My definition of Vintage Motorcycles is any bike that is 20 years old or older. I don't know or care if that is the correct difinition...it's MINE. And I have had so many from the 1983 Honda GL650 shown above to a literal stable of Honda V65 motorcycles. Let's not forget number Yamaha VMax motorcycles. I have had old Suzuki's ranging from 1970's GT750 WaterBuffalos and numerous Enduros....Honda CB's....Gosh....the list goes on and on.
Yup, I love vintage motorcycles. They will always be my "hearthrob" when it comes to riding. I guess I'm giving away my age here but that's ok...lol. I guess I would be considered "vintage" by many people who know me or see me. I love lots of vintage things...vintage cars...vintage wines...Not vintage food..lol, vintage houses...some vintage women are still quite appealing...thank you very much. But very few things raise my blood pressure and get my blood flowing as quickly as a vintage motorcycle passing me on the freeway, or my seeing one or several parked in a parking lot....love it. And folks...remember, even if you are just a fan of the modern performance motorcycles of today, none of these would have been possible without vintage motorcycles setting the way for future (today's) performance standard to have been possible.

My most likely overall favorite of the performance Vintage Motorcycles I have had the pleasure of riding is probably the Honda V65 series of performance bikes. Below please find a link to my page exclusive to these wonderful motorcycles.

Another of my favorite group of Vintage Motorcycles is the Honda CM line of bikes. What made these distinctively different is that it was a line of motorcycles that were ridden with automatic transmissions. They turned out to be versatile, reliable, and sturdy and I have had numerous numbers of these in my stable. Check the link below for my page exclusive to these wonderful motorcycles.

Yeah, I know the new bikes are "NUCLEAR"...that technology in every respect has truly improved. But call me nostaligc but when a Vintage Motorcycle passes me on the highway or pulls up next to me at a traffic light...my heart literally skips a beat. Folks...if you never have experienced a Vintage Motorcycle and the opportunity ever presents itself....take the "bull by the horns" and take the ride. You won't be sorry.
