Drag racing or top speed run? Didn't notice that before.

Tom and Zookster thanks for the Gunga Din links. I had never heard of it before.

The Motorcycle Classics article starts out listing a couple of other famous bikes with names. It left out the one with the coolest name though.....the Harley roadracer,"Lucifer's Hammer"

While the Vincent is up there, I don't think it beats the Crocker for beauty.

Girl on a (live) motorcycle, not an old model unfortunately, even more unfortunate I'm not the old model.

It is safe for work, scroll down to "sex and moto" video.

I haven't heard much about Crockers before. thanks for posting that website! Both the Broughs and the Crockers are incredible machines. The Vincents fit right in there with them. Now that I've seen what kind of price they sell for, Don't think that there will be one in my future.

Great picture (2nd one), from a photography standpoint, it's brilliant.

Me too, from an earlier post suggesting a look of "innocence" I see quite the opposite: knowledge, understanding, experience? I probably would have been in love at first sight if I'm not already
