Love it. The cooling fins on the case and the dirt bike bars really make that bike.

Talked myself out of the Brown Seat & Grips as with t100, there is Black & Sliver and then the Blue of the Bike so I am thinking the Brown might just be too much

Already shopping exhaust but this is the sound I am going for (and what is on that gold bike) - Will be a fun lil round towner and two upper

I like your wire wheels much more than the alloys.

I dig this one but not the exhaust, my balls would be roasting:

2nd Bike - Two Upper for the Old Lady & Kids - Always wanted to do something like this and Stan found a deal too good to pass up - Bone Stock Blank Canvas original owner

The 48 will be my Sunday Hopper with Troy and the Lads

Hey Man, if you want to try and fit the engine up your ass, that's your business - Kind of flattered that you chose my bike to do it

FYI, I know whats on the truck and I know who you got it from - Enjoy the salvaged slash used fake title bitch

Yeah the whole build on the bike is documented and posted on the AF1 forum.
Bike is scheduled to be picked up by Haulbikes.com within the next 7 business days. Door to door delivery was only $498.

Yeah that is from Sherman Oaks CA to Oak Lawn. I was going to try to have a friend bring it as I have a buddy who lives right down the street from this guy who is moving back to DT chicago next week but he didn't have enough room. Peace of mind and fully insured in a double decker custom semi to haul bikes sealed the deal. I iwll post pics when I get in in my possession.

Word - The folks I used are long out of business but their trailer was beautiful and the bikes shipped flawlessly - Same distance but I had San Diego to DT Chicago - Can't wait to loop that sum bitch out and then pretend I am sorry as I struggle to hold back laughter

You're going to enjoy the Triumph, Bug. I have a 2005 T 100. It's stock and I love it...best handling, smoothest running, twin cylinder, chain drive motorcycle I've ever ridden or owned. It's more often than not the bike I choose when I just go for an impromptu ride!
We need to go for a ride again on our Triumphs!

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!
