My old 2001 H-D FLHR. Motor redone with S & S heads, gear-driven high-lift cams, Super E carb, and more. Fast, but had a bad wobble at about 75 mph. Nevertheless, rode it through western Canada, western U.S., and Mexico. The bike that converted me to BMW motorcycles.

My old 1995 H-D FLSTC. One of my all-time favorite bikes. Many thousands of miles and memories.

My old Honda Shadow Ace, probably an early 90s model, on one of its many western U.S. trips.

An oldie but a goodie, I covered a large portion of the western U.S. on this Kawasaki Vulcan 700.

Another bike being inappropriately used as a racer, my old 2015 BMW R1200 GS Adventure. One of the reasons I love GSs is that they are so versatile. The bike handled amazingly well. Motoworks Track Day at Gingerman Raceway, probably 2016.
