Your other toys

Now obviously we all love bikes - namely Triumph bikes - but I'm sure there are more people on this site who love other motorized things as well. So just kind of curious does your choice in bike reflect in your choice of car?
So here's mine - I drive a Mazda RX8 - which I absolutely love. Not the fastest car in the world but it hugs the corners quite nicely.


Then of course the bike - '09 D675


I think they match quite nicely. Though I haven't gotten recent pictures of either of them, the Mazda now has tinted windows and the D675 now has fender eliminator kit. Now as far as my dad goes, I think he's got a matching combo as well. He's got an HD something-or-rather (who really knows what they're called when they all look the same) and a Shelby GT500. But don't hate my dad, he also has a Triumph

Well, of course there's the bikes, currently a pair of Triumphs and a little Honda - see sig line for that bit - but since you're asking about 'other' toys..

'08 BMW 335i
Amazing how much torque you can get from a pair of turbos, eh?
These shots are both at Sears Point, though we've also had her out to Laguna and Thunder Hill.



And an '01 Donzi 22 Classic. 502 Mag, Bravo I, M3 procharger, and a number of other mods. Best so far is a bit over 82 mph, although I suspect the current combo is good for 85 once dialed in. This was on Lake Powell a couple years ago.


And the Carver, an '89 32' Santigo that really doesn't get out all that much these days but does serve as an apartment in the city to help keep the 140 mile round-trip commute down to only a couple times a week.


Then there's the truck, an '05 Ram 1500 quad cab hemi, lowered a bit and bagged to still carry/tow/do truck stuff, 22" wheels, exhaust, intake, ecu tune.


I think that about covers it, at least until the job front sorts out a bit.

Nice, very nice.
Most of mine are poor compared but here they are anyway.

After a recent dynojet they manged 1 Horsepower each.




And our prized stallion, did I say 1 horsepower, I meant 1/4 for this one.





6 others but this is a bike thread.

I don't have any decent pics of my Ducati. I do have these pics, though.

Here's a older and very wet pic of my Bonneville:



Here's my GTi stuck in the snow:



Here's my '75 Corvette:

Very nice - Whalers are great! If I could handle the weight, I'd replace my 10' RIB and use a 13 Whaler as the tender for my Carver. I have to admit, last year I offered to trade my Adventurer for a 13 Whaler, but the guy didn't go for the deal.

Hmmm - toys.

I just sold my fixed keel sailboat - much too big for the shallow water round here - so I'm a little blue right now!

For some reason I don't understand the attraction of power boats even though they would be much more usable round here.

Maybe I'll get a cat.

Not that kind of cat Prop - a Hobie Cat or similar!
