    okay... all the new models are out, so it's time for a thread.

    I'm going for my learners in a week,
    hitting a motorcycle show on the 25th to buy gloves and a helmet,
    doing a training weekend sometime in April....
    and dreaming about bikes all the time.

    (last night I was honestly was dreaming about ripping the bodywork off a GS500, I'm obsessed)



    so here's some fun new bikes....

    [​IMG]
    ^ the new YZF-R1 limited

    ^ BMW has got the adventure tour thing down.

    [​IMG]
    ^ brand new 'retro' ducati

    Don't pay attention to this, Mamerro got to it before me.

    There's a whole thread like this in Untitled.

    It might be slightly different though.
    And I say this not trying to be an asshole saying "HEY WE ALREADY HAVE A THREAD ABOUT THIS SHIT"
    I bring it up because you might appreciate it.

    -fuse.

    that thread is about motorcycle design.
    this one can be general discussion or whatever you guy want to make it.

    you know why I left KTM out tesseract?
    up untill this year there was only ONE street legal model in North America.
    Only the Adventure 950 was out. I think this year there's an 'S' model of the same bike.

    if a bike cant go on the street, I'm not really into it.

    eeegghhh Carbon Fiber, fiberglass, plastic, etc..Fairings to me look gaudy and completely unneccesary. Clearly they serve an aerodynamic purpose, but I don't plan on going 200mph on the I-10 anytime soon...

    I love the look of a stripped down sport bike. (only works on Ducati)..
     
  12. Ok, i hear that. I'm all about dirtbikes though, comes with the territory

    Use of those materials is more about keeping the weight down as opposed to aerodynamics.
