mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmotorbikes!

Recommended Posts

I've decided I'm getting into sport bikes asap, but i'm keeping the CB900C as a perfect touring bike. It's a fucking tank in more ways than one. It's stable at high and low speeds, reliable, cruises at 80-90 with a top speed aerodynamically reduced to about 110. If I plank on it i'll get 120.

 

 

Anway Psalm, if you read this shit, what are you thinking about the Moto3? Im fucking upset about the disappearance of two strokes. They're faster, lighter, and easier to work on for the blue collar builder. I heard I can get a kenny roberts-esk YZ500 for under 12k with all the replacement parts i'd ever need. Fuck state law saying two strokes aren't street legal.

moto3 is exciting as hell!!!!!! Who cares if blue collar people cant do it the shit is exciting! Motorcycle racing is a rich mans sport any way you slice it. Im never gonna do it the old days of racing riding up in your GMC Van with the bike in the back is over technology killed the brute force...

 

I would rock a two stroke tho all day those things are pissed!!!!!!!!!!!

 

More of a Freddie Spencer fan myself...

Seeks I think you should clean this up for me. Maybe without the upside down forks. Not sure why i gave it those. Leather helmet, pink beard, green skin and tube socks gotta stay.

obviously it is not a motorcycle but it is powered by a v-twin and looks like fun to drive/ride

not sure how accurate this info is: built out of an old side car and powered by an old hd 45 flat head

Yeah, that was some really sad news about Marco Simoncelli, one of the most exciting riders in MotoGP since Rossi's heyday.

Very talented guy and so young. Massive tragedy.

Really not that interested in watching the video, I didn't see it at the time and I don't want to.

 

In other news, I passed my CBT which in Britain means I can ride anything up to 125cc.

Had to ride around central London on a Honda CG125 and prove my competency.

In the market now for a cheap 125 which is cool and sexy.

Any ideas?

Going to give it a year of riding the 125s till I go for my big bike licence.

:cool:

after getting dumped on with snow, and my poor bike sitting in front of the house under a tarp covered in it, we're back up to acceptable temperatures. i need to go do some riding today.

Jackson buy the cheapest dumbest 125 you can. When you move up to a 250, buy a GSXR600 with a governor on it. THere's just about nothing redeemable about the run of 125's and 250's.

im strting to accept those kinds of bikes, although they still look like one of the robots mammero draws.

that shit coming off the rear though... could they make that any fucking uglier? why not just tuck all that shit up under neath the rear, instead of having this big fucking appendage that sticks out? thats weird.

 

took a ride up to a buddies shop in new hampshire the other day. 40 degrees and 20mph winds. not the brightest shit ever, but was fun.

dude specializes in buying them, fixing them, then shipping em off to buyers in japan. if anyone wants to save a classic panhead from the nips, holler at him.

i strap too much shit to the bike to lose the sissy bar, sorry homie. i will fab up a better one over the winter though.

 

rims are already got. satin black mags of a super glide, just gotta get time to put em on. in the next week or two.

ass end up? naw, its not a dx. its only lowered 1/2" off stock. like it that way. i'm only 6'3" ya know? gotta make sure i can get my feet down. ;)

exhaust is rhnehart. as soon as its too cold to ride its getting pulled. shields coming off, heatwrap on the pipes, bbq black on the rear. its gonna be dope. i was gonna get new exhaust but honest, that shit runs fine.

 

beyond all that, all you need to know about my bike is that it was 38 degrees out and i was still blasting down the highway at 90. thats what matters, right?
