    I know some of yall must have bikes, street or dirt, post em up!

    Here's my 06' DRZ400. I also have a set of supermoto wheels for it but for some reason no pics with them on it. Oh and that yellow bike is the future "Mrs Smokinpiney's" DRZ. She kept "borrowing" mine so i found one for her lol.

    Wow, I love the vintage bikes and IP, that is a gorgeous ol' Triumph!

    Great looking bikes, fellas.....I've always wanted a custom bike built to mimic the old board track bikes/bobbers/café racer type, just never got around to building one.....

    Threads like this one make me want to get out there and do it!

    Here's my 02 drz400E. Added the required lights and such to get it inspected and plated. The performance of the E model and the convenience of the S model. This was in Turkey Bay, land between the lakes, KY. July 2013. went on to NE Georgia from there. IMG_451413983751084.jpeg

    1700 miles on the truck, 400 trail miles on bikes, 6 days. Good times.

    Keihn fcr flat slide, sure, how's $999 sound. Not sure on miles, no speedo/odometer. Only had a plate 2 summers. I'd guess 3500, 70% trail. Had bike since new. Had to unplug the TPS in Georgia, first prob it'd ever had.

    Fwiw, the TPS is a common problem. It's only job in this application is to lean the bike at idle for emissions. We all understand that the epa's answer is always leaner at the expense of longevity and performance; same as new saws. Unplug the harness under the seat and of you go. Mine was leaning at all times intermittently causing a lean pop scenario.

    Six cylinders, water cooled with reverse. What's not to like?

    My fathers got an 88 with about 20k miles parked in the garage.

    Yes Mike, this one was a garage queen also. I am the second owner. Kind of amazes me when you think about the engineering level back in 88. It still runs sooooo sweet. I got her this past april and put about 6500 kms. on her this year. Soon getting ready to put her in hibernation for the long winter.

    I sold my last bike, a Honda Pacific Coast PC800, almost two years ago. With the trunk I added, she had as much cargo space as a Gold Wing, and I got 49mpg highway. Here she is, I miss her (sniff sniff):
