My father purchased the origins of this bike in the early 1980's when I'd be 12 or 13 years old. It was kitted out in touring trim, but the heart of it was a Triumph 6T Thunderbird pre-unit engine in a 1962 slimline featherbed frame. We pulled it apart and re-built it in 1993 / 1994 with the regular Triton racer type look.

All Tim Aysan wanted was a logistically smooth method of lining up ride days with his core group of Toronto-based friends. He thought starting a forum-based website would be the best way to do it and he registered the domain name dotheton.com. Over a decade later, Aysan has more than 40,000 (registered) friends, 100,000 unique monthly visitors and 800,000 posts of content.

You wouldn’t know it by looking at it but this 1982 Yamaha XV750 Virago Street Tracker built by 24-year-old Nick Conway has 260,000 miles on it. Or 26,000, he’s not really sure. When he rescued it from a shop in suburban Cleveland, OH, the odometer read 26K but the title said 260,000. Maybe the person writing out the title got a little happy with the zeroes but, either way, the $400 Craigslist special definitely looked like it had a quarter of a million miles of experience on it.

Ten years ago, Mark Dempsey bought his first motorcycle right off the showroom floor, a 2006 Suzuki GSXR-600, a 407-lb. 100 horsepower rocket of a two-wheeler. He had never ridden a motorcycle before. This story doesn’t end well (he lived, but stick with us here).
