Cal_Dave, I have homework for you.

Ah, the YamaHOG! :)

I have thought about where I want to go with mine. The only thing about this bike is that it is very quiet. Back in the early 80's it was not yet "cool" to blow people's ears off with your exhaust. So the OEM exhaust on my mother chicken is engineered for performance, not sound. 

I feel like if I were to go with some sort of bobber modification, I would need to change the exhaust. Not really something I want to do. But I will say that working on it is too much fun to just leave it as is.

 It's big, black, fast, and appeals to Linux and motorcycle enthusiasts alike: the new E-motorcycle TTX02 from Mavizen.

 Motorbike with Linux
 
   The limited edition Mavizen TTX02 with Linux board-computer.

 Whoever thought ''electro-motorcycles'' were heavy, slow, and probably ugly, never heard of Mavizen. The English company leads the field in carbon-free motorcycles and in Las Vegas last week unveiled its top of the range model for the 2010 racing season.

 The TTX02 is the first electro racing bike with board-computer, USB, and IP address, enabling monitoring and tuning via integrated WLAN. At the heart of the 130 mph racing machine is a Linux system. The company has a limited number of TTX02 on offer: 50 units are available at around US$40,000 each.

That's a serious rat-bike.

I had an xs650, it would rattle my teeth at speed. I much preferred going to 90 degree v-twin or v-4. It was very, very easy to work on, though, and I miss that.

V4's are a bitch.  Especially those Honda V65's.  Fuck pulling those carbs, you literally need a large pry bar to get them off.

I much prefer I-4's of the 1 L variety.  Much faster.
