No problem, I own many heavy underpowered pigs, as long as they look cool. This thread is called which bike do you want today, not which bike meets old hippie's approval.

Have you seen the video's out there for these hammerhead Jackpine's? They don't look "underpowered". Ok so maybe it's not a 200hp Desmo but considering what most people would do with a bike like this i think it looks quite capable.

Ups for the Ducati SS-es. Particularly the Superlight.

One buddy had a white frame 900 like the picture; another has this one:



Can't bring himself to sell it.

Dang. ^ Those are pretty bikes.

Today, it's 40F and rainy. I'd like an ST1300 on a day like today.

I hear you. I can't wait to ride one and see what it's all about with my own seat-o-thepants meter.

2100 cc that runs in a 3000 cc fuel class and only makes 160 hp. Ho Hum......

I have a good friend who has a 1954 1600 cc Vincent in the 1600 cc bare bike fuel class who holds a 2 way Bonneville record of 215 mph with it, and he did it 30 years ago.

Needless to say, I'm not impressed.
