LOL how many CC's is it? I'd post a shot of my 10 speed mountain bike but it's so dusty it looks like the floor it's setting on!

Here's mine a Wal-Mart Huffy special that I bought on clearance. You can tell the usage based on my photo and the size of my gut....

A Huffy? I have two of them, one a single-speed twin-rail, the other is a 10-speed with disc brakes... The twinrail has its crest on the post, and it says "Huffman"; they must have changed the name during its history.

Can't get a pic of the Raleigh, it is still under reconstruction, shall we say. I'm surprised that my idle remark started this diversion!

Default My '95 Ducati 900SS SP

I also have a 1969 Triumph Daytona hard-tail springer chopper in the garage, awaiting either TLC as-is or restoration to original stock form. I sold my Kawasaki KLR 650 dual-sport last spring.

When I was younger, I roadraced in WERA's C and D Production and Superbike classes (Yamaha RZ350 and FJ600; 1980's).

My other bikes are a Bianchi Axis cyclocrosser and a Motobecane LeChampion road bike. Have to pedal those....

Good flying,
desmobob

Man, some really nice rides. I was wondering why nobody was posting on this thread. I just realized I never subscribed after it was switched over. To many bug hits in the head at 80 mph. OUCH!!! What the heck was that?

I did a thread about my mis adventures attempting to go to SEFF in the SEFF forum. Here's a couple of shots of the loaded Dragon.

Th Universal joint was fixed but I was out of cash and had to ride back home.

Oops, I forgot I also have a 1983 Kaw LTD 750 with 37000 miles on her. It has been sitting for about 4 years so I'm sure it needs a ton of TLC. It still looks good, it has been garaged since it was new. I'm the 2n owner.

Nope, but I wish I did. I've been lusting after the new Bonnie and America since they came out. Last year I came VERY close to breaking down and getting one, but I wound up buying a new mustang convertible to replace my truck instead. Oh well, can't have everything. Maybe when I'm done paying off the mustang...

One of our pilots at work has a Triumph Speed Four, a naked sportbike. He let me ride it on base a couple days ago, I was scared out of my mind. Very fast bike. From what I hear, some of the Command level people were pretty ticked about 'some guy on an orange bike' screaming around the base....

OK I'll bite, Was the bike screaming or the guy setting on the bike?

The bike is a very noisy bike. That's why they probably thought I was speeding around base. I was too scared to speed. Honest....

And the nicest of all. No bug hits at 80mph, guaranteed.

Had to sell recently. Trigger fingers in both hands. Releases didn't last, don't have time to break them loose and reach for the brake.


Most of the miles were put on it on the Blue Ridge, from Front Royal to Blue Ridge Ga.

I've owned Yamaha's consistantly since before I had a DL. '72 DT250, '79 XT500, '85 FJ600 & '99 FJ1200.

Now, I have come full circle. Heres my '05 ZUMA


It sports many mods, motor work, gearing change and more. 50cc's gets me 55mph, and 85 MPG. I've never been hassled by the PD on this, but got constantly looked at with my FJ.. gee, I wonder why that is...



I've owned a bunch of bikes. This one by far has given me the most fun per dollar invested (and it isnt considered a motorcycle!). Cheap to ride, own and insure. So cheap in fact, we got my wife one!


Her's has about 50% of the modification work that mine has. Notice her bike still has full plastics (rear fender) , and is lower when compared to mine.

Wish I could find the pictures of my '41 Indian Scout, my RD 400 Yamyha, not realy proud of that one, it ate spark plugs all the time, always at the most inappropriate times. Then there was the 74 Beemer, what a ride that was on the back rodes of West Virginia. The speed restrictions on the Blue Ridge hampered it.

My father let me ride the Indian Cheif a few times. That was when they were just motorcycles, not collectables.
The right hand spark and the left hand spark were confusing sometimes.

And no, she doesn't have an attitude, but you had better stay out of her way and that front end!

Go to post reply, scroll down a little till you come to additional options. In there you will see manage attachments, chick on that. Then click on browse. Find a picture then double click on it. Then click on upload. You might have to resize your picture. If so PM me and I'll try and walk you through it.
