  Nice enough, very trick but for me, once again, the donor bike's cooler


Yep I agree, mine was red and black 87, picked it up the evening before I went to the Is of Man.  PX my Gpz 900r for it, absolutely loved it. 

Standard examples are as rare as hen's teeth.

Nah think they fucked that up with that back end. Looks way too short and stubby. With that engine I would think that bike is nearly wider than it is long 🤣

Its no the captain fuckin sensible bike thread ya fud, it’s the cool bike thread.  Jesus!


Its all about the look, its all about universal cool – not whether the bike is a practicable commuter, how good it is at negotiating puddles, whether the ergonomics are comfortable or not or what the fuel economy is or fuel range.    FFS!

For fucks sake!  It’s the cool bike thread! 
From the head post.

Post what you reckon is cool.  Call it out if you think it’s uncool.
So comments are welcome, but try and remember this is neither the bling bike thread or the ideal all year round feccin commuter thread.

Look quit the petty squabbling - what about Allen's Kawasaki?
I mean how fantastic is that?  How does he do it - time and time again.  What a fella!
I do feel, he should create a nice 1350 badge as a wee finshing touch, to replace the 900 badge on the side cover. 

I think he should offer me a test ride too!   Anyway I love it.  I think its cool, and it will certainly get noticed by both ordinary punters and bikers.  Its super cool, and nicely understated too.

Why don’t you start ‘The practicable, reliable and dependable commuter’ thread then?  There you can discuss things like, most practicable mud guards with respect to how they perform on passing through dirty dirty puddles, windshields, heated grips and underwear, rubber footpegs, topboxes, economy and ease of maintenance.

 That has to be, quite possibly, the ugliest and most uncool production bike that I’ve ever had the displeasure of having to look at.


I mean, If you parked that up outside your local artisan, hipster, wanky café, some of the ponsey customers would probably throw up on the spot, and the usual pretentious fud of an owner might just ask you to move it across the street.


That thing is the absolute polar fucking opposite of cool.  Jesus! 



Pass me the petrol can and matches please. :evil

  Not exactly my bag but not everyone judges cool by what would be appreciated at a hipster café.
