  • SWTK - If you could take a bike back in time

    I was reading an article about some of the classic, seminal bikes - and it got me wondering about what sort of bike I'd take back in time if I wanted to really blow their socks off about what they could expect in the future. What current model bike would you take back in time to really impress people?

    Mine would be the MV Agusta F4 1000 312 R.

            I'd take my 636 back to the early 1950's and go see my old man

                      Surely if you could move vehicles in time you would save the hassles, go back, grab one new, pop some period contis and bling on it, then bring it back

                      Thinking about it, I'd take back something like a britten.
                      Light years ahead in design, something you could easily reverse engineer.
                      How far back do you want to take it? Dawn of motorcycling?

                          I was thinking take a ride down the great wall of china on say...a motard...

                          lol

                          Not much point in taking a sports bike back too far. No roads to ride it on

                          Oooohhh.....

                          It would have to be a Banshee.

                          heh heh heh...

                            Yeah ^^ Y2K bike (Bell jetranger gas turbine powered) for just the sheer hell of "get that up ya".

                            Busa would come second, you know, in case I wanted to actually ride the bloody thing anywhere.
