I just sold my last vehicle, a 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Raven.


Now I picked up a 1966 Triumph Bonneville 650 Custom Bobber. The 650cc engine was bored out to 680cc's. It has straight pipes and is a suicide shifter. It's probably the loudest thing I have ever heard. It also has a custom Harley sportster front end.

I need to paint it though, because the gas tank says "Old Dude" and I'm 21.

This is the 6th motorcycle I've owned. I plan on picking up a 250 2-stroke dirt bike up this weekend too, probably a 2001 cr250.






I'm probably paint it like a bright ferrari red and put a chrome skull on the suicide shifter

Ah crap, I should have known it was a vertical twin. Triumph never made a Boneville with anything other then that.

How difficult is it with the suicide shifter? I figure it'd be pretty out of the ordinary with the shifter being on the right side.

dang that is sweet, for me that would make the perfect to and from campus rides sweet.
exactly what i plan on



And demented, it took me 2 stop signs to get used to the "rear brake only" and "suicide shifter" thing. But now its all natural.

I have a Harley Sportster front brake system to put on, but its already super heavy. Though I really do need it for traffic.
