They should have named that bike the Valkyrie.

If you lived here, you couldn't either, so trust me, you're better off.


Imagine bikes being twice as expensive as in the USA and making just
$500/month on average.
Gotcha. You just always come up with the most interesting bikes to post up. Don't stop!

I'm gonna "not stop" right away!


Here's one with the same engine, the 660 thumper as in the MT03 posted
above (and XT660R, XT660X and XT660Z-Tenere)



The Aprilia Pegaso Strada Factory with some carbon bits, more ground
clearance (or was it just seat height) and wider bars then stock.

The bike also runs on spoke whees and is about 4lbs lighter then the regular
Strada.

Oh yeah, radial front brake too, the regular doesn't have that either.

I thought I recognized that frame and engine!

Hmmmm.... And I just happen to have a '93 900SS lurking in the corner of the garage. I've thought many times of stripping off the bodywork and doing something different with it... Like maybe a sorta naked, quasi-cafe racer or something with regular bars in place of the clip-ons, a round headlight, etc Hmmm... Project ideas just keep piling up!

I want one of these to take on my RV, because it is compact and lightweight, and looks like fun.

Waiting for tire to be mounted on my Wee, came across this machine. First time i've seen one in person, must say it is quite tempting. Good thing i'm way too broke to be serious.
