Re: Think I might just be bikeless this year

Not worried, too much biker blood in Ceemes, wait a little while and we will have posts about how exited he is to get his new bike.

Re: I want to motorcycle ...

What is it with this ABS thing, do you think it will make you a better rider. I don't think so. Do you think it will make you safer, I don't think so. There is no substitute for experience and training. ABS will not stop you quicker, but it may just make you believe you can by short cutting proper t...

Re: This week: 2014 Yamaha FZ-09: Vote Today

This bike does speak to me, although I usually reserve comment until I ride them, I give this an awesome. I just get that feeling that this is going to have loads and loads of low down grunt from that triple with lots of flick-ability and a slick box that is just going to make the ovaries tingle. A ...

Re: 2013 BMW R1200R - Coolness Factor = 82.7%

Brilliant to see it at no 2, (I must have a little common sense to own one, whoo hoo). The thing with this bike is that it is a great all rounder, and while I hear you about the price, I based my decision partially on longevity. My GS is now 6 years old 85 000 plus KM and other than a new clutch it ...

Re: This week: 2013 BMW R1200R: Vote Today

Always had an inkling I would get one of these, so when the time came for a shop around last year, I did the homework, did the rounds and still ended up coming back to this bike. Sure you can nitpick, until you ride one that is, then everything else is forgiven. I have been a GS fan for a long time,...

Shriker has hit the nail(partially) on the head. The part he missed out is that for many people the HD's have satisfied their particular need. In that respect they are successful.

Re: My Moto Guzzi V7. Does it smell like pizza or is it just

So I've narrowed my bike down to a name after all these months. Usually bikes are quite easy to name for me, but this one has so much character, personality and style it turned out to be quite the challenge! But I think I have a name for it, I'll try it on for a bit and see. Tesoro (meaning Treasur...

Re: This week: 2013 Triumph Thruxton: Vote Today

I voted cool because I am scared of Ceemes I like bikes that had a definite purpose when built and a market mapped out, this bike ticks both those boxes and falls in nicely with Triumphs bosses mind tricks. That is why it is cool. People will buy these and they will be a round for years, because for...
