no not really, just wanted to say welcome back aris, you've been missed, you seem to be one of only a few here who apreciate both vintage and naked bikes. I'm still working on my cb750f but have been riding it around more, actually yesterday I made an almost tragic mistake, I was working on the bike and forgot to put the bolts back on the seat luckily my fat ass was enought to keep it in possision in the corners . happy motoring
Andy I'm amazed that you managed to find this picture on the net!
This trivia was really hard but just finding this picture makes you a winner to me
The motorcycle was a private project, it was named BUT (means purpose or aim, in French) and was raced in order to prove the advantage of this design.
I ve always been watching the various designs of alternative chassis and front ends on motorcycles and this was a nice example.
In the link you found you can see more pics of the bike in various stages of development and with official sponsoring from TOTAL, th emajor French lubricants manufacturer.
Unfortunately the effort didn't really make it any further. I remembered the name of the bike from old magazines I read many years ago and tried to find a picture of it to make a nice trivia.
BTW, look at the 'DiFazzio' link in this page. It's a very interesting design that I have already used in another trivia sometime ago. I was surprised to see it on this site though!
Silentneko, I'm back from holidays for good and we'll have more nice trivia and I hope to create more traffic in the Naked forum as well!
Make sure to bolt your saddle next time
I once lost mine from my Honda C50 on a big bump and had to go back and get it
I'm really glad to see you didn't have much trouble getting on your bike again after your little accident.
I just had my bike stolen in front of me and I couldn't do anything... :( The thief was too fast and covered in a mask. It's not the first time it happened to me and I'm really pissed o**. So do you know any good GPs devices or protection I could use? Please, let me know.
Hey everybody. So I work for a tow company and we impounded this bike. Employees are allowed to purchase any vehicle that has been sitting at our impound for an extended period of time for $500 flat. It's most likely inoperable as i believe it was abandoned but there is no way to get it checked...
[b]What is the smallest object that has knocked you down in a corner?[b]
This question was suggested by photobug. Thanks for another great question!
I haven't had anything knock me down, but I think sand would definitely do it and that's pretty small!
