Your Bike
« on: February 27, 2011, 05:09:14 PM »
So we have a "your car" thread, but no thread for bikers, and I'm aware that once or twice we've almost derailed the Cheese thread with bike-talk. Well, here it is.

Post pics of your bike(s), tell your bike stories, talk about what bike you'd like to ride/own/have hawt sex on, and generally discuss any and all things bike related.

Car drivers, cyclists, pedestrians.... GTFO.

(Unless you also have a bike)



I will kick the thread off with a pic of my current Suzuki Marauder (not the import) named Siouxsie (yes, I know, but it was either some variation of "Suzie" or "Miranda"):



And the Kawasaki ER6N I'm bringing home at some point in the next few weeks:




They wanted to have a good time, but they were like children playing in the street; they could see one after another of them being killed -- run over, maimed, destroyed -- but they continued to play anyhow. We really all were very happy for a while, sitting around not toiling but just bullshitting and playing, but it was for such a terribly brief time, and then the punishment was beyond belief; even when we could see it, we could not believe it.

I'm currently into anything Ducati. I like the Monster 696 but have drooled over some of the Streetfighters once or twice. I hope to get a Vincent Black Shadow one day.
Cried then the bersarks, carnage they had thoughts of, wailed then the wolf-coated and weapons brandished.

Far beyond the dark stream we'll meet again.
Across the wilderness and we will be home.
Gather your strength, don't be afraid.
Far beyond the dark stream, we'll meet again.

An original I hope, not a new one?

Well, at least it's not a scooter. In which case you would be mocked relentlessly forever.

:lol: I don't think there are any "new" ones left. They are one of most desirable bikes in the motorcycle world, so I doubt I can get one when I have the cash for it. They are already going for $80,000.

I desire an old-looking bike. Like a Minsk or something.

On a similar note, I like the one you have more than the one you're going to buy. :P

I'm working on the premise that as long as somebody wants to pay an extortionate amount of money for one, there will always be somebody to make it and sell it.   :D  There will be new Black Shadows in the future, I have no doubt. Granted, you'd have to win the lottery or successfully sue a rich person to be able to afford one, though..

Yeah she's a real beauty, a clean looking little cruiser. But I've outgrown her now. :(

Little being the operative word :3

Which coincidentally also is why I got rid of my Red Rose and got the Savage.

You make me want the XVS650 Dragstar (Custom)  ;(

Also, I like the looks of... Rosie... more than... the other one. But I'm probably biased towards little things!

Did Jace show you the picture of the Kawi VN1500 I lank him the other day? It's really sweet. Only £2499, I'm trying to talk him into buying it when you're over here. :D

You should've heard the Rose though, 125cc two-stroke, it's like two flies lost in a can. Good fun though (massive acceleration once it hits 7k revs) and a nice riding position due to being quite high for a cruiser.

The kawa has a way silly seat and it looks somehow squashed sideways o.ó

Haha, silly engine sounds! I'll never understand why they make two-stroke cruisers, it sort of goes against the whole point of them. My Suzuki has a lovely deep rumble, like a tiger purring. Too had it doesn't ride like a tiger :D  But it's quite nippy and agile for a cruiser... I'm not sure how I'd cope of I had to ride a cruiser bigger than 650cc. Much as I'd love a Thunderbird I bet both me and bike would topple the very instant the revs got too low.

I know, the kawi seat looks silly, but it's hella comfy. In the same place they have the Kawi, they also have -

An XVZ1300:



A Midnight Star (I'd like it more in black than blue though):



And a Silverado!



I personally think the Silverado and the XVZ look too Americanised, possibly due to the heavy fenders. The Silverado also looks heavier in general, for its slightly smaller engine size.
