things that make you feel good about motorcycles and riding them, nothing sex related here.

things like the bikers at the body shop at my work who give me shit because it's a honda (they've got bad ass choppers and harleys) but they also give me props for its overall awesome shape and having no other mode of transportation. they call me a true biker, even if it is a honda.

and my favorite was yesterday coming back from work and riding 83north. a brand spanking new yellow/orange lamborgini or whatever you spell it, was driving and after a few inapropriate passes i got meself right next to the young lad driving and he gives me that "that's right i'm cool" look as i am turning my head to look at him and the car. i got a major grin on my face and point to him, and give him the sign language interpretation of "your dick is tiny". he got pissed, reved up but i was far ahead of him by then.... in a historic tag honda CB650.... made me feel good about my cock and historic tags. fuck your new shit.


sorry about taking bandwidth or whatever, just had to mention this.

making my own stuff and modifying what i already have to suit me is a great feeling. got a set of rask rearsets, didnt like where they put my feet (i'm way fat) so i welded studs for the top holes onto the frame that set the pegs farther back and lower. having guys riding new sportbikes saying "i wish i had something like that instead of my"insert bike type here"

some people are like slinkies, basically useless but they still make me smile when i push them down the stairs

i remember when i got my first bike and i'd just gotten a new job and i came home after work and got on my bike and realized i'd operated a jack hammer and kick started a motorcycle that day. i felt kinda cool.

I have to ask - what is the universal sign language interpretation of "your dick is tiny"?

As for things that make me feel good...kick starting a 57 Triumph in front of a bunch of Harley guys who can barely get their big sausage fingers around their ignition keys.

And shopping for shoes.

I went to Sturgis on a Yamaha FZ1 ran a 100+ most of the way across Montana. When I got there I was told it was obvious I road all the way from Oregon because Harleys are the only thing that gets trailered to Sturgis. And this was from a guy that had been going since 1972. Still cracks me up.

JB, why are you so facinated by other men's dicks?

I never got that "tiny dick" thinking that people had about fast cars, I can guarantee that if anyone on this board won 20 mil in the lottery one of the first purchases would be a go fast toy. It has nothing to do with penile enhancement, just most motorheads are adrenalin junkies with a bend toward going stupid fast.

I tell you with 20 million I would probably go out and buy either a ferrari 250 GTO, 71 hemi 'cuda, or a real 427 cobra...and then immediatly reduce said vehicle to a pile of smoldering rubble on some highway somewhere. My last words? "Hey, Watch this!" nevermind that 10 years ago I didn't need a million dollars to buy either american car on that list.

I picked those cars because I am a vintage guy, I think the modern day exotics are for car people who really just don't know any better. Although that 599 GTB is really nice.

L88 vette...L82s were the 190hp 350s from the late 70's and early 80s. ZL1 was the aluminum 427 vette they made like 69 of in 1969. Can you believe I have passed on 2 l88 vettes in my life for cheap? One was a 67 project that I didn't know was one until a friend of mine bought it later on (I didn't have the money when it was offered to me), the other was a 1968 L88 that aq friend of mine swore he would never sell and then when he called I didn't have the money for it. All this was in the 90's before barrett jackson fucked the musclecar hobby in the ass.

anyway, let's hijack this thread by asking the Question "What 5 'Go fast toys' would you buy if you just won the lottery?"

Lotus Esprit Turbo. And I also like the new Lotus Elise & it's faster club racing cousin - can't remember what they call it. And a Lotus Europa.

And My wife really loves 427 Cobras (honest), so I'd buy her one.


Depending on how you count, that's either 4 or 5.

... And I haven't even cracked into the motorcycle list. With $20 million, limiting to just 5 is too narrow.

ok how many bikes can fit in in one car space. According to my garage 9 per car spot so let's rephrase it this way....part of your winnings went to a 400 acre home with a 5 car garage (the 400 acres is to accomidate 1 other toy like a massive yacht or a 747, but you don't park bikes or cars outside)

how would you fill a five car garage?

I'll throw it out there first:

Hemi 69 or 70 Roadrunner
1967 GTO Ram Air Convertible
1970 LS6 Chevelle Convertible
1990 Ferrari F40
9 bikes:
Ducati Paulsmart
Egli Vincent
Ducati 750 SS
Dunstall Commando
no expense spared CR750 replica
MV Agusta Mille
1942 WLA Harley Davidson
2004 Kawasaki ZX10
Dunstall Domi-racer

and my 400 acre toy is either a P-40 warhawk or a P-38 lightning and private airfield.

Car = Shelby Cobra with the 429 (it was a 429 right?), or the Shelby Mustang with the 350 in it. Race prepped and ready to go!

Bikes, too many to mention.

Boats, I use to live in Puerto Rico while my wife was studying. I was a teacher, so I had lots of time off, including summers. As such, I went back to racing other people's sailboats (which I use to do as a kid). I never had the $ to race my own. Anyway, one particular big race in Fajardo, PR, I saw a 70' Santa Cruz racing boat..(BIG FLIPPIN' BUCKS). It was the exact same boat I saw when I use to race on Lake MI. A boat out of Chicago. I asked this guy who got off the boat if they shipped the boat down from Chicago. In a really snotty voice, he said "NO, I have two exactly the same. One to race in the USVI and one to race on Lake MI." BOY, I wish I would have known the universal sign for "small schlong" back then! This guy was compensating so much he must have had a vagina. Sorry to those lady caferacer.netters (and Champ), if I offended you! :)

Maybe I am just a bit jealous too.

Yeller'

Looking down at the top of my girl friend's head makes me feel good LOL

Anyways, driving my 442 makes me feel great, esspecially racing it. Car shows are great too. building engines or modifying my car feels great too. As long as I'm not doing repair work I love working on my car

1980 Honda CB750
1972 Oldsmobile 442

Here's my list without pondering too long...
cars;
Ford GT40 (or Porsche 917LM depending on availability)
Ferrari 312T4 F1 ex Gilles Villenueve (or similar type)
Ferrari 250 Lusso
1913 Mercer Raceabout ('cause you gotta be nutz to drive a Stutz)
bikes;
'75 H/D XR750
'78 Yamaha TZ750
Honda RC30
Britten V-1000
Cotten 250
Husky 250WR
KTM or Japanese modern 450 do-it-all supermoto/ice/trail/motoX bike
And I'd have to keep my '76 Bonneville and my '79 XT500 for sentimental reasons.

I'd find room for an airstrip on the 400 acres for a J3 for slo-n-low, and a Vans R4 for sport flyin'

The L-71 was the 427ci 435hp motor with the 3x2 barrel carbs. There is an old street race 69 camaro that runs around Long Island with that motor and has been since the 70's, fast as fuck.

The cobras were either 427 side oiler motors or 428 Cobra Jets (although not advertised as such). The 429 Super Cobra Jet was researved for Torinos, mustangs, and pickup trucks. The Shelby mustangs were 302s with solid lifters making 271 hp.
