Default Re: Let's Hear It

I'd start with an RC 51 and make the following changes:



-Front Radiator (does anybody know where to get one from? HRC doensn't list the RC anymore)

-Sato low mounts

-Real pillion seat

-bigger tank

-front end restyle

-higher bars

-slightly lower pegs



I love the sound of the RC; gear driven cam whine, and thunder from the exhuast. Hooah...

You're probably right. I still don't carry a single action anything (except a blackhawk with the transfer bar) with one up the pipe. Call it a foible if you will.

You are absolutely right. Still, any time I see a Grizzly I'm still going to run like hell.



Same thing goes with Moose.

3 bikes its all I ask - Ducati monster, BMW R1200GS, and Aprilia Futura.

Required ingredients: Must be fun to ride, must have 2 cylinders (or less), must look interesting. I want motorcycles not the newest supersport-chrome-billet-infested fashion statement. If I wanted to make a fashion stament I'd shave my head and get my nipples pierced.

A local BMW repair/restorer in Ogden, Ut said that the K1200GT is virtually the same as a K1200RS with boxes, different handlebars and windshield. One can get a used K1200RS for substantially less $ and with a couple of mods have the same thing.

Easy: SV750



Make three versions; sport bike, naked, scrambler/dirttracker/motard. For the sport version, take the GSXR and put the 750 twin in there. Naked: style something like the new speed triple/Buell, stay far from 919/599 standard look. Dirt tracker: a cross between a XR750 and a super motard. Done. If I could make this even weirder, make the engine air cooled.
