Hi all!

Just wanted to know if there are any bikers here at GMC so we might share yet another passion? wink.gif

A few weeks ago I had to finally put my new "bella" into her winter quarters - miss her already!
Besides my family and playing guitar this is my third love.

I really love to cruise through the hills outside of Vienna or even take a longer route through the picturesque landscapes of the Wachau (some 80km from where I live)

I have included a photo of my bike (YES it´s new! biggrin.gif) - come on: I wanna see your cool bikes as well!

Really looking forward to it!

Cheers
Berglmir

PS. One of the most sarcastic but very funny (at least for me) signature I have read in a bike forum was:
"Pro CO2 - I don´t need Winter!" laugh.gif

I was riding bikes since being two years old, strapped to the back of my father^^
I love it, I have a liscense but no money to afford a bike -.-

Nice ride Berglmir but it would be too small for me, I look like an idiot on smaller bikes!

I love bikes. I played on many biker shows. That's a true RnR feeling smile.gif Summer is always great for bikers.

I used to ride one of these (same saddle and wheels, but different pedals). I hated winter, too. It cost almost as much as a motorcycle.

I also have an RF 600 which is just being transformed as it had a nasty meeting with some diesel and I've had to ditch all the original bodywork!

I was sure that I will find some bikers on a guitar forum! biggrin.gif
Coool rides everyone!

@Zakk: I don´t think you would look stupid on the bike (although it IS very "slim") - it´s "narrow" but not small and it´s one of the most powerfull naked bikes on the street atm.
@ Chris: Nice one! Where exactly on your bike is this cool paintbrush work? On the fist photo I can´t seem to find any traced of it.
@ purple hayes: I can but guess what these high-tech bicycles cost - but they sure are head-turners
@ Sensible Jones: I love the pic of your bike and your GMC forum name - they "fit" perfectly laugh.gif

But come on - there must be more bikes out there: put them on display and let´s hope winter ends early this year!! wink.gif

Another interessting topic: Emir said he has been playing often at bike shows and that they connect quite good with RnR.
Do you think there are certain bike types that fit certain music styles better than others. Something like this:

Metal: Superbike
Hard Rock/Alternative Rock: Naked Bike
RnR/Blues: Chopper

Hmmm what would an Enduro or even a real MotoCross Bike be? Oh and ther are Cruisers out there as well (that´ll be Pop/Easy Listenig for me) laugh.gif
Or maybe you even have special bike models and connection to songs in your mind? For me it´s like everytime I see my bike I hear Puff Daddy & Jimmy Page´s "Come with me" or Rammstein´s "Mein Herz brennt".

Would love to know your musical connection to bikes.

It's strange, but after seeing the video for the theme from 'Charlies Angels' every time I see a Yellow Ducati I think of Beyonce!!!

I'd forgotten how much that bike + upgrades had cost, so I tracked down the bike & parts online. I must have been temporarily insane to spend that much. huh.gif

There is nothing quite like a high tech (or at least close) bicycle though. I had to use my spare bike (3 gears, heavy as an elephant and what not) to ride to work one day. It's not really that long, 13 km, but it felt like I was getting nowhere compared to my regular bicycle.

Yeah i wanted to start such an thread too biggrin.gif I love to ride my bike and Berglmir congratulation to this nice Ducati Streetfighter. In my opinion it's the first Streetfighter bike after the Kawasaki Z 750 and Z1000 who really catches the feeling of a fighter.

so here is my bike:
