    40 years ago for me the Triumph Cub was the bike I lusted after. The idea that someone could ride a 500cc or 650cc bike was crazy, they were just too big and powerful:lol3

    When it comes to bone stock bikes, I would go for the Belgarda Yamaha TT600S. I know that she is nothing special, but I like the elegant lines of this Italian Yamaha.

    The Cagiva Rally Elefant is my all time fav in the modified class.

    In the Scramblers Category, IMO, your bike should be one of the finalist :thumb

    ps x the OP: since there are too many lovely dirt bikes here, it could be an idea to categorize them as follow: MX, Trial, Rally, Scrambles and so on...

    I agree, that is a nice looking bike. I like the beach shot best.

    Isn't there some video in the Scrambler thread of that bike being ridden hard and fast off road, with jumps, etc.??

    How about a Hodaka Ace 100 Super Rat?? :rofl :lol3
    It was my first bike and to follow was a Super Commando.

    Ace 100 in pic. I will need to find the Super Rat pic.

    I had to upgrade sence all my friends were riding mid 90's Honda's and Yamaha's but it was restored and sold to a collector.

    You're joking right?

    Just cos it's old doesn't mean it's good looking!

    I'm still subscribed to this thread in the vain hope I'll see some pictures of nice looking bikes, not old nails we once owned but have moved on from!
