Cant believe there isnt one. Certainly plenty of red blooded males here to give this a go, so how about it?

Try to keep chat to a minimum.

Please do NOT make this a domestic vs import battle unless the battle is done with pictures.

Now, lets see some chrome! :bounce:

Here is mine. It is an old Suzuki 1500. When I bought it I wanted a bike to just cruise around town with it. The more I rode it the more I began riding long distances. So I searched Ebay and bought a used fairing, hardbags and a tourpack to make the long trips more comfortable. I then painted it all up and here it is. The red is kandy apple red with a tone of large metal flake but it does not show up in this photo. The photo is me on the Dragon.

Ive stopped riding these days. I managed to ride from 5yo to 26yo without breaking a bone lol. Then I had a fall I semi passed out from fatigue as I had just left my labouring job at 40 km/h and managed to break my left clavical in 5 places and my right acetabulum (hip socket) in 30+ places, the surgeons wanted to amputate my leg, but I refused despite them insisting I would never walk again, spent 4 months on my back and another 8 learning to walk again! I bought another bike and 4 hrs later I was in hospital, I was riding on the highway when a truck lost a timber block which lodged in my front wheel. This resulted in a broken ankle. Rode for another 2 years, but the old hip decided it and the sports bike riding position didn't want to play together anymore :(. Sold the bike to a mate, Repainted it in HOK candy's and White flake, its now running 9.01 passes. Ironically I never fell off playing silly buggers, Just when I was riding, and abiding all rode rules, stay safe people! Heres a few pics of the bikes and me playing silly buggers LOL

Its all pretty rough.. Gonna be a big project - but still hoping I can have one of them going and looking half way decent by summer.


Last year I had a CM400 Hondamatic:
http://i403.photobucket.com/albums/pp116/carbd86stang/DSCF1955.jpg

Paid $200 for it and a parts bike. Sold the parts bike for $200, put a few hundred into the bike, rode it for a couple thousand miles, then resold for $1000 in the fall.

Here are 3 of the ones I have right now. I don't have any pics of my other drag bike. It is just a KZ900 style bodied drag bike. The red drag bike is also KZ900 motor. The Goldwing is a '76 that is a mild cudtom/redtore. The XS650 is one I just got. In good shape. I am in the middle of redoing the fugly king/queen seat to more of a stock looking piece. It will be sold when finished.

I really like the XS650's (like Goldwing's and KZ's as well, hell, I like almost all bikes), I had a really nice one that I bought with very few miles on it (worked at a dealer and the guys parents made him return it). Was the only vehicle I had for 6 months, put a ton of trouble free miles on it. There's a whole website about them with some really cool modified ones, link (http://www.650motorcycles.com/).

The demise of my XS650:

Lent it to a "friend" for a "job interview", lost my prescription eye glasses on the highway rushing into to work because he was late getting to my house (I rode him to my job he was then going to go to the "interview").

He's supposed to be at my job when I get off, not there, no call, I finally get a hold of him and he tells me he dropped it against his stairs and dented the tank. He showed up at my work and had his father follow him (he knew what I'd do if his father wasn't there.

The tank was destroyed and there was other damage, I go to drive it home and the head light pops out (the bike was like new beforehand). Found out a few days later he lied about the job interview, was out cruising around and let someone ride it that dumped it, he never paid for the damage, if I saw him tomorrow I'd punch him in the face.

I like it ! I think all motorcycles are great..but I really like the simplicity of the bobbers. Here's my first build. I learned a lot and have a lot of ideas to make the next one better. Don't flame me for the color. I always wanted a red hot rod and everybody else seemed to be doing black. ( I really like the black, though. I think the early Russ Mitchell bikes were great) also a pic of my last dirt bike, and my second bike, a Honda 305 scrambler that I got when I was 14. Mail ordered the pipes from JC Whitney catalogue !

Adam what year is the KX. My son had a 99 that was one of the best bikes we ever had. Something about the handling made you feel like you could do anything. When I bought my last bike (06 RM) I chose it because it had basically the same frame.

Cool Sportster, reminds me of the customs from when I was a kid. That's what I'd like (pan head), I prefer the fat tire bikes. Good story, a pile of us went up to Milwaukee for one of the HD anniversaries (forget which one , they seem to have one every year), anyhow several of the guys had the skinny front tire/chopper style bikes (big turning radius) and me and another guy with fat tire bikes (small turning radius) were up front and we kept intentionally doing U-turns on narrow streets, it was hilarious, they finally caught on.

Sadly, my bikes have been neglected these last three years (Don't ask, but I was out of the country for a year of that time). I will have them going for this summer though. :rocker:

They are both Yamaha XS Specials, one a 750 (1979) and the other an 850 (1980). Here are pictures, the black 750 back in 2003 and the 850 as it looked at the dealer where my cousin bought it...

It was a 99. Got it cheap on Craigslist because the clutch wouldn't disengage. Took it home, filed the notches out of the basket/hub and had a blast with that thing. You are right, handling made you feel like a hero, especially next to the KDX.

I love my current YZ250, but I keep thinking about the 125's I've had in the past and long for the tiny, flickable package.

Sweeeeeeeeeeet. Not as easy to find old pan heads anymore, I know someone reproduces the motor but I'd like to get a real one and especially not those pan head rocker cover people put on the EVO's. Eventually I'll run across one.

In high school I worked at a motorcycle shop & the boss was into non-American race bikes. I've done track time on a RZ500 & my favorite was his TZR250. He had some Hondas & IIRC 1 was a NSR but I don't recall the size, a RG500, several of the Kawasaki H2/H3, I a Suzuki Water Buffalo (that was a weird bike). The boss was cool, any of his street bikes were ours to ride any time we wanted. He had a Suzuki GS1100E with a MTC big bore kit that I wish I would have bought from him at the time. I wish I had the pocketbook to afford some of those bikes.

My cafe style streetable drag bike. 750 Honda punched to 1,000 cc. Traded it 2 years ago. It was a hoss during it's heyday, but technology caught up to it.

In high school I worked at a motorcycle shop & the boss was into non-American race bikes. I've done track time on a RZ500 & my favorite was his TZR250. He had some Hondas & IIRC 1 was a NSR but I don't recall the size, a RG500, several of the Kawasaki H2/H3, I a Suzuki Water Buffalo (that was a weird bike). The boss was cool, any of his street bikes were ours to ride any time we wanted. He had a Suzuki GS1100E with a MTC big bore kit that I wish I would have bought from him at the time. I wish I had the pocketbook to afford some of those bikes.

I worked at a motorcycle shop when I was in high school as well and the boss there was a collector as well (different boss than the one with the Honda NS). This guy had a wild collection, I think he had a Water Buffalo (Water cooled two stroke?), a Suzuki 2 stroke with "scoops" on the head, a brand new never ridden Honda Dream Machine, several small cc 2 stroke race bikes and the most unique one was a Suzuki RE-5 rotary engine bike.

I've had a few of the Kawasaki 2 stroke street bikes a 350, 500 and the 750 triple and the Yamaha RZ350 and RZ500.

Who the hell wouldn't like a pan head? Nice bike. Original pan (or new aftermarket)? Being a '57 I'm guessing original. Is the motor hopped up, couple of guys out here have some really fast pans, even a really fast knuckle. After market frame (no shocks)?

Motor and trans are all original HD. All the engine parts are correct 57 FLH (excepting the cam cover and carb) including matching case numbers. Stock bore and stroke only mods are and S&S E (modified for the stock air cleaner cover) enclosed belt drive and a scorpion clutch. It even has the original star hubs and mechanical brakes. Frame is an early 70s Paucho. Been together three years and is my everyday (when I can) ride. I didn't want the motor stroked, or even cammed because I've already been through all that..........


http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g183/Igosplut/mybk1.jpg

Had this twenty five years and counting.....

This is an old picture, but it looks somewhat the same with different coils. 78 Shovel stroked to 93, 4 3/4 wheels, 10-3/4 compression (with a kick only) Extrude honed billit machined dual plug heads, A S&S B with five fuel circuits, Power Arc dual plug/dual coil 120K single fire/multi spark ignition, the list goes on. Spent six years perfecting the tune/running of the engine to the point where three gears of rubber are easy, and without a holeshot it will still pull the front wheel in third gear tapping the rev limiter at 7200. Broken a truckload of parts, O ring chains and sprockets lasted a year 1/2 (spit the rollers right off) and went through many 4 speeds (broke the stock case in half) till I went with a 5 speed (then I didn't have to let off to shift). Last major thing that broke was the frame. Been through more parts than I care to remember, and have a shelve full of the unusual broken stuff. Age/work/time has slowed all that down, it's still registered year round but I only ride it a few times in the summer since the pan four years ago....

What a great mix of bikes owned by people here! :beer:

75 posts in and no brand bashing at all good job guys! :beer:

Here is my bikes:

09 Electra Glide Classic: anti-lock brakes, cruise control, luggage rack, rear speakers.

93 Kawasaki KX250: tore down to frame have all new plastic, graphics, sprockets, bars, piston etc. will be done in probably less than 1 month

80's era Kawasaki Ninja 900 powered roadrace sidecar: This bike was my dads roadracer and now pops is gone I plan on making it a street legal conversation piece, hopefully done within the year. When finished it will be completely covered with a fairing.

97 Wide Glide: Purchased for a steal without looking it over good. Big mistake by me, slight primary leak was due to a hack mechanic before me oversizing a hole in the case. I ended up getting a remanufactured motor from Harley, had to reweld and remachine trans mount holes as well as rebuilt the trans. bought new inner primary off e-bay. Powdercoated frame, painted tins H-D black pearl metalic, 09 screaming eagle exaust, new H-D controls and mirrors, new seat, shocks, and late model turn signals almost everything else new. Traded for new E-Glide.

that 71 Bonnie was my first new bike. I blew out the 5speed in 500 miles
I sold it for a Z1 and almost got killed on it- it did not turn well.
5 years later I bought a 71 again, and that took me to many many Brit bikes and a few HDs. including an XR750 racer I put on the street.
That 71 brings it all back. I have rebuilt 10 Triumphs so if you need help drop me a line

Well thank you - I have to agree that if you appreciate the hard bits and the heritage the Honda is indeed better looking. It just requires some background to really understand it.

It is a homologation special Honda built from 87-91 and only sold in the US in 1990. V4 750 with titanium rods, single sided swingarm and a lot of features that were new in its day - liquid cooled oil coller, etc. 20 years old this year.

Some nice bikes up there.... lots that I've owned (CB1100F, VF500f, Bandit 400, etc...) and only One that I'd love to own right now, today... that RC30. :D

I'm in the midst of refreshing my stable, but these are what I have currently:

The "freebie"... I've never ridden off-road before, so I thought a free bike (well, I have $80 into it for some vinyl and a new rear tire) would be a good place to start.
http://gallery.darladog.com/d/9007-2/IMG_1769.JPG

This is my wifes 2nd EX250.... the older generation is a MUCH better bike. She's struggled with riding though, so this is up for sale. It's *MY* go-to bike though, Much better to ride than the next bike down...
http://gallery.darladog.com/d/6587-2/11108+008.jpg

2004 YZF600r. The only good thing I can say about this bike is that it has good ergos for someone who's 6'4". Nothing Wrong with it, it's just a terribly soulless and boring bike to ride:

Interesting - I've never heard that before. I saw a new one at a track day a couple of years ago and it looked pretty trick. What's wrong with the newer ones?

The engine has been.... lol, "de-tuned" for better mid-range. The ergos are worse and a LOT was compromised for appearance in the way the bike is assembled. Kawasaki basically made the bike Look like what most people seem to want (I think it looks like azz personally), but destroyed a Lot of things that made it SUCH a great cheap bike.

Now, I'm an extremist function before form kinda guy, so take this with a grain of salt. But the older generations just 'work' better for a larger number of riders. Wanna race it, no problem, just put on sticky tires, upgrade the suspension and go. Want tour with it, great, put on hard luggage, a taller windscreen and some LD friendly tires and go (and go, and go... there's been an EX250 in each of the last 3 Iron Butt rallies... you know, 11,000 miles in 11 days). Want a 20dirt/80street bike... well, there's tires for that too... go naked? The bike lends itself very nicely to that. It fit riders from 5' to 6'8" comfortably and with no fuss.

The new bike 'fits' taller, part of the reason my 5'4" wife doesn't like it. But the knee indention on the tank put the knees at the widest point for my 34" inseam (not exactly comfortable), so the 'fits a wire range of sizes' thing is gone. It is now 100% focused on sport riding... no hard luggage (or even Soft luggage) fits on it very well, tire choices are slightly limited with rim changes, it looks hideous naked and is far less friendly to longer rides. I rode the '08 400 miles home the day we bought it, and that was miserable.... where-as I'd done several 600~800 mile days on the older model (in stock form) without issue.

All of those complaints, and I'll still be a Little sad when it goes. But that's okay, because I'll probably buy one of the older gen bikes again.

Same here, I changed the oil on my two fitty and was riding yesterday and today. Going to do the big bike this weekend. Watch out for the idiots in the cars that have forgotten about motorcycle riders over the winter.

Besides idiots in general, you have to watch all the loose gravel and sand from the snow maintenance all winter! my area needs some good rain to wash it all off the road. this way i can really enjoy the bike season :bounce:

Watch out for the idiots in the cars that have forgotten about motorcycle riders over the winter.

One of the idiots to watch for is holding on to the handlebars. :beer: If you are one of our northern riders keep in mind that your skills are rusty after not riding for months. Take it easy when bringing the bikes out and get some good practice in before you need it. :thumbup:

I'm thinking about getting an older Triumph to make a bobber out of...

As an alternate to that look for a Yamaha XS650. A couple have been posted so far. They look very very similar to a Triumph Bonneville [actually called poor man's Bonneville] and sound nice too all while costing quite a bit less. They also tend to be quite a bit more reliable and have some nice features Triumph didnt add until their last few years [electric start, front/rear disc brakes for example]. In my area messed up Triumphs sell for more than running condition 650s in nice shape, especially the pre-oil in frame model triumphs. Plus they have tons and tons of after market support.

Mostly i just think its a waste to chop a triumph ;). Course if you found one already hard tailed...

I bought the bike 3 years ago for $500. Rebuilt the forks, bent them, rebuilt them again, and have been riding it ever since. Bought it with 4100 miles on it. It now has 9400 on it.

Here is my first bike, I picked up about 15 years ago and rode for about 4 years. It's a 1982 Yamaha Maxim 400. Got it from my father with only 1,000 miles on the clock. All lights, tires and everything were all original. Obviously had to change stuff and tune it up a bit.
http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b204/TAGuy/Other%20Rides/BIKE2.jpg

Then I rode a '97 Ducati Monster 750 for a season. Dual titanium race pipes, jetted, 900 windscreen. Fun bike to ride around town expect that the clutches on Ducati's suck at traffic lights and on the highway the 5 speed made the VTwin motor rev high.
http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b204/TAGuy/Other%20Rides/JDUCATI07.jpg

My first new motorcycle was my '02 YZF600R. And sorry BrianM, I disagree with you. The 600R might not be the fastest bike but it did a lot of stuff very well. I've had many rider surprised on how well I rode the heavier 600 sportbike compaired to their newer supersports. The 600R had a better mid range power than the R6s of it's era and more comfy. And even with the larger 180 rear tire I was still able to drag the rearsets with ease. Been thinking of picking a nice one up for my wife, I kick myself for selling mine.
http://www.clubecm.com/yzf031.jpg

Here is my current bike my '05 R1 I picked up new. I love this bike, the looks, the power, how it handles. After riding a new R6, I have actually thought about trading it for one. The new R6s are just one razor sharp handling machine, I just hate having to rev to 10,000rpms to get it moving. That and easier to ride two up with a liter bike.

Well thank you - I have to agree that if you appreciate the hard bits and the heritage the Honda is indeed better looking. It just requires some background to really understand it.

It is a homologation special Honda built from 87-91 and only sold in the US in 1990. V4 750 with titanium rods, single sided swingarm and a lot of features that were new in its day - liquid cooled oil coller, etc. 20 years old this year.

tez,

I don't know if you seen it but a dealer in Stockholm had an RC30 and a NR750 that they finally got around to uncrating. :bowdown:

It reminds me of almost buying a 85 VF1000R (best looking Japanese bike ever) that was crate new in 93 for $5k. I still kick myself for passing that up.

That's pretty cool. As trick as the RC30 was in its day, at the time dealers could not sell the US models - 15K was huge money in 1990. There were unsold ones all over the country that I assume eventually got purchased. There are a few with under 10 miles, I'll bet. (Mine has 45K miles) .

He was scraping at the very least. I lifted a peg on the 400 in a tight right-hander, once. I just about needed a new pair of shorts. Maybe with better tires it wouldn've have been so bad, but she was pushing hard to the outside already... and when the peg lifted I thought I was done for. But, it held together and pulled out.

The keys to turning like that are look where you want to go, (snap your head around) keep the clutch in the friction zone so the bike is under power, and settle the bike down with the rear brake. One good afternoon of practice in a parking lot and you'll be doing it too. :thumbup: :beer:

Adventure Rider is a great forum. I joined one of my best friends on a ride a little over a year ago. RMac is a highly successful photo journalist, widely published, and his thread is filled with spectacular photography.

His ride was a memorial ride following the death of his Mom, carrying her ashes from Oregon to her childhood home in Ohio to a memorial service in Arkansas and back to Portland.

I joined him in New Mexico along his trail toward home. It's quite a story if you would be interested and have time to follow.

This is my 1958 Triton. It is a Norton frame with a Triumph motor. I consider it the granddaddy of all the modern bikes you see today- the fame was remarkable for the most part still used today
The motors were taken from the frame for 500cc Formula racing leaving the frames in need of power
So someone put a Triumph motor in and off it went.
They are now called cafe racers but it was a poor mans race bike
This bike has a brother in the Barber Museum in Alabama- the photo you are seeing is from my pal Lindsay Brooks book on Triumphs in the US.
We took this photo outside of Detroit at a retro diner on a cold cold Oct night I love this bike and the genre of cafe bikes in general

i am curious what is your average MPG??

My 2003 harley Road King Classic with mild build like cams, exhaust, intake, and PCIII are made good run but not in lean mixture because it will ruin the nice exhaust pipe from nice chrome to be gold color..

my harley do give me a average MPG as 40 miles per gallon... if i do a lot of city then my mile per gallon are bad... that why i just keep riding on highway as much i can go...

I always wanted to take it to the track, and finally did two years ago. None of the young guys knew what it was - to them it was just some old geezer bike.

I was waiting to enter the track for the first session about ten bikes back and one of the instructors looked at me and then walked straight towards me. I thought uh-oh, I'm in trouble. He came up and said "you have the coolest bike here".

It sure was fun, though.

First thing I would do (if you don't mind my saying so :bounce:) is flush the brake system. There's a lot of valves in the Linked Braking System and they don't like moisture -- and they aren't getting any younger. PM me if you want the procedure, I can scan a page out of the service manual if you'd like.

I was a DM for Yamaha in the 80s and remember when this bike came out. The engine is rock solid. I ended up with an 89 Transalp with the same V-Twin powerhouse.

Nice shot of the Beemer and Tetons too.

We had one - a good bike but underpowered. Honda spent too much on the single sided swingarm and neglected the suspension. All in all, though a great bike for its price. A friend who owned a Honda franchise said everyone wanted one the minute Honda quit making them.

Part of the problem with Hawks is that, at the time, you could buy a CBR600 -- twice the HP -- for a few hundred dollars more.

I don't think that 1st-gen SVs command the same, "Wow I used to have one of those!" reactions from folks that the Hawks do. :bounce:

Yes, I've seen it before. Personally I think it's friggen' NUTS to ride that fast on a public road but it is an impressive video.

The Gold Wing is really a remarkable bike. The handling is incredible for such a big machine & it's without a doubt the best bike I've ever owned.

Free tech tip of the day: I have the solution if you have spongy brakes or have a tough time getting a good lever after bleeding. All you have to do is zip tie the brake lever so it has some pressure and leave it overnight. When you get to your bike in the morning and cut the zip tie off you will have a great feeling lever.

Another one here down the west coast WA, OR, CALI, cut across to Vegas over to Grand Canyon, Up to Bonneville and back home to WA. Plus tons of shorter trips.

Or use a vacuum bleeding system and be done with it.

What sounds easier to you?

Getting out your vacuum bleeder, getting out your air hose, turning the compressor on, removing the resivoir cap, connecting the vacuum, cracking the bleeder, making sure you keep fluid level up, shutting the bleeder, going to the other front disc, cracking the bleeder, keeping fluid up, shutting bleeder, filling fluid to full, reinstalling res cap, cleaning all tools of brake fluid, putting bleeder away after you empty it, putting compresser hose away.

or

Putting a zip tie around the lever and grip so there is pressure on the brakes, walking away, going to sleep, waking, cut zip tie.


I know which one is easier for me but then again I'm lazy, I'll bench bleed a master cylinder so I don't have to do it on the bike. Yes it is possible and easy to replace a master cylinder without bleeding, I do it all the time. I have a vacuum bleeder but why get it out when it's not needed?

So someone put a Triumph motor in and off it went.

This was my old bike which I sold to pay off some bills.
2003 883R that has built to over 1330cc when I was done with it. Buell top end that was bored, honed and blueprinted. Plus the entire Screaming Eagle catalog. Before I sold it we put it on the Dyno and it was putting down 92hp with 110 octane.
Never got to put the black wheels on it or finish replacing all the chrome but it was a very fun bike.

I,m not sure if I bought this to ride or to have something to look at when I'm out there drinking beer.

Don't get to post much since I live in an apartment and no longer have a garage or shop and most of my tools are stored in my enclosed trailer at a friends house and he lets me keep my current scooter in his shop. Some day I hope to move and get a shop back and give my stuff a real home. 85 softail (last of chain drive, kick start, 4-speeds and second year for the evo engine, maybe not as nice as some, but it is paid for and all mine.)

Wanted something old school and non-blingy.

88 Heritage with a big bore kit. Love this bike, good sound without being obnoxious, good power for me, and a good ride, an it just looks clean and sexy to me.

I remember growing up on Oahu everyone had a 2 stroke scooter, no helmets nothing. You weren't anyone without a scooter.

yup the scooter scene is pretty big on maui and even bigger on oahu. Guys riding with no helmets are just asking for it. what part of oahu did you grow up on ?

I lived across the street from Schofield barracks but I wasn't a military kid or anything. Kinda funny only haole there that wasn't. My aunt lived there her whole life and married a local so I used to hang out in Waipahu a lot too.
Played a ton of street hoops there and don't know how I never got beat to death by some locals. It's a rough neighborhood.

I have had a bunch of crotch rockets over the years, here a couple years back I had this one, kawi 600R ninja.

http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii117/matcoeb/bikesideex2.jpg

Then I sold that and got this one, 2002 suzi TL1000R

http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii117/matcoeb/zukside.jpg

But that one led me to end up here, on the stretcher.

So now that I had over half a mill in metal in my back and cant bend over the tank anymore.....I have this one. 1997 dyna super glide.

I have a lot of projects that have been frozen. CB750 cafe, CB900F, and a 75 CB750 restore. In my dream world, I'll be back to them this winter, but then again, I said that 2 years ago lol.
