This is one of my favorite bikes of all time, a TZ250. I happen to have one.
My bike is pictured in the library of a local high school. I was asked to speak to the graduating class about motorcycle safety. Their year was almost over. (see the empty shelves)
I've always loved the bike Mickey Rourke had in Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man. I would still love to have one like it.
1989 Harley Davidson FXR Wideglide.
200+ RWHP. All motor. 1680CC Yamaha V-max V4.
Not technically a motorcycle and illegal on public roads. But definitely different.
Having trouble finding good pictures of this bike. I had the original article when Kainzinger came out with it. It was originally 240 RWHP, after some editor for a EuroBike rag in Euro buried it in the catlitter at some track, it was turned back to 200ish.
Two bikes I would love to see make it to production:
1) Honda NAS:
Another view of the NAS:
2) Yamaha MT-03 prototype:
Eyespy, I was very tempted to post that Honda.
That Yamaha looks killer too!
I can't, for the life of me get that picture to show up. I think it's an AOL issue. AOL sucks.
Great in the Winter...
