. (They've got the chase-instincts of Rottweilers.)

    I like that interior only slightly less than the pups...and I like them a lot!
     
  19. Wife went from a 250cc to a 2010 Triumph Scrambler. She moved beyond the 250 very quickly. So fast, that it was almost like wasted money.
    I went from my Yammie 125( I miss the bumble bee colors) to my fathers Honda 750 back in the 80's.
    I do wonder if we baby women and actually start them on bikes that are too small.

    I had a 125cc bike and I suspect that bike was more than 99.9% of GT riders could ever hope to exploit...
