My helmet is the new Arai Whicker. Woven grasses will be replacing carbon fiber in most industrial applications shortly. Ducati is working on a frame of woven wheat and rye grasses for the 2015 season.
I go to this rally every year. On the second day there is a technical trials course. It's always laid out on a steep slope and is a complex course with lots of off camber hill, a jump, lots of tight turns and stuff. Most people run the course on BMW GS bikes or KTM adventure bikes. Some on real dirt bikes.
Needless to say the SV is pretty much one of the stupidest bikes to run the course on. It has an awful turning radius and turns on a steep grass hill are not exactly a forte.
None the less I do this every year since I get a kick out of knocking over cones and jumping a street bike.
I have been noticing a lot of threads with very cool pictures and links and in conversing with some other frequent posters thought maybe we could try to roll some of the best content up into one place. I look here and on the internet, as well as tv, in printed media and at bike shows and all...
The original Motorcycle Picture Game was lots of fun but I think it's time for a reboot, so let's set the rules straight from the beginning and go get some pictures.
To make this game agile and keep things moving, we will keep not one but two tags going at the same time.
An SV really should have been my first motorcycle. Suffice it to say, the brand new '99 Buell Cyclone I bought instead was not the best choice.
In other words, I've wanted an SV650 for over a decade.
At the end of last month, I was offered a '99 with 34k miles in trade for a MacBook Air...
Hi, I just thought I'd get some thoughts on my worries about having my bike stolen.
I live in London, UK and from stuff like this it looks like if a bike isn't chained to something all the time, it will disappear: 15,000 mopeds and motorbikes stolen in a year It's supposedly a lot less now...
