Sun flare on a cold morning in Missouri. Broughing it with @suzieheartbreak on the 2014 #MotorcycleCannonball with visible breath - I think this was the day we stopped in Wal-Mart for thermal underwear and a gillie suit! Photo by @revivalan our partner

Things I'm grateful for: the opportunity to own and/or ride some of the world's most remarkable motorcycles. I dug this 1925 supercharged Zenith-JAP land speed record bike out of Argentina. I'd looked at photos with @jaylenosgarage around 1990, and it took years to track down the actual owner, and make a deal. It took more years to track down the amazing history of #SuperKim and the Sigrand family. It's current owner mechanically restored her, but wisely left the patina intact; I got a brief ride at #Montlhery a few years ago. Unforgettable!

Things I'm grateful for: friends who let me ride their kickass bikes! One of my favorite #ShinyaKimura #coachbuilt creations- his #MVAgusta. He encouraged me to spank it, so I did, and it proved a rock-solid rocket. But those looks - simply amazing, as was the noise. Photo by @menacing_ayu

Oldest motorbike in town - my 1902 Clement Autocyclette. I bought it thinking I'd crash the NYC #TweedRun, but that never happened again. Purchased in Paris at the @bonhams1793 Grand Palais sale (bargain!) and brought home in a bicycle box after I stuck the motor in a suitcase. Total air freight = $50. Now it sits beneath a #Thangka the #DalaiLama gave my grandmother in 1960...

ilikerad : @sevenshortagrand seriously. That's the best thing I'll see all day
thevintagent : Thanks Ian - I'd need to revive the pup first. I've thought about doing the Pioneer run, got plenty of friends who do! @beaming62

Can we just talk about @casecompany's racing #NortonAtlas? With the lightweight Curtis frame? So much goodness here, especially the #OregonMotorcycleRoadRacing sticker.

Seen at the @whitneymuseum - art from the #RaleighChopper! #RobertAdams photo from 1972, part of the current exhibit of the Whitney collection.

jonathankeenan : The best, worst bike ever.
cj_yossie : @jonathankeenan Grifter was the best/worst bike ever 😂
speirmoor : Thats a MK I Chopper. Looks like gears and brakes have been eliminated. Perhaps in the quest for greater speed as they were always a bit of an anchor
mcgregor_ewan : I had the little brother 'tomahawk' when I was a kid, crashed and knocked my self out on it. Ended up in hospital for the night. I want a Chopper now. Never too old! There's one in a shop window display in Noho NYC. I've got my eye on it!!
partdirection : I've got a silver Mk1 I rescued from a skip in Kilburn. The forks were snapped off (didn't seem to be any sacrificial goolies on the shifter) but the rest of the bike was mint, so I guess it was decommissioned back in the day and never got repaired. 5 minutes of welding and I was transported back to 1976
weescotsman68 : Loved the chopper but always got the front wheel stuck in a manhole cover. So traded up to a Raleigh grifter.
doctor_b._rat : I had one when I was a kid but my sister fell off it and split her chin open. I was never allowed to ride it again! Coolest thing I ever had.
speirmoor : @mcgregor_ewan if the one in Noho doesn't work out I have a couple of Mk2's in Qns. Complete but some assembly required

Crazy thing coming up at the @bonhams1793 December 10 sale - a Sunbeam S8 with a Porsche motor! Built in 1966 by an engineer; runs and drives and leaves long black streaks in the road...
sidsux : Looks good. Car motors usually look too big in bikes
mr_seannguyen : Looks fricken awesome !
symphony_of_shrapnel : @thevintagent so this is pretty much like the vw conversions a lot of guys were doing with /2s in the 60s. They don't go for too much money, but since this is porsche who knows?
