A 700cc mo-ped that weighs under 200 pounds! Sounds like fun, at least until you run out of gas.
Nice pictures, very well exposed under tough lighting conditions.

I'm not really into motorbikes, but these images are great under what looks like hard lighting conditions. Nice job.

Cool.

BTW, we've got a new Transportation Forum we just added recently, so that members would have a forum dedicated to photos of cars, planes, trains, motorcycles, etc. So, you may want to consider sharing them there.

Very nice, I bet it is really expensive today!

I use to have a Honda 350cc 4 cylinder motorcycle that had virtually no vibration at any speed. It had a hard time keeping up with freeway traffic, but it was an amazing around town bike.

HUH? OK, maybe if the freeway you are talking about is the German Autobahn. Mine would do an honest 115MPH, (maybe more, but i chickened out) and out accelerate Vettes in high-gear from 70MPH. Of course, I weighed in at under 140lbs at the time.

Thanks to all. Jim I'll do that as well as here as some here are interested and may not look there.

The lighting is horrible for photography at this place. They look great to the naked eye as the lighting is just enough to light up the chrome and highlights. Some of these were taken with a Kodak DX6490 and no flash and some with the K10D and kit lens using the on board flash. I actually like the ones without the flash but the shutter speed was such that too many were blurred. Should have taken my 50mm f/1.7 or f/1.8 or f/1.4 but I figured the 18mm would get me there as I didn't have to back up as much to get the whole bike in the lens. Oh well...this gives me an excuse to go back...doesn't it?

Wonderful piece of machinery and nicely photographed.

I am really enjoying these pictures and the information associated with each cycle.
