At the thought of a cape (or a red scarf), the idea of the male population doing itself in and world domination fill Alex's head!!!!

No the next one should be for women though the only person that comes to mind would be Zena and I don't think there would be much protectoin in that. :laughing: :laughing:

Hey, I just got out the British bike restoration business or I probably had the best bike for you, a Tourist Trophy 500cc Triumph. I got of the business because I had gotten tired of all the problems of bad suppliers, worse collectors and cut throat business practices. However, I would say to do now...

Only thing impressive to me honestly in that video is his slow speed rolling burnouts. Gett some momentum, not a lot or the bike may high side. Shift your weight to the insde peg, grab the front brake an twist the loud switch sharply. If you bring enough torque into the slide, (not HP) the rear whe...

Okay, guys, me too but with the normal number of sidehacks, I knew it wasn't.

I own most of one if it counts but I've never rode it. How many side hacks are there on this forum? I'm real curious to know. :)

I go for looks, and then sound, my pipes are the most expensive you can buy, they come with removable baffles, which gives it a deep roar, I would not have been able to afford them, but the dealer said he would put them on for just a bit extra if I bought the B King, I think they look miles better ...

i think i'd die laughing if i actually saw someone wearing that on their bike. Oh, I don't know. Spmething like this came up last week about leather jackets made to look like muscle suits.

I think fit is important, but subjectve. If you like the bike and it feels good to you, it does not really matter if someone else thinks it is too big for you or not. If you can ride it safely, stop it safely feel the fit is right for them I say go for it. I have seen 10 to 12 year olds throw aroun...

Hi Tennif, The bike currently has a 2 into 1 pipe which I'm not crazy about (both the sound & look). I'll probably get slip-ons in about 4 to 6 months, but wanted to remove the baffles in the meantime. I'm not very mechanically inclined so I'll be using a local bike mechanic to do both for me. IMHO...
