    currently a moutain bike by a company called giant. the back gears seem to be out of alignment (it won't go past 4th) and I think the rear wheel might be bent slightly. the front light got nicked, so it's got a pound shop LED light held on with insulation tape.

    but hopefuly soon I'm going to be riding one of theese, probably in red, although if I can get the black instead, I will.

    Got this pic off the Web, but my bike looks exactly like this one (same color, accessories, etc... .
    [​IMG]
    2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 2000 Classic LT. Btw, by 2000, I mean a 2053 cc engine, the largest V on the market.

    The only maker with a bigger engine is Triumph with a 2294 cc engine, I believe, but theirs is an inline design. Still, a 2294 engine must be a monster.

    I'll admit, I was a little humbled when I first saw this baby, the thought of handling this beast on the road. However, it's been one sweet ride.

    2009 Mazda6 V6 sSport trim.

    Daily driver for just a hair under 1 1/2 years. Paid extra for side-moulding. And it turned out to be money well spent. As for the engine, the power and torque of the V6 that acts like a V8 has come in handy far too many times to count. Definitely worth the extra money compared to the 4-banger. And I still got her at a sweet price back when the economy was in the toilet.

    Yeah, fun to drive, and it'll carry a bunch of stuff. 240+ HP with a manual is generally fun to drive, unless you deal with daily stop-and-go traffic.

    2006 Scion xB

    Yes, it's a strange looking box. Yes a lot of ghetto teens like to pimp them out. I bought it because it's really roomy on the inside (I'm 6'3" 400 lbs and fit comfortably with my hats on), gets great gas mileage (around 35 highway if I don't use a lead foot), is a Toyota so it should be reliable if the accelerator doesn't get stuck, and it corners and drives like a go-kart. It gives you a higher ride of a small SUV, handling of a car, and it wasn't very expensive. It's perfect for living in suburbia, but when we sell our subdivision house in a few years and move to the country I'll probably sell it and buy a well used full size truck.

    Here's the same bike as before, but now set up for commuting and general hooning about;

    [​IMG]

    Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres (1.35"), Charge Spoon saddle on a micro-adjust Bontrager seatpost, ODI lock-on grips with Cane Creek lock-on bar ends. Properly flickable, very quick to change direction and more comfortable. Result! Next mods, when I've got the spare cash, will be a rigid fork and Avid BB7 disc brakes. I'm going for a pedal-powered supermoto feel. ;)

    I nearly lunched it on Saturday mind you. Skinny new tyres and an enthusiastic cornering technique led to the front letting go on a right hand turn across traffic. I thought I'd saved it, then the pedal dug in! I made it and even kept it upright, but it was more by luck than judgement. I honestly think that, if I hadn't fallen off of so many racing motorcycles, I would have crashed. But years of trying to hold up bikes with engines finally paid off! ;D

    I drive a 2006 Toyota 4Runner. I've changed a few things though from your typical soccer mom 4Runner. Let me know what you all think.
