Last year my stable grew. I am an owner of a 2014 Honda CTX 700 DCT Motorcycle. Its a great bike and suits my needs. It does what it needs to do and It will get me to where I need to go while the 1982 CB750sc gets overhauled.

Just one at the moment - 95 Kawasaki Voyager.  I call it "Fungus, I didn't like it initially, but it's growing on me...

I'm on the lookout for an ST1100 or Concours.  Fungus needs some cosmetic help, and I refuse to be left without a bike

Ok, I lied....no, not really, I did say I was on the look out for another bike.  I wanted an ST1100, but stumbled across this and couldn't resist:



A 2003 ST1300 ABS with 59K on it.  Got it for $2600.  Not exactly what I wanted, but it was too good to pass up.  It has a Day Long seat, throttle lock, fairing extenders and a couple other things I'm not sure about yet.  I pick it up today so I'll have more time to look through it.

Congrats on scoring a good bike. I have the same year model and couldn't be happier with the bike.  Your Russel Day Long can take you many thousand mile days.  Best part of ST1300 is the adjustable electronic windshield. You can adjust the heights to any riding conditions with a push of  the button.

Can't say that I'm happy with the seat.  I'm thinking it was built for someone shorter, or may taller than me.  The "cup" seems too far forward for me.  I'm thinking I'll sell it and get a Sargent.  Other than that, I like the bike a lot.

Looks like I might be up to a 3rd soon.  I was riding last week with my brother, on the way home, Fungus started "stuttering" on occasion.  Seemed to get worse as I got closer to home.  Next day the wife was feeling well enough to want to go for a ride.  Took the bike up to get some gas - no issues.  Get home, get set up to go, and it won't start.  Got it running, and started testing and it seems the alternator has gone out.  Bike only had just over 40k on it.  So, the wife is aggravated, this is the 3rd time she's felt good enough for a ride, and the bike had issues.  She said I should have just gotten her a 'Wing.  So, guess I'll be looking for one of those now. 

Not sure whether I'll be keeping the Voyager or not after I fix it.  They don't seem to be a very sought after bike, so it's not worth much.

Re-Animating this thread a little... Two bikes in the stable... Both Honda twins. Brand new CMX500 Rebel, and a new-to-me 1997 CB250 Nighthawk. I'd like to get a couple of project bikes, but currently don't have room.

I always wanted a stable but never thought I'd have one.  After all, you can only ride one at a time, right?
However, I now find myself in possession of a 1984 Nighthawk S which I will be doing a thorough refurb on over the next year or two, including doing something a little subtle but personal with the paintwork, a 2012 NC700X in pristine condition, and a 2005 Vespa GT200 which is actually my wife's.  I have a couple of non-running Motobecane mopeds as well, rotting away in the garage.

P.S.  Tim...how do I make these images show up in the post like the other folks have?


In Flickr, click on any of your pictures so that's all you're looking at.  Lower right corner of the screen there is a series of icons.  The middle one is an arrow curling to the right; if you hover your mouse over it a hint will pop up saying "Share Photo."  Click that.  A window opens on top of the picture.  The first time you do this it will be under the tab "Share" and will have icons for Facebook, Twitter, etc.  Ignore that and click on the "BBCode" heading instead.  I normally set the lower box to the Medium setting that has one of the dimensions as 800.
Assuming you're using a PC, make sure the line with the link in it is highlighted.  Press and hold CTRL, then press C.  Let go of both.  Change to the window for this forum and after clicking in the white box where you normally type, press and hold CTRL, then press V.  The share code should appear.

I dont need all the support functions of the new bikes (I only miss an ABS) and I like to repair everything by my own, which is too complicated at new bikes (too many special tools are required)
