RAT BIKES

I love rat bikes, as long as their not mine. This one is ridden to work every day that there is no ice on the streets . If you have a picture of one I’d love to see it.

To me that looks like a normal Harley (oil stains typical) owned by a guy with really chapped nuts.

This FZ1 is more what I think of when I think 'rat bike':

She is all better now, thank you. Maybe in a few weeks you, Old Biker (Dave) and I can get out for nice ride somewhere. I’m open as of June 1.

That’s an R1, not an FZ1. Look at the swing arm, headers, tank, clutch cover, and ram air intakes in the frame. Looks typical of the 07-08 R1.
