    Motorcycle riders - let seem em!

    So guys, who rides? I can't wait for the snow to melt and the rain to wash off the salt so I can pull out the bike. I ride a 1987 Suzuki Intruder VS1400 - a shaft drive air-cooled Vtwin. Its not crotch rocket, but its a lot of fun to ride, and will still give most Harleys a run for their money. Here are a few pictures, and a video of my finishing off my whipped tire at the end of the season last year. Lets see what you guys got.

    Haha...I just bought one of these for my wife...




    ...15mph, 10 miles on a charge,

    ...after she gets used to it I'll convert it to brushless and lipo...*evil grin*


    Note: within 5 minutes of giving it to her she made me promise I don't speed-modify her new scooter like I speed-modify the RCs...haha

    .

    Edited for a reference.

    2002 Honda CBR954RR with lots of goodies on it. Sorry about it being winter. Over here, most of the time we get sunrises like this.

    That and the coldest that it's been over the winter was around 58*F

    This is my 2005 Harley Sportster. It has Vance & Hines pipes, Kuyiakin Hypercharger intake, platinum plugs, Screamin' Eagle carb, Saddlemen bags, 7ooo rpm ignition, and a slew of chrome accessories. Up next is flat drag handlebars and more chrome. It's not a powerhouse, but it is a blast to ride and it gets looks.

    That's how it goes.


    1974 Norton Commando 850 Interstate that I help my dad bolt together when I'm home. Last I heard, the isolastics were in place and it was on the ground sans bodywork and engine. I doubt I'll ever ride it.

    If I posted my road bike you guys would laugh...

    its an '04 Honda Rebel 250. I split it with my dad as my first road bike. Its a lot of fun to ride, but I got my license a week ago and am already itching for a bigger bike. We are talking about selling it for about $1700 (only 7K miles, new tires and chain, recent tune up...) and buying an older 550 or 650, like a Kawasaki KLZ or something.

    When I get a job, I am saving up and buying a Buell... I really like the looks of those bikes, and they are just SOOOOO cool.



    I do have some pics of my off-road bikes?

    Sorry if they are too big I'm having trouble getting them resized. I know how to do it but it's not saving them properly.

    Only question i have is how many miles per TANK, it looks like it wouldn't even hold half a gallon. Do the cops bother you on that thing. My parents would never let me get one of them but they let me get a bike because the bike is actually legal, those aren't.

    the tank is 1.5 litres so almost half a gallon, i get about 3-4 hours of riding per tank. I havnt been bothered by cops and i have had it for a couple years. I know they are illigal but after reading the laws an electric razor scooter is just as illigal on the road. they are not made in canada and not many are here so the law isnt really enforced.

    I didn't realize you were in Canada, down here the cops love to give people a hard time about it. A few friends have had them confiscated and had to walk home.

    If you do see cops coming you can just hop off and dissengage the wheel from the drive spindle and it turns into a kick scooter. As long as the motor is not powering it there is nothing they can do.

    WOOT. Just found out from my dad that as soon as I get my mirror replaced (shut my garage door on it... loooong story) I can put it up for sale. We are going to get an older bigger bike to replace it. I really like the old v45 Sabres from Honda... There is a nice one on Craigslist for $1800 right now... A little paint and love, and it would be really cool (v45s had a V-4 750cc motor...) For now, here are some pics of the non street legal bikes...


    1986 Honda CR 125


    2004 Cannondale E-440R


    1974 Kawasaki KX 125



    1978/79 Yamaha YZ100 (78 frame, 79 motor, we have 2 complete spares for it... the '79 motors run better so thats whats in it now.)


    1982 Yamaha YZ125

    There is also my new bike, an '03 KTM EXC 200, along with a 1969 Bultaco Pursang 250 out in the shed that I need some pics of...

    The Cannondale needs a front brake sensor (thing that turns on brake light), high/low beam switch, and street legal tires and we can get it plated.

    The YZ100 and CR125 both have cylinders out for porting by Eric Gorr. When they come back, both get a complete top end build. The 100 will be running VP 110, and the 125 will be running a mix of 93 octane and VP 110. Both are going to SCREAM.

    Here's my current motorcycle, 2006 Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom. This was taken last year on the Devil's Highway, RT 666.



    Previous motorcycle, 1993 GTS1000, one of around 400 imported into the United States. Never should have traded it. This was taken on US129, the Tail of the Dragon.

    That is some weird suspension in the front. It's kinda cool though.
