Tell us about your motorcycle(s).

I'm kinda hoping this will turn into a mega thread, but you bastards are an unpredictable lot.

Simply brag about your bike(s) and maybe chuck in the latest pic of it, not a whole fucking catalog, mind you. I've seen threads like these, even stickied, on a lot of forums. *wink wink JK/AC* It's not just mindless dick waving/boob bouncing, it might come in handy if someone has the same bike as you and is on the fence about a certain mod, or you express your displeasure with a mod you performed to ward off others.

Brag away!

If you need a primer -

Make:
Model:
Year:
CCs:
Engine configuration:
Bike category: (RR? Sport tourer? Standard?)
Use: (Track? Track/Street? Commuting? etc)
Modifications: (Lights, exhaust, turn signals, windshield, tape works [body/rim], rear sets, clip ons, engine work, suspension work, more/less plastics, luggage, tires, brand of oil/chain lube [we're DYING to know ] etc etc)

Yes, or at least your very favorite, if you can remember the mods. You and some others would die of old age trying to complete your post otherwise. Shit, I can't remember everything I did to my Ninja 500 four stinking years ago.

I can finally play

Make: Ducati
Model: 916
Year: 1995
CCs: 916cc
Engine configuration: L-Twin
Bike category: RR
Use: Twisties and limited commuting
Modifications: Fender eliminator and back turn signals integrated in the tail. Some green paint on mirrors and inner fairings that we will soon correct. GP style shifting with which I am still not friends yet. Exhaust wrap which I might take off soon. Little red plugs on the frame and pure european carbon fiber sprocket cover (the front fender as well, but that's stock on a pure eurpean bike like this )

I bloody LOVE this bike. It is loud, raw and red. I still don't have the nerve to arrive to work on this thing, it's "old", but I feel like I'm driving a Lamborghini in the slums sometimes...

Oh why not

Make: Honda
Model: 954rr
Year: 2003
CCs: 954, what else
Engine configuration: in-line 4
Bike category: sport
Use: riding around town and the occasional curvy country road
Modifications: helibars, Corbin seat, solo cowl

Tada Baba's masterpiece, and the last sport bike from Honda I really like. Crazy fast, the only bike I've ever had to maintain throttle discipline, the bike can and will outride me.

Make: Honda
Model: Goldwing
Year: 1983
CCs: 1100
Engine configuration: opposed 4
Bike category: touring
Use: freeway and commuting
Modifications: full Vetter fairings and cases

The sort of engineering I'd expect of Honda. Purchased off Craigslist for Mrs. Steingar to get rides (she does NOT like the 954) it was a real surprise. Low center of gravity, smooth power delivery, and the best ride in my stable including my cage. Old and ugly, but seems to have plenty of life. And if it breaks, it didn't cost anything to begin with.

And it was manufactured and spent it's whole life in my tiny little corner of Midgard.

Look similar, but they aren't.

I have the stock rim's but they are in my shed. Too lazy to go and take pics of them. You can peek them in the headlights pic there, with green rim stripes.

This is how they look:

Used for hooligan fun around town

Arrow exhaust

CRG bar-end mirrors
Rhinomoto bar end sliders with mirror mount points
EVR billet clutch pressure plate, custom-ordered red/black two-tone
