* * * Showoff your MOTORCYCLES * * *

I think it would be interesting to see what peeps on SBF are riding on/offroad. Post up pics of your sportbikes, dirtbikes, cruisers, choppers, cafe racers, street fighters, touring bikes...hell even quads and trikes. Let's seem 'em!

Here's my old K3 CBR-600RR w/tons of mods:


Here's my old K6 GSX-R600 all stock just debadged w/the original white/silver plastics:


Later when I changed it to black/gunmetal plastics w/some mods:

16 Gnu Swallow Tail Carver . 16 NS West . 15 NS Snowtrooper BIA
16 Burton Genesis X . 15 Now Drive
16 Flow Talon . 14 Flow Hylite

Beautiful Sportster! I saw one the other night... here is the story.

Quote:
I raced a Harley the other night, and after some really hard riding I finally managed to pass the guy. I was riding on one of those really, really, twisting sections of down hill roads with no straight sections to speak of and where most of the curves have warning signs that say "20 MPH".

I knew if I was going to pass one of those monsters with those big-cubic-inch motors, it would have to be a place like this where handling and rider skill are more important than horsepower alone.

I saw the guy up ahead as I exited one of the turns and knew I could catch him, but it wouldn't be easy. I concentrated on my braking and cornering. Three corners later, I was on his fender. Catching him was one thing; passing him would prove to be another.

Two corners later, I pulled up next to him as we sailed down the road. I think he was shocked to see me next to him, as I nearly got by him before he could recover. Next corner, same thing. I'd manage to pull up next to him as we started to enter the corners but when we came out he'd get on the throttle and outpower me. His horsepower was almost too much to overcome, but this only made me more determined than ever.

My only hope was to outbrake him. I held off squeezing the lever until the last instant. I kept my nerve while he lost his. In an instant, I was by him. Corner after corner, I could hear the roar of his engine as he struggled to keep up.

But now I was in the lead, and he would no longer hold me back. I stretched out my lead and by the time we reached the bottom of the road, he was more than a full corner behind. I could no longer see him in my rear-view mirror.

Once the road did straighten out, it seemed like it took miles before he passed me, but it was probably just a few hundred yards. I was no match for that kind of horsepower, but it was done. In the tightest section of road, where bravery and skill count for more than horsepower and deep pockets, I had passed him. Though it was not easy, I had won the race to the bottom of the road.

I will always remember that moment. I don't think I've ever pedaled so hard in my life. And some of the credit must go to Raleigh, as well. They really make a great bicycle.
