BUMP   Yall ridin or hidin?   Daily the 99 ZX7R. Been staying off the S1000RR cu I’m trying to convince myself I need to get rid of it. KZ1000P project on the back burner. K2 600 i

Not mine, seen in passing and thought it was rad.

I've been dirt bike and quad crazy lately.  Been shopping for a smaller displacement 2-stroke to fuck with in the yard.  Can't decide between the 85s and the KX 100.  Kinda leaning towards the 100, bu

All my bikes decided to die this month. Top-end rebuilds all around.

 

There's a few places I know of that rent bikes for $150 a day. Im talking multistradas and speed triples. I'd be down to check it out.

 

I'm already renting a yaris or an aveo for a week I can't pay for a bike too. How much is it to fix ur top end? I gotta have something to do for a week between beach interviews and apt shopping in San Diego...

the cb900 has no compression in 2 cylinders and he f4i probably has a couple warped valves too. Its been an expensive last couple of months.

Fiddy that thing is fucking hilarious. I love how OCC gets exponentially more retarded as the years go by.

 

I've come to the conclusion that what I like most about motorcycles is that they're the closest I'll come to

flying an airplane, or being an aeronautical engineer... so what I look for in a motorcycle is that sleek, no

frills, tested and simplified engineering that accelerates, dives into corners and sounds like nothing else

out there. Sleek, perfected engineering—And lasts for-fucking-ever. My favorite bikes right now are 24-

Hors Le Mans bikes, which if you're at all acquainted with the styling and engineering of modern-sport

bikes, there's some really amazing querky one-off-ness going on, but also a lot of leading-edge tech that

makes them faster, lighter, more comfortable, and more reliable than the street bikes they started life as.

 

I look at cafes, like really old cafes with the external pipes running oil to the head cylinder, clutch and

running gears outside of the motor block and I think, that looks awesome but I wouldn't be caught dead

riding one through some mountain pass in bumfuck nowhere. ESPECIALLY now that my sideyard is a

graveyard of good looking and well-meaning motorbikes that didn't make the cut. MOST bikes dont seem

to take too kindly to 1000 miles a month.

I need to get me a pickup for the bikes. Theres a yellow one just like this on CL for 9800...

 

Shit that looks cool but something that would likely drive me to kill people if something went wrong:
