Default Spotted a black Bird today.

I have never really seen one of these bikes in the wild before. By my surprise it was parked in front of me.

Pretty common sight here in the UK - nice piece of machinery to ride.

That's not mine. The rectifier went out after 50,000 miles, yes thats right. Waiting for the replacement to come in. I have seen 4 others in Indy. 2 when I was at last years Moto GP.

Were the pics from Loop for Life? A buddy and I both rode in it. Great time. My first organized ride. I ride a orange 93 900 and my friend has a black 97 900. I would like to get a Blackbird as my next bike. We've actually ran in to two other guys that ride the 'birds.

The Blackbird is a very fun ride. The power is awesome and rides as smooth as silk. Have had mine for 2 years now and love it.
