Modern bikes need a little more eighties Japanese craziness! Turbos! Dorky looking fairings with built in tape decks!
Well, maybe a turbo here and there.
I went to the Austin local Roadrunners motorcycle group meet up at Cheer Up Charlies on east 6th. Making appearances were mostly a bunch of sweet looking vintage Brit bikes, but the stand out to me was an immaculate Kawasaki gpz750 turbo. When I say turbo, I mean it. I don't know what car this turbo came out of, but it looked pretty crazy squeezed in behind that engine. I like it, I like it a lot. I know that the benefits of having a turbo are only seen at speeds that I would rarely be going, but it's still cool.
