    Motorcycles

    Surprised there wasn't already a thread on here for this, so figured I'd start one. I ride, and I know a few others have in the past. Curious who all rides and what you have.


    My current one is a little 2006 Honda Shadow Aero 750cc. It had been a while since I rode, so I got something smaller to commute with. Likely will get another one within the year.

    Saaaweeeet ride Don. Thanks for sharing.
    Is there a photo in the Jiggle Hut of you in your full leathers?

    Do you pretend to be behind a shield on R6:S when you ride that badboy?

    Nice bike Don. I use to ride back in the day but got tired of reckless drivers, wind, rain, etc as it was my only transport so just sold it for a car. Last accident I ended up in hostipal with a broken collar bone back in 1998 on Christmas day because I got knocked of by a guy changing lanes who apparently did not see me. I've always considered buying one again but having seen all the maniacs on the roads in London I decided against it.

    Below is photos from the internet but it is near exactly what they looked like. Started at school with a DT50, then TZR 125 and the 250cc. Rode my friends 750 Ninja a couple of times but probably would of killed myself on one of those...the power/speed....is just awesome!

    @DeadChaos - Not much I can think of that is more fun than taking something like that TZR around through backroads and trails.

    @Smokey - Love the F4R man. I'm more of a cruiser guy, but if I ever get a sportbike it'll be an MV Agusta...their Brutale Dragster 800 RR is a thing of beauty.

    90% of the reason I bought was because, damn, is it a work of mechanical art. 10% was the confidence factor of riding a sport bike in traffic. I cant maneuver a larger bike like a can a smaller bike so I looked at sport bikes. Happened to be watching The Dark Knight one time and the F4CC made a 7 second appearance - I was like "What is that beautiful bike and where can I get one". Took me a couple months of searching because the F41000R+1 was a tough find. Not gonna lie, you need a full compliment of tools to keep it on the road. I also like the exclusivity of it.

    The Panhead is my pride and joy.
