japan bikes are awsome!!!

Oh man. Bikes in Japan are freakin' sweet. These people know a good bike when they see one. Sure most ride scooters. But from there, the real motorcycles are in order of:
1: enduro/supermotos
2: naked sport (UJMs)
3: sport bikes, which are like butique bikes in the states.

For every RR out there, there is a dosen CB. And for ever CB there is 2 dozen scooters. And from there its an uncountable amount of bicycles.

Here are my favorites:
Honda | バイク | FTR F'n sweeet little 223cc single. Looks like a flat tracker. I want one. Saw one with some Mugen parts. Very trick.

Honda | バイク | CB400 SUPER FOUR / SUPER BOL D'OR
I don't think I need to explain this want on this forum. Of coarse I prefer the superfour to the bold'or.

last but not least. Hornet250. Who wouldn't want a 16,000 rpm 250 four?

I'd have one each of the fours........not to ride, just to look at.

The Moto's were catching on BIG when I left Okinawa in 2002, I thought those were cool as hell, and I have never, never seen anyone ride a wheelie on a cooter for a mile with a helmet on thier neck as I did following one in Oki.

Also I loved the Bozo's, they would taunt the cops in cars, and the cops would give chase, and the bozo's would cut lanes and stop and wave at the cops. I do not know why the cops would chase them, unless they to were on a M/C.

I could not stand the exhaust the Bozo's had on their Bikes, could be heard for miles!!!!!!!!!!!

They have a factory SPRINGER on a Steed also over there, I have not seen here. They copy anything Harley does for their cruisers.

I Can and will ride anything!

I can here a few two strokes out my window right now. They are out tonight!

I saw a CR250 running around. Not turned SM. Just enduro style. But it still about gave me wood at the thought of running around it a crowed city.

Here in Indiana, all it would take to get my KTM XC200W plated is for me to go to the local license branch, pay the sales tax on the bike, get a title, and get a plate. My friend has a plate for his KTM XC250 2stroke. All KTMs are registered as street bikes.

F!!!!!! Here is another awsome one. Not sure why they call it the B-style. Sure looks more like a D-style to me. Ducati.

Honda | バイク | VTR | 主要装備|B-STYLE
