I used to ride, but I dumped it in the sand a few years back (end of the winter road sand) and I haven't got back on (yet). I rode a 1983 Honda Nighthawk 650. My husband rides. He just traded in his 2000 Suzuki Intruder for a brand new 2007 Suzuki Boulevard C50T loaded. Finally it's getting warm enough to ride around here (Central MA), but the roads are soaked with melting snow and full of sand.
I love the V-Stars, very classy look. I heard Dallas was nuts for traffic. We're pretty lucky to have a lot of country and back roads to enjoy. I do not like riding on the highway at all, it's so dangerous.
