Member Info: I have been riding motorcycles and ATV''s for almost 30 years now and I hope to riding them for another 30 years. I love street bikes, especially sport bikes, but it has gotten too dangerous to ride in the roadways anymore. Because of this I''m currently doing my riding off-road on an ATV. I''m sure one day I''ll buy another street bike, but for now I''m sticking to the trails!

Sold: Aug 2011
Info: This is my brand new 2008 Suzuki DRZ 400S which I purchased on 4/16/08 from Mt Holly Suzuki located on US Route 206 in Vincentown, NJ. If your looking for one of these bikes let me save you some time and money. My friend Scott and I did weeks of research and dealer-hopping making sure we got the best deal. Well, we found it at Mt Holly Suzuki! There is no sense shopping elsewhere. Especially

2003 Kawasaki ZX-6R

Purchased: Apr 2003
Sold: Aug 2006
Info: This was a sweet-ass bike. I actually loved it a bit too much. During the winter months, I actually kept it inside my living room on dual bike stands! I hated to sell it, but there are just too many motorcycle accidents and I didn''t want to end up a statistic. It''s not us riders, it''s those dumb ass drivers that don''t know how to friggen drive!
2003 Suzuki LTZ 400

Purchased: Mar 2003
Sold: Aug 2004
Info: This was a really nice quad. It didn''t have the power and tourque that my currently Yamaha 660 Raptor, but it did the trick. I only sold it to buy my 2003 Ninja ZX-6RR, which I sold in June of 2006......
1998 Yamaha Blaster

Purchased: Jul 2004
Sold: Jul 2006
Info: I bought this little beast for $1,000.00 and drove the balls off of it for two years. I NEVER had any problems with it until my "Super-Mechanic" friend wanted to hop-up the engine a bit. Well, I let him and about a hour later this little Blaster blasted for the last time and blew the frig up! It sat for a while until I sold it (in pieces) to my buddy for $500.00.....
2002 Honda XR 250

Purchased: Feb 2002
Sold: Aug 2002
Info: This was a decent trail bike. These XR''s were a bitch to kick-start. I wasn''t impressed with the power of this bike and since all of my friends were driving ATV''s I sold it to buy a Suzuki Z400.
1986 Moto Morini Sebring

Purchased: Mar 1986
Sold: Jun 1990
Info: This is a 1986 Motomarina "Sebring" moped. This European company is now called Moto Morini. Back in 1986 this little baby was ahead of it''s time. For a moped it looked a lot like a real street motorcycle. I rode the balls off of this thing and it never let me down...... You got to love the good old times.....
1983 Honda C 70

Purchased: Jul 1987
Sold: Jun 1989
Info: This wasn''t the coolest looking thing, but it hauled ass. These had 70cc engines with three gears (automatic clutch). I believe I paid around $400.00 for it with only 300 miles on it and owned it for a couple of years. Because it was 70cc and didn''t have pedals like a moped, it was classified as a motorcycle. I wan''t old enough back then for a license, so I really didn''t ride it much. (Just w
1985 Honda ATC 200

Purchased: May 1988
Sold: Nov 1990
Info: My first and only ATC (trike) I ever owned. This was a great back for the era. When I bought it, it was in beautiful condition. I think I pad around $450.00 for it. I rode it until the swing-arm bearing needed to be replaced. Back then, I didn''t have the time and/or money to have it fixed so I sold it to a friend of my for $250.00. He knew about the bearings and still decided to try and driv
1990 Kawasaki KDX 200

Purchased: May 1994
Sold: May 1997
Info: I purchased this cycle in 1994 when it was only four years old and only paid $1,350 for it. It canw with all the extras and upgrades as shown in the pictures. I never put a penny into this bike! I rode this cycle hundreds of times in the three years that I owned it and never had a problem with it! That''s pretty damn good considering this is a two-stroke. In 1997 I sold the bike in great all a
1994 Suzuki GS 500

Photos: 3
Purchased: Apr 1996
Sold: Jul 1999
Info: These Suzuki GS500E''s are great starter bikes. Back in the mid 90''s, this was a super bike to start out with. Even though I was an avid rider of motorcycles, I wanted to start off slow. I didn''t go wrong here. I bought this bike from a Honda dealership when it was two years old. It only had 2,200 miles on it and I paid $2300 for it. It even came with an aftermarket Yoshimura exhaust system!
1981 Honda XR 200

Purchased: Jul 1985
Sold: Nov 1987
Info: This was my first ever dirt bike. I was only thirteen years old when my father bought it for me. For a skinny little guy like I was, this was a lot of bike for me as a beginner. I can recall popping the clutch a few time causing the bike as well as myself to flip back. Yeah, it was scary, but it didn''t stop me. I am now almost forty years old and this is the bike that started my passion for m
1986 Honda Spree

Purchased: Aug 1986
Sold: Oct 1989
Info: Back in the day (late 80''s) this thing was a little beast. Well, I was only fifteen then, so to me it was a beast. LOL! I bought this from a kid with only 200 miles on it for only $150.00! The only reason he sold it was it was given to him by a relative and he couldn''t get it to start. I bought it thinking I could find someone to fix it.... Funny thing is, that when I brought it home that da

Purchased: Aug 2013
Sold: Sep 2013
Info: Bought this amazing ATV on 8/25/2013 and sold it 8 days later on 9/2/2013. When I made the purchase I was under the impression that I could store it at my Fathers house, but after finding out that he didn''t have the room, I had no choice, but to sell it. I got a great deal on the bike and sold it for exactly what I paid for it! This KFX450R was worth much more than I sold it for, but I had no s

Purchased: Apr 2014
Sold: Sep 2014
Info: I bought this off a guy who really hooked this beast up. He didn''t even ride it after installing everything on the ATV. He easily has over $3,000 worth of extras. Here is the list of all the BRAND NEW add-ons/upgrades: 2009 OEM Honda plastics (zero rides), New OEM Honda foot guards, New OEM Honda shocks (all four replaced), Pro Taper fat bars, Trail Tech bar clamp and riser, Pro Taper grips, Powe
