    I have owned three bikes. My first was an 04 800 Kawasaki Vulcan. Next came the 07 Heritage. Man I did love that bike. My favorite, however, is my current ride, an 09 Street Glide. I do miss my Heritage at times though.

    My first ride was back in the 60's growing up in North Jersey. It was a '62 BSA "Shooting Star". I believe it was 500cc's. After the service my bride and I moved to South Jersey where we still reside. About 15 years ago, I got back into motorcycling with a Kawasaki Vulcan. Great bike, typically Japanese, rode it for about 10 years until I got my '99 Ultra. No doubt about it, the Ultra is my favorite.

    I have loved all my bikes My XS1100 Yamaha I tricked up with a 1179 kit and a bunch of other engine work, my Gl1100 Goldwing I had 150,000 miles on, my S3t Buell Thunderbolt I still have and my FLHT is great. Can't really say I have a favorite.

    No contest - my SG is my favorite. Beats out everything from the Benelli minibike to the Suzuki GS550 to the Honda Sabre and even my Sportster!

    I've had numerous bikes over the years, and there are a few that I wish I had never gotten rid of. However, I wouldn't compare any of them to my Ultra. She's a keeper!

    My favorite is my current bike - 08 Heritage.

    But my last 3 bikes (92 Yamaha Seca 650, 95 Virago 1100, 05 Sportster 1200) all had/have some great points and I would own them all again.

    In fact, I'm probably going to buy another Virago and Seca for my future collection. I'm getting older, but everytime I ride the Sporty, I want a sport bike again.

    First one was in 1972 and was the Italian imported for Harley 90 cc. Whopping 111 miles per gallon at about 48 mph top speed.
    Next was a 1974 350cc Sprint
    Then a 1975 1000cc Sportie ( fast as heck but couldn't see out of the mirrors.)
    Then a 1976 1200cc FXE Superglide ( got trashed by "I didn't see you." cager )
    Followed by a 1977 1200 cc Superglide..kept it until 1985

    Now a 2008 FXSTC Softail Custom. Without a doubt, both in ride and functions, this bike is far superior to all the others.

    I would still like to ride a FXE again just for old times sake.
