Some very weird bikes out on show! The one with the tremendous fork rake and lengths look like a modified Victorian boneshaker!


This one looks like it's got a rear car tyre:

Choppers are a fashion icon in the States Jon. They're suited for people with back problems and low intellect Wink (j/k)

A VFR800 won't have the tank range to cover the States, unless you're cycling around New York only. I don't know why they are so popular in the States. It prob. has something to do with being American and all that. Nothing wrong with that, except the quality of HD stuff is terrible and tacky.

I think they are all built to look at rather than ride

a vfr800 could do America easily, they should do like 180mile per tank.

Like America is how big....?!!

180miles/tank isn't so bad. The older models were lucky to get 150mpg at urban speeds. US gallons - not UK ones!

That GSXR1300 is just mental. Goodness knows how long they've spent chroming it all and adding the refridgerated wine bottle in the rear with a pressure valve to keep the goods in tip top condition for the end of a ride Very Happy
