    I actually won this in a drawing back in 2012. I had to pay $5,500 up front to the IRS for the winnings. I do not ride so I left it at the dealership, sold it and, pocketed about $15,000 plus the $5,500 which my daughters went through like "Sherman through Georgia.". Not a fan of bikes.

    To be fair to my daughters, most of the money went to out of state tuition and books, etc. I, on the other hand, did not see a penny of my winnings. I guess that's what Dads are for.

    Bought a Yamaha Virago 750 new in 1996 (not my bike, but it looked exactly like this one):



    Sold that a bit later when we were expecting our first child. Promised the wife I wouldn't own a bike while we had kiddos at home.

    About nine years ago my best friend had to sell his beloved 1974 BMW R60/6 to help fund moving his family to a new city (for work). Took some searching but eventually I found the guy he sold the bike to and, after two years of badgering him on and off, convinced him to sell me the bike. Had it fixed up (back to stock) and sold it to my bud for $1 as a surprise. It's a beauty. This is it in my garage after I replaced the after-market glass packs with OEM mufflers:

    ^^^ Great story, Brad! That was a very cool thing to do for your buddy. HUGE props, man!

    Yeah, it's amazing how much aftermarket stuff people put on motorcycles....yuk!

    Here's my '76 R90/6 when I first bought it.........



    ......and more recently after getting her back to stock form. Rusty mufflers - but they ARE original!

    ***Not my actual bikes but they looked like these

    1992 Suzuki GSXR 1100 bought new in '92ish





    1994 Honda CBR900 RR bought new in '94ish





    I really miss that Suzuki

    Re: Show us your motorcycle(s)!

    Is it a '98?

    THAT is one gorgeous bike, sabanball! Congrats, man. Looks like it's in really great condition. That little seat in the back is coming off, yes?

    I just got a set of rear brake shoes delivered to me today for my '81 Yamaha XT250. Should have her back on the road by the weekend.

    Good luck with your new ride!

    Thank you sir and good eye, it is a '98. I bet that XT is an interesting ride.

    Got a couple of "care" packages in and initiated Project TLC. Swapped a leaky petcock, performed an oil change, swapped plugs, tightened some vacuum leaks and addressed some chrome bits. So far so good.

    The little seat stays for now

    Yeah - looks like I was premature about the little seat as it seems to be part of the factory design - so indeed it should stay.

    Sounds like your Valkyrie found a good home!

    Well.....another VFR followed me home. Just like my other two....an '87 700.

    This one is in pretty good shape outside the dented fuel tank. Runs great - and that Kerker especially sounds fantastic!

    32,000 miles. Recent oil and spark plug change. Tires in good condition. Everything works!
