I've always thought about that... I've never really seen a bicycle with HID's on it before. Only LED's or halogens.
So that should be awesome/unique



It is totally going to be both of that. Hopefully I can get a longer range and better speed with a new battery I ordered. I'm thinking about using the old one just for the headlights so that if it does die, I can still ride back home.

The future is scary, so I'm gonna hold on to the old stuff if I can. That's mainly why I collect these things.

Ahh, Yamaha! I've heard some good things about their dirt bikes. That should be a very fun bike! I'm actually thinking about
getting something similar sometime in the future. But as of now, although I've already got a motorcycle, I'm purchasing another one here very soon,
possibly within the next two or three weeks. I'll come back to this topic after I take a picture of my first and also second bike.

Both these bikes need repairs, but I plan to fully restore my 1976 Grand Prix (the red one) at the time that picture was taken was when I first bought it... Unfortunately I used it as. A daily rider and it quickly needed repairs because Michigan roads are absolute shiit. that jet black cruiser bike is getting an engine once it's restored. I have more bikes I'll post pictures of eventually. These are just pictures I had on my phone right now.

I just bought a 2007 Yamaha 1100 V Star.

@icefoglights, that thing is a beast! My friend also owns a Yamaha V-Star, but it's the 650cc version. I think
it's also from the same year though. I'll have to take a picture of it sometime.

Just bought my second motorcycle today! Very interesting bike, with more LED's than my older one.
Most of the dash lights are LED with this one, which really caught me off guard. And with this one,
it's got 8 blue LED lights that line up with the tachometer. Really, really cool. Much smaller, more
agile bike, despite a bigger, completely different engine. Exhaust backfires like crazy when I downshift
as well, and there is a high pitched loud whistling sound from the intake when you give it throttle.
Loud dual tail exhausts, and more LED's as brake lights. Here's the thing... the brake light blinks five times
when you hit the brakes, and the brake light contains very interesting integrated turning indicators. I'm going
to video this when I get the chance, to reveal what bike it is.

Is this a new bike or used?  If used, I'd bet if you poked around the rear fender, you'd probably find a "BackOff XP" or "Magic Strobe" module that flashes the brake light.

Magic strobe is the closest to being similar to what my bike does, but not quite. The bike is used, from 2007, but with
a lot of modifications. The integrated turn signals do a strange pattern that I can't quite explain, so I plan
on making a video of it all.
I forgot to mention... the bike has a modified license plate location, as well as a modified LED spot light that shines
on the license plate. Very, very different from my other bike. Still has halogen headlights though, but of course, not
for long. ;)

Just picked up another V Star.  This time a 2005 650 Silverado that's in pristine condition.  Two years older but about 30,000 less miles on it.  It's less of a beast than the 1100 too, which I like.  Biggest plus is that it's located where I can actually ride it regularly.

I'm gonna shoot another video here soon of my bike, and I'll post a link to it on this thread. Right
now it's not safe to run it. Needs coolant very badly, due to a previous stator replacement.

This week it was time to dig out the snow tires and put the bike into winter storage.  Managed to put 256 miles on it since I got my license and the bike back in August.

I realized I've never posted a pic, so here it is...
