    What got you into the wonderful world of SCI? Photo thread!

    Ok, I'm kind of bored...so lets see some pictures! What got you the exclusive membership in this club...post a photo either before or after...dont have a photo? A detailed description will work too!

    First up...'02 Honda 954RR, my new baby in May that year that replaced my street/track bikes (YZF1000 & a ZX-7), awesome bike, but it (and me almost) met an untimely demise playing kissyface with a guardrail. No 'after' photos but I hear it was almost unrecognisable post crash.

    Here's the cause of my membership in this club. 2000 Yamaha R6 with my beautiful wife posing on it.

    I was going aboug 85 in a 50 zone when I hit some bumps & gravel while leaned over pretty far. My first & last offroading experience.

    It was also unreckognizable after my crash.
    The R6 replaced my Ninja 1000R. After 10 years of riding my one and only crash put me in a wheelchair.

      In keeping with the motorcycle theme, here's my '83 Suzuki RM 125. I didn't get hurt on a motorcycle...



      ...but racing bicycles (BMX) in 1984.

            I was the passenger, the driver escaped with a cut on his ear.

                  I am trying to figure out a way to download the three to five minutes of video my wife managed to take of the paramedics trying to extract me from the 1965 Ford Econoline van I was riding in when we were hit head on. If I can find a way of doing this I will have to post a warning that the file is not for the faint-of-heart. [img]/forum/images/smilies/eek.gif[/img] They had to peel the top of the van back like a sardine can to get to me.

                  Wish me luck. [img]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

                        Curtis:

                        Oh man, that is one cool bike! I remember about 10 years ago the local Honda dealer had one of these...Brand New with about 20 miles on it. It had the Honda fairing package too in beige, that thing was tempting. Only thing was that it was used in some sort of motorcycle mechanic's school, so you knew it was ripped apart and put back together many, many times, so I passed on the novelty of getting it. Are those Ohlins shocks I see on the back of your bike?

                          Cool bike indeed. Much better than my first bike... an '81 Honda CX500 Custom. Those old Honda's could take a real beating. Reliable as hell.

                            It was so long ago, I cant even remember what kind of Gas Shocks those where, I do remember putting them on though, that and the 6 into 1 pipe, it sounded so sweet. That was one incredible motor on that bike, even at 130 mph it was completely smooth. I guess these bikes in good shape are worth some good money today, they are a collectors item. They only made these bikes 1979 and 1980 I believe. In 1981 they came out with the V 4s and they have kind of revolutionized what bikes are today. The Inline 6 was a little on the wide side. That bike was my baby, I bought it brand new up in Maine while I was in college. It was not too badly damaged in the wreck, I remember having to sell it out of my wheelchair, that and my 5 speed red Chevy Monza that I had at the time. Memories. Thanks guys for the compliment. Andy and Mike, those look like fine machines that you both had. Guess that CBX was the last Motorcycle I will ever ride.

                              Curtis, Gold and Blue colors on those shocks might have been Ohlins, the holy grail of suspension nowadays. Speaking of the V4's, those were something else, I had a V65 Sabre for a little bit, beater bike, but it still had a lot of things going for it with some 70K miles on it. What really pisses me off is that I have to sell a bike out of my wheelchair as well, my BMW, arrgh. Unless there is some way to bungee cord myself to it and have some outriggers that extend at a stop so it doesnt tip over [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]
