    I'd also say this thread needs more pictures of people's bikes..
    Agreed, let's not turn this into a repository of pictures of bikes just dumped from other sites. Freezing cold day here in NYC, but been riding every day anyway. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks! I feel the same way about your Jag! [​IMG] They're not show bikes by any stretch of the imagination. I ride the s#!t out of all of them. And rarely clean them.

    The Norton Commando is finally available in Canada. I love this bike but it would be hard to justify spending almost $20,000 on it. Regardless, if I get another motorcycle, it will be between this or the Ducati Monster 1100.

    This bike is looking sick Kookz, and I am normally not a fran of the Ducati aesthetic. What all have you done to it?

    Thanks. Started with a stock '06 Sport 1000 Monoposto (which was the only model to get the asymmetrical swingarm/single rear shock and dry clutch).

    Swapped the entire front end for one from a 1098 (forks, brakes, clipons, master cylinders)
    999 wheels front and rear
    999 rear brake
    Zard exhaust
    Removed belt covers
    EVR pressure plate/springs
    Open clutch cover
    Removed battery box/battery (replaced with a 2 lb LiFePo4 cell under the seat)
    Higher spring rate Eibach spring on the rear

    I think that's really everything that's visible on it, the only other thing is a lightweight flywheel. The ECU and Power Commander are waiting for a day on the dyno to go on.

    its not hard to justify the $20,000. its a good investment, an investment in your happines.

    Great call. Investment in your happiness...priceless advice.

    By the way, would it offend anybody's sensibilities if I posted some photos of my vespas, or is that not appropriate on this thread?

    I may have posted some of these already, but getting spring fever:

    Obviously, I prefer a classic American motorcycle like Harley Davidson, but a huge fan of Brit bikes as well, and looking for a late 60s/early 70s Triumph to round out my collection..
