I think he def has the right idea. Pumping himself up and then right before start going completely still in concentration. Love it when he punches the bike.

reminds me of some stupid fight theory i read somewhere. when starting a fight start screaming and yelling like a maniac. 2 benefits:
1. It pumps you full of adrenaline.
2. You look like a nutcase and confuses the other guy.

Havent had a chance to test it...yet

So the wife wants us to get a bike that we can ride together (She hates riding the XR and the RD has a single seat) her requirements are that it’s “cute” (I think that means classic looking) and that the seat is low enough that she can touch the ground.
I want something I can tour on and not be board out of my mind.
So I’m thinking Triumph … She likes the Bonneville

and I like the scrambler

but I’m not sure about a parallel twin for touring. I did ride a Thruxton

for about 200 miles around the county side near Muchin once and I think I could have done twice that but I took it on the Autobahn and topped it out at about 115-120mph, it didn’t really pull very hard at all and I couldn’t get the front wheel off the ground no matter how hard I dropped the clutch, kind of disappointing,
Another bike that has crossed my mind is HD’s XR1200 but the passenger seat looks kind of shity and the pipe looks close to the passengers leg (something she dosn't like about the scrambler.)

Anybody got any suggestions.

But I'm biased

If it needs to be more classic looking, maybe one of these guys:



Honestly though, depending on your definition of touring, I wouldn't call any of the bikes mentioned so far "touring" bikes exactly...
