    Very nice. A Bonneville is on my short list and that one is sweet.

    Yeah, while I appreciate it as a beautiful piece of machine art, and the details, I can't image actually riding it for long. The riding position seems really incongruous. Floor boards with forward mounted controls, and then the super low bar position.:eek1

    It would look pretty in my living room though! :evil

    I sold my last bike in anticipation of the Versys 1000 coming to the states. I hope Kawasaki have not changed their minds.. Not sure what I would settle for if it does not make it here.

    Gotta keep this thread going, too many harley/cruiser/touring crap. Wanted one of these bad when I was young.

    Gawd. So did I. Back in those days, you could actually get a test ride. I rode one of those and a CB550-four back to back. I couldn't have bought one on a bet, but that didn't stop me.

    I had two of them way back when. They sounded GREAT, but they didn't move or handle or stop any better than other small displacement stuff at the time.

    Their mythology is way bigger than their reality. Nice bikes, for their era, but I don't miss 'em.

    Sorry here's another cruiser for you. I mean it must be a cruiser since it is an Indian.... [​IMG]

    Not a cruiser, since it is an Italian V twin.

    I want one of these. I am sure the experts on ADVrider will know what it is without an explanation.

    I have to quote this once more... I have one exactly like this bike now and I love it. This is my third CB400F that I have owned over the years and this is the model that really set the hook for me when it comes to motorcycles. I rode my CB125S to a dealer when I was 15 (they'd give you a MC license at 15 in California back then) and asked for a test ride on a CB400F and they gave me the keys and let me take it out! The speed blew my little mind! :roflCompared to the 125 it was insane - so it is all a matter of perspective. My current 400/4 has about 5K miles on it, looks like new and, with the sticky Avons on it, is a pretty decent real world bike. Of course you need to rev the thing like mad to get it to go (but it sounds great when you do) and you can't be too big.

    It is one of my favorite bikes (and I have many).

    Yes, those are knobbies.. Not to mention an all black ducati with a red frame, is just hard to beat.
