Today my baby arrived from out of state. She is a Kawasaki Ninja ZX7RR. She is named Ruby (for obvious reasons). I've always loved the shape and style of the Japanese racing bikes, and the absolute power of even the smallest and stock bike is a thrill.

I have been riding since I could pretty much walk. For me, two wheels is an escape, there's nothing to describe what it feels like tearing along with nothing but you and the bike between the road unless you've been there.

Of course it comes with it's perils, and I have gone down a few times, but for me the passion outweighs the risks.

I am interested in hearing about and seeing other ATS members who love the ride as much as me, and would love to see your bike. Doesn't matter if it's a Japanese crotch rocket, a cruiser or even a monster Harley.

If you love bikes, and want to show 'em off, this is the place to be.

Keep em coming bikers.

Ahh...ya...a little wind in the face on a Monday morning sounds awesome!



A nice bike goes good with the coffee (don't ride and drink for your own safety
)!

Wow, I'm seeing some awesome rides here....

It's good to see the biker element coming out here, I was always curious how many people here were avid bikers.


And yeah, I'm the same, I don't get to ride these days as much as I would like. Having two girls full time makes it a little hard. But I get out when I can.

Now there's my dream right there. Currently looking for a road/trail, and I would absolutely love to be trekking about the bush on something just like that.

You have my jealousy

Ahhh...fellow motorcyclists!


I've been riding since I was knee high to a grasshopper.
From quads and dirtbikes to cruisers and sportbikes.

I'll have to post pics of some the bikes I've had the pleasure to own.

Currenty, I sold my Harley for money to finish other projects...
Then I bought a Honda Hornet(cb919 or cb900f) and love it.

I've had every brand from American to Japanese...
...and I keep coming back to Honda.

They make incredible machines that surpass all in terms of reliability.
I'll admit it, I'm not a huge fan of Harley anymore.
Too much of a fan club that I never felt a part of.
Although their vintage bikes strike my fancy. (if built right)


But:
There's nothing like the thrill of two-wheels.
(well besides the opposite sex...
)

And I thought I overpacked!
LOL. Just kidding. But in all seriousness, that's the one thing I didn't think through when I bought mine. My luggage toting options are severely limited.
I sat on it and was sold, all rational thought ceased immediately.

Nice thread. Those ZX7 are getting hard to find!
I'm 21 and I've had 7 bikes so far. I like to get used ones off craigslist and fix em up, ride them for a while then sell for more. It is kind of a hobby, cars and bikes. But I have been riding since I was about ehhh 9 or so. I'm not a bike bigot like some people are ....cough many of you know who I am talking about. So as long as I am two wheels I am happy!


But I haven't even thought about selling the bike below. My baby. 82 KZ550a1, 610 kit, jetted, exhaust, ignition mods. It rips.




Some of the other bikes that have come and gone.

GS550 Bobber I built


My old YZ250


79 KZ650


87 Yamaha Radian YX600


72 Kawasaki KZ900/ Z1. One of the first 800 made. bought it for 200 bucks, Sold it to a guy in japan a couple weeks later for 6 grand. In the same condition.



I had a Yamaha Virago 920 as well, but I dont have any pictures of it. it was a POS! I got rid of that bike quick.

Been riding since ~'64. Started on a minibike powered by a "borrowed" Briggs&Straton lawnmower engine.

Hi Templar,
Currently I ride a 2009 GSXR 1000,before the Suzuki,I always had Kwackers (including a H1 2T triple,which I totalled and almost bought it!) The ZX 7 is a lovely bike,that is one of the few bikes (apart from the ZX9) that I would consider swapping the Gixer for!

Once riding is in your blood it's hard to shake free.
Never met a biker that never got a ticket .




WABASHA, Minn. (AP) — With a State Patrol airplane overhead, a Stillwater motorcyclist hit the throttle and possibly set the informal record for the fastest speeding ticket in Minnesota history: 205 mph.
