What makes YOUR bike special?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by jphanna, Nov 11, 2011.

  1. guys i did the hotting up cars 'phase of my life' in the 80's. back then a stock car was boring and unthinkable for a p plater.

    i only been in the mbike world for less than 2 years...and it seems that people (all ages), buy a new/er bike, and instantly put on new bits and pieces for power and/or comfort. they make it THEIR bike by personalising it.

    to me, when you see for example an orig 'unmolested' Mike Hailwood replica duc, or a 1980's turbo jap sport bike (with all the 80's lary farings) in orig condition....that would be spectacular. each to their own.

    for me....in 5 years time i will have the only M50, that hasnt been modified. their wont even be a flyshit on their that wasnt there when it left the factory.

    the other day i bumped into an R1 rider, in the hills, and he told me he just put Ohlins suspension and testing it out. he loved it.


    what makes your bike better than the 'other guys' with the same model?

  4. Nothing makes my bike special. At the end of the day it's just a UJM, but it's my UJM.

  6. It's mine and I can get on it whenever I want. Also the first brand new bike I have bought, so it will always be special.

    It's also 'unmolested' which, perhaps because I am growing up a little, I am now realising is (mostly) better for me. That's after years of putting anything aftermarket on my bikes that I could find.

  15. possibly the only LAMS approved VFR400 in the country. :D

    That, and my obnoxious numberplate, odd mirrors, and the ever so deliciously retro paint job which still gives me a hard on after all this time.
