    THis is the current bike. My first street bike was a Ducati 749s. After 3 years of riding, the ownership passed to the Florida Department of Highway Patrol .


    Just to be clear this is a MV Agusta 1078 312RR, named Ruby. It gets the same gas mileage as my Jeep.

    Helmet was custom sprayed to match the silver of the bike.


    I'm about to pickup a Duc 999s.

    Be careful, I've heard that bike can travel through time.

    I had a Ninja and Gixer in my early 20's. Lot's of fun, but watch out for those distracted drivers. They wander right into your lane.

    I've slowed down now, and enjoy the scenery on my Vaquero.

    Safe riding, Bud.
    Cheers

    THat's the benefit of driving in Florida. Everywhere else it's that "One distracted driver" that will get you. Here it is every driver that wants to kill you.

    My boss just picked up a mint mv750 a week or so ago. Thing still has original chain and sprockets Really cool. He also has a Laverda Jota immaculately restored, and a Triumph Thruxton.

    I was eyeballing a GSXR-1000 K5 that had 4500 miles on it, technically, if it wasn't 14 years old, that thing still required its first oilchange and rear tire

    ...alas, it sold

    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, sweat and the occasional witty comment

    Re: Show Us Your Bike(s)

    Here's one that I've been building up for about a year. It's a flat track style bike based on a little known 80's Yamaha called the TR1. The TR1 was a failure as a touring bike ( I don't know why ) but Yamaha gave the engine shaft drive and turned it into the phenomenally successful but stupid looking Virago.

    There's still a lot of work to do on this bike. I don't think there is any part that I haven't modified or built from scratch. I'm still not sure about the tank, I think it's a bit too big...
    But it'll be a lot of fun when I finish. The bike weighs very little for a 1000cc V-twin and I'm hoping for about 70bhp from the engine mods.52935484_2142074682577951_3827255613847502848_o.jpg

    I used to own the XV920 version of these in the mid '80's. Kinda under performed on the highway... needed four valves per cylinder instead of two, but might work on the dirt track.

    These early Viragos also all had a starter problem... the starter would spin like crazy and not engage... you needed to install new springs and clips:

    I eventually dumped mine and bought a big Japanese four... a Suzuki GS1100 which could be bored out to 1240 CC's with higher compression and went like stink.

    Heavy as a pig though and kinda wallowed in the corners... had to be very careful with the throttle.

    Luckily the TR1 has the upgraded starter mechanism fitted as standard, even though the US market bikes didn't get it for years. Weird...
    The starting system is a right dogs breakfast anyway - the starter solenoid is interchangeable with one from a Suzuki SJ410 jeep

    There was a BoTT TR1 racebike that used Hossack style girder forks, a minimal frame and an engine with Honda XBR500 cylinders and four valve radial heads grafted on it somehow. I think it was just too radical to be successful.

    I think my next project has jumped the queue in front of the TR1 - it's a Yam 1600 Wildstar ( Silverado ? ) which was cheap because it has a very sick engine. I'm going to get that running quickly and then remove all the chrome junk that makes those poor bikes look like a two wheeled Wurlitzer organ. Make it like an old school Harley chopper, except reliable
