    Ownership Verified: Rider on The Strom

    Well, after selling the Bandit, I decided to buy a bike I've wanted to have since I got into riding six years ago. A Suzuki V-Strom. These bikes have finally come down in value enough that I don't have to sell one of my kidneys to afford one so I jumped on the first well-priced bike I could...

    Ownership Verified: V-Star 650, Two-Wheeled Battlecruiser

    So, let me start by saying that this is NOT the replacement for my Bandit. This was a cheap beater bike that I found last summer. It belonged to a buddy of mine who bar-tended at a local comedy club I used to frequent. The guy rode it for a while, then parked it at his parents house in South...

    Ownership Verified: Rossco and The Bandit!

    Well, I figured it's about time I had a PYC thread for this bike. It's the official replacement for my old '83 Honda Shadow. a 2003 Suzuki Bandit GSF600s. It's not the most sophisticated bike I've ever owned, but it should pull me through until I get my nighthawk running. And the proof pic...

    No 56k: RMurray's Honda Shadow

    This is my first motorcycle, a 1983 Honda Shadow vt500c. I bought it in June, with 13,7XX miles on it . I got my license in August so I haven't got to put too many miles on it so the Odometer reads about 16k now. But it's been a great reliable bike. But with riding season winding down in the...
