Bikers on Board ?

Since we have a classic car thread, perhaps we should have a biker tread as well

These days I am bikeless and have been that way for 6 years, partly because I cannot legally ride in Sweden where I live, but I can ride anywhere else in the world

These are my last two rides...

I bought my Ducati ST2 new in Australia and within 6 months got a job in the UK. I decided wtf and shipped her over with me. In this touring guise I travelled all over Europe including a visit back to the factory in Bologna.



My last bike was another red Ducati, the Multistrada. I also took it back to the factory and had several trips through the Swiss Alps, biker heaven

Re: Bikers on board?

Never ridden a feet forward bike. I think it would feel so strange, then again after 6 years with out a bike any riding would feel strange

Re: Bikers on board?

People got mad at me for posting this video. It's sped up, splitting lanes in California is legal, and I've been riding accident free since I was 14 in several states. Raced BMX as a kid, then USCF road, then NORBA mountain. Started with a Honda Trail, moved up to a 250 Nighthawk, got stupid and bought a ZX-11, got unstupid and bought a 750 Nighthawk, and now am happy as a clam on my Honda 919.

My current ride is a 2006 Kawasaki Ninja 500. I ride every chance I get during the six-month season. About 24K on her now.

Re: Bikers on board?

Eric,

Why does it not surprise me that your into bikes? And for any that might get their nickers in a bunch, what you saw in his video is just how it is in SoCal. Not a fan of the sound track you used though, might just be that my first motorcycle was in 1967 and an "age thing". 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

Re: Bikers on board?

Wow, a bike thread sure took off! Maybe I need to start a hang gliding thread to see if it gets traction on the CF.

Personally, I like girls, so I would take it as a compliment.

Re: Bikers on board?

Good to see so many riders on here. Sad that you guys can't recognize great music though :-)
