A staple in the stable, the Pearl White 2009 Ducati 1198 is my superbike of choice and you can ride along in the majority of the motovlogs!
As one of the last analog bikes, it doesn’t have any rider aids or creature comforts. There’s no traction control, power limiting features, ABS, wheelie control, cruise control, heated grips/seat. The 1198 delivers a connection to the road, 170hp and simple Brembo hydraulic brakes.
The mod list is short and sweet, full Termignoni undertail exhaust, TST industries integrated LED taillight/turnsignals, and a Speedymoto open clutch basket. Tires are Dunlop Q3s until something better comes along..
The trustiest steed in the stable is the 2015 Honda Fury. One of the few factory built choppers it has a 21″ wheel out front and a tank that tapers down to create a nice flowing look. It’s fuel injected and built by Honda, offering a great daily ride experience.
The OEM Honda Boulevard short windscreen is installed, it rocks a Vance & Hines exhaust, and has integrated USB charging to power the phone and the Sena 10C on long rides. The OEM Metzler tires are still going strong.
Also known as the MSX125, my 2017 Grom is the little bike that could. Rapidly gaining cult status, the Grom is a great bike for anything but the highway.
We’ll just get right into it. 205 GY6 swapped, air shock, Trail Tech Vapor, Shorai lithium battery, LED light bar with a slick switchback LED strip for the rear, the frame is custom built from a chukus with some touches by Performance Welding Solutions, and the paint is an OEM Lamborghini color. It’s the fastest one anywhere around me with a verified 80 on GPS and 16s in the 1/4 mile. It’s impossible to take this bike out and not wear a stupid grin the whole ride.
