Only some analogs ..i'm not much of a photographer.I had some great pictures of my CBR's and VTR's but lost them on a harddrive crash.
Thinking about scanning my old ones one day.... smile.gif

The weirdest anekdote in all those years (besides some nasty accidents) was crashing into an owl at night that flew straight to my headlight...it was a massive blow !
My bike and myself were completely covered in blood...my friends reckoned i slayered somebody laugh.gif


Here's a pic of my winter bike tongue.gif ...115000km on the clock

For the winter? Isn't it cold to drive it around in winter time (or slippery)?

I really love the BMW, huge amounts of cash though, maybe one day, a few years perhaps, I`ve only just got the Honda this year so I ought to get some fun out of that first smile.gif

I did do away with a car towards the end of last year and bought a winter hack, a Suzuki SV650S, but yea, we had probably the worst winter for a long time, my wife ended up taking me to work a lot of the time due to snow and ice & I caved the early part of this year and sold the SV and bought a car again and gone back to being a fair weather rider only rolleyes.gif the rain I dont mind, the clothing is good enough to keep you dry, but it was the really cold wet days that did me in the end sad.gif

nice bike! smile.gif

I like the BMW bikes in general, they are pretty pricey but I`m guessing you get what you pay for smile.gif

It`ll be a while before I change the Honda but I`m aspiring to the BMW next.

Gab & Adrian, yea, totally understand, as like others here I`m sure, I`ve had one quite bad accident on a bike which did actually put me off riding for nearly 16 years, I was incredibly lucky to get up and walk away with just bruising but the bug to get another bike never went away, I actually only started riding again just over two years ago, now I`m totally hooked again!! biggrin.gif

1+. I had one once, for about a year. The thing about them, is that you are at the mercy of people doing foolish things on the road, you are totally vulnerable to them, and there is nothing you can do to defend yourself. People do a lot of stupid things on the road.

Now I used to ride a bicycle a lot, 30-40 mile rides for fun, on state highways a great deal. But you can ride safely on a bicycle, you can protect yourself in all situations really if you know what you are doing. You can't protect yourself on a motorcycle from some old lady coming to a stop at a stop sign, and then proceeding to plow into you as you pass by (as once happened to me in a car).

I haven't ridden one before, but a friend of ours has a 1000 hp bike, much like the white one Chris Evans shared. It's black though. He revved it up for me and my brother. He let us sit on it as though we were driving it, kickstand down. There's no feathering the throttle. laugh.gif He said he's got it up to about 175 mph (282 kph), but didn't want to go any faster because the front end felt a little loose. ohmy.gif

I don't think I'll ever get into bikes or motorcycles. I'm not a risk taker. I've heard of so many accidents on them. Yes, I know the car has a potential to crash too. But...just saying, if you hit gravel on a turn.........

I love em. Yeah, you've got to be careful for sure.
Here's a picture of my old bike. I sold it a couple of years ago after 17000 miles of pure freedom cool.gif . I mostly rode for recreation and not transportation so I guess I couldn't justify having it around anymore. Maybe someday I'll get another.
