I was going around a curve and a car came around the other way over the double yellow so I swerved to avoid them and went into some dirt on the side of the road. I lost traction, the bike low sided, and I

There is a little ambiguity there but this is the reference I heard them mention on the Cafe Racer TV show. From the [Cafe Racer entry on wikipedia](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caf%C3%A9_racer): > In 1973, US freelance writer Wallace Wyss, contributing to Popular Mechanics magazine, asserted the term

Test rode one of these two weeks ago. It’s like riding an extremely fast scooter that handles like a sportbike. No gears, no clutch, and the throttle control through the turns is very, well… confidence inspiring. No engine noise allows for inconspicuous launches, but
You realize traditional engines operate on combustion. There are literally hundreds of explosions happening beneath you every minute every time you ride. But they’ve been around long enough for people to consider them safe! Interesting fact, when combustion engines came around and took market
Yeah, I am not going to buy either one, but they are pretty fucking rad.

Personally I love the look of the stubby rear end. I do also like having visible brake lights and turn signals, though, and I can’t really tell what going on with those here.
Last I knew they were still around, just changed owners. I can’t find anything more recent than about Sept 2014 though, so that could be all wrong. http://gas2.org/2014/09/10/mission-motorcycles-now-mission-electric/
I don’t have a supermoto (YET) but what makes them appealing to me is the riding style. When I’m on the track on my CBR600 the only thing I wan’t to do is go balls to the wall but in a very finesse way,
i used to work for a company that helped create the renderings in car advertisements (for the record almost all photos and any advertising material is rendered). Its incredibly fascinating. The part that i worked with was a camera designer that would create a
Yes, you’re definitely on the right track! The idea is to shift your weight to the inside so that the combined center of gravity is lower. Your upper body is where your weight is, so your upper body is what should be shifted off
with us it’s been a constant problem, my dad could never get it to work, and bare in mind he knew his stuff when it came to bikes: it would never tick over reliably, so it would just wind down and eventually stall. when
I’m not a fan of the spring seat on a bike with twinshock suspension on the swingarm. The the shocks should have sufficient travel and shock absorption to negate the use of a springer seat. Seems like oldschool for the sake of oldschool otherwise.
One of the better looking non-trellis frames I’ve seen. Anyone know if if it’s been modified in any way?
I like it a lot! After the muffler change, excva and cat delete the a/f needed retuning though. It’s quite loud but sounds good, it has a deep growls sound, not whiney like a lot of exhausts for 600’s.
I remember when I researched this bike way back and was blown away by its simplicity, minimalism, and classic bmw feel; it quickly became a dream bike. Then recently I go again to look it up and am really glad you posted you posted
That’s not the issue I have with Harley Davidson motorcycles. They are simple bikes, run forever, and nowadays are relatively problem free. My issue is the price they demand. Way too much.
The 300 is my first bike, (technically my mom’s since I’m only 17). I have no experience on larger bikes other than a Suzuki 650 v-strom that I’m still getting the hang of. The Ninja is a very small bike in general, so I’ve
Beautiful bike mate! I had a NC24 and I miss that bike every single day 🙁
Slowly being rebuilt by my dad ad I over the last three years. Picture was taken last summer while waiting for a Jerry can of gas after I ran out. No fuel gauge and a broken Odometer equals gambling whenever you ride it. will
Thanks for the link – I was wondering why it was called ‘Triten’, as I’d already heard of Tritons…
There is something about bear elbows on a motorcycle that makes me cringe. I mean.. sometimes I’ll wear just a tshirt on a hot days casual ride so im not complaining, but there is something about that pic lol. Awesome looking bike though.
Weight distribution is about the same, but you can tune in variable amounts of anti-dive, so that it either doesn’t pitch forward, or pitches less. Also, since there’s not telescopic legs flexing and binding under brake loads, the suspension moves more freely when braking.
