Just some no-name Chinese shocks from eBay. That bike is not about performance at all.

Yeah the GoPro flew off its sticky mount right after the last shot, and kept filming until the safety crew brought it back to me in the pits. It literally only had a small scuff on the case.

Damn i'd love to get on a track - but honestly need a different bike to do so. I'd cry if i dropped my buell. A generic Japanese bike otoh.. makes me want a 600 for track duty.

yup, the tiller is a twin. i little on the chunky side but it stands up real fast. i am going to do the 3/5th's throttle mod (reduces throttle twist required for WOT) this spring... i am 43. this bike is becoming too fast for me and i know it.. but i cant leave it alone. Thats why i have to sell it this spring. besides, i've got my eye on a gas powered miller welder. weld in the shop and weld on the road. RC51's are shaweet IMO... nice riding position, good pegs.. motor is not shabby either :-)

Yeah, the TL's are V-twins. Best sounding sport bikes IMO...not a fan of the whining rice exhaust.

Here's my 03 SV1000 I just sold. Scorpion bolt-ons made all the difference in the world with regards to sound.

Default First bike in 28 years...



My younger brother gave me his 916 for Xmas. He isn't sure what happened when he dumped it, but it needs a few things.

The nose fairing / windscreen are toast. Needs new mirrors, front blinkers, headlight bucket.

It has a couple of scratches on the side fairing and tail fairing that need fixing.

The good news: It was imported from Canada, and has 2,000 km. It's running a full fast by Ferracci exhaust and chip. New tires, chain and sprockets.

I'm excited to get back into riding, and to do it on a 916, which is such a beautiful machine is amazing.

I've got a bit of work to do. I'll post a shot when I get it back on the road.

Yea I was able to walk away with little damage. And I think my bike did more damage to her car than her car did to my bike. I even rode it a hundred miles back home.

My dad and I bought this a couple weeks ago for my little brother. He just turned 18, and Dad wanted to be able to ride with him for a few months before he went off to college. It's a '74 CB200, and it's brutally slow, but it runs great. After a little maintenance it will be a really fantastic little bike.

Had an EX500 my self but 640 bucks (6 months) insurance was too much for liability. Insurance guy straight up said it - 22 years old (at the time), male, on a crotch rocket... insurance is high yes.

So, I still haven't posted up any pics of my new '12 Tiger 800 XC but I have been bombing around on the dirt and gravel roads for a week and love it. I will get some pics up soon. I did get my first flat ever on a bike, though. Invested in some Motion Pro spoons and irons the other day and swapped that biotch myself. I had to drive it a couple hundred yards on the flat to get off the road to safe place, so that cost me a new tube. Picked up a spare front and rear tube as well. Now I can carry them and the spoons with me when I travel and never be stranded with a flat again.

My local Cyclegear used to carry these bitchin plastic tire spoons that were super easy to use. Much nicer than the consumer Motion Pro stuff. BTW, most people don't realize that Motion Pro has two versions of almost everything they sell. Their cheap stuff is useless, but their mechanic grade tools are fantastic.

Just sold my '97 F3 at the beginning of winter. That isn't mine but looked exactly like it, except mine had a Vance&Hines exhaust, instead of that black one. Can't find any pictures of mine for some reason.


Here's my '07 250 Sx-f. Trying to sell as well to pick up a dual sport. No recent picture's of it except riding pictures.

Traded in my '03 Monster 620 for an '06 Monster S2R1000. 70 ft-lbs on a 400 lb bike sure is fun, and the noise is glorious.
