Sort of orange ... my Husaberg FS570. It's the "Resident Evil" version! (It was a movie bike, used in the filming of Resident Evil. Russian army zombies!)

Thanks for the comments.

I used genuine original 1971 Honda SL350 front and rear mudguards, 1974 Honda CB175 fuel tank and speedo, Fantic 50 headlight, Conti TKC tyres, renthal bars, K&N filter, LED indicators, generic silencers. I cut off rear frame from under the tank then fabricated rear frame tubes, battery box, side panels auxilliary fuel carrier and seat etc. All my own work including paint in pearls and candy apple. I have made a few changes along the way while in use but I have got it exactly how I like it now.

Also have a long term keeper. My trusty Fazer thou.

I have spruced her up somewhat with the all black look. But there's some race suspension mods, fat bars, gearing and power mods too. It does everything.

From touring.

To trackdays.

Been a faithful companion for over ten years now and I've owned a lot of other bikes in parallel but never found a replacement. That new SDR has a lot to live up to....

Ok so not posting a lot at the moment, time is taken up on other projects. 1290 seems pretty sorted and guys don't seem to doing huge amounts too it.
So with that I have just added an 1988 851 Tricolre to the clan. Not perfect but not bad for a 27 yo bike.
Only 6600 km on it (rear tyre was made in 1989) and considering that it is only 3 years older than the Mille it is a generation apart ride wise.
It is a surprisingly good ride for an older bike, even with the 16' tyres. It pulls strongly, brakes are way better than expected, reasonably comfortable, although my 50yo wrists do feel it.
Still taking it reasonably easy due to the old rear tyre, new one is on its way.
Biggest complaint is the ridiculous mirrors, don't even know why they bothered.
I have a soft spot for older Ducati's but of course they are not without their issues.
The Mille was recently off the road for two months after I blew the front brake master cylinder trying to bleed them after putting on braided brake lines. Finally found a new Moto Guzzi replacement for it. All part of the fun.
As for getting it past the bride, well, I sold it too her based on investment potential (that and the fact she loves bikes as well).
With only 307 Tricoles made and with earlier Ducati prices heading north, it might even work.
Seen people make worse financial decisions, at least I get to enjoy it and you don't get that investing in shares.
So saving up for an 750 F1, think it would fit nicely in between the two. Last bevel, first Pantah, first Desmoquattro, red, white and green etc.
As for a favourite, it's hard to pick. I enjoy riding anything, even the brides 390 is a hoot.
Captain sensible would pick the Tiger, just because it is usable everywhere and comfortable. It's not overly exciting but not all that dull either, the 800 engine has enough to get you by and it doesn't have the weight of the 1200 ADV bikes out there. If I haven't ridden the 1290 for a while the Tiger is the one I think I would pick if there "can be only one". Then I ride the 1290, nothing puts a smile on my face like that thing and that's what it is all about.

Scamb66,

How do like riding the 390 in comparison with the 990 and 1290? I imagine it would be fun as hell! Not supermoto fun, but funn!

Sometimes I miss my old sv. That bike was just unique and looked great. The girlfriend loved to ride on it. Image

Since then, I picked up a v Strom 1000 for commuting, touring, and some sliding around on dirt roads. Bought a 08 990. The girlfriend also bought a 390 Duke.

It's a fun little bike to ride, you have to rev the shit out of it to get anywhere but that's half the joy of it. It desperately needs a quick cam throttle but otherwise its pretty good.
Definitely no 990/1290 but at less than 150kg it gets by alright. My missus has a -40kg weight advantage over me and she quite often surprises me when I look back in the mirror.
Almost 2-stroke fun.

You still have the Beemer?

Nice bikes. Love the Morini, looks in bloody good condition.
I get a lot of joy out of older bikes, if you are not much of a tinkerer than they would probably just frustrate you.

My 2003 Yamaha FZ1 somewhere between Lake George and Lake Placid, New York. Like Screwdriver, I have a love affair with this motorcycle. Has to be one of the best all arounders ever built! I'll be passing it down to my son when he turns 16 next year.

Other end of the spectrum to a 1290/990 Superduke.
Not had it long and the credit for the build goes to the previous owner. Just want some dry Tarmac in the UK to ride it.

That top RGV looks the goods. Ohlins front end and rims from what (Aprillia RS250)? Bodywork makes it look pretty modern.
I wish current versions of these were still available, imagine what they would be like with 20 years of more development gone into them.
Road or track bike?
I would love to get another smoker. Was on the look out for an Aprillia RS250 when I picked up the 851, prices here in Oz have nearly doubled in the last year or two with them.
Hard to find a decent one under A$10k anymore. First year of riding in Australia at the time limited you to 250cc and these thing were thrashed/crashed by, well guys like me.
That and a healthy 250 production racing scene has left very few available in original condition.
Funnily enough most of Oz now has a different leaners scheme that limits you to 660cc and 150 kw/ton which opens them up to heaps more choices but not these 250cc smokers.

I remember way back about 1986 :| .... I had a Kawasaki GPZ600 at the time and I was on a 2 month ban for acumilating 12 points on my licence :shock: A guy at work had bought a Suzuki RG250 Gamma and he gave me a lift home. Holy shit ! The rear perch seemed so feckin high in comparison with the rider, and I had a perfect view of the clocks.
So I can see the tacho (and thinking to myself) as he pulls away each time..... Nothing....nothing....nothing.. But then it hit 6000 rpm's and Whoa... Like someone lit the touch paper. It was hilarious but I'm not sure it would have been my ideal cup of tea , but somehow it's something I never forget. The only 2 stroke I ever owned was my first bike at 17 which was a GP100 and never looked back with fond memories apart from having my own freedom.
After that I bought a Suzuki SP 370 which was such a hoot and everyone would want a go, (and because it was such fun and wheelied so well,it's probably why I never missed that GP100).

And a few years later my brother got hold of a Stan Steven's tuned RD350LC which I had a go on, but the ride was spoilt due to it keep cutting out on one cylinder, but when it hit 6000 rpm's you had to hold on tight :shock: .

And my only other adventure on a 2 stroke was ( again, late 1980's) an RD 500LC with an orange Marlborough paint scheme. Considering it was a friends, who was a mechanic, it was awful, it wouldn't turn in and the brakes, ( well on this one) just didn't work. I remember getting back on my GPZ600 thinking it was 100 times better.
I have admiration for 2 strokes but my passion is big cc's with a helping of torque 8)
