Current ride: 2013 Triumph Street Triple R - best handling bike to date. First ride - 1960 Zundapp 350 (in 1961). Best previous rides: 82 Honda Ascot Twin, 78 Yamaha XS 650, 75 Yamaha RD 400. Numerous others in between, including a 2007 HD Sportster 1200. Always did my own wrenching but with the Triumph, this gets real iffy. Too many electronic doodads.
