=3sum;19473156...you must get new bikes every couple years to look at that as "old".

My guess is it's newer than my Trophy, which is only fifteen years old. Technology? Um.... not so much. It's got electronic ignition and that's about it.

Right, electronic ign, disc brakes, saftey switches, hoards of plastic, ect...

My avenger is from the days of stainless steel fenders and fiberglass covers. Back when they were boarding up the british shops.
Makes the trophy in question look like rocket science!



It'll still start when the kickstand is down. There are no sensors.
Can you say double leading shoe? Preston Petty? Super Trapp?
Lucas?

I knew you could, but that's why I say the trophy is modern...

a '95 ST1100. Rode from Atlanta to the St. Louis Arch. Hung out for about 30 minutes and went back home.

I've done a couple more (undocumented) on a 2007 Tiger 1050.

My current ride. Not much to look at but a lot of fun and I'm not too worried about dropping it in the bush :)
