i like the bars.

i had a 97 dyna(fxdl.) just traded it for a 2015 dyna(fxdl.)
it had 3 miles on it when i got it a month ago and now it has almost 700

i had a suzuki intruder that i picked up cheap and my son just turned 18 and is about to graduate so i gave it to him

the rags are not there for any leaks. i was cleaning some things off and was too lazy to move them




this was my 97. i loved that bike but the 15 is sweet.
that 103 twin cam is a monster

Sorry about the dark exposure. It was a long ride and I wasn't getting up to do a photo shoot.

The wife finally gave in and said I could have a new bike

The Harley is now in bits awaiting a long rebuild and I'm scaring myself silly on this beast



Though to tell the truth, it's a very easy ride, even round town. Handles lovely in the twisties too.

Haha, awesome! I had my first wet ride yesterday and wasn't paying attention overtaking a line of cars, span the rear up at 70 and when I looked in my miror about 30 quid's worth of rubber had turned to steam and smoke!

nuts how much power goes through that back tyre, ain't it?

I'll be honest

I'm a fair weather biker nowadays, thought she'd be winterised by now but the weather is holding
So tomorrow I'm taking her out early and going for a country lane session, followed by some cruising and maybe some wind in my hair, bugs in my teeth riding


My kids arrive on wednesday, and I've never had the chance to take them out

Ride of a lifetime coming up

I'd love to see a pic

I'm thinking of building a cafe racer after we move next year, but reality means it will probably a couple years yet, I'm thinking a Triton or getting a Kawasaki Z1

Plenty of time to think about it yet

Oh and welcome to ATS, sorry I missed you, click between my tigers at the bottom of this post if you want a free avatar................ride it like you stole it

Wish I'd seen this thread when it started! Some great bikes here. And they bring back some great memories. I don't ride any more, but I miss it.

Back in the day, when I lived in Australia, the bike I enjoyed most was my 1978/9 Yamaha XF 750E. Shaft drive triple, DOHC, triple carbs. Handled surprisingly well for such a heavy bike. But having shaft drive was great for touring. I once rode it across to Perth from Adelaide (~3,000 km) for a New Year's Eve party. With my wife riding pillion.


Fabulous trip! There's a stretch of Highway One way out in the desert on the way that's 160 km (~100 miles) absolutely dead straight. And naturally, bikers like to ride it in no more than 1 hour.


On that bike, 100mph was obviously no problem at all. And in case anyone thinks that's a crazy thing to do, the road is open, tarmac is excellent, there are no trees at all (and I mean NONE!), nowhere for any wandering animals to jump out of. As long as you do the run in good daylight and keep your eyes peeled, you're fine. Just do not try it at night.

Before I had the 750, my usual road bike was a Yamaha R5B. An early 70s 350 2-stroke twin. Usual style of Japanese bike of its era. The frame flexed like crazy if you pushed hard through bends and the brakes just weren't really up to the task. But it went like a scalded cat.


The coolest bike I ever rode for handling was a friend's 1976 Ducati 750 SS. Twin cylinder thumper that sounded just gorgeous. And Ducati always made fantastic frames. Totally solid round the bends even when your knee was tickling the tarmac.

I know bikes have made leaps and bounds since way back then, but if I ever have the moolah I'd love to get my hands on one of those Duke 750s.
