Ahh, the Z-Rex. Classic bike, for sure! They're actually in pretty high demand...

There is nothing like doing document delivery by motorcycle. Sure beats trying to park or deal with city traffic. I rode to law school every day that I could. Used to wheelie up onto the curb and stick it next to the bike rack. Then some other jerks started copying me and for the first time in 3 years we started getting tickets.

First rule of city motorcycle parking:

If you can't hide between cars on a side street than stick with safety in numbers.

Is the 'S' silent in scooter?
 
Every time I see the title my mind goes elsewhere, especially when guys are talking about crotch rockets.

Well, I'm not sure which thread has better eye candy, this one or those "Big Rack Wednesday" threads a few years back.

Both could get me in trouble.;)

My street bike in racing trim for Bonneville. 8" swingarm stretch, Buell XB fork and wheels, 4.375" bore engine with extensively modified Hurricane heads by Dan Baisely, Redshift 725 cam, 15:1 compression, Jessell solid lifters, corrected geometry rocker boxes, etc, etc. About 185 rear wheel horse in this trim, depending on the air.

In street trim, lower compression, different heads, different exhaust, etc around 150 RWHP, depending on the air at the time.

My wife calls this my 'Angry Bike', I also have a no frills bagger and an old Panhead chopper.

2012 Triumph Tiger 800 that I picked up in Colorado. It's a great all around bike that has taken me every where from dirt mountain passes to the Million Dollar Highway.

I sold the old shape one for the new and the difference in handling was incredible. The new shape felt almost like riding a 600 in the twisties and yet was still as stable at top end. I have sold it now but will be getting another very soon ... that 300 km per hour thrill is calling :biggrin:

He was making a joke regarding KidA's scooter. I believe it's pictured around post 18, and 69 in this thread.

Thanks for clarifying.

As for taking the scooter, well it depends. Heads up I would kill it, in an index race where repeatability and ability to hit your index time after time, those little bikes can be very competitive, just not very fast.

In advance, godfather's pic is true and verified. Sadly, the story that goes with it isn't near as cool as one would hope....
