Your car goes here..... http://www.reality-check.ca/threads/167408-post-up-your-ride..../page60
i got bored of that bike super quick. they would be alot more fun as a 2 stroke
'02 R6 track bike I picked up. Still have to pick up race plastics for it, and strip it down a bit...
it's far from stock
HAHA, I so never even noticed. Caught it as the last thread showing on the main page!
Good thing it's a sweet car or we'd have to get medieval on your hiney.
If it helps, that place where I grew up...well that house overlooks a huge beach that was private to us pretty much and I used to race one of these up and down it every day as a kid
I want. A 4 wheeler would be nice too, one of these days we are going to get one.
neither was the one i was riding
Well if we're throwing quads in here...
Me & a friend summer 2010. Mines the blue SV650s

Me doing what I do best!
2009 V Star 1100 Custom
bike got repainted since the last pic i had on here. thought id update
First ride of the season yesterday
got rid of the DRZ and picked up this:
2006 Gas Gas EC300 (street legal 2 stroke)
Just picked this up:
Its the only picture I have so far. Been driving for 10hrs so far in the thickest fog I've ever seen. Didn't go over 60 between St. Stephen and Saint John. Party because I couldn't see the road and partly because within the first 500m of getting on the highway we saw a coyote, 2 deer and a racoon.
So now we're hold up in a closed Irving in Rothesay waiting for the sun to come up.
Picked it up in Maine and loaded in into the Caravan. THe look on the costoms officer was priceless. "You're importing the van? Oh a bike......where is it? You have a bike where?........Its in the van? OK pull over there, I have to see this"
Sweet! Z1k ride when you get the thing legal!!
Told you it would fit! Pull the mirrors and compress the suspension, and good to go!
Minivans are the nemesis of bikers in Toronto. It's what the thieves use to steal bikes from parking lots and the side of the street.
Didn't even need to do that. Just had to spin the bars down. That said it doesn't have mirrors. Have to find some. Then its time to get rid of some of that green.
Fuck, I really like the second gen's. I'm not going to lie, I'm moderately jealous. How many miles on her? No issues at the border? I'm curious what buddy ended up letting you have it for too. He seemed like a decent guy when I talked to him a few months back. Ditch all of the green, toss on a set of CRG mirrors, and swap the exhaust, and you're golden...
If you want OEM mirrors, I've got the ones off of my '06, or if you're interested in bar ends, let me know, and I'll drop you the link I ordered my CRG's from.
Hmmm, I've seen that bike elsewhere today.....
It hasn't left my neighbourhood. Unless you mean kijiji. I threw it up there just to see what happens. Can always head back down and buy another no that I know it fits in my caravan.
Yes Dana, I desparately want the mirrors and bar ends if they are smaller than the ones on their now. Thanks! I only have 1/2" on either side right now to get it in my basement because of those.
There's 2k kms on it. Just push a button and it swaps between mph and kph. That was a nice surprise to find out.
The border was simple and the guy at the customs office was awesome.
Now its just a waiting game to find out the downside. My luck never goes like this.
Mirrors are off mine already. Bar ends will be off this week when I mount my new mirrors the way I actually want them...haha
Works for me. I have to send the RIV info in before I can ride it anyway.
Mind going over the importing process? Did you need a recall clearance letter? Did you have to send docs to the border 72hrs in advance?
is this one of the bikes you guys are losing your shit over?
Yes, you should buy it.
