Hi people, i have been riding for 12 years. i have just bought my 7th bike and my first Harley. i cant explain why i change bikes so often. i intend to keep my Street 500 for at least 5 years though. i have had 2 non LAMS bikes and although the power was great, the weight wasnt........so many people jump to a big bike but when you approaching 300kilos, that is getting up there.
