My daily ride - Lets see yours
« on: Aug 10, 2012, 19:37:48 »
I just got home from a ride and realized yet again how much I love the feeling of blasting down the road on two wheels.  I love my bike and wanted to share a few pics.  Simple, mostly stock 2000 ZRX1100.  I want to clean up the front a bit and a few other things but mostly just love to jump on and twist the throttle.  I have a few other vintage machines I'm doing builds on and that's another kind of thrill.   I know most all of you do too.   I just needed a moment to celebrate the reliable, only needs normal maintenance, doesn't break down kind of daily thrill machine.  I know you've got one.  Lets see it.

Thanks.

Beautiful Kawi, I've always love those ZRX's. I don't believe I've ever seen that colour though, really nice.

Here's mine, 2009 Suzuki Gladius. I love this bike, suits my riding style to a tee. Not many changes as its purely a daily rider while I work on the others. Just swapped out the bars for superbike ones, made a chin spoiler and will be making a fender eliminator this winter to get rid of the stock fender. Will also be swapping out the headlight.

Wow!  I've never seen one of those before.  That's a really cool bike.  I dig the belly fairing.  I've thought of adding one to mine.  I've actually removed the traditional little front cowl from my ZRX and just recently fitted a set of clubmans and bar-end mirrors.  Still fits me quite well with the stock rearsets.

Very nice, clean FJ.  I love those Kerker exhausts.

Yeah, If I had a triumph it would be that one...

That's really nice!  Very clean.  Does that have a passenger seat option or is that just a trunk in your tail section... ;D

Thanks!

It is a Corbin Smuggler solo seat.  I can have it off and the stock seat back on in about three minutes.
