what is it about the 89 Venture Royale that it stands out?

My number one bike is the 89 Venture Royale and then the 85 Vmax followed by either Gl1500 Goldwings. Though the 93 is being heavier modified right now in the project room. It's a tribute bike, has a touchscreen radio I just put in two days ago. These are what I own right now, only bike I let go was a Kawasaki KZ1000.

After thraping a Honda C50 to death all winter, come the end of March, when I got my Z1000ST back out, I felt like I was sitting on a missile.. First ride was probably the best ride ever

i do a lot of scooter upgrades from 50cc to 66-80cc and and only rode test them for other issues. it still tickles me whenever i say"come on ,come on lets' get moving here". the stop sign at the end of the block comes up quicker on the gw.

I've had a few. Just can't remember all the years & models.
I'll give it a try though:
1972 Yamaha 125MX
73 Yamaha 250MX
72 Honda 450CB. Not sure if I have right model & year.
79 Yamaha 750 Midnight Special
90 Honda 750. Not a crotch rocket, but looked that way.
97 Honda 1100 Shadow Spirit. One of my favorites
99 Valkyrie Tourer. Burgundy & Cream. Real Stump Puller
96 Goldwing GL1500SE & Champion Colorado cargo trailer
2002 GL 1800. Illusion Blue. Painted trailer to match. Totaled it coming
out of Royston, Ga.
04 GL 1800 Titanium
2000 Valkyrie Interstate trike. Motor trike kit
96 GL 1500 Goldwing/DFT trike
2000 GL 1500 Goldwing/CSC trike
2005 GL 1800 Goldwing/Roadsmith trike
2004 GL 1800 Goldwing/Roadsmith trike
1998 GL 1500 Goldwing/CSC trike

Champion Colorado trailer
Dart cargo trailer
3 Bunkhouse camper trailers
1 Aspen Classic camper
2 Kwik Kamp campers

Currently looking at & will probably buy a 2007 Colorado trailer & another
Kwik Kamp camper. Don't know year model.
I over the years have pissed away a lot of money on motorcycles & trailers.
Money well spent.
Getting the KK so I can make an Alaska run with some others from this board. Keeping my fingers crossed I can get in good enough shape to go.

I currently own a 1990 Goldwing 1500SE, 1984 Honda VT700 Shadow, 1984 Honda VF100S (V65 Sabre) with full Honda Sportline fairing, 1975 Honda CB400F (I am 2nd and 5th owner of this one), 1975 Honda CT 90 (Trail 90). And a Honda 50 (for teaching the grandkids how to ride).

In the past, I have owned:
Kawasaki 500 (2 stroke triple)
Suzuki DR250 (trail rode to top of Pikes Peak OFF the road)
Yamaha 500 (2 cylinder 4 stroke street bike)
Honda CB550 (while living in Germany)
1979 Honda 750F
1982 Honda VF750S
2005(?) Yamaha/V-Star 1100
1985 Honda VF1100C (V65 Magna)
2003 Honda 250 enduro
1990(?) Honda VT500
1980(?) Yamaha 250 enduro

That is all I can specifically remember being "titled" to me, however, alot of bikes were "traded" in my first 30 years of riding for extended "test " periods before being re-traded (but never licensed to me). And I am not counting ATVs in case my wife ever reads this post.

500 bikes? That's just crazy. Is he opening a museum? I would pay to see that.
I only have twenty five ish machines. It's just impossible to keep them all in great running condition even after they have all been rebuilt...batteries die, rubber parts dry out, oil still needs changing and the gas , well that's the worst part, it doesn't stay balanced like it used to. Holy cow , any longer than 3 months in the tank , it and everything it touches is trashed. I 've spent so much time rebuilding carbs one year, that now I keep all but 5 dry ( crankcase still has oil in it). I kick them over every chance I get just so the don't get seized up. It's exhausting just doing that. I can't even start about the wax and polishing.
I hope the guy with 500 bikes has lots of friends that don't mind helping out. That size collection is one serious amount of work to maintain, and may qualify as at least a full time position . If he can manage it, more power to him. I couldn't do it.

Yeah. We haven't been able to get non ethanol fuel around here until recently....tried the red with it , no luck. Then tried the green , didn't do much better. Now hightest non-ethanol has become available , I mixed in the red with it this time and am hoping for a better results come spring.
