I remember the first time I rode a CBR900. That was short yet magical ride

I remember seeing an Tamiya model of a Honda CX-650 Turbo and falling head over heels

I have a friend with one of those in his garage in perfect condition - right next to his CX-500 Turbo.

I've always wanted a 2 stroke just for shits & grins



I saw a modded RGV250 in a Brit rag about 2 years ago. They put a RG500 motor in the frame, and then added the swingarm, front and rear suspension, wheels and brakes from a 07 gsxr 750. Did I mention they also added the gsxr fairing as well? 2 pipes came out under the seat and 2 more on each side: that thing was friggin beautiful! I caught major wood in Barnes & Noble magazine section that day.

Someone spent a lot of time and energy making this classic look and handle like a modern bike. Bravo!

Always loved the RZ500...it would look quite nice sitting next to my RZ350 in the garage.

Lots of great looking bikes in this thread for sure, but I'm still partial to the 1990-1994 ZX-7. The green, white, & blue is timeless in my eyes. I really always liked the ram air snorkels going from the fairing and then down through the tank.

My mistress. 1986 Yamaha FJ1200. She has a few mods and has shown her tail lights to quite a few new bikes. The torque is incredible and the ride is smooth. I might not have it In the curves like a more modern bike it's sure a lot more comfortable getting there and holds her own. I dreamed about these bikes as a kid and would drool over them I. The show room but never could afford one. Years later I saw one on the net and all the old lust came back. I bought this bike from the original owner with 11000 miles. It's better today than when it was new.
