Any Motorcyclists Here?

And if so, what do you ride?

Been a long time rider and my current ride is the latest Yamaha Tracer 900 GT. I've previously owned a Kawasaki Z750, a Yamaha TRX 850 (a beautiful sounding twin) and a Yamaha SRX 250.

So, are there any riders on the forum? 🏍

I’ve ridden my whole life and have commuted every day on my Triumph Bonneville for the last five years. I also fix up and flip 70’s/80’s motorcycles and mopeds as a side hustle, but not so much lately.

Nice bike. You obviously like the classic look.

Thanks man. My commute got about 30 miles longer a year or so ago, and to be honest, every morning and night I find myself wishing I had something like your new ride or a GS 1200. Love what Yamaha has done stylistically the last few years, starting with the FZ line. Great blend of sport and touring. Wonderful choice for a new bike 👍

I couldn't rave about it enough, to be honest. It handles like a dream in the twisty bits (more flick-able than the actual bikes I've owned that were more sporty) and is rock solid on long haul runs, which I do a lot of on it. Power to spare and all the mod cons. Electronic cruise control on a motorcycle is a game-changer when you do long trips.

Oh, I can imagine. Once or twice a year, my lady and I will throw gear on our bikes and head to the coast or the mountains for a few days. She uses one of those thumb throttle controls for pseudo cruise control, but I hate them. I’d kill to be able to actually. take my right hand off the throttle on those long trips.
