    2 wheels better

    New place, new thread.
    A bit of a roll all for those with vehicles with two wheels and a motor.
    Those with 4, 3!? or somtething else can do their own thread.

    So me:
    Ducati Diavel
    A seriously black cruiser in a very modern looking style.
    Throw in a 1200cc twin engine from a sportsbike and it's got the GO to backup the looks.
    And the widest rear tyre on a volume bike.

    I love the low seat (I'm duck legged), ride position is good for mixed riding.
    First bike I've had with full electronics for ABS, traction control and even cruise control.
    It tours, scratches, commutes and cruises.

    I got rid of the Fireblade a few months ago. Wasn't using it much. Gave it to a mate who is keen rider but been bike-less a few years as he has been working hard on getting his business going. He is a way better rider than me, so the bike might actually get ridden as it should!

    Oh hey, this place is back! Same old bikes for me. Here's me and the Ninja on a trip to Idaho. Same CX500, now it's been lowered a couple inches, new superbike bars, and just a touch louder too

    1978 Suzuki GS550, which finally broke 14,000 miles last year. Many things should be replaced due to old age, and it has a worse power-to-weight ratio than my car.

    My Italian Stallion.

    2001 Ducati Monster 900.

    I am eventually going to get the story wrote up on how I purchased it all and everything. Probably in time for the 1 year anniversary of the purchase.


    I'll also get more files uploaded after I apply for this job...

    I put that phrase into Google Translate and even they don't understand what you're saying.
