My "other" rig...
2000 Dyna convertible with Daytona sidecar rig.  I'd love to hack the Enfield, but not sure the 500 one lunger is up to that level of abuse.  This thing is great for hauling my son around, he's 10 and just loves it.

TFM,
   
When my kids were younger they loved riding in Dad's Ural.
Now that they're older it's kind of ho-hum (yawn here) for them to ride in my HD hack - which I bet is more Cozy than yours!

Thumper,
I had looked at your page before.  I love the look of the sportster with the solo seat and the Cozy.  It just looks cool, and I'll be that thing will haul the mail!  Mine has a big bore motor and I can actually fit two kids pretty comfortably in the hack.  My wife wouldn't dream of riding pillion, but finds the hack comfortable.  I've never ridden in the chair, but the family tells me it's a pretty smooth ride. ;D

Thumper: Great website..I didn't realize that sidecars are that big..Maybe its because of the spare tire on the back and it was setup for a Ural..You sure had a nice selection of bikes over the years..I'm sure their a huge difference between the Harley and enfield in pulling power..

Fatman: That Daytona sidecar looks like it be a nice ride indeed..Very aerodynamic..

Oh Magoo you done it again

I see you can add models back into your list.  Aprilia!  Not that your average Enfield owner splits his time on a RSV4 Factory Edition or anything.

I must have missed that option when I set it up. Sorry. It won't let me change it now.
 
You can replace this poll with another one and we can transfer the votes over if you want to.

Pedantically, my other bike isn't an "is;" it's a "was"....  Sold off all the GoldWings to pay off the car early, then I bought Fiona because I just can't not have a motorcycle around to play with. And I reduced the monthly loan payment by over $300...  I call it a Win.

   I also used to ride the one pictured below. That picture was of me in 1959 on Block Island (an island 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island, which is not an Island).

This needs to be multiple choice!  A lot of people I know who like bikes view it as a collector hobby and are only limited by space, money and time.  There aren't enough days in the week.

(an island 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island, which is not an Island).

Rhode Island is, in fact an island.  The state is Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.  It's the Providence Plantations part that's on the mainland.
