The MotoGP thread showed me there are a few enthusiasts out there. Let's see your bikes!

Here's my old '89 FJ1200:



And my newer toy/ratbike/commuter SV650:


I don't wheelie on the street, this was on an old closed airbase.


Yes I have a car pipe! And it's sexy growley.




Let's see some more bikes!

Nice bikes. I've always been tempted but never bit.

I like the SJ best. Is it like a bandit?

My older Honda VFR


This is on the infield at New Hampshire Speedway, where a regional vintage motorcycle club races, on the road course (using only part of the oval).

Have cornerworked a few times, but becoming lazy, these days.

EDIT: mice ate holes in my tent, need to order a repair kit...!

This is my daily rider. That is when I'm not taking my boy to daycare. I still haven't figured out how to use one of those net thingy's to keep him on the luggage rack.



Dusty? Sure but you don't notice when you are on it.



A very modest liquid regulated 750cc V-Twin that has even some of the older guys thinkin it's at least 1300cc.

heres my commuter. A Honda VTX1300C I almost rode every day this past winter, but below 30 isnt fun. Its my first bike, but Im already looking for something bigger. As of now my next one will either be the Yamaha Raider or the Suzuki M109.

Had one of these back in my younger days. Still can't believe I lived through it.



This is what I want now.

The SV is very different from a Bandit. The SV is a V-twin 650 or 1000, and the Bandit is a 1200 inline four. They're both great, inexpensive bikes IMO.
