I've heard those 1100 shadows have enough torque to pull a small car out of a ditch.

I love driving my E38. 2001 740i Sport. 4.4L V8.

I take it to the track from time to time for some high performance driving education courses.

My daily is a 2012 Ford Focus Hatch.

Re: What's your other car?

My other car is a motorcycle - a 1983 Honda Nighthawk. Here are a few beauty shots I took in my studio:

Smile Re: What's your other car?

I kinda stay in the same vein and stay with Jeeps,I have an older Wrangler,1990 second clutch,second re paint,third soft top,200,000+ miles and still running strong,have two harnesses in back to keep our two German Shepherds in back as they LOVE the wind.My wife switches between her Liberty and the new JGC but I kinda enjoy old faithful,really like other people's rides on here,but don't think my check book would run to that nice Corvette or the cool Challenger,have to admit those mustang convertibles are sweet too.

Nice bike! Is that original or restored?

I've got a 84' Nighthawk S. They are great old bikes.

That's a repaint - a Christmas gift from my brother in law. The original paint had bleached a bit from 30 years of sun exposure, but the material underneath was in good shape. The seat is original - no recovering. The engine was repainted when the top end was removed to replace the rings and clean the pistons. The aluminum and chrome parts all polished up nicely with no other work needed.

The exhaust is original. I've since replaced the mirrors because, while large, they were flat and offered too little visibility. They weren't stock, anyway having been replaced by the previous owner. My brother in law also replaced the brake/clutch lines with braided ones and ran new spark plug wires since the old ones were showing signs of rot.

Not related to looks, I replaced the entire wiring harness less than a year after buying it because it developed a short in the headlight circuit. When I checked the condition of the rest of the wiring, I felt it was in my best interest to pull it all and run a fresh (though used) harness from a donor bike with far fewer miles on it. No issues since other than I had to swap a pair of coils last year.

Having said that, it wasn't in bad shape at all when I got it about 10 years ago - for the sum total of $650. Here's a shot from the day I brought it home in the rain at my old place:



In the photo below take a few days later, you can see the fading on the plastic body panels compared to the tank. The side panel on the left shown above looks better because it was usually shaded by the bike leaning on the kickstand. There was also a little dime-sized ding in the tank that was filled during the re-paint:
