I couldn't fine a themed thread for this, so I figured being spring and people have the bike fever it would be good time to kick this off.

Here's a few shots of my new baby to get us started. I'll be doing more later this summer.

Note the same breed of motorcycles, but two wheels none the less. I tried to set the camera 100% up before I handed it over to my dad for the action shots, and he does a pretty good job of choosing the right spots to stand.

Nice choice with the Yamaha I love the look of the bikes with fewer fairings and more mechanical look to them.

A quick couple shots of the bike fully cleaned from the Winter.






A couple of the interesting shots.

Feel free to repost them here if you want, or leave them, or go take some more of your bike and post here.   

Nice shots Steve125, or should that be Steve468? I grew up riding Yamaha dirtbikes so that brings back some memories. Enjoy and be safe.

468 was the number from whoever had the bike before me. I don't feel like taking them off though, white sideplates always tend to be distracting in an image. The numbers are always what I look at first to tell if the picture is well focused too :)

cjeff, those are some nice shots. I love the look of the steel frame on that bike. A very unique look.

An '89 CR250 that was restored and sold for a small profit. Would have kept it, had an awesome engine, but was the first year of upside down forks which were awful.



Finally, a picture of my Dad riding his YZ250.

Now here's a theme I can get behind!

It's not quite spring at 8500 feet.

What a difference 1000 feet makes.

These are from February; I've managed to ride every month so far this year.

Here are a couple of shots I like from last September.

Ahhh bikes

here's my last bike (work in progress there)
shot with dynax 5 and 20/2.8 probably with a CPL


my second and also my favorite bike, sadly it was destroyed when I slammed into a car going 70km/h


my first bike which was modified every time i dropped it so it slowly became a streetfighter



i've been bike less for almost a year now...its time my finacial situation improves so i could get a bike again.

So the weather was bad today so I partook of a 1 hour mod that only took $20 and a trip to Advanced Auto.

It's called a Pod light mod. I added the two inner running/turn signals to my headlight assembly. Was really easy and love the look. I'll be eliminating the outer stalk turn signals and replacing them w/ flush mount LED lights in their place later this coming week. Until then, this is what it looks like.



I also have a fender eliminator coming and new rear LED turn signals and 35w 6000k HID Bi-Exenon lights to replace the halogen headlights. This has become my new obsession for a while.
