Hello from the USA

the Duke 890 R is a mean machine... I'm about to buy one after thoroughly enjoying a 530 exc-r for years. I thought I would join in on the discussions since there is an 890 forum here

Thanks for having me

I had the 530 EXC-R registered for street use when I lived out west. Since I have moved back to PA I haven't used it onroad at all.

I have been riding street bikes since I was 16. My forte has always been vintage yamahas (I own a stock XS650) or cruisers (I have had a Yamaha XV1100 virago, Yamaha SR250 exciter, and a 1979 Harley ironhead).

More recently I have been finishing up a 50's Harley panhead chopper/bobber build (stock rigid wishbone frame, springer front end, invader rear wheel) and having sort of a biker motorcycle identity crisis.......?????
If I own a high performance sport bike am I still allowed to ride my chopper?:)
I had such a ripping time on my 530 on the street.... the Duke is almost no brainer for me.

Very nice collection! Yeah you can still ride choppers... just don't try to turn the 890 into one 😄 Glad that your search for 890 forum landed here.
