Wasn't it just awesome today? I love livin in the NW when it's like this. I got to take a nice ride on my Aprilia RSV which I havn't been able to do all winter. My dirt bikes are gonna get jealous but what can you do? Anybody else in Western WA that ride?

Let's set up a group ride sometime.

Here's the only street bike I have left.




Got rid of my R1 :(

Nice 'priller, been considering one for my next ride. I'll be riding tomorrow, to work unfortunately. I ride a VFR750, love to go riding with you some time, maybe next weekend if the weather is agreeable.

Sweet. Let's all set up a ride sometimes....we can all get along even with the Harley guys.

My younger bro has a Fat boy I can borrow.

I'm in, all I got is a dualsport though...
Link Posted: 3/5/2005 8:30:58 PM EST
Dual sports are my favorite. I've always wanted to have a dual sport. I ride around in my DRZ400E hoping not to get stopped by the cops.

The line to kick my ass into a bloody pulp if I ever got a motorcyle is long and deep.....

My dad lost his brother to a motorcycle accident. It started 25 years ago when he went head first into a tree, and they peeled his helmet off his head in pieces. He was messed up ever since. Then one day the cops found him dead in a deep ravine around a curve in the road. Apparently he stopped at a nearby rest stop and forgot to retract his kick stand. He leaned into the corner, where the kick stand hit the deck and spun him out. I guess he died quickly.

Also had a cousin in and out of casts for years from a motorcyle accident. He shattered every bone in his right leg. He still walks with a limp. Given all that, my dad says he'll be the first to whoop my ass, then my wife, then my sister.

But still, I'm really drawn to motorcycles. No crotch rockets, but a maybe a BMW R1200 GS or similar. Or a Harley, yeah, that's the ticket! I'd surely kill myself on one of those 120 MPH crotch rockets....

No, it was years ago in Virginia. My dad's brother (Alan) was also in the Hell's Angels and did moonshine. My dad got a small bottle of his shine a few years ago (NASTY shit.) He takes a small shot every year on Alan's birthday. I guess he was the real deal outlaw biker. The cousin? Alan's son of course......

I got out for a little while today.
I ride when I can get away from the wife and kids. Bought an R6 new in 2003, and I've only put 1400 miles on her. A group ride is a great idea! I have noone to ride with here in Puyallup.

That's because winter never ends way up there in pseudo-canada! I would also imagine it's hard to shift wearing mukluks.

I need MTV to pimp my ride.

And yes, it's street legal.
Link Posted: 3/6/2005 5:19:25 PM EST
I have a Street legal mini 50 with a 110 motor, ATK 605 Dirt bike, and a KFX400 quad. I'll be getting another street bike in the future. But in the mean time if anyone wants to ride mini's, dirt bikes or quads with them just let me know.

I think the most fun I've ever had was on one of these.

Thanks for bringing back the good memories.

Niiice,

Aprilia is the Ferrari of bikes, imo. My black Ninja would turn green with envy. Keep the rubber side down.

Oooouu... WMcNasty, your Ducati 996 is most excellent as well. One of my all time favs.
--------
No disrespect to y'all crusiers, but sportbikes spin my turbos.

Have fun, keep safe.

Personally, I think MV Agusta or Ducati fill that roll.
Link Posted: 3/8/2005 10:48:29 AM EST
I really want the Ducati 999. My friend owned an MV. I really loved his exhaust and it looked sweet. If it only performed as well as it looked.

I also wouldn't mind the new Aprilia RSV 1000R Factory or Touono. Or the 2003 Haga edition.

So no group ride yet? We can do better than that I know this weekend was the WAC, how bout next weekend then? We can find a place/time that would work for all us gun/bike nuts. Any suggestions? For any Tacoma/spanaway etc guys I will be riding tomorrow, if you'd like to meet up and ride as a group drop me an IM and we can organize it. If the weather is crap, I may build my AMD-65 instead
