I'm afraid you couldn't melt that down and pour it on me.

No, but not because it isn't practical...

Cheers, Jeff

I like the rear tire and the little window over the front sprocket. Not really my cup-o-tea but excellent workmanship.

I just love their tanks, and the idea of riding a retro engine with modern suspensions...this must be a blast around the city.

Hell yeah. If I had 2 bikes. Versys for the practical, and Classified Moto for the WOW.

Always trust your cape.

Now that I like.

Reliable Jap engine combined with retro/modernist looks.

Lovely.

Good luck exploring the infinite abyss

I have two bikes the garage.

If I had three, that wouldn't make the cut.

If I had 10...maybe.

Interesting, but it doesn't light my candle. If I had ten bikes in the garage, this wouldn't come close to being number eleven. Maybe 29th or 30th, but then I'd need a massive garage and that isn't likely either. My charming spouse doesn't quite understand three motorcycles - but I'm dilligently working on that slight issue. Never say die!

I take it back. H-D actually make some great rides, 'specially the Sportster 1200 a few years back that looked like a "street-tracker"!

INSTANT collectible!

I had a Triumph Scrambler, it reminds me of that, looks pretty cool! Speaking of which this one looks pretty damn nice:

I wonder what the tank is. The Benelli that everyone's using? I notice they changed that Virago to chain drive. Unless it's the XV920 motor. I like it except for the tail piece being too abrupt and making you look like you're riding on a board. The frame--at least parts of it--looks custom too. I generally like that Champagne color.

Couldn't have a bike without fenders. I ride in the rain and with gravel driveways around here there is a lot of dust between rains.

I've been toying with the possibility of building a totally impractical 2nd bike from a Suzuki S40 cruiser using a kit put out by Ryca Motors:

It's a totally bolt-on kit... no welding.
