Looks like I just joined the club, new to me 1988 1000 Hurricane.
It looks like it just came out of the box on Christmas morning! Wow
Amazingly unmolested over the years!
I haven't had a sport bike since I sold my 96 Speed Triple almost 20 years ago.
Had a 900 Ninja, great all around bike. I feel the need, the need for speed!
Can't find any pics of my old Suzuki GS700ES.
Loved that bike
Next up for me: Aprilia RS-660.
I had one in 1994. The gas tank leaked at the rear mount.
Late spring 1985.....
Smoking off the last of my rear tire on my 1984 FJ1100....
I loved this bike
I had a couple of mine out last weekend.
That CBR is stunning. Manufacturers need to get back to that. Someone somewhere posted pictures of motorcycles with a 90s look for the 21st century. I'll look for them, it looks so much better than the transformer thing that's going on today.
Thanks CrapKerouac! I agree. There is something to be said about bright colors and white rims that just set a bike off. They are a definite pain to keep clean though.
Sorry, I forgot I was going to post some pics. Personally, I think manufacturers need to go in this direction instead of the praying mantis or whatever they call today's designs. A look inspired by the restomod scene.
Considering how small the area of paint on a bike is (even a fully faired one) there's little call for restraint. Bikes can always carry brighter, more vibrant colors than cars. I've always felt that bikes need to be the bright points of light in the long string of gray SUVs on our highways. Some of my favorites were the Yamaha "Speedblock" yellow/black, the Honda VFRs in red/white/blue, Suzuki's classic blue/white, or any Ducati in "Tri Colore". Matte paint on a motorcycle is clearly Satan's work.
Love this thread. Wet day here, just read all 51 pages.
How dare you to leave a Kawasaki in Lime green off that list !
I thought that would be taken for granted, given my current ride! (see avatar)
2002 VTR1000F aka SuperHawk - Owned since new - lots O mods
But best was redoing suspenders
Ohlins rear & Racetech springs.
Givi top case, Dry bag & Tank bag - I can & do go anywhere.
Smoke Hole Rd, West Va - (with son & his '07 R6)
The Lord shining his light
Big Pocono State Park - above Camelback ski area
We can still twist some turns
I finally installed a stash of OEM parts I had been collecting for the RWB CBR and took both out for a short spin.
Installed an Uncut rear fender, OEM turn signals, reflectors and rear license plate holder and light.
Ahh, there we go. 2 mint Suzuki's sharing space with all of those incredible Hondas
