    What bikes would you like to ride..

    To go with what I would like to get back.. Always liked the look of the Big Dog Mastiff, thought it would be nice to cruise on. Have ridden a BMW but never a Ducati. Having worked part time at a Yamaha dealer that was owned by a friend I got to test many different bikes so it's tough for me to think of too many.
    The R1 always amazed me with the power that the newer bikes have. They have come a long way.

    I remember the head mechanic going through the procedures on a new one with a middle aged guy that had just purchased it. He started to get annoyed with all the precautions and warnings that we were required to pass along and said he was all set and wanted to leave. Again he warned him of the coating on the tires and that it could take 50 miles or so to really clean them off. He hopped on the bike and pulled out in front of the shop. Tried to take off like a hero and immediately laid it down. I went out and picked it up and walked it towards the garage. Asked him if he was leaving it to get repairs done, he said no. I walked it out to the pavement and "cleaned" off the tire for him with a little throttle and brake and off he went..
