Here's my baby...a 2000 Yamaha V Star Custom.
Given, it's not a Harley or a custom build, but nothing quite compares to the feeling I get riding through the canyons on a beautiful day with the feeling of the v twin thumping away.

It's my escape from the world when I need it.  To an old dude with a really bad back, it's therapy with dual carbs and can take my mind off my pain unlike anything else can.

Here she is in the American River canyon after a long awesome ride....

You got the right Idea there mate.

Would still be riding bikes, but I got a Metal Shoulder and a Gammy Leg and a preference for riding like a lunatic; so I just had to pack it in.
Death was tapping me on the arm big time.

Miss it like hell.   Enjoy   cheers

I hear ya. My days are numbered riding. I feel the tapping on my arm too. I used to be a madman riding dirt bikes, extreme snowboarding, (I was really into cliff jumping on my board) vert half pipe skateboarding, surfing, hang gliding....then I had a major back surgery in 1997. They installed 4 huge screws and a few titanium brackets. I was only 26. It was a mixed blessing. As much as I hate the constant pain and all the limitations (no more surfing, snowboarding, dirt bikes) I sometimes feel like if it hadn't happened to me, I wouldn't be here today. I was a pretty reckless dude back in my 20's. I'm 44 now and anything "extreme" I do now isn't going to land me in the hospital, or worse....
I still love riding my street bike. But I probably don't have much longer til I pack it in too.
Thank god for music. Now I just need to learn to play well. I'm only naturally talented at drums which is hard to do with my back problems. The stringed instruments are very hard to me to get beyond beginner level.
Happy New Year to ya!
