It was one of those days, the Rivian SUV this morning then all of these (including Dulcich in the Wreck Runner) on my way home.

Ninja ZX10R

She is indeed based on the 04/05 zx10r, but this one has a curious history. It carries a Muzzy's vin# instead of the Kawa one. It has pretty much their entire catalog of first gen parts on it as well, from lowering links to the lockup clutch. 

That's cool! Post a pic!

Here is my CBR600F3 back in the mid 90's with a Muzzy slip on :)


I'll have to get a few more with it outside, only ridden it twice since getting it done thus far due to rain and the heat shield breaking tabs on the hot side. Heat shield is back from tig work, so I'll have to get that put on tonight so I can ride to work over the weekend.

Like the F3... I had one in the Smokin' Joe livery...

Love the turbo Muzzy ZX10R!

The Smokin' Joe CBR was when I first started drag racing bikes.   Stepped up to a '98 ZX9R, and bolted some Muzzy stuff on that...  no pics, though.  Next was a ZX12R... had some Muzzy parts on that one too...  always wanted to do the big motor, but never had the $$$$.

Oh man, there was one of these new at the dealer when I bought my first street-legal bike. I wanted it badly but wisely stuck with the XR250L I was there for. I was 16 and all.

In reply to GCrites80s :

It was a really fun bike, and one of the last racer rep sportbikes that was really comfortable on the street.  I got a smokin' (sorry cheeky) deal on it from an acquaintance who was super anal about his bikes, and the CBR had gotten bumped by someone else's bike in a parking lot and had a 1/4" scratch on the tank.  Other than that it was perfect, but he couldn't stand it and sold it to me cheap.  It was around a year old and had maybe 1200 miles on it.

One of my friends had a cammed nitrous 12r in that red. Thing was a monster. 
 

The Muzzy bike is a 'Raptor T' for the model of it. Makes sense, since the prior bikes they built ground up were ZX-7 based Muzzy Raptors. Those are rare as hell too, but there are far more of them. I only know of 3 Raptor T's. I'm 99% sure the first gen Ricky Gadson rebuilt during the pandemic is one of the other ones. They just sound different than your normal 10R with their cams and head work.

I still have a timeslip somewhere that I had Gadson autograph after he beat me in a final...  cheeky

Haven't followed him much since I've been out of drag racing for a long time, but he was really down to earth back then.  Gave me some good advice on getting that '12 off the line.

On the way from NH to DC:

I think that's just a standard Lancer wagon with Evo emblems on it?

Pretty sure that it's just a Lancer Ralliart wagon. The Ralliart package was not really that big of a deal. I think it was just wheels and spoilers with a 160hp (non-Evo) engine.

 

Still a total Unicorn, but...

I was visiting my home town in SE Minnesota this weekend, and happened to see this going through town on a trailer - the 1970 Sox and Martin Pro Stock Plymouth Duster.  If it wasn't the real thing, it was a very good replica.  Either way I have no idea what it was doing there.

Volkswagen 2-door hatch. Badge on the grill says VR6 or VRG. Hard to tell... 

Never seen one though.

Edit to add: According to the Googles it's a VR6 Corrado.

Am I just old or does the original look more classy and timeless and the new one overwrought- like trying too hard?
