I went to a bike rally last night and saw some interesting bikes. Sorry about the photos in advance they are from a camera phone. I have varied taste in vehicles, I have a Maserati Spyder, Mercedes C55 AMG Mercedes, for cars. I have fun building Jeep Wranglers I posted photos last winter of one I built up that included many modifications. This years Jeep Wrangler we stuffed a Chevy 350 4 bolt main engine from a 67' or 69' Chevelle, 700R4 transmission with a Ford Expedition 8.8 rear end to handle the torque. These I am sure are considered more extreme SUVs with the lift kits, and massive tires. Obviously not something you just normal everyday drive.
Well, I like Sport bikes as well. Currently I own a Honda Repsol edition CBR 1000rr, full Gp moto racing exhaust, titanium cans, stainless steel pipes. Power commander to dial in the fuel maps for where I want them a little better. Sorry, Ducati fans I don't want all of my vehicles to be Italian. I do like to at times go extremely fast......speaking of fast check out these modifications they did to these baggers. Okay the first couple of pics are just the paint jobs they did on these bikes the last ones are two baggers with turbos these gentlemen put on their bikes. The gold one has gauges down the fuel cell.
Now, I am personally not a bagger type of person but that P-40 (More of a Sport Cruiser I think) I like that rough look. When he had that thing running you could hear two things. First the turbo whine, very distinct. Second, did you see the Gatling gun insert into the rear of the exhaust? When the bike is running it spins around in circles just like a Gatling.....The turbo is liquid cooled, and I did notice he definitely wrapped that exhaust up!! LOL he wasn't trying to burn his leg I'm sure. Still I bet it's pretty warm.......
Here's some photos of my current bike:
Here's a photo of a previous bike I had that I fully customized.... it was a V-Twin Sport bike, like a Ducati. I had the fairings all done, and clear-coated all of the sponsor stickers into it. Full racing exhaust, and I dialed in the ecu with a Yoshimura Fuel Injection Adjuster box. Bit more accurate than a Power commander for this bike without a Dyno. I have a youtube video somewhere of Blue Leds that I tucked into the bike with a remote. It made it look like the bike was breathing at night as it was going down the street. It had flashing capabilities, and constant as well. I did the seat as well to match the bike and windshield. I went to the Repsol because though V-Twins have a lot of torque/power on the low end, they RPM out sooner, and it takes them just a bit longer to get up to their top speeds.
Figured I would share some other stuff I do here when I am not working on cars. When I want to go extremely fast, and get there really quick I usually grab my bike.
