Member Info: As I have gone through life, I have come to realize the importance of comfort (or maybe it’s just old age). I have gone from riding smaller, more maneuverable bikes to riding the big boy’s. The bike I have now is just a step away from old age, or Gold Wing. I am not quite ready for that “wing ding” stage just yet though. I recently heard someone say something that I wish all of the “stuck up” Harley riders could here. “Its not what you ride that matters, it’s that you ride that matters.” I would like to believe that most riders would agree with that philosophy. It’s the journey that matters, not what you show up on.

Info: This was my first taste of the legendary Virago line. I loved this bike. The only setback was the infamous starter problem. The photo pictured is borrowed. My bike was much cleaner and better looking by far! It had factory pasenger backrest and luggage rack, a windshield and much nicer seat!!! It will take many nights of searching, but I will find a photo of my Virago. Now for some Virago h
