    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 :D

    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!

    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.
