Default Motorcycle Thread..

Just had a look round the forum and couldnt find a motorcycle thread, and i thought it would be good to have one.

Motorbikes are another passion of mine and ive been riding them since i was young much to my parents dismay.

I currently have 2 bikes a 2004 aprilia rsv and a 2006 KTM supermoto!

Good to see other Supermoto guys here. No pics on this computer but I have a DRZ 400SM with a few mods. Hopefully next year I will be able to swing adding either a Husky SM510 or on the way other end of the spectrum a Ducati Hypermotard.

They lost me with the 999 but redeemed themselves with the 10/1198 series.


Good to see other sumo riders as well.

I'm pretty much on motororcycles as I am with cigars. Ride/smoke what ya like. That being said, my Streetglide gets it's work done at the local Ducati dealership ($15) an hour cheaper.

As I look at those bikes, they are just butt ugly to me. The bikes look like the builder just hangs parts off any spare space there is to attach some thing. I know the engineering is good, but asthetically - they have a long ways to go IMO. YMMV though.

Wow, lots of fast bikes in this thread!

I have a really slow and expensive 2000 Fatboy with a lot of chrome and Stage 2 engine mods. The engine is punched out to a 95 incher.
It makes lots of noise, sets off car alarms in the neighborhood, sends small children running from the 2 into 1 Thunder Header exhaust, and can't corner worth a crap.

Overheats as it is air cooled and I live in Florida and you could get 2 GSX'ers for the price I paid for it USED.

My 5 year old daughter just now isn't scared of it as she is scarred for life from a burn off the muffler after I told her to stand back!!!

I wouldn't trade it for the world, although that cute girl above would make me think....
