The BMW looks the goods ANGRY the problem for me is I'll get to spoilt with comfort and handling riding something like that and then my poor old CR will never leave the shed it's hard enough for me to make a effort to ride it now :(

I think this CR1000 engine would go nice in my spare bike frame and would probably give the boys at the local dirt drags a good shake up (that's if you could hang on)

The Hyosung was my first little 250 road bike i learnt on, then i upgraded to the CBR1000 and it wasn't too bad, then sold that and went the Hyabusa 1300 for awhile......still thinking of getting another bike, maybe looking at the Yamaha MT-10 as the next one, but am enjoying the 4WDriving too much at the moment to waste cash on the bike, when i can spend it on the car :)

Nice collection w84n01 i hate this thread it makes we want to buy another bike. The Yamaha MT-10 is a great looking bike and I've always had a soft spot for the Hayabusa 1300 especially with the TRE mod to eliminate the speed limiter or a turbo strapped to the side :D Who am i kidding time to get away from this thread before i do something silly :eek:

I recently bought an '87 BMW K100.
Also have in the shed a 1954 Francis Barnett Falcon (it goes, but just) This was used in the Brisbane Ekka Cage of Death in the 60's and had all the lights stripped off for weight.
Also have a Honda Today scooter and some Korean TPG Scooter (ex pizza delivery)

pretty sure she is a bike drag racer.......quite a few bike racers that use only the Busas........even when you crash your bike as a non racer and you have a Busa, the racers will buy the whole thing off you for a decent amount, as the engines in those things are insane!!
