    Need to try harder, this bloke managed 150mph in his speedo’s

    (not on a Fizzie, it has to be said).

    One of mine….

    Replaced with similar…

    And it was nice to be racing this 2T when everyone else on the start line was going to 4T…

    A bit of a marmite bike, but I think my GSA is cool…

    Motorbike equivalent of an Orange Five, you see frikkin’ loads of them and they are way over the top for the ride they’re being used on

    I know, I know….. πŸ™„

    I made a huge mistake test riding one and instantly falling head over heels with it.

    I really love the boxer engines and I’m not old enough to ride an ‘RT’ or ‘R’ yet πŸ™‚

    That 1200R Classic is the best looking BMW, IMHO.

    Amplebrew: I really want to hate that GSA but considering I was admiring the new Triumph Tiger Explorer XC (looks lush in Khaki….) and there are, er, strong ‘similarities’ between the two I can’t…. I’m still humming and heying over doing a DAS this summer. If I do it’ll be some adventure variant for sure… 😳

    Epicyclo: ye gods mans, what is that behemoth? That said it looks good for tooling around Oz for though.

    My only bike to date was a skanky AP when I was 16,

    Metalheart – get a Tiger 800.

    I’ve been riding sports bike since 1998 and riding an adventure style bike has opened up a whole new world of biking. I thought I’d miss my sports bikes, but I regret not coming off them years ago.

    I test rode a Tiger 800 just before buying my GSA and it was a lovely bike. The Tiger has got an amazing engine that has lots of grunt for an 800. I also test rode an F800GS and the Tiger was a far nicer due to the engine.

    I very nearly bought the Tiger 800 as I was really impressed with it and only really went for the GSA as I preferred it’s larger size and really love the boxer engine.

    Whilst the GSA is a doodle to ride, it is a big heavy bike and I’m not sure I’d recommend it for a 1st bike.

    No one said it had to be petrol, I had the pleasure of doing all the CAD work for the frame, suspension & plastic’s.

    saying that, I went past a very futuristic looking mototrbike the other day, looked pretty cool and I’m 99% sure it was electric.
    A quick search can’t find anything that looked similar though.
    it looked like a sports bike. anyone know what it might have been? there can’t be that many around?

    Sadly I found out a guy at my work just sold a Tiger pretty cheap (it had a ridiculous, apparently, 8k mileage for a 2 yo bike)….

    Assuming I do do it, I’ll be looking for a Transalp, V-Strom or similar. No desire to go big for a first bike….

    Definitely have a go on a Tiger if you get a licence and want an adventure style bike; the engine is in a completely different league to it’s competition.

    BMW R850C – This and the R1200C were BMW’s failed attempt to go for the cruiser market.

    Really horrible things to ride in standard setup, but about an hour with the spanners, a few minor mods (cheap), and it’s a brilliant bike. I’d sooner go round Oz on one of those than one of BMWs “offroad” bikes.

    Damn this thread,I want a cafe racer for the summer now πŸ™‚

    Premier Icon epicyclo

    Here’s my actual cafe racer

    I built it for 24 hour racing. Heavy flywheels (MSS) balanced by Dodkin for smoothness, medium CR, and a ported 350 head to get a straight but small bore for the carb. Stoned the cam followers to change the lift characteristics. Flat out at 108 but could hold it almost anywhere. Nothing could stay with it around Loch Ness because the handling was pin sharp so I could hold my speed longer.

    It never did get to a 24 hour though. I never had enough money for the travel and entry fees. πŸ™‚

    How did they get an old maggot to look this good – wouldn’t have sold mine if I knew this could be done!!!

    This one I made with my brother. Made everything inc frame, swinging arm, pipes, tank etc etc etc and even billet crankcases.

    Klumpy… Yep, its a 2000 YZ 250. The dark blue Blade I sold to a mate in Nov 08 and bought back last year. It had been stored outside and needed a lot of work. Glad to have it back, sat on a new one and it felt like a minimoto.

    I’ll stick a pic of mine up when I finish the bloody thing, stupid basket case rebuilds and discovering snapped off starter motor bolts when you try to assemble the thing! πŸ‘Ώ

    Both ends of the spectrum…

    That Cub is really nice, simply but well done.

    I’m drawn to the Ducati Diavel at the moment. It must be a sign of my age.

    Polishing chrome wires is one thing, but when you have to keep the brass and copper polished as well…
