Re: THIS WEEK: 2017 Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer - VOTE TODAY

I think they are cool, whether they fit the definition of a scrambler ( which is not from the English for "mix" but the English for "move quickly if ungracefully to get some where or avoid something" ) or the definition of a cafe racer. ( Really? they used to race from one cafe to another? hmmm, kid...

Re: Tourist Trophy 2017

Best to plan your trip some years ahead of time as the accommodations are often booked that far in advance. Unless you want to camp. Then a year ahead is usually enough. You can take your bike and you can ride the race track when the racing is not in progress but be aware that most of the fatalities...

Re: THIS WEEK: 2018 Suzuki V-Strom 1000XT - VOTE NOW

Not my thing, but a cool looking machine, and a model that has done well for the company for many years. A bit too much going on visually for my tastes. Would be nice to know how heavy it is to compare it to my ST 1300. I'm sure it's lighter though. I haven't had a dirt bike or enduro since I was 20...

:cowboy: If it's a 500 it was the bomb in 1971. What's amazing is how much room is left in the frame compared to todays bikes. And it's a triple. Have an awesome birthday Mike.

Re: THIS WEEK: 2017 Ural Ambassador - VOTE NOW

Awesome for:
1. They are only making 25 of them, a real collector's item
2. A spare freakin' tire, on a freakin' motorcycle.
3. The whole "go anywhere" ethos these bikes inspire. Have you seen those crazy Russians crossing rivers on these things?

Will have to try riding one sometime.

Re: Identify a Bike

Can't help with a guess much beyond trellis = Ducati but one thing I have learned is that motorcycle owners love to talk about their bikes, especially exotic looking ones. I would just go knock on the door and ask, but then I live in Canada where most people don't even lock their doors....at least w...

Mike! the only missing is the MSRP! That would make everybody groan for missing the good old days. I remember very fondly the big brother of this machine, the Nighthawk 450 I had that was bulletproof. Like my ST now it just ran and ran and ran. only thing I did was change the oil and tires.

Fortunately, most of us can tell the difference between a fictional story and factual engineering. If you look at the votes you will see that not everyone has voted to fail it. I voted cool for the reasons you mentioned. But I don't think it is cool to trash others for their viewpoints. Sorry we "al...

Re: This Week: 2017 BMW VISION NEXT 100 - VOTE NOW

Also, I think it's a bit irresponsible for BMW to promote (even as a concept) riding gear that doesn't have any safety features, as if this is an ideal that we should be reaching toward. Anyone who's ever been hit by something tiny (a small rock, a bird, a bug, a branch?) knows that riding gear doe...

Re: Discussion: Evolution or Extinction? End of the Cruiser and Sportbike

I am part of the demographic that lived through the evolution of these styles and myself wound up on a sport tourer. My new bike this year is a 2012 Victory Vision. It's the V-twin thing. But the comfort was important because I plan to ride long distance on it. I may go back to a sport tourer some d...
