Ian Cooper: Here's my 1972 BMW R75 with toaster tank and Krauser bags. First twin I've
owned and a treat to ride. So far its had minimal work done to her and with
only 21,000 miles its not even broken in yet. Looking forward to some longer
Jim Graham: Two of my favorite bikes together.
The XL350R was the perfect enduro bike to leave at my cottage and exploring the Haliburtons on. The CB1100F was the fastest superbike in 1983 with a sub 11 second quarter mile time and had the looks to match the speed, it was a great sport bike.
Dan Graham: The bike is a TZ700 Yamaha that Dan used to race, and this picture was taken in Quebec with Steve Bond right behind Dan, back in the mid 70's. Steve is the current Bike columnist for the Toronto Star.
Geoff Collins: 1970 Triumph TR6 with 750 Nikasil barrels, 90 degree offset crankshaft,
Yamaha RZ500 forks, modified Yamaha fairing, Honda front wheel, alloy rims,
custom Hindle SS exhaust system. Very light, very fast and smooth as an
air-head BMW. More info at www.offsetcrank.com
Phil: Here is a picture of myself at the end of our trip to Dawson City,
Yukon, 14,000 km in the saddle taken north of North Bay on the way
south from the far north. The old BMr was the only bike to survive
without any major repairs on the trip.
John La Flair: Here's a pic of the 1977 Yamaha 650 standard and some adoring fans. It's my favouite because it's light and easy to handle. It has wire wheels and looks like a bike should. It even has some electrical problems from time to time. No wonder I like it.
Brian Lithgow: Packing up and ready to roll out after
another great rally at Paris 2006
Mike McCartney: The Black Shadow was acquired from Michael's Motorcycles in St. Louis, Missouri in December of 2006. Mike Kiernan is the fellow who acquired the McBride Cycle collection just prior to their closing their doors last year.
Alistair Frisby: Joined OFY in 1995 owning a Triumph Bonneville. Several bikes later he has now reached a balance of three Triumphs (two of which are triples). Having riden since 17 and owned a variety of machines (not all legal or safe), he now divides his time between a 900cc Trident and 1972 TR6.
Greg Doyle: The smaller bike is a 600cc Yamaha Radian circa 1986. First year of manufacture. You could ride to Vancouver on
it. The second is a 2002, 1100cc, Yamaha V-star, Silverado. The pipes are loud.
Craig Smith: The Cub left the factory on March 1st 1963 as a T20.
The engine and frame numbers match, and as can be seen it has an aftermarket tank, mudguards and silencer.
An original tank, alloy mudguards and original silencer are in the process of being fitted.
