We are blessed with some nice canyon twisties in this part of the country, infact , the same roads that Joe Leonard, Cal Rayborn, Don Vesco and Ralph White to drop a few names, who honed their substantial pavement skills thrashing up and down the same canyon ribbons. So we appreciate a good Cafe Racer in the traditional sense. Both of these bikes from the same genius Lakic Design. Now a nice Triumph, set up with all the right bits is always a real pleasure to experience and very appropriate for the conditions. The Honda 650 V-twin, on the other hand, was never considered even close to the task from it's inception but this one sure looks the part. What a transformation from the world's ugliest motorcycle to this hot rod. I hope it works as good as it looks.
