Those big bore smokers are a riot. I have a 350 and it absolutely shreds. Wheelies everywhere! They scare babies, and I love it!

99% of vehicles on the road have clutches.

Most of the rest of the world, and any driver/rider of significant skill, has a very different perspective on this. Automatic shifting is lazy, not skillful.

The Widowmaker! Fuck yeah dude, absolutely brutal! Pure power, no handling! I have an RD350, a spot less brute force, way more brakes and chassis. I also have a 120hp Suzuki GT750 (water cooled 3 cylinder). It's a terrifying road racer. The power doesn't stop until you realize the bike won't stop in time.

GT750 had horrible brakes
I used to put them together out of the crate and scorch them on the Houston freeways when i was 15 years old
The first year models did not have disc brakes and the shoe brakes up front would fade into nothing after several stops
Damn those bikes were dangerous

LOL stopping that thing on a drum brake does not look like fun.

Looks like it weighs as much as a small horse and carriage.

Stock they are 70hp. They were basically long distance cruisers, maybe the best 2t cruiser ever made.

I machined new heads, did cylinders, my father fabricated pipes, we put an electronic ignition on, and giant carbs. The bike is basically too much for itself. I did build a very nice custom transmission part that is a nice seller for me (not going to disclose for the sake outing myself), but the GT750 is a real runner if you are dumb enough to  try.

Heavy as fuck for the HP they made stock. Not even remotely fast, but the GT750 set the top speed record at Daytona in 1970 (don't quote me on the that year I could be a few off) and almost won the race if it wasn't for them blowing tires on the banking. The bikes have loads of potential, but they were perhaps a bit before their time. As we know, water cooled two strokes are the epitome of fast road racing bikes.

I got upgraded to a Jeep for my rental for the next two months:



Having now experienced the local icons of a couple of Harley's, a Dodge Challenger, and now this, I feel quite confident in saying that the vehicles that have such massive popularity/status over here are, for the most part, all show and no go. They tend to do one thing well IME, and that's feel good at mid speed/mid revs.

I find it quite bizarre, but also kinda not.

The Dept Of Transportation made Suzuki put a disc brake on the front before any of the 2nd year bikes came to America
I worked for a Suzuki dealership in H-town
We used to also take customers bikes out at lunch time:biker::biker:
We tore the fuck outta some of them:smilingpuppy:

Meh. I'm not complaining at all.

I just really, really, really wish I had the prerequisites in place here to get me a motorbike here.

I might even stump up for one of those mini moto/pit bikes before the summer ends to take out to a nice strip I know just to get the rush of being on two wheels into my system.

I also quite fancy having something for the dog to chase me on...

My buddy just got a KTM690. He's 71. I'm pretty jelly. I refuse to let myself enjoy modernity.

Jesus, I don't know if I could decide between the following for my next bike right now. Need to see where in the world/in life I land next...

1. CR500 Supermoto



2. 2020 CBR1000RR-R



3. Whichever year R1 takes my fancy (as long as it has the Crossplane engine)

Can you buy that CR500 as a ready to ride bike? It scares me in just the right ways. The others look like death but I know my limitations.
