I'm breaking my own rule about slagging on bikes in this thread, but...

I just saw the "red" version of the FZ-09, but it's "Your Father's Oldsmobile" burgundy.



Carry on.

Homina freaking hominahomina. That's tasty.

I just looked up the S40 (because I wondered if that was a badging thing with the TU250), and dayum what a transformation.

One of the attractions to me at lest is that other than a slight swing arm modification, it's all bolt on after removing something like 60lbs of stock stuff. The kit is $2500 plus your favorite paint job and donor motocycle.

Yeah, the payoff is grand. A neato single that can squirt around town and look retro, but if you need parts you don't have to know a secret handshake or give up weekends to swap meets.

I really GOTTA stop looking at that. I don't have the cash for the kit or the donor, or space to park it, but jeebs, that gives me sweaty gums.

Interesting take on an old bike, and right in line with what I'm liking today.

It's an older Ninja 250 with the Blue Collar Bobber treatment, this time a Cafe kit instead.

I'd like a '78 Yamaha DT400 with updated suspension and brakes shod with street tires. Not a motard of any sort, just stock looking. That big 2T has a great sound and linear torque and the oil injection makes fueling so easy.

It is very difficult to find a nice one.
