Re: Bikers on Board ?

FINALLY a thread I can contribute to... It's tough being a dirt stomper lurking in these parts...

Hoppy, I covet your ride through Italy. Hopefully someday you'll go visit the Guzzi plant on Lake Como.

I currently have two liter bikes. A 99 R1100S I "rode down to the crossroads" among many other places..



And a Buell XB (which has harassed MANY a Ducati in my beloved hills)



Here is my landlocked playground:



I've also been known to haunt tracks and take pictures:

Fer instance....

Geoff May Road Atlanta 08 riding for Jordan. (He's with EBR now)



Current defending US Superbike Champion Josh Hayes Road Atlanta 09.



VIR 07



Rebel Heart: That's a fine chunk O' ridin' in there. I wish lane splitting were legal in all 50. Here in Tennessee I'm just hoping they ban turn signals altogether as less than .05% of the population here seem to know what the "mystery stalk" on the left side of steering column is for!

Re: "Good" music. I don't know if it's good but it's mine and it's bike related:

If you're remotely a motorbike race geek, you should enjoy this:

SOUPKAST

But sadly..so far, this is as close as I can get to the Ocean!

Re: Bikers on Board ?

What's happening here?? This is starting to look like my ST-owners forum!

Yes, sailing and motorcycle riding (well I'll throw golf in there too) are some of my afflictions.

Two bikes actually:
-2008 Suzuki V-Strom 650 now sold
-2009 Honda ST1300

Safe Sailing & Riding my friends!

Re: Bikers on Board ?

There has always been a correlation between bikers and sailors. Independent spirit, self sufficiency, nomadic lifestyle, and the camaraderie between sailors is very close to the camaraderie between bikers.

I have a theory about rap, and that is every generation needs to listen to music that their parents can't stand, and today's parents grew up on Rock and Roll, so you have to go way out there to bother us.

Yours truly
owah! nice.. please let me know; when i come? I love very.. so cute...

I think one of the funniest bikes I helped put together was a 45 magnum. A 45 flathead bottom end , with an iron head sportster top end. I machined the cams and made the lifter blocks and lifters. We used two front heads and put dual carbs on it. Thing was wicked fast for a 60 inch motor. Definetly not one that blended in at the tavern.

Re: Bikers on Board ?

Yep, definitely a great little bar hopper. One of the local shops around here had a magnum trike. Used to win best trike every year at our bike show.
My 45 was the best dirt bike I ever owned.

Re: Bikers on Board ?

Started riding Speedway when I was 15 with an AJS 500 single,
Learnt to fall off before I could rise, Hahahaha

Ridden all types of bikes over the years.

!968 650 Bonnieville I bought brand new, and rode it for 17 years, Ending up fully chopped.

Did over a million miles on it, Magic machine,

The only Triumph that didnt leak oil, And it did have oil in it,

Got divorced, so the triumph went, Forced sale,

Then I bought my current bike for my 60th birthday for me,

I have done 60,000 Klms on it in four years,

Last year I didnt ride as I lost my licence for eight months, Accumulated points,
Then I rode it for one day and then left to pick up my Gemini in Fiji and was gone 3 months, bringing my boat home,

So a whole year of not riding,

2 year old bike with 354 klms on the clock, Demo, 2006 model. Bought it in 2008,

The Whispering Death,

Honda Super Blackbird, 1100XX, in the fastest Silver,

Heather rode a 2009 Hyosung 250 Aquila Cruiser, But sold it due to lower back pains,

So I have just bought a ZR7 750 Kwaka, Hopefully she can ride that, with out pain,

No I cant get my Bird on the Gem, But the kwaka might be the go,


Cheers,
Brian,
