    What up, I have been hoovering around this place for awhile and decided to join and since bikes have been a part of my life I thought this would have been a good place to start. Here's my bike i'm building atm a 82 XJ650 bobber.

    on a side note,theres a womens make up store (!!!!!!!) here in toronto that has a 34 Indian in it as decoration,i almost crapped my pants in disgust at the waste (i mean whats the freaking point? although it did lure me in with my gf) i just stared at it for about 10 minutes and actually thought about jumping on it and just popping a wheelie out of that store.

    2 strokes!

    My brother just got an RZ350 except it's yellow/black with the Spec II fairing and Toomeys so now I'm jealous of both him and you. The next clean one I find for sale is going to be mine. He also just restored a Geneva Green RD400.

    The Kawi is crazy nice! Scary quick bikes. I got on the RZ and at 6k it feels like it might lift off, like fly or something. lol. Gotta have some respect for those bikes. Very impressed!

    Love the 2 strokes. Nothing like them. The RZ was really fun. It ended up giving me serious carpal tunnel issues due to the very low clip ons and the vibration. I sold it, when I should have installed different bars and grips. It was very quick and actually more exciting to ride than its much quicker cousin, the V-Max I also pictured. There is serious pucker when you dive into a corner with no engine braking, then lift the front on the way out when the bike hits the pipe. From 6 to 9 grand it was hold on tight and shift as fast as you could. [​IMG]

    The Kwacker has been a project. I have only ridden it once. It has been so hot and I have been so busy that I have not had enough time to get it totally sorted. It is like a rattlesnake though....very quick and it will bite you.

    The mighty H2. This one has chambers, obviously...no engine mods that I can tell, aside from pods. It is quite vociferous. [​IMG]
