I ride an SV650 that I am slowly converting into a proper touring bike. I ride year round here in northeast PA, so long as there isn't fresh snow or ice on the roads. I am planning on riding the Trans Taiga this spring/early summer, so my clip-ons will be replaced with handlebars, sport touring tires will be replaced with some dual sport knobbies, and the suspension swapped with a more off-road worthy set.

On my trip to Newfoundland over the summer:


On a trip to West Virginia this fall:

...with suicide shift and foot clutch. That's what those are called. Even though shifting with your hand and clutching with your foot is the cage way to do it, those would be Zuljin hanger handlebars because I'd be hung off them with that set up. But is does look like an interesting way to operate a motorcycle. Power to ya.

Had some paint left over from wifey's jet-ski, so... My logic was that hot pink was worth 1-2 seconds per lap, as you don't wanna be the slow guy on a pink bike. 2011 R6 supersport race bike... my buddy Gregg right behind me...

The rental in Oahu last week. I'd recommend the ride up hwy (or county) 72!













About 180 mi around the island. Was awesome even if I got rained on.

I picked up this bike off Craigslist for $90 with a clear title. It's a 79 CM400T that's been sitting outside since the early 90s in a hoarder's backyard. It's stripped to the frame awaiting a cafe-racer treatment and some top end work. I plan to rebuild and sell for a profit.
