Good news: my wife and I have bred our very own scooter gang.
And snapped these. Quite the adventure, I know. Bonus: kitteh photos.
I have two trade offers on the table and I can’t make up my mind!
And it has a roundel.
My buddy finally had time to weld my scooter exhaust back together. I’ve come to learn this is a weak point of the Super 8. The muffler is really heavy, and only held on by two bolts. He decided to brace the repair with a piece of angle iron, so hopefully it doesn’t happen again. He also apologized about 20 times for…
Cruising through the listings on Cho Tot, a popular e-marketplace in Vietnam, I came across what I instantly knew was my future bike: a 1981 Suzuki GN125. It was all original and came with the original, numbers-matching “Blue Card”, the title and registration for Motorcycles in Vietnam. The listing had the price at…
Honda V-twin cruiser. Nice upright riding position. Good sound, but not super loud. Doesn’t vibrate crazily like a Harley. Dual sport tires. I’d rock it.
(Repost for weekend crowd) Since I no longer have a bike of my own I’ve been doing more writing than riding. And because Lanesplitter is as much of a ghost town as HD showrooms this year I’m sharing the content with Oppo!
Just picked her up and have added about 100 km with another hundred to go until home. 07 with just 5k km on the clock. It feels good to have a fast bike again.
Gotta love making silk out of a sow’s ear... or whatever that idiom is supposed to mean...
I went to my third track day/weekend at National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park. I was initially a little nervous after my off at Putnam Park a month ago combined with the remnants of Hurricane Harvey blowing through the night before, but it all came together!
Passed my MSF class this weekend! Now I just need to bring some paper to the DMV, stand around for several hours, and I’ll have my motorcycle endorsement.
Because we all need some good feels today.
(aka CB900F, and for you European Jalops, the Honda Hornet)
So this might be a term that my friend and I used as kids to describe bashing around in the woods on our bikes, but it kind of applies here: it’s not about going out and trying that new trail everyone’s talking about. It’s about taking your bike on that trail no one is talking about. In this case, taking our bikes on…
SLOW, LOOK, PRESS, ROLL...
...and it’s $13,750. Yeah, that’s about what I expected, but not the price range I’m looking at. (It doesn’t have removable batteries either, though, so it was already disqualified.)
Here’s a short breakdown/historical overview/etc. of a 1928 Scott Flying Squirrel. The Scotts were made up until the ‘60s virtually unchanged, and can still be had for prices favorably comparable to a used Harley. One of the most unique Anglo bikes, very light and fast.
I’ll be adding this to my ever-growing list of bikes I want, but will probably never buy
So I’ve been riding a Triumph Sprint ST 955 for four years now. A friend of mine wants to start riding, so I’m highly considering selling him the Triumph. That means I’ll need a new bike, and there are too many ADV bike to pick. Help!
