    What do you do when you’re at a stoplight and a police officer pulls up next to you?

    ***edit- i re- uploaded the pic w/the vin covered- up. I didn’t realize it was visible. Nobody said anything to me about it but I don’t want anybody’s information going out

    Just saw this bike on the way home. Poor guy must have only this one bike for commuting.

    I nod to the cops. We ride with some out here.

    This guy was "resourceful" in keeping his bike going. I worked at finding something nice to say, but did.

    When you have that kind of money tied up in a machine of this quality, custom made parts are to be expected.

    Good on him, riding a piece of crap is better than not riding at all

    My first bike was a similar story, not to this extent though. It was a ZX2R and after a few crashes it became a streetfighter (this was before streetfighters were a thing)

    When I started drawing buildings 20 years ago, I couldn't afford to leave the house. A friend gave me an old bike that he had in his barn for 5 years. Corroded wheels, the dog ate the seat, etc. and I fixed it up. We were going to sell it and split the money, but it ran so good I bought him out. Well, not exactly. "I'll pay you some day." "Here is the title." For the price of a couple of gallons of gas, I was entertained.

    I still have the bike.

    And it looks damn good! I may now be inspired to get my ass out to the garage and get the cams installed correctly on my '81 GPz550 project. Hell, I've been working on it (off and on--mostly off lately) since 2008.

    As long as it's been maintained and everything is in servicable specs, making it safe to ride...

    Most times, bikes like this aren't.

    In Arizona, there is no vehicle inspection. There are no "Unsafe" vehicles...you can pretty much ride/drive anything here. You don't even need to have tread on the tires, or even DOT approved rubber.

    What I like doing is bringing the idle up a little then letting the clutch out then back in just so the bike jumps a little then turning my head away from them like I do not know they were there. Every now and then you get a cop that will do it with their car for grins.
    Do not do this in St Louis City because the cop will pull a gun on you and kick you over while you are still on the bike.

    It's not really domestic, it's Aussie owned but British made. There was a lot of "For Aussie" marketing but it was never big here.

    I've had it a few times and it wouldn't hold a candle to a decent Aussie beer.

    I wouldn't even know where they sell it. You never see it for sale here. Neither in a bottle shop or in a pub.
