I need a vacation....
I have a new distraction.
So this is keeping you away from these hallowed halls? How dare it!
But then again... nice ride
That's a proper hog, that.
Looks like it might be a hard tail, though. Not sure whether your old folk back is going to agree with that at all, mate
Actually it's a Softail.
yeah, thought it might be that. Well, good on you
Long time no see people!
That's a nice bike you got there Jake! Good to see someone enjoying a Cruiser, been looking to get one myself!
Edit: Oh wow, I didn't realise how long ago that message was!
Yes the old folks have been languishing in laziness!
eh, the whole forum kinda has been tbh
Midnat is an oldy now?
if we go by the rules set up at the beginning of the thread, then yes. I will be 27 this year so, maybe not as old as some here, but eh.
I know those feels....
Been getting back into bikes a hell of a lot in recent years. Probably half of the reason I have not been around here much.
Been doing a bit of classic road racing and probably going to do a lot more in the near future. Plus I am almost old enough to compete in "seniors" racing (45+).....not quite sure how to take that one yet, got a couple of years to figure it out.
That's a proper machine, BFD.
Looks like a Ninja to me - what sort of cc/bhp do you get from that?
Yeah the full green one is a Zx6r "Ninja" 636cc about 120hp give or take. I actually sold it 6 months ago and have gone European with a 1000cc Aprilia Rsvr. Still getting my head around that one....
The older bike is a 1981 KZ750, is making about 88hp according to it's last run on the dyno. It is log booked to run as a Period 5 race bike here in Aus. Hell of a lot of fun to ride....skinny rubber and 80's brakes (at least they are disc) lots of frame vibration, a real riders bike.
I've added to my distractions.
Rode to the West coast this spring and to the East coast last month.
That must have been an amazing trip!!!!
@jake1964 So jealous! That looks like so much fun!
PS I hate you!
PSS Ok no I don’t but still super jealous!
We both know you don't hate me.
