So whats everyone riding these days?

So apparently a lot of people are changing up what they ride. I've seen some people now ride cruisers ect.

I've got a new motor in my Old Kaw and it feels like a brand new bike, got a new set of Pilot Power 2ct's and now I can enjoy riding again!

2000 ZRX1100

I have 2 bikes now, a '09 Aprilia Tuono for fun rides and an '06 VFR800 for commuting and really long trips. I am currently working on turning over the odometer on the VFR, up to 78000+ so far

Still have the '01 748, and it still looks like it came off the showroom floor.

Obligatory....your mom.

Still have the 748 (not showroom clean ) and 6R. Haven't ridden in a long time though.

2007 GSXR 600. Just picked it up from a co-worker. Has 8500 miles on it, pipes, Powercommander, and a few other things. Just ordered sliders and picking up a new helmet tomorrow. Can't decided if I want to go with the matte black or a neon "high visibility" helmet. Will post in the new member section with explanation and history with ESB.

Wow. A new legitimate motorcycle post on eSB. Well played, OB, well played indeed.

Still commuting on the EX250 most work days, and getting out on the rest--CX500, KLR650, VFR, and 600RR--just enough to spare me any maintenance headaches. Been busy with the new(-to-me) house/garage/"south compound" that that's about all I can manage. The VFR is scheduled to ride to Austin for the GP next month if my brother gets off his *ss and commits. The CB360 technically just needs the carbs reinstalled to get back on the road, but I want to sandblast the motor first, and I've not got my stuff set up for that yet. The Seca turbo is awaiting a turbo rebuild--got the parts, just need the time (like with everything ). On the front burner is the latest acquisition, a '92 GSXR1100 which I've had out a few times and is now on stands awaiting installation of a few upgrades: new rotors, Race Tech gold valves, 520 chain and sprockets, Spiegler braided lines, new Shindy steering damper, etc. And all the others are still awaiting their turn.

Thats a shit load of projects, you sound like a motorcycle horder. I think motorcycle hording is acceptable hording though. I have a buddy that hordes motorcycles, he has like 4 in his garage, and two in back yard. All are projects that never get done because he is usually to busy helping others.
I'd love to see pics of the 92 Gsxr1100, my first bike was a Gsxr1100 and it was the coolest thing ever to me

My second 2004 VFR. This makes #4, after a very brief detour to Italy for a Hypermotard S.

Well, I wouldn't call myself a motorcycle hoarder ; I do make progress on most all of them and have put a number of them on the road. And the vast majority of them were acquired before I knew I'd have another house to rehab, which--albeit temporarily--presently occupies much of my bike hobby time. As for the GSXR, I've always wanted one of the old air/oil-cooleds, and this one fit the bill for an old school endurance racer inspired build. Sorry, no pics besides a few cell phone shots; it's been neglected/squid-owned, so the bodywork is ratty (new aftermarket race bodywork will be acquired), and the thing is stripped down and up on stands now--and, along with all the bikes, trapped in the garage for a week while my new driveway is poured.
