I absolutely love bikes, even more than Alfas. Here's what I have had to date:

2000 BMW R1200C Montana
1967 BMW R50/2
1966 BMW R69S
1990 BMW K75RS Conversion
1971 BMW R75/5
1996 BMW K1100RS Special Edition
1972 BMW R75/5
1978 BMW R100S
1977 BMW R100S
2001 BMW R1200C Phoenix
1999 Honda Valkyrie

I now have the ultimate cruiser, the Honda Valkyrie , and my restored '66 BMW R69S .

Check out this link to see the Nickel Trick!!!!!!

It showcases Honda's smooth flat 6 engine. Ask a Harley guy to try this!!! I also, now have 6 into 6 drag pipes installed. All the Harley guys are awed by the sound. It sounds like a top fuel dragster....totally awesome.

A 1980 Yamaha XS650, a little old but no computer. Leaves little spots here and there on the floor and a weak electrical system.

Cheerz there Jay. She's a bit bit tatty these days but still very strong in the engine depot. Mods include Nicholls flywheel, Carillo rods, 944 bore kit, Vee two cams, ported heads, 41mm Keihin flat slides, Akrapovic exhaust, Nology coils and plug wires, and a pair of Marvic 3 spokes rims. Its number 353 of 650 made in 92. I'll never part with it.

Some great bikes guys!!

I've only had a few, first was a 1980 Honda CT125, learned to ride on that.
Not my actual bike:


Next along was a Honda VT250FII F Integra Special Edition, very nice 250 Vtwin to cruise around on, till the engine failed...
Also not my particular bike, I had aftermarket pipes.


Last, and my favourite, which I miss greatly, was the Honda CB900F1 Bol`Dor, 1979.
Late model 3 spoke wheels, monoshock rear conversion, longer wheelbase than stock, taller gearing too, hotter cams, aftermarket header and pipe, race bars, Nissan Skyline headlights, Kawasaki instruments. Was a weekend racer to begin with, and needed some lights and instruments for road reg. And I want it back!! Was sold a few years back...you know, priorities and all.


this is a stocker:

Bol'd'or

Those 900's were a fast machine! A mate of mine had one back in the day. Nothing in town [car or bike] would even come close. 215 km's p/hour. Thats not too shabby for a 1979. Spent heaps of time on the pillion seat hanging on for dear life! Specially when we were trying too blow off the copas. Ahh the good old days!!

Talking 'bout bikes, theres a good film on at the mo "Worlds fasest Indian". Sounds like its a pretty good flick. Bert Munro was an old chap from Invercargill. A town 4 hours south of where I am, and the worlds southern most city. Anyway Bert Munro had a 1926 Indian Scout which he developed over 40 odd years into a world speed record breaker. Read a bit about him and this guy was an absolute legend. These old guys I used to race against also told me a few storys about him like he 'd forge his own pistons out of Caterpiller dozer conrods! And when he was at Bonneville the bike was having trouble with excessive wheelspin at 160 mph! Pretty good for a 1926 bike...
Some of the film was shot here in my home town 'Timaru". Cant wait to check it out.

I rode a R100RT BMW for 113,00 miles but I sold it and when friends asked why ? I alway tell them that when I shut the lights out in the garage and I listened real good, I could hear the BMW fighting with the Alfa Romeos, so I got mad and threw the BMW out and got a MotoGuzzi to ride.
