Big toys for big boys...

...and girls. More women are taking up riding motorcycles on their own all the time.

Anyway, here are some new ones that caught my discerning eye:


Introducing Die Moto, a custom-built performance diesel motorcycle capable of running on diesel, biodiesel, or straight vegetable oil (SVO) fuels.



By taking the minimalist supermotard racing concept, then adding Ducati’s unrivaled twin-cylinder power and Superbike heredity, the Hypermotard delivers a remarkable experience.



Named after the first engine mounted on the prototype, 984 C3 2V, the Vyrus is powered by the new 1000DS. Each bike is unique, hand made in Italy and personalised for each owner.

Pretty nifty stuff...

Interesting looking motorcycles.

I know I won't be buying my own "big toy," but I sure do love it when someone gives me a ride on theirs!! "Oh...deer!!" ;-}

They look like fun, camo. I haven't ridden a motorcycle for years. Probably since Meridian - and I don't even want to think how long ago that was. And that was inside a house!

Ms RightWing:
The Die(sel) Moto is based on a BMW.

Bunny:
They are interesting looking...but for now I'll stick with what I've got.

Cassandra:
Inside a house? Please tell me more...

That Vyrus is pretty cool but I can't figure what all that stuff is all over it! Just for looks?

Hawkeye®:
Pretty much, yeah. :-)

Maggie:
A car that looks like a motorcycle; do you mean like THIS?

Beerme:
Stuff all over it? Swingarms, frame, shocks, exhaust, etc.

And what's the damage for one of those hand-made Eye-talan babies?
