Thanks,
Thanks, Rainier. I’ll have to Google a road test report or two. I laugh at the 170+hp and a twelve litre tank. The old Guzzis might not be fast but each of mine has over 20 litres of fuel capacity and a consumption of more than 20km/l on a fast cruise. It gets me over 450km to a tank. A case of the hair and the tortoise....I point out to people there is a huge psychological difference between needing to stop for fuel and wanting to stop.

Now this is a fun thread. Great bikes, everyone!! These are some bikes in CT, a few more are in my office in MA. I think Ducatisti will recognize Pierre Terblanche's MH900evoluzione, the Monster Cromo (why I would want to see my horrific reflection in a gas tank shall puzzle me forever, but I see why Adrian Brody may like it), and the 2009 Hypermotard 1100S (its actually black, nothing like the grey appearance here, but the winter sun is coming right in the window this morning.

Cars and bikes have always been my passion, but bikes even more so. Been riding since a small kid. Dirt & street all types. European and vintage anything is my preference though. Currently I’ve got a 2015 Ducati Diavel Carbon as my road bike. This old 2001 Ducati 996 has been in the stable for many years now and has turned into my dedicated track bike. I’ve also recently started a project to restore this old 1975 Yamaha RD 350 two-stroke that I intend to build as a cafe racer style. If the frame will handle it I’m going to fab up a side car for the dog to tag along.

Love your 996. Ah the memories of those halcyon days of Fogarty, Chili, Corser and Bayliss.

A recent Addition. Just an Amazing Sound!! Nothing Quite Like a Bevel Drive with Conti Mufflers. It Complements its Stable Mate, My Norton. Both Kick Start Only, Right Foot Shifters. View attachment 114602
The colours on this GT... Mesmerising!
I got myself some new Contis for my 900SS, can't wait to finish the rebuild to hear that music once again!

Not Italian, but it is a 2 wheeled stablemate to my Italian. I firmly believe that the engineering behind the Buell’s are top notch, especially for a street bike. This beauty turns 15 this year

That IS good news. The best of the US bunch in my view. I hope they don’t have to revert to Cruisers and Adventure bikes to stay afloat as car manufacturers have had to do with SUVs and 4WD Utes.

I already saw that and am psyched.

A trials beastie?
Yes. Probably the slowest bike here (motor or pedal-powered!) but it can scale tall buildings with a blip of the throttle.

It actually has a comically tall 6th gear for transfer sections but with its pogo stick-like suspension and steep steering angle things can go pear-shaped very quickly.

It's my only motorized conveyance whose top speed will forever, and happily, remain a mystery.

I appreciate the skills of trials riders and the capabilities of the machine. A very nice bike.

I've watched some of those events and they are cool as hell.
