General Motorcycle Discussion / Re: It's time to say goodbye (almost)

There is no denying this is a great forum and an active one at that.  I don't see much wrenching going on on the BMW forums.  Captainkirk, if I had place to store the bike, I would have kept the NH.  Aycaramba, I love the sound of this bike, it's unique.  I do have more expenses on the horizon but in time.

I happened to be scheduled for an Advanced Rider Course (a refresher from 4 years ago, a promise I made when I got into this hobby that I will take a class every 3-4 years) so it will be great to try it out all day tomorrow and get used to it.

Your Ride Reports / Re: Carpe Diem!!!

You definitely seized the day(s) Pants.  Been a long time since we have had a Pants ride report on NHF so thanks for sharing your incredible trip.  I've been to a few of the places you traveled, but never to Yosemite, so now that is a must.  I know this is something you will never forget.  I am glad  that you got to live your dream.

General Motorcycle Discussion / old shoes
« Last post by viffer on June 23, 2017, 01:22:04 PM »
So for the past week I've been riding the Nighthawk while the VFR sits. It's been 17 years since I last owned or rode her. The more I ride, the more it feels like that comfy old pair of shoes that just fit right. Now don't get me wrong the VFR is an awesome ride. We can easily click off endless miles and the twisties are a blast. It has seductive power, awesome brakes, and great handling. The Nighthawk however feels much better for my daily commute, easily zipping thru traffic with nimble steering and tailor made gearing. I think I'll keep her around.....

When I "upgraded" from my Seca 550 to my Buell Cyclone 15 years ago, I thought that was it, but lo and behold, I still have the Seca plus my Nighthawk. It's nice to have a change of pace every so often and it's nice to have a spare bike if one is down for maintenance. When I bought the Nighthawk it was as a flipper but after riding it I knew it was gonna stick around; no arguments. I try to afford the bikes equal time during the riding season. Liability only runs around $15.00 a year apiece for the standby bikes.
Incidentally, this forum is the only motorcycle one I stay active on. It's because of the people and the attitude!

I agree about the price. I paid on the high side when I got mine, so it would be nice to recoup much of that when the time comes to sell.

This latest turnover of bikes amongst my acquaintances has me thinking hard about doing the same. I still love my NH, especially its no-hassle nature. And it's design is old enough that its retro look is starting to be reflected in new models, which is kind of fun. But fuel injection and some more modern doo-dads would also be nice to have.

My NH isn't going anywhere for the time-being, since it does everything I nees it to do for now. But there are other bikes I'd like to experience. I'm more of a buy-and-hold type, but if I'm going to experiment, I guess a motorcycle is the way to do it.

And I love that BMW boxer...and that 900cc Yamaha triple...

Good to hear about the quick sale and awesome to hear about the nighthawk holding its value so well. While I have no immediate plans whatsoever of getting rid of mine, its good to know itll still fetch a fair penny around here if and when that time comes.

I am amazed how many legit looking people behind the emails with local phone numbers reached out to me that just seemed to be scammers.  All had one thing in common, they offered me anywhere from $200 to $1000 more than the asking price but wanted to do business via paypal only.


Are people still falling for that scam?


Chalk this one up for the good guys.

Yes, doesn't strike me as an internet guy.  Let's see.

Maybe I'll get a recruiting fee?!


Yeah, a bit odd, but that describes most of his business model.


I was tempted to click the link, just to see what the survey was all about, but I've been zapped by one too many phishing attempts to do feel totally comfortable doing so.
