Show off your Motorcycles!

So my first love that comes before my truck is my motorcycle (sorry guys). I couldn't find a motorcycle thread, so I figured I'd start one. I'm a member over at r6-forum.com and a huge participant there. This is actually bad that I found this forum. Now ALL my time is being wasted on the net LOL. Anyhow, here is a few pics of mine...only two with the Taco. Sportbikes and cruisers welcome!

2008 Yamaha YZF-R6

She's In a full carbon fiber transition right now. Waiting on the rest of the parts to get to me.




All naked waiting on fairings at deals gap!




Track days






The Tacoma!




Stock




Others


So you might be able to tell, but I'm completely obsessed about my bike! I know there has to be others out there who are into them...

There actually is another thread here with bikes.

I posted this bike in the other thread, but I'll show a few more pictures here.

1971 Yamaha RT1-B 360, around 6,500 miles, all paint is original except the fenders. This is one of 8 bikes I own and probably my favorite!

Haha... i know, i know. I liked my SV a lot, but when it came time to get a new bike, I just felt like I'd be somewhat disappointed with another SV (the brakes and shocks left something to be desired). I feel much more confident on the gixxer for some reason... I think it's the weight more forward on the bike... though I am going to have to learn how to support my weight with my knees instead of my wrists!

Oh yeah for sure. Get some stomp grip. It makes a world of difference. And be careful on that thing. It's got tons more power and much more sensitive coming out of corners on the throttle.

Thank you! I really like this bike and it's a YAMAHA!

Unfortunately this bike does not see to much dirt these days, I have a DRZ400 as well as an XT250 that I use when I go off road. I live in a pretty small town and you should see when I drive the RT1 around, it's definately not a quiet bike as the baffle was removed years ago and I have yet been able to find another, parts are getting pretty hard to find on these bikes.

Here is a picture of my DRZ, you can kind of see my brother in laws Husqvarna.


And here's my 83 XT250, it now sports a new seat cover and tires since the picture was taken.

Mine was stolen one year ago (cant believe I have managed to go this long without it), by someone that busted in my front door, and took it out of the garage.



I miss riding.

You have quite an impressive collection. I'm torn between a 4 wheeler or a dirt bike right now. Ive been on tons of wheelers, but the dirt bike's are new to me...

I'll be in your same shoes one day. I'm thinking of retiring to a speed triple when I get the crotch rocket out of my blood.
