    The Coolest Bike You Have Photographed

    What is the coolest bike you have photographed that you own, or wish you could own?

    Maybe someday I will have one these for my living room. The Brough Superior SS100. Only 3048 made between 1919 -1940. Brough Superior motorcycles have always been rare and expensive. Because of their connection with Lawrence of Arabia, their high quality of fit and finish, and their reputation for reliability and race victories, they are among the most collectible motorized vehicles. In 2007, prices ranged from $40,000 to more than $3,000,000 USD.

    These are definitely the coolest racing bikes I have photographed.

    Casey Stoner's 2007 MotoGP World Championship Ducati.

    Mike Hailwood's Isle of Man Winning Ducati. In 1978, after an 11 year hiatus from motorcycling, Hailwood performed a now legendary comeback at the Isle of Man TT. Few observers believed the 38 year old would be competitive after such a long absence. Riding on a Ducati 900SS, he was not only competitive, but managed a hugely popular win. He previously won the Isle of Man 11 times before this race.

    Hmmm, I'm not one for sidecars but I might make an exception for this rig. Pics taken at the Hanford swap meet in May, 2003.

    Indian with sidehack, about 1914

    Another bike I could just possibly make room for in the garage is this bike. Picture taken in March, 2007 at the Solvang Motorcycle Museum.

    This one is not a museum piece. It lives in my garage. Here it is getting ready for an overnight camping trip.

    Well , This one dosen't hold a candle to all of these but it was one of my all time favorite bikes and I restored this one last year. It is now gone and so are my Honda CT90's , but I love my BMW.
