Harley Davidson 2004 Roadking FLHR
Harley Davidson 1998 95th aniversary Dyna Wide Glide, I plan to keep this one for many years, I hope.
Used to own a 2003 1200 XLH Sportster, sold it after getting the Wide Glide.
68 I am guessing, Honda 90 street bike, It looked sorta like a trail 90 but had a fairing. It never seen the street after I got it. I always run a knobbie tire on back.
Others I rode quite a bit in the distant past, but did not actually own. They belonged to a ranch I used to work for.
Suzuki 250 enduro, early 70's model, two cycle engine, I always loved that bike.
Honda 175 trail/street, It had a dual high and low range transmision like the trail 90's used to have. probably a 1975 or 1976 model. They bought it new while I was working for them but I just can't pin the year down for sure. I guess it was a good bike, but I never liked it that much, because it was taller then the Suzuki 250, and it wasn't as stable in the rought stuff, everyone who rode it, had more problems keeping it on the rubber, and everytime it got dropped you lost a clutch or brake lever, where the old Suzuki seemed to be easier to keep up in the rought stuff, and if it went down, we never seemed to tear anything up.
Back in the 70's we used motorcycles in combination with horses and 4X4 pickups to roundup and move cattle. We did a lot of that. The 4-wheeler had not been invented yet. The bikes worked good for moving cattle long distances in the open but the horse was still the king when the distances got tighter around the cow lots.
