This photo was taken in 1985 the only one not around anymore is the highrider.
I was also eyeballing this BMW Pure, but it was almost 3000 more clams.
I like bmws, but I think the Ducati looks more fun.
Ok, my bike was replaced on my post with this lovely RSV (not mine) and my bike "Bella" was insterted to someone else's post.
Might be time to head on down the road
First bike 1970 Yamaha 250 twin, second bike (not pictured) 2005 Harley Softail Deluxe, current bike 2010 Street Glide.
That Yammy reminds me of my old 400, glorious bike really.
Believe it or not, it's a '98.
My Magna was an '82 if I remeber correctly. First year for that bike. Finally got rid of it earlier this year and got the Boulevard.
Here’s an older picture of my Triumph Sprint.
Currently has a fuel leak I’ve been too busy (or lazy) to fix, so I didn’t ride at all this summer. We have snow on the ground now, so I’m sure I won’t be working on it any time soon.
1968 Shriner shovel head, stripped down a bit, but I have all the boxes, windshield, etc for it.
When I bought my 1985 GSXR back in 86, shortly after my best friend picked up an 83 RZ350. I think it was the first year we got them. It wasn’t a challenge to the GSXR power wise but he could absolutely loose me in the corners due to superior riding skillz and a super flickable bike.
Here’s our bikes at the beach in about June of 1986
The second that I saw it I immediately scanned over to your info, I was guessing you were in Canada judging by the paint schemes, I was right!
And the future? Eerh... at a cool £90,000.
My restmod 85 Suzuki 7/11 track bike
Well that’ll put a smile on your face at 6am on a Sunday morning! At least it did for me. That’s damn cool!
Lots of nice bits on that bike. Nice rear sets and is that an R1 shock?
All of my GSXR’s are 750’s but... I’ve got a wiseco 907 kit on a shelf that could go into my 1985 and the 89 750RR/RK has a wiseco 955 kit. The 89 750RR/RK litterally came to me in boxes and I’ve never had it fired up. I’ve got to build a new shop before I can get on that one.
That is the exact Scrambler I almost bought before my Indian Scout. Such a great bike, power to weight ratio is like perfect. Have you ridden it yet? I love the BMW R9T but the Duc Scrambler fits me way better. Love that bike. Congrats!!!
No, I've not yet even swung a leg over one. This one was marked down $3000 below list and close enough from home to go fetch .
Price/location= no brainer.
I do hope I made a good decision but on paper every spec and demention are perfect for my size and needs.
I nearly never go on long jauts, just mountian road ripping.
The Beemer is more sophisticated but with a tag that represents that and I just don't ride for hours and hours or commute.
And yes this thread caused it!
Cool ebb soul, good deal. That thing is a STEAL for 7 grand brand new. It is SO subjective but I can tell you I LOVE the Scrambler. I am not tall but it fit me really well, as I was able to tip toe it my inseam is about 28". It is such a killer all around bike. It's not crazy powerful but the power to weight ratio is really great. Besides my Scout (Which I love as well) my absolute favorite bike was my Honda Hawk GT.... and that bike was all about the handling and power to weight ratio, and the Scrambler is the one modern bike I have ridden that gives me that same... satisfaction. Plus it looks fantastic. The one I almost bought had the Termi pipe and remap. It sounded sick, I am still sad I did not buy that bike... that would have been my next purchase if I didn't find such a great deal on my Scout.
There's finally going to be a minnesota product that will give you the scrambler's riding position and hopefully some of it's handling ability. I'm sure it'll be heavier, but I'm very excited to see polaris finally make a non-cruiser.
For sure, that FTR1200 is awesome! The seat is too high for me though. I can ride tall bikes but it gets old fast having to lean to one side at stops. I can tell you, that VTwin that Polaris has built for the Indian is my favorite engine I have ever rev'ed... lol.
If I was going to buy a new Indian I'd probably do the Bobber, although I really do love my standard Scout. Honestly I wasn't lying when I said I am jealous of Leno... if I could I'd have a garage FULL OF 100 DIFFERENT BIKES... lol. So many great bikes out there right now.
