Re: Songs that stir you emotionally.

today i played some releases by female artists, or with female vocalists (The Braids - Lemonade, is one song title that sticks in my head, and a couple tunes by First Aid Kit were great examples of modern music), but then I threw on some classic blues and remembered how the simple layers of fun lyri...

Re: A or B: Pick one!

Would you rather be caught by surprise by a... Hurricane or Tornado Let's see... Hurricane's were the original series (1987) CBR600 and later CBR1000... until Honda pulled the Hurricane name. It was rather stylish and interesting that they did that full-coverage bodywork on those CBRs rather than t...

Re: Hello from Nikki <3

The FZ6 looks pretty good with the stone building in the background, and the desaturated colour to bring out the subdued blue works well. Im sure the girls will come scooting through the forum to chat you up about your yami, if they arent out riding, catching some fun in the sun or snooping in other...

Re: 2012 Indian Chief Vintage - Cool Wall Vote: Uncool

i missed this vote, but love the way it became a love/hate thing so easily for a variety of reasons. i dont think "cool" has that much problem with the retail price tag :-) I think this bike is just a continuation of the previous Indian owners products. I took a look at them whe I was in Calgary, an...

Re: This Week: 2011 BMW K1300R - VOTE NOW

this is the ugliest bike i have seen in a long time. needs clothes badly. a fairing could hide some ugliness, but it's sooooo long. technically a nice front suspension design though, but hideously ugly to the eyes. i'll take a hayabusa over this and that is saying a lot, since a crashed hayabusa usu...

Re: 2012 Harley-Davidson FLD Dyna Switchback - VOTED: COOL

strangely enough i decided to read the press release... I found it funny that at 700+ lbs it is "the lightest tourer in it's class" and still "94lbs lighter than a Road King" hardy har har... that "cool" sure comes with calories. oh, and it has footboards, so i guess they are trying to nail down the...

Re: Danny MacAskill - What can you say!!!!!

I could say he's been practicing quite a lot :) and yeah, it's completely SICK how skilled he is on that bike. INTENSE. I love freestyle stuff, and the "Way Back Home" vid is completely awesome. I was surprised that a few tricks (very few) he uses some man-made ramps. But sometimes they want a certa...

Re: if you had a million dollars

hmmmm... a fun little cost-analysis :D To hit that real budget i know J.M.'s remains would be easily forgotten, and perhaps Garfunkel paints, so toss the Picasso idea, and although Paul Simon can command 2,000,000 i think Garfunkel has done little more than Slip Slide Away Great song!

Having read that Claudio Castiglioni has just passed away (a real legend with the rebirth of Italian marques) also explains the styling of the Husky, having been acquired by his Italian conglomerate of bike manufacturers.
