Orfy, nothing is a inexpensive as an Kawasaki EX500..!

They are club-raced everywhere and are tough as nails.
Bonus: nobody is going to steal an EX500.

Oh, you must have a tiered license system, don't you..?

I somehow wish the U.S. had such, as I find absurd that just about anybody (once licensed, mostly a joke) can go and ride a 135 HP, high acceleration machine off the lot, without elementary knowledge of, say, braking...

Crappy pic, but the only one I have that shows all of the current goodies:



My other ride is a 1972 Honda CB750.

I can't find a pic of my 79 Yamaha, but I found a pic of a similar bike online:

Mine is the same except I have a fairing on mine. And mine doesn't look nearly as nice as this beauty. It's sitting in my shed right now waiting patiently for me to get it running again.

I've been contemplating a new set of pipes. I want something that will idle pretty quietly, but really roar when I crack it open.

Here's the only pic I have of my '03 1200S, the day I brought it home:

What a great thread!

Firstly, my wonderful little dual-sport BMW F650. It's such a fun bike. It has home-made panniers and topcase that the previous owner designed. I love 'em.




Next, my Screaming Meanie, a BMW K1200R. It makes a great sport-touring bike, but I have to be careful that it doesn't get me into trouble...



I also have a 1988 K75S, but I can't find my pics right now...

I don't have a bike. Sorry.

But I did see a kid ride through my neighborhood on something very much like this a few weeks ago. I almost crashed my car, because I was thinking "Is that kid riding a cooler?" He had it going fairly fast too!

Yeah, Jill! Nice Beemers! That K is a screamer!


This was my baby. Gone but not forgotten.



Always loved this shot.




My favorite shot. 70+MPH one handed on dirt! Yahooo! You can see the road's bumpiness in the reflection on the helmet. Bike smoothed it out very well.

Bruscar,

What a pretty Oilhead! I've always been fond of the GS, but find that the Big Pig doesn't suit my riding style. Now, the new F800GS that is coming out...drool!! Might have to seriously consider one of those, once they work the kinks out. (And if they can ever get the damn thing to market.)

Those are nice pics, especially the train one.

My 1978 Kawasaki KZ650 Franken-bike

Last year


Here's how it looks right now.


The whole front clip is from an early 90's EX500. The headlight and flyscreen are from a Buell Lightning. The swingarm is from a early 90's Kawasaki Zephyr 550. Rear wheel and brake are from an 86' ZX1000. I have rearsets off of an 04' GSXR 750 that I will be installing. And the solo seat I carved myself and had recovered locally. The motor is apart for cleanup/valve/head work and maybe more......
