Non Harley Motorcycles
« on: July 02, 2007, 12:09:19 PM »

Hello All,

I was just wondering how many of you have non-Harley motorcycles.  I recently purchased a new 2006 Honda CBR 1000 RR.  The main reason for purchasing the bike was for preservation purposes of my SEUC2.  Because here I ride to work and it rains daily then the sun comes out and gives the paint and chrome a nice waterspot pattern, plus with the commute in the afternoon it is pretty slow and the engine gets pretty hot in stop and go traffic.  I know   :worthless: but I will post some soon.

Yeh, I commute on a little Yamaha 125cc, it saves on the gas, at the equivalent of your $9+ per gallon I can't afford anything else.  I too use it when the weather is crap.

Since that has to be 90% tax, why do people there put up with it?  I mean, I understand the need to fund the gov't, but you guys are getting screwed.

We don't currently have a non- Harley in the stable, but I would not be able to ride my SEEG if I had not started on a smaller bike. I learned to ride on an 800 Susuki Intruder, and a few years later traded it in on a 1500 Intruder.  The latter broke me of my fear of the big tank.  Once I got over the mental image of a bigger looking bike, I have never had trouble riding a touring HD bike.  I did, however, have a lot of trouble trying to ride a SE Dyna last Sept at York Open House.  Just cause you can ride a bigger bike, does not mean you can ride a smaller bike.  I've learned my lessons.

I didn't realize there were any other types of bikes other than Harley! I thought those other things were fast bicycles with ugly people on them. Oh well, had a 1975 Honda 750k when I was 15 and a 1986 Honda VF1100 at 21 that I used to ride, but those were years ago and I only rode them to save fuel, even tho it was under a dollar then.  ;) I don't have any pics of those and even if I did its like that ugly girl you never told your friends about, fun to ride as long as no one sees you on them. Cheers!

No Non-Harleys in the stable at this point other than the John Deere, (and as mentioned earlier, it overheats in traffic  :P

I have, however,  in the past had some very nice non-harleys, to whit, honda magna's, a couple of Monsters from the Duc folks, and one hyabusa...    I graduated to the Harleys because I am getting older, the reflexes aren't as finely tuned, the other bikes became too much temptation coupled with actual HIGH PERFORMANCE AND HANDLING for me to safely expose my existance to.  I kinda need to stick around for the wife and kids... and I was suffering under a severe speed and corner addiction, ( two tickets in UK for speen in excess of 180 Mph...  :oops:  )     So, when we moved back stateside from the UK, I took a long hard look at the traffic and road surfaces in Seattle, and said to myself, "'k self!  it's time to ride a LOT slower, so you might as well start LOOKING cool..."  And I started buying cruisers again!, (So came the FXR, then FXDS-conv, then FXDL, then FXST, and now the SEEG2, with a Buell or two in there in betwixt as trainer bikes for the boss lady...)   

I've decided I really like 'em.  Even though they aren't REAL motorcycles, Harley's are pretty nice to ride around on, and they don't have the ugly cousin kissing factor attached to them for some reason....  they actually seem to attract folks that I want to talk too, instead of the little chicky things that suddenly looked horrified when I took off my helmet 'cuz I'm OLD!...   :confused5:

I like the Buells.....the older ones like the S3.  Would love to find one just to keep around for fun.
Funny thing is, Bro............Harleys ARE THE REAL MOTORCYCLE.  Actually, that's not funny.  It's true.  They've been around longer than the jap bikes.  The others are just, well, like we said in Korea..........not quite right.
As for the chicky things, you aren't too much older than me...........I don't get that "horrified" look from them.  It's nice to know you still "Got it!"   :2vrolijk_21:

probably enough to buy a 'non-harley' sport bike.  And my guess is that the SEEG will probably hold it's resale value better than the haybusa.  Just a 'guess' on my part.  ??? spyder

spyder

not to take up for the busa but the one I had was the most thrilling, fastest bike I have ever ridden.(177 RWH)
and,,,,,, I sold it back to the guy I bought it from,,,9 months later and 7000 miles for exactly what I paid for it.
that's the exception ,not the rule in jap bike ownership

the guy was building a house and needed some cash.


I was glad to get rid of it,,,,, it scared the chit out of me more times than I care to remember.

Hey Chip, don't get me wrong, I'd love to have one (hayabusa) if I had any self-control.......but, I know better.  I was only speaking of resale comparison.  And that, is something that can change in a short period.  I think the SEEGs are one of the better scooters for holding resale value that's out there right now......of course, most scooters are not good investments ($$$-wise)  :oops: har!  :huepfenlol2: spyder

If I recognize the hummingbird hum behind me, and glance in my rear view enough to recognize that a motorcycle would like to pass me, I pull over to the far right side of the road and wave them on.  They are sure not going to get in my way in front of me.

......of course, most scooters are not good investments ($$$-wise) 

I'll tell you what the biggest diff. is between HD and non-HD owners ... people who have HD's take care of them, and that helps resale a lot.  Hats off to the Jap/German/Brit/Italian owners who actually do keep their bikes clean and maintained - don't mean to hack anyone in the forum off here - but you're few and far between.  Judging from what I see on the road, Jap bike owners are the worst by far.  I had pretty good luck with reselling my own Yamahas and Hondas, but they were kept garaged, detailed, and covered, and I had full maintenance records and receipts.  I sold my Valkyrie for $500 less than I paid for it, 30k miles later.

spyder

not to take up for the busa but the one I had was the most thrilling, fastest bike I have ever ridden.(177 RWH)
and,,,,,, I sold it back to the guy I bought it from,,,9 months later and 7000 miles for exactly what I paid for it.
that's the exception ,not the rule in jap bike ownership

the guy was building a house and needed some cash.


I was glad to get rid of it,,,,, it scared the chit out of me more times than I care to remember.
Traded 177 hp for the Lowrider with 77.
