Were the 650s shaft drive?
KTM 640 Adventure : make sure your fillings are tight.
Ducati Monster 797: Beginner bike my ass.
Chain drive. The good ones had drum brakes. But then I digress.
Suzuki DR 350 - Don't know what you got til its gone.
Suzuki SV660 - Fits like a glove.
Indian Scout - Great sex in an awkward position.
HD Sportster - If there was a bike to ride stoned, this would be it.
Yamaha XSR900 - I just embarassed another guy on a super sport.
BMW R1200GS: Who knew adventure was spelled S-t-a-r-b-u-c-k-s?
So true. I sold mine 2 years ago and now realize what an amazing unicorn that bike really is while daydreaming of a replacement. If only the dr650 was 75lbs lighter.
The only Honda that can make a PC800 look good and slightly less threatening to your manhood:
Honda SL70......great starter
Honda SL350 Motorsport...high school memories
Yamaha. WR450... do it all off road
BMW R1200RT....tour the country
Yamaha YZ-85 - Hey this isn't that fas-HOLY SHIT IT'S ON THE PIPE
Yamaha YZ-125 - Hey this isn't that fas-HOLY SHIT IT'S ON THE PIPE 2: Electric Boogaloo
Suzuki DR650 - Instead of being good at one thing it's one step above terrible at everything
Triumph Daytona 675 - It's fast, it's got torx, it looks like sex, what more do you want? Sound? No it sounds fine, the English are a deaf people.
It seems good, but it's a BMW, so...
94 Honda CB1000 "Big One" - I love this bike and it looks like a motorcycle is supposed to but I wish it had 20 more HP and weighed 100lbs less.
82 Kawi GPz-1100 - How can this old technology be this much fun?
2013 Husqvarna Tr650. Red headed orphan child that is almost perfect but parents didn’t want
1970’s Minitrail 50- I’ll take my right leg medium rare.
1972 Yamaha DT-1- I’ll take my right leg medium.
1976 Husqvarna WR360- I’ll take my right leg well done and the kick start is on the wrong side.
1981 Honda CX500- Most 250’s have better power to weight ratios.
1982 GL1100 GoldWing- So this is what it’s like to drive a LazyBoy.
1982 Honda XL250S- Like a puppy turned into an old dog, it’ll leave lasting memories when departed.
1989 Honda XL600V TransAlp- It’s not like the rest of its XL600 siblings.
2017 Honda Africa Twin- I never knew any motorcycle could be this good!
BMW...adding to your adventure in many unexpected ways.
Hrm, 478 lb motorcycle with 42 horsepower doesn't seem that bad to me. (Factory rated 48hp, actual was 40-42 at the rear wheel) My 82 CX500 Custom would run circles around my dad's 2002 Ace 750 back in the day. It'd win a drag every time, no matter who was on each bike. I wouldn't consider the power to weight ratio bad on a CX at all. That Ace weighed more and had far less horsepower. (Both were 100% stock bikes).
A 478lb bike with 42HP? LOL!
KTM Ready to Repair
KLR650 - Who knew you could make a reliable engine out of compressed bubblegum wrappers?
Pretty good for 1978, methinks. 14.0s at 92mph in the quarter mile. Hell, in 2002 the Shadow 750 had 38 rwhp, weighed 502 lbs, and took 15.09s at 86.2 to do the quarter mile. And it has 25 more cc to help it go that much slower.
