An excellent 1957 Triumph Tiger 110 650.

Just Beautiful.

Another courageous action shot.

BMW R100 CS.

Pictures like this give me serious wanderlust...

The Pass... Triumph vs Harley.

Yamaha XJ900.

Known as the Seca 900 here in the U.S. and one of my all time favorite UJM's. (Universa Japanese Motorcycles) of the 70's / 80's. This is an excellent example from the ADV Rider site.

Here in the stock colors.

Another fantastic BSA scrambler from Mr Dave Martin.

You can find lots more from Dave over at bsabitsscrapsandallsorts. He's linked over in the sidebar. A real beauty Dave!

ZRX Turbo. When 1200 cc just isn't enough...

Triumph Trackmaster!

What a cool Z50!

How'd you like to be a kid and find this under your tree? A cafe Z50!!

Really cool Yamaha FJ1200 Sidecar Rig!

Before there was a Busa or GSXR or even a CBX there was the Munch Mammut!

Basically a small car engine stuffed into a motorcycle frame by a dedicated fanatic! Plenty more about them on the web. HERE's a search I did.

Sushi and Pasta! Beautiful MV Agusta F4 near Mount Fuji!!

Reader Ride. Beautiful Heritage Softtail.

I don't post a lot of modern or custom Harleys on here. I promise you that it's not out of prejudice. I think Milwaukee makes em as good as anyone. There's just seems to be a lot of dedicated Harley based blogs going and most of them do it really well. But every now and then a real beauty catches my eye like this one sent in by reader Eddie Anderson.

Eddie Writes:
A friend of ours in California bought this bike brand new in 2002. It’s a 2003 100th Anniversary

Heritage SoftTail “Black Beauty”. We visited them in 2004, after he installed “many” extras, and I fell in love with the bike the minute I laid eyes on it. It was definitely the wheels that made it stand out. From that year on, every time we spoke to Jim I reminded him, or my wife reminded him for me (with a little coaching), to let me know if he ever decides to sell the bike.

Well, we never thought he would part with it, but in April of this year, three months before my birthday, Jim called my wife and said he was finally going to part with the bike. Two days later, she called him back and said “We’ll buy it”, but don’t tell Eddie. She had the bike shipped to a friend’s house, here in Washington State, and gave the bike to me for my 47th birthday. Mary definitely added a whole new definition to the word “Surprised”.

Hell of a nice gift! That wife of yours is definately a keeper! Thanks For the pics!

Cagiva 900 ie

I believe this is a variant / offshoot of the Ducati Elefant but I'm NOT an authority on these bike by any means. One tough looking mother though! Oh by the way I saw this for sale on E-bay. If you're interested get over there and do a search on Cagiva and she should turn up.

BMW Cafe Porn

Kawasaki Versys converted into a "real" adventure bike.

Now THAT'S a dirtworthy Versys. Wish I had more info in the modifications but all I have is the picture. Obviously there has been a feont end swap (from a KLR perhaps?) and a rear spoked wheel grafted on. Great Stuff!
