IMO, motorcycles are pretty manly. Especially vintage motorcycles and/or crusiers. That said, even though this board is titled "Cars" I'm posting pics of my bike.

2005 Triumph Speedmaster

Made in England. Its only 865CC but can still haul ass.

nice bike. ya i think 800cc is more than enough as long as rider isn't a bigger guy. i have a 805cc suzuki intruder or vs800 as its sometiems called. it was my first bike learned on it not too big to learn on and still good enough or big enough to ride 5 years later. i kinda wish i woulda got a heavier model as mine has that classic cruisre look strippe down only weighs like 450lbs kinda wish i had another hundred or two pounds on the bike for windy days but you dont need a 1800cc bike for that weight. i had considered getting something bigger but for me 150lbs i cant imagine ever needing mroe than 800cc worth of power.

Don't laugh but I used to have a '67 Sears 106SS back in High School. Everybody else had Triumphs, Harleys, Yamahas and Hondas, but I had a Sears.   I lusted after a Norton 750 commando though.

Triumphs... there is just something about them. I almost bought a Speed Triple, such a nice machine. But didn't quite click with me. My current ride is the Ducati Streetfighter S. Absolutely brilliant machine!

Had a zx6r before that and cbr250rr as my first bike. Still love inline 4, but that L twin of Ducati just has so much attitude hehe.

Of course bikes are manly! Riding a bike that can go fast and being so exposed to anything that might go wrong, it's about balls... And balls are manly!

Very simplified of course, but yes riding a bike is manly. Its a dream of mine that will have to wait due to financials, but i'm sure I'm gonna get one in a few years!
