    Madonna bike:

    7949.jpeg

    Because like Madonna, she might have been something to brag about back in '95 - but now she's kinof saggy and old.


    Seeking tips:
    • Shock rebuild advice
    • Replacement bodywork
    • Engine technicians
    • Things to look out for

    She needs some love, but is basically sound. $2500 = the cheapest way to 11sec 1/4 mile ever in any case!

    In other news I have a minty mint mint SXV550 with a fresh Noland TWC rebuild for sale....

    That one looks to be in better shape than mine. That said, mine looked great in the pictures too, but there is a lot of little stuff when you look closer. I wonder what the mileage is? Form the way it looks its still a good deal at $3500.

    Those ARE nice aren't they? If you Black anodize polished aluminum....it comes out like smoky and wild looking.It's an awesome look.

    The vintage goodness just means that I get street cred without having to keep up with the latest and greatest.
    Enjoy the hell out of it.

    Careful of that #3 cylinder. IIRC there is an issue with it not getting enough oil if the bike spends too much time on one wheel. We had a few of them we bought blowed up back in the day at my old shop.


    The first gen r1 is also a FANTASTIC bike. I would have a hard time choosing between the two... They are SO different. but both SO cool.

    power wheelies at 90.Clip-on position is as comfortable as sand in your shorts.I like a big standard.Seriously craving the CB1000r.....turnkey and plush.
    For me it's not the overall amount of power avalibal that makes the bigger bikes fun. It's the ease of which I can get to that powee that I like.

    By the time my 600 i4 is in the power I'm able to be arrested.

    The 954 I get to feel it very time I stop. I can pop wheelies over train tracks and dips in the road by breathing on the throttle. I like being able to leave black marks out of 90degree corners witbout breakgin a sweat. I like staying in top gear on the highway and still being able to telling at my self in front of anyone else on the road if needed.


    The stability and size of the older big bikes is nice too.

    Oh, and no one ever says "my brother has one, but his is the 1000." Or "aren't you a little big for a 600?" So I'm far lest likely to get into a parking lot bitch slapping.

    That said, my last one lead to three felony convictions..., So....

    Sad thing is I just saw a 2002 model the other day for a song. Like 2500, I am sure it could have been talked down to 2k though, knowing what i know about the first years, lol.
