    Hello and welcome.

    I've gone through the motoring posts and they seem pretty sparse when it came to Motorcycles. So I'm making this thread where us bikers can ask questions on learning to ride, post pictures of their bikes and/or adventures, give advice and perhaps talk about decent gear.

    As I've opened I'll take the first step.

    I ride a 2018 Triumph Street Scrambler. 900cc with a boat load of torque in the bottom end. Upgraded it with engine dresser bars, new mirrors, new header pipes with no catalytic converter so she sounds like the Queen of England releasing the fart she's stored for 100 years. Vance and hines pipe, headlight grill and upgraded turn signals coming.

    Here she is without some of those upgrades (currently tucked up in the garage for winter):



    Now lets see what you guys have, and if any one has any questions, fire away, that's what this is here for!

    That gsxr is a beast. Nice work keeping it clean.

    Pro tip: ACF - 50 is great to apply to your bike to keep corrosion at bay and make dirt easy to wash off. They use it on aircraft to keep them protected.

    My dad is adamant about cleaning the bikes after every ride haha. Dirtbikes, streetbikes, doesn't matter. If we take them out for anything longer than a trip to work, then they need to be cleaned. Ride together, clean together haha

    I’m from the uk and have the same problem. 
    Fortunately for me I also suffer from old are better than new syndrome.

    I would like to invite you to share my disease as well as my love of all things that move disease.


    It is a serious illness that I have no intention of doing anything about.
    EVER

    Pictures another time but I'm a technician for Kawi, Suzuki, Honda, BRP, Polaris and soon Yamaha. I got Harley certified in school. I can try and answer questions if possible

    I ride a 2015 Yamaha FZ07, looped it back in October. Currently getting it fixed up, also need to address a fatal front suspension flaw on the FZ07s
