Tell me about your MOTORCYCLES


Recommended Posts

Tell me all about them.  Are they fast? loud? fun? Of course they are.

Seriously though how many of yall out there are riding dirt or street while the snow is away?

Personally I have a Yamaha YZ 125 for the dirt and a "supermotoed" Super Sherpa 250 to buzz around town.  I'll post pics when I get one.

I used to have bigger bikes for street and dirt, but honestly I have the most fun on the small light stuff.  No interstates for this loon.

'09 Kawasaki 1400 Concours. with aftermarket exhaust and computer flash. This set-up gives it 102+ lbs of torque and 165 HP to the ground. It's SCARY fast & powerful. Although I have slowed down some, (in my advancing age), I still LOVE a "spirited" ride through the twisties. 

It's my asphalt carving tool of choice.....

2020 Kawasaki KLX 250 Dual sport With exhaust and ECU mods..... of course

I also practice and firmly believe in AGATT,  (all gear all the time)

How do you like that KLX? I love Kawasakis.

I like it. with the ecu mods and the full exhaust it should be around 30 HP. rides great. suspension is a little soft for my fat ass, though. 6 speed, dual disc, inverted forks, dual overhead cam. biggest drawback is the 2 gallon tank. before the mods I was getting 71 MPG. haven't filled up from the last ride yet to see  the difference

Nice.  That KLX is basically the water-cooled, fuel injected update to my Super Sherpa.   Getting 70mpg wringing its neck all around town on a carbureted bike.  I think it makes like 23 hp at sea level 20 years ago so I'd be surprised if I'm getting 15 hp these days.  Love that bike though.

Man that thing just oozes cool.  I'd rather have that than a Ducati any day.  We are a Japanese bike household.

No joke, one time at band camp, I parked my Hawk next to a Ducati Desmosedici at the local shop. A guy pulled up in a car, got out and said “Oh wow!! A Honda Hawk!” 😂
