I was just reading about you on Kill Boy a couple weeks ago. Welcome to our little party. I think you'll find that we have a wide selection on extremely talented people both in regards to motorcycles and about any other major profession you can think of.

My wife said I'm good to go on a trip to the Dragon this spring. I'm looking forward to it.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Can you point us at some links to pics of your bike?

I have a '78 GL 1000 at my disposal.... just waiting to be torn into.

Hello and welcome. Looking forward to seeing some pics of CYBORG.

no, but i have seen the video. one damn good rider. i've ridden an 1800 in the twisties, and they really do handle extremely well for a bike of that size and weight.

Very unique bike cyborg. I think it's great when someone takes a different route on the traditional bike platform.

Welcome to the site. Nice bike, and I noticed it does not look like Jean Claude Van Damme, and it does not look like it would speak with a cheesy French accent either...

THANKYOU.....I THINK. i liketo think it has more of an english cafe' flair then a french cafe' thing. in anycase it works for me. i have over 250,000 miles on her, and she still treats me good. she did come between me and my last 3 wifes.....but i made the right choice

That is funny. My wife tells me all the time I spend more time with the bike than her.

No worries, it was a compliment. Hmmm.... can you email me your information, like how to contact and a short blurb on your bike. I know someone who might be interested in review it.
