    I've had a Mazda 6 2006 and 2009 and Peuogot 306.
    The only worth uploading any pictures for is the Mazda 6 2006. I'll hopefully be back later to upload some pictures of it

    Here's my current and previous Hondas. VTX 1300 and Shadow ACE 750, which got me back in the wind.

    That was a nice a nice bike. Really nice color blue. I also thought that oldsmobile looked awesome. Especially the wheels it had, a really nice design.

    Thanks, I loved the color. We still miss that Oldsmobile.

    Not much as in "off road" per se, I have pics of the area I was in both for work and to our property in N. California last summer.

    If you don't mind my asking why did you get rid of the Blaster? Those things were loads of fun to ride and since they don't make that model anymore they are classic too.

    I know you can't ride them in some places because of the engine type but if you haul it out to the dunes there are still a lot in use today.

    A lot of the guys I rode with sold their dirt bikes and atv's. So we didn't ride anymore. I wasn't riding much on my own so I though of selling it. My brother is much younger and had friends that had atv's. So I decided to keep it since I didn't really need to money. He would take it out and enjoy it. When I decided to sell it was a year or more after he last rode it. So it was just sitting there. I rode it when a guy came to look at it. Right then I decided that I still wanted it, but when I looked at it and started adding up the cost of things I wanted to do with it I sold it right quick. LOL. I didn't want to spend over $1000 in upgrades when I wasn't using it much before that.

    I had fun with it but wanted a faster race quad or a 4X4 (Grizzly).

    Lol, true I guess. If it sits there it's eventually going to be getting a rebuild with performance parts and such and if you're like me the costs run up fast.

    I mean, what's the point in not going all out if you're going to rebuild something right?

    Still, those are classic ATVs since they don't make them anymore. I probably would have held onto it at least a little longer :)

    I sold it before my son was born so it has been over 8 years now. If I had it now I would have to take the kids for a spin every other night.

    I would like to get another quad but I would get something bigger.

    That R6 looks sweet. You can really tell by the photos you really took really good care of that bike. Sad sometimes we sell things and think that we won't miss them. I find that I get really attached to my cars I spend so much time in them that it's corny to say they become almost like a second home.

    Thanks. I still miss that bike. I use to ride it as much as possible. If the weather was bad, I would wash it down in my garage at the end of the night. It was my first motorcycle and I wanted to keep it forever. But things change. Money got tight later on and it would have been tough if I kept it. If I could have toughed it out for a while it would have been fine but I'm not sure if that would have worked. I plan on getting another motorcycle at some point but I will never forget my R6. That was one of my dream bikes and I was happy to be able to own it for as long as I did.

    My old rides are a 87 Honda, 99 honda, 2000 and 2005 Maxima, 2001 PT Crusier, and 2003 Envoy. I have own a lot of rides and they all were really good cars. The 87 Honda was my first car my parents bought me when I got my license. It was wreck on the driver door, but ran like new for $750. After they saw that I could drive with no accidents, they I got the 99 Honda. My dad is a long time mechanic and a car man who loves to buy and sell cars. So I had the benefit to switch cars with him when he bought a great car. That is how I ended up a with all these cars. Now I drive a 2003 Buick Rendezous which I switch my PT Cruiser for so he could sell it. I actually miss my 2005 Maxima and my 2003 Envoy. I like SUV's so I try to stick with that, just as long as its not a gas eater like most big SUV's.

    Nice bikes James. They look unique too. The Frontier, as we would say in Jamaica, 'it sell off', meaning that it has met or is beyond expectation.

    This is my favorite ride of yours. I was going to buy one in my younger years but I am glad that I didn't, or I probably wouldn't be typing this right now. Because I use to be hell on wheels and drive like a crazy person.
