What bike(s) do you ride?
Used to have a Norton Commando (sigh). Purchased it used, eventually died of "multi-organ system failure"...i.e. too many expensive problems to fix. Not surprising, being a Norton!
Where is your favorite place(s) to ride?
I used to ride in Western Massachusetts. Beautiful rural countryside. Around here, if I get another bike, I look forward to Skyline Drive, Rte 619 in PW County, out near Lovettsville in Loudoun....
Do you bike to commute? What's your experience like?
I biked both for commuting (short 10 mile commute) and just for the sheer freedom and pleasure of it.
Year-round or seasonal?
Year-round. Less pleasant on the bone-chilling cold & wet days, but biked nonetheless.
What shops do you recommend (sales, service, new/used, accessories)?
The only shop I've spent any time in, talking with the owner, was Extreme Powersports on Rte 1 down near Fredericksburg. The owner seemed nice, very experienced, and passionate about motorcycling.
Your best/worst experience on a bike?
Worst: the day I determined the Norton had turned over for the last time!
