Most rap is total crap, but honestly most rock on the radio is total crap as well. And beyond that it's totally a personal choice on what you want to listen to so I'm the last guy that's going to say what's good and what isn't.

Also a huge Springsteen fan, Pogues, Old 97's, Sublime, Beach Boys, Stevie Wonder; all kinds of stuff.

You should see my KLR650, I have '04 red plastics on that have seen on few years of sun, and is now pink.

Now just to figure out a way to put the bike on board, not just the biker.

Re: Bikers on board?

Since there is no road connecting Panama and Colombia you will find a steady stream of adventure bikers lashing their bikes to the decks of small sailboats to hitch a 100-mile offshore ride one way or the other. I've seen a 40 footer with two big bikes strapped on deck near the shrouds and another on the stern. I can't imagine the saltwater does them much good.

My Husband and I ride Triumphs. Mine is a 1600cc Thunderbird and my Husband's is a 2300cc Rocket III. We rode them from St Petersburg FL. To Seattle this past summer and had a blast. Now if only We could load them on our 42 footer!

Re: Bikers on Board ?

I ride a little

Riding the Coast Highway on Vimeo
The bike in the video, a 2000 Road King has 112,000 miles and is still going strong.
I have ridden coast to coast more than once, and everywhere on the west coast from Ensenada to Alaska.

Re: Bikers on Board ?

I've got a 1978 Suzuki GS850 shaft drive bike. I rebuilt the engine and carbs, and painted it a few years ago. Then I have a couple of Honda Trail bikes I have rebuilt as well. One a 1976 Trail 70, it was my first bike and still only has 1400 mi on it. The other a Trail 90 that is great for putting around town with. I've been thinking I might try and bring one of the Trails up on my island tour in northern Lake Michigan. I want to hit Beaver Island and Drumond among others on my way to the North Channel this summer. I'm just working out a way to use my long boom to lower the 160lbs bike into the dinghy!! haha

Ok, it's a rental (the bike, not the girl).

Re: Bikers on Board ?

In Germany I rode a Yamanha RD350 and BM's after that R27/3, R51/3, R69S, R75/5 .
Here in Australia Moto Guzzi Quota, 750 Super Tenere,TT600, KTM 950Adv and now a R100 and a F800GS plus a HS6 Rewaco Trike .
Got into sailing 2 years ago and have only done about 5000km on my F800GS....so much to do so little time :-)

Re: Bikers on Board ?

Back in '80 I had an XS 1100 Yamaha, and then in '82 I had a '76 Sporty, and a couple of Yamaha 250 enduros, but lately I have been spending all my time and money on boats and Alaska has a real short window of opportunity for riding. Maybe when I retire. I kind of fancy the Victory Kingpins, but I want to custom design the rims and paint job.

I coveted one of those .....but over here the first bike cc limit was 250cc and by the time I got to 17 only the 350LC (Elsie) was on sale (most of the earlier RD250's had been mangled )....and it was a couple of years until the replacement TZR250 / TDR250 hit the market (and by then I was onto litre bikes ). So I had to make do with a Honda MTX200 with only 26hp - but it was a 2 stroke .....the number of times I fell off that (racing with a mate with same model - mostly pub to pub ....all pre-breathalyser over here) it's a surprise I am still here .......

Indeed, if I had started with a TZR / TDR250 (50hp - 2 stroke, peaky as hell) I probably wouldn't be - those bikes were the reason the law was changed (to follow the UK) so that first bikes could only be 125cc and 12hp ....that and around half a dozen 17yo's were killed within a couple of years .....the irony is that because of that law change I was grandfathered into having a big bike (unlimited CC / HP) licence, even though I had failed that test previously - examiner said something about speeding and reckless driving .

Happy days - it was great fun being immortal .
