That photo makes me sad and I'm not even a fan of Buell's motorcycles.

Also check out the Japanese shop, Ritmo Sereno for some of the nicest Guzzi specials:

999 with RADD Ducati fairing. Gives bike a completely different look. An improved one I might add.

Terblanche never seemed to get a design right. I really hate all of them.

Re: The Cafe/2Stroke/Single/Twin/Brit/Euro/Cool Bike Pic Thread

I've always had a soft spot for cafe' racers. Here's a few pics of when I went to Beaver Run for the WERA races last August with some vintage racer guys...



A beautiful modified TZR250 by Don Henry. Go to http://www.northamericantwostrokes.com for lots of bikes like this!




A herd of GPz's owned by Sam Williams.




Rich Oldakowski's Yamaha stable.



#49 is a throw together by Steve Baker that gives me flashbacks because of the Kerker sticker. The #5 bike is run by Tommy D'Ettorre of Checker Flag Cycle in Upstate NY. (He's the guy who helped me to dial in my suspension.) His bike is by far the ugliest and dirtiest bike in his class (it shoots oil all over anyone to his left on the starting line... lol) but he's a master mechanic and rider and just clinched the 2009 WERA 2-Stroke championship.


These guys are a total bunch of characters... many of whom are repeat champions in their class. When you watch these old timers all geared up on the track you wouldn't know their age the way they throw these bikes into the turns. Anyway, it was a great hang and loved talking with them about their bikes. More information about WERA and these riders can be found on the official WERA website: http://www.wera.com/
