How many motorcycle riders on here?

This question came to my mind this morning, figured I'd ask how many people are on here also ride a motorcycle along with enjoying their Boxsters?

If you do, shout out and pics would be great.

I have owned several over the last 10 years but right now, I ride a 2006 Yamaha R1 (Red).

25 to 30 years back I had a crotch rocket (1987 GSXR750) when they were first coming into vogue, now it's mainly dirt.

I race harescrambles and enduros. Ice racing in the winter. I dabbled in sportbikes for a while but gave it up.

2006 Triumph Daytona 675 here. She's got 33k on her so by sport bike standards not bad.

I commute by bike about 80 miles per day, 365 in the PNW. Recently had as many as 6 bikes but paired the number down so I could buy my Boxster.

The last bike standing is my '08 Triumph Tiger 1050, currently at 65k miles.

I've got a soft spot for my black KTM's and a certain silver Porsche

2007 450 EXC. The poor thing has been upside down, flipped backwards and completely submerged underwater...not all on the same day though



2006 950 Adventure. Great all-around bike. Lotsa fun if you enjoy breaking the rear end loose at 100 mph on dirt roads. Not for the faint of heart.



...and then there's the "mule". It's a tank of a bike. Doesn't do anything well but does everything adequately.

Two wheels spirit! Nice to see some of your rides... love them ALL

Here goes a full HRC engine kit packed with a few tricks. That thing throws out little over 202rwhp :/ And before you ask... yes it cost a lot in tires and brake pads.

Another of my favourite loisir, superbike racing. Once a months; full 2-days weekend practice... or stress management... call it what you want! Track/circuits only, never been on a road bike (mum never allowed that). I also fly kites with my wife some other times



















You asked for pics lol

I rode on the street from 1969 to 2000. I quit riding after hitting a mattress on the freeway.

Last bike....

Did someone say bikes? I restored a 1965 Triumph T120C and my daily ride is a 1998 Ducati 900CR. I'm currently restoring a 1973 Norton Commando.

1997 Ducati 900 SS/SP track bike
2007 Honda CBR1000RR
2005 MV Agusta F4-1000s (sold)
2007 Ducati ST3s (sold)
1998 Ducati 900 SS/FE #299 (sold)
1992 Honda CBR900RR (sold)

Those are my most recent bikes; over 49 years of riding motorcycles I've owned somewhere around 17 that I can remember. Also owned several Yamaha street bikes, a bunch of KTM MX and enduro bikes (raced MX and enduro on and off for 30 years or so). Quit riding dirt bikes a few years ago because I kept hurting myself! Now I get my thrills doing track days on pavement.

Nine8Six, what is a loisir? And I've got news for you: you may not ride on the street, but a CBR1000RR is most certainly a road bike (it's not a dirt bike !)

I grew up on motorcycles starting on a minibike with a Briggs & Stratton lawnmower engine. I'm remembering some odd ones now from my teens like: Chaparral 80, Harley Davidson 125 Rapido, and Moto-Guzzi 125 Sport. I had a slew of Japanese 70s & early 80s dirt/enduro 175cc-360cc.
Through the 80s I ended up on a Norton 850 Commando. Yellow, low handlebars, 1/4 faring. Quit riding in the early 90s. I was too dangerous.
Now I'm 'mature'. I can ride sitting up and can allow other vehicles to pass me. My family recently let me buy:



No helmet in the photo, but the bike doesn't move without one.

^ I bet Mr The Cat can't assist in driving this one

This got to be the best car owner's show-my-bike's thread of all time. Love to see some other members' bike!!! Looks like plenty of fun going on here

Joe - loisir.... French for leisure. Nice CBR you got there
