1988 Motomarina Sebring Moped – This is where it all started for me – this white “toptank” moped on which I learned to ride and wrench. I got it when I was 14 years old and rode it over 12,000 miles until I finally got my auto license at 16. I modified the motor so this ‘ped could cruise at 50+ mph.
1981 Kawasaki 440 LTD: Purchased in 1997 as my first motorcycle, while I waited for my Harley Sportster to arrive. Harleys has waiting lists back then! Sold after 6 months and 8,000 miles.
1998 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Custom: My first new motorcycle, and main machine from 1998-2006. It was a great motorcycle that took me to many states and adventures.
1987 Motomarina Sebring: Found dead in June 1999. Rehabilitated and sold a month later.
1984 Yamaha RZ-350 Kenny Roberts: This two stroke beast was found buried in my first house’s backyard in 1997. We fixed it up, got it to run, and then sold it. Should’ve kept it!
1990 Suzuki GSXR-750: “El Diablo” with a custom red paint job. I had it for a few months in 2000 and sold it before it could kill me.
1973 BMW R75/5: This 1973 BMW R75/5 Long Wheelbase Toaster was my first airhead. I took it down to the frame for a restoration, but never got it back together. This is how it looked when I bought it in 2003.
2001 Tomos Moped: Another dead ‘ped resurrected. A simple carb clean was all she needed. Bought and sold in May 2004.
1974 BMW R90/6: This was my second airhead, owned from 2004-2008. This picture of it at High Point (NJ) was the cover of BMW Owner’s News March 2008 issue.
2004 BMW R1150RT: This Titan Gray RT replaced my Sportster as my daily rider from July 2006 – January 2010. Shown here in Utah in 2007, this RT carried me across the entire USA and back, and never complained once. A wonderful motorcycle in every respect.
1977 BMW R100S: This Titan Gray RT replaced my Sportster as my daily rider from July 2006 – January 2010. Shown here in Utah in 2007, this RT carried me across the entire USA and back, and never complained once. A wonderful motorcycle in every respect.
2009 BMW R1200RT: This Titan Gray RT replaced my Sportster as my daily rider from July 2006 – January 2010. Shown here in Utah in 2007, this RT carried me across the entire USA and back, and never complained once. A wonderful motorcycle in every respect.
2007 Buell Blast: This Arctic White Blast joined the stable from March 2010 to April 2012. The stock intake and exhaust were quickly junked in favor of free-flowing aftermarket parts. It was like a crude minibike on steroids.
1984 Puch Austro-Daimler: I found this untra-rare 2-speed Puch in late 2010. All she needed was a carb cleaning! Ran like a champ, and sold in the spring of 2011.

2015 BMW R1200RT: My current daily rider, and subject of many modifications!
