RSBFS Spring Updates 2011!

First of all, we hope you enjoyed our April Fools fun last week. We had a blast putting it together and I think everyone enjoyed it for the most part. Anyone pick up one of those beauts?

While here in the Pacific Northwest spring has yet to really make an appearance, I know proper riding weather is returning to most of the country as we speak. The guys have already posted some fantastic examples in the past couple of weeks to fill empty garage space and we look forward to seeing what else pops up in April and May -- which are historically the most active months on our website. Here are some updates that haven't made it to this site and we think you'll enjoy.

Meet-up at West Coast Moto Jam AMA Pro Races in Sonoma this May?

West Coast Moto Jam, Sears Point, SonomaIn May the AMA road racing series comes to Sonoma at the West Coast Moto Jam, and RSBFS is going to be in attendance! A group of us are actually riding down the west coast on our bikes and I'm hoping to organize a brief ride from the track to Lagunitas Brewing in Sonoma on Saturday afternoon. I'm buying the first round, so if you're in the area please join us! RSVP ahead so I can estimate if we need a reserved area. If anyone would like one of our shirts hand delivered that day I'll discount to just $10 at the event! S/L/XL still available.


We'd like to reintroduce two of our primary sponsors on Rare Sport Bikes For Sale, SpeedyMoto and Tyga USA. SpeedyMoto produces top shelf aftermarket parts for late model Ducati's, and Tyga USA is a recent entry to our shores providing many brand new upgrade products for all modern sport bikes and many older two strokes as well. We thank our sponsors for their continued support and welcome new partnership opportunities. Please email me for our latest media guide and pricing if interested.

Tyga USA


And no update would be complete without a heartfelt Thank You to our readers. All of us at RSBFS, RSB, and CSBFS sincerely appreciate you reading our sites, commenting on our picks, and submissions to our sites. We love what we do and without you our work would not be possible. Thank you!

W$$ Aspirations? 2009 Factory Triumph 675

W$$ Aspirations?  2009 Factory Triumph 675

Here is the cure, if you have the itch to test the waters of WSS racing.  I'm assuming that would apply to almost no RSBFS readers (we can dream though) but I'm sure there might be a race bike collector or two that might be interested.  This little 675 isn't cheap though.  The starting bid is $150,000 and the BIN price is $200,000.  Yikes, is that what it costs to run mid pack in WSS ?  Now time for me to get on my soap box.  I don't know if that price is reasonable for a WSS race bike or not.  What I do know is that for a bike of that price you have to advertise the darn thing correctly. 

There is this from the auction:

I AM CURRENTLY ONLY OFFERING THIS (1) PICTURE OF THE BIKE DUE TO THIS PIC HAS ALREADY BEEN RELEASED IN THE NATIONAL PRESS RELEASES AND I DONT WISH TO RELEASE OTHER PHOTOS AT THIS TIME.

What?  This isn't the Holy Grail.  This isn't even a championship winning bike.  It is a very nice race bike that I'm sure a lot of people would love to own. For that asking price show us some darn pictures of what she's got.  I was expecting some serious race bike porn when I came across this auction!  In the sellers defense there is a lot of text info on what has been done to the bike.  It's a  lengthy text so you'll have to check out the auction for all the details. 

Ian is here to hook you up though.  I found some BE1 Racing test footage from 08.  Not exactly the same bike but should be pretty close.

And here is a link to a Flickr account with a bunch of photos of the team and bike.

Now wrapped up in this whole auction is something about a charity event and the bike being donated for the event.  My weary brain can't quite figure out what exactly is up.  If you can figure it out feel free to post in the comments.  .

2002 Triumph Daytona 955i Centennial Edition in IL

2002 Triumph Daytona 955i Centennial Edition in IL

Here is something a little different.  1 of 200 made.   The CE edition differs from the standard 955i in several ways:

Aston Green color which is was only availabe on the CE

Some carbon bits including a hugger and tank inlays

Single sided swing arm

Forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods and forged aluminum pistons.  Result is more hp compared to the standard 955i

 

This might be a nice opportunity to pick up a limited edition bike with some nice upgrades at a very reasonable price.  The seller is asking $4700 and the bike is listed on Craigslist.
