This post isn't just to lefty and or Bo but all the lemmings who feel riders must love all bikes.

No matter what bike a person loves to own, ride, show off or put in his man cave as sculpture, that is his choice and good for him. But and this is a big butt, that doesn't make his choice nice looking, well built, super handling, getting great MPG. Doesn't mean any one else finds it a great bike and because nekked chicks are paid to set on them it still doesn't mean they're a super bike. You can love, lust after, fantasize about racing with it, sleeping with it and more power to you. I have just the same rights as you to like some and dislike others and it just so happens I like a lot of bikes you post and find still others not to my taste. No different than you feel towards bikes I like.

So lighten up children and get on with posting photo of bikes.

[QUOTE=Boldor;2418094]One is a poxy commuter. The other is a race bike.

One is ridden by a Numpty. The other by Agostini.

One needs a broad power curve. The other may squash all of its power into a 2'000 rpm band.

Apples and Oranges HAP.[/QUOTE

Agostini rode a works Honda 125? I must have missed that episode in the great man's career!

I really hate to break up a great ugly fest but I'm compelled to show the flip side of ugly and what bikes used to look like when design and style were somewhat more... uh, esthetic.



This beezer reminds me of a Rockola juke-box for some reason.




Even the guts of this Vinnie are visually pleasing




A cafe with cachet.




Remember when Triumphs looked more like this?






Sorry for the interruption... now back to the beautiful modern "tasteful" motorcycles.



Your friend Nort

I love the look and intricate complexity of some of the Japanese low capacity 2 stroke race bikes of the 1960s.

I think they are more beautiful and interesting without fairings so those below are presented tastefully naked (in race trim they all would have been faired but this being an adult motorcycle site I think we can relax that restriction):

RA31 125cc V4








The mighty Suzuki RK67 I think is especially cool. It is a tiny 50cc twin, with top speed of 170 kph (105mph) and had a 14 speed gearbox. Riding it to its potential must have been incredibly demanding (and fun!) !
I would love to have one of those in the shed just to stop and look at from time to time

STOP PRESS just found a video of the RK67 (with clothes on unfortunately) - imagine riding one of those to 170kmh - check the tacho when he revs it

Slightly off topic, but for lovers of 60's two stroke GP bikes, might I suggest reading Mat Oxley's fascinating book "Stealing Speed". Damned good read!

I hate that, I saw your post, foolishly looked it up on line, innocently read the reviews, realised I had to read it - was forced to buy it.

Thanks a lot MGV
