    Over here, scooters are for pizza delivery.

    That's cool. It's just more practical for me right now. I''ll be doing mostly city riding and here in TO, I can park a scooter on the sidewalk for free and just walk away. Insurance will be cheap as well.

    A bike is still in my future....most likely a cafe racer rebuild but I think I need at least a year of some form of ridership under my belt for insurance purposes.

    None, sorry. If I wear a jacket at all, I usually stick with leather (personal preference) but I also have a Belstaff or two for wet weather. I like the look though, but I'd probably bite the bullet and get a Roadmaster or Trialmaster.

    I got a Frank thomas jacket in a Barbor International inspired style. It's dirt cheap, but does the job really good. No hood though. Why would you need a hood??

    I got my new bike today - a Buell Lightning XB9SX. It was my first time riding in probably 2 or 3 years. Man, I forgot how fun that is.

    Congratulations. How do you like it so far?


    Sucks dude. I clocked 300+ miles on my Fat Boy Lo (gratuitous pic below) around the Smokies and hope to ride until at least Thanksgiving.. Did you get out much this summer?

    Sadly, no -- between my kids and all my drinking, rides were few and far between ... :plain:

    Good. It has a Jardine exhaust, a Buell race chip, and K&N air filter on it. I put about 35 miles on this weekend - not much, but it is getting into the 40s and windy here, so I just tooled around town.

    It is just fun to get on a bike again - unfortunately, I'll have a long winter of waiting now as they are forecasting snow Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Nothing worse than buying a bike at the end of the riding season. I did that myself with a Street Bob that I rode a few hundred miles before having to store for the winter..
