Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Post a photo of your bike!

It was mentioned that we had no dedicated thread with photos of our bikes so I thought I'd get the ball rolling!
Open a free account at Photobucket or similar, upload your photos and copy/paste the IMG link to this thread.

Here's mine - sometime early summer 2014. Mirrors have been exchanged for bar-end-versions since then.

Left a Suzuki SV1000 or such and to the right a KTM990. Neither of them mine... I like the CB most.

I hope he has, rebuilding mine is costing a small fortune and I'd still be amazed if it ended up that clean!

This is mine, yes the topbox is coming off from the grab handle before anyone says something. I can't wait until I'm able to ride this on the road after I've passed my A2 licence test next year.

This is my Little Donkey. It's an everyday, all-weather hack and experimental test mule. The mileage is creeping up; it's about to have its fourth rear tyre fitted so far this year! Still does 110mph and 200 miles on 15.5 litres of fuel. One of the BEST bikes I've ever sat my arse upon.

It could do with a wash.

Nice 'invisible' repair on the end can....

Where's the fan override switch gone? Slightly out of shot, or so 'in keeping' with its surroundings,that I missed it?!

Here's TANGO. As my good friend keeps reminding me, she's "an old shitter"!! But then he would say that. She was a cheap hack and he's spending a Kings Ransom on his 'restoration' (a.k.a. How many brand new bits can you bolt on an original frame!)

TANGO's done about 13,500 miles and rides as nice as she looks.

Note the 'extra' front mudflap (cut from a rubber shoe sole!) and the additional rear mudguard, made from an old builders bucket! Both were fitted by the previous owner.

The end can hasn't been repaired as there's nowt wrong with it - it looks perfect, almost factory, just covered in stickers and shite. The fan override switch has been removed from the clocks after it let in water. Which was odd for a waterproof switch. New 'un here, pic takn just now.

Perhaps I should get that graphic and apply it 'Badseeds style'!

Perhaps the half a tube of white silicon wasn't quite enough for your switch?!

Ha ha! Yeah! Perhaps get some old plastics and a tank cover as Tango is far too nice to ruin - I have some set aside for a forthcoming Viz project.

And yes, half-a-tube of decorator's mastic didn't work. I put several sachets of silica gel inside the clocks and use incandescent bulbs, still get a bit of misting though.
