Honda 919 in matte uranium green.
KTM 625 Duke II
That later Italian job actually has a quiet clutch, my 99 duc 996 monposta had the: “Hey you’ve got a rod knocking” loud clutch.
Yup, 88 NT 650 Hawk GT. Loved that bike & re learned how to actually ride fast on that 47hp twin. Almost bought a mint low mileage one this spring.
SV 650 74hp wider version of the NT but with a cheaper swing arm.
I had two SV’s actually, gave the yellow one to my brother when he graduated from Harvard. Bought myself a second gen down the road some time later.
99 ZRX 1100 Eddie Lawson replica. Great UJM, daily commuted that thing a lot.
Yes, Suzuki’s short lived B-King. A naked de-tuned Hayabusa.
Got it as a new leftover for half price. Had a few Busa’s before it and I thought what could be better than a Hayabusa with an upright riding position. Downside was that the suspension was pretty harsh and it did not handle nearly as well as a Busa, not to mention it wasn’t all that good with a passenger on it.
Was still a hoon beast.
I rode one about 20 years ago that was built as a drag bike but was still street legal (sort-of). It was supercharged, slammed, had a chain drive conversion, skinny Kosman front wheel with a single disc, and, what was most likely a car tire in the back. I didn't turn worth a crap (you had to stay as vertical as possible to avoid grinding away a lot of expensive moto-parts) but, in a straight line it was quite entertaining. It was incredibly stupid as a street bike but, if I had the money.....
I've had an eye out for a crashed 'Busa for a while..... and a Smart Car with a blown engine.
It's power adjustable for height on the fly
The OP rewrote the original post after my comment.
It was much less descriptive originally.
Also, I've owned and ridden multiple high performance bikes, including 6 GSXR's, CBR's, The Yamaha R series, and my stage 4 Dyna. I've spent more money on track days than I care to admit.
I'm fully aware you are a motorcycle hobbyist as well, however that new Goldwing is no geezer bike I can assure you. It will be my next purchase.
You should ride one sometime just to enjoy something new besides unsuspecting younger women
Ride safe my friends
I owned and rode more Honda's then any other brand. IMO, they build the highest quality bikes on the road.
If I were in the market, that Gold Wing (as a youngster we used to refer to them as lead wings) would be high on my radar.
This is something I always wanted to build and ride. An original 1000cc gold wing, with spoke wheels. No crappy bags or aftermarket fairing. This one appears to have comstar wheels, otherwise it would be perfect.
I'd stick with the Harley. You look fine standing next to it.
I just picked up a 2019 Honda CB300R ABS on July 5th. I’ve only got 80 miles on it. I bought it for a commuter bike, and will be putting a trunk on it when I get back from the trip I’m on. With the ABS it weighs 317lbs. The IMU on this bike is pretty sophisticated for a bike at this price point. I don’t know much about motorcycle ABS yet, but I know a lot about anti skid on airplanes, and anything that keeps a machine from skidding is alright with me. I like this bike. I probably should have kept my 390 Duke, but at the time I sold, I had not been on it for two years. The urge just hit me again. To me, this is the modern day UJM. It’s also been called a Grom for adults. Lol.
I also like the Z900RS and would put a brocks streetmeg full exhaust on it..
That’s funny...and I will be telling that joke like I made it up.
Triumph Thruxton R...
Misread subject line at first. Thought it said aging bike for naked rider.

Every so often I go to CycleTrader to look for Kawi ZRX's. Sadly my riding days are behind me. My eyes and reflexes have gone the way of all flesh. But I do love those bikes. Today I saw one on CT with only 4xxx miles for $6800. That's a lot of fun per dollar!
I like a low mileage bike but geez that’s only a few hundred from what it cost brand new in 1999.
They ain’t that hard to find around me actually.
