What kind do you have? I do not own a motorcycle, but I sure wish I could afford a chopper. Yes folks, I am an Orange County Chopper fan. The drama on the show doesn't interest me one bit, its all about the bikes and how they make them. I am not exactly sure what kind I would have them build if I could afford it. I would have to seriously think about that one. What would you have them build?

I have a moped at the minute. But I want a motorcycle so that I can ride on the motorway ¬¬ UK law is stupid to moped drivers.

Yeah, it is no better here in America. We aren't supposed to have them on the road either.

I don't have a motorcyle I have never even been on one. I think they are really neat though. I love those motorcycles they make on Orange Country Choppers they are really neat. My father in law used to be into motorcycles but I don't think he has rode one for quite awhile now.

My husband has two Harleys, a black FXR and a blue Chopper he's building now. He and I are big fans of that show, too, but watching it makes him want to get into bending steel and all that other good stuff they do. If I could afford to have them build a bike for me I would want it to be black with silver stars made to look like they were shimmering...day or night.

That sounds awesome. Of course in this age of DIY sites and stuff, you can learn to do anything really.

i have been a fan of motorcycles lately because of high gas prices. i really like motorcycles because they are more environmentally friendly than other vehicles out there. i am a fan of scooters. i just think scooters are very cute and amazing that it could save you a lot of money but ofcourse it is not very practical when you have a family to think about.

When I was twenty, I had a Tiger Triumph 125. *drifts off to fond memories*. But it was always "broken" so my roomate, Helen, would zip us around on her Yamaha. If I were to get a motorcycle today, I would get a Bonneville Triumph 350. I really love the 1969 ones. It's funny how life gives us opportunities depending on the choices we take. Most people with motorcycles I know have Harleys. And those Harleys are always broken. I'll stick with my love of Triumphs. Less work, easier maintenance. And not just because I was raised in England. LOL
