Ok, I'm Lyle. 54 years old, been riding since I was 15, varied selection of dual sport and road bikes. Standard progression, new Honda SL175 in high school then a CB 350. Next was an Elsinore followed by a Yamaha RD350. Stepped up to a 650 Special then onto a Kawasaki 750 with a fairing. Had an XS 850 Yamaha then moved up to the 1100 Special which I drunkenly smashed into a phone pole at 100 mph. Stopped drinking that night! Spent the last 15 years on an 83 Suzuki 1100 GK with the fairing and hard bags. Last year I bought an 83 Honda XL 600 to get back to my dual sport roots. This summer I passed the Suzuki on to one of my sons and bought myself a 2007 Yamaha VStar 1300. There you have it, me in a nutshell.
