Needs a high fender and some decent knobs. It would help the looks quite a bit.

What is it? Looks like a Japanese street bike from the 90's.

I'm not feeling it at all ;


Whats up with the front brake lines? Seems like a branch away from tearing off.

I'll stick to the best bike they ever made.

And some time on the lift....how's that electrical / lighting issue coming along? If that bike isn't sorted (or at least washed) by the GLDS at St. Helen, I will poke fun at you

Todd, I'll still ride with you, especially now that I have a street bike with the same aloof standards I can't believe I'm going Italian again.....

Well...it is air cooled and only 2 valves per cylinder so does that qualify? I still might pick up an old classic to ride with the wife

My hero

I saw this "dude" riding a HUGE bike a few weekends ago. I think he must be an Expert rider to be pushing that thing through the woods........... The front tire hardly ever touched the ground.

He doesn't always ride bikes in the woods....but when he does he rides the big ones. Just staring at a tire can make it go flat. He's the most interesting man in the woods...
