Shalom everybody and good day.
It must be morning over your states but here it's night time.
OK' I bougth my first bike when I was 17 years old.
It was a suzuki TSX50cc model and it was fun.
During the years I had some regular bikes and sport bikes as well like:
FZR600, CBR900, R750.
I always loved harley's and custom bikes bur it seamd so far away from me, like sometime when I'll be 40 with beer belly.:bleh:
But sometimes it just hit's you when you least expecting it.
I saw my bike at first in a dealership in tel-aviv and I got so entusiastic
that I couldent sleep that night.
In the next morning I peak'd up the phone and called the dealership and asked about price and other deatels, I got ther to take it for a spin and felt for it. I'ts not a harley but it did it to me. I had to have it.
To make a long story short I bougt the suzuki marauder vz 800 year model 97.
I know that for you it must sound like an old bike but for me it was out of reach to own a custom bike that fits me and that it is not a real harley.
Driving seans:
:nfu2: link one
:bleh: link two. driving in jerusalem inside the walls

Congrats on the new bike. Keep saving those shekels and someday you'll have the bike of your dreams.

Shalom from California Jalaad, hope you enjoy the site. Nice looking bike you have. What's it like riding a bike in Israel? I was there in February '05 and just driving a car around was nerve wracking. I couldn't imagine trying to navigate around Jerusalem on a bike especially near the Old City, that traffic seemed like total chaos to me. Also where did you take those photos? The third one looks like maybe West Bank or near the Dead Sea?

Cool video Jalaad, I've walked those streets a few times. Even ate lunch in that pizza place on the left at the beginning of the video(Rami's Pizza), I loved wandering around the Old City.

Shalom....Heading to Israel in March. Only wish I could ride my Springer...but I hear the bridge between New York and Tel Aviv is not finished yet. I'd love to ride the road from Jericho to Masada.

the picture was taken in the arava road which is right next to the "withow maker" in my way to eilat last summer durring the sun rise in the morning.
Also for your imagination, imagine this. riding a bike here is like a mission imposible, but every time we get home we say mission accomplised, sir'.
But we are use to it so we dont give a damn, It's our hot tempre.

Hopefully you and Jalaad and Bobber Rider enjoy being members here and visit often. If that invitation is good for more than one, I'll look you up next year. I'm planning to be there in Feb. or March of '07 with a few friends. Does the Harley dealer there have rental bikes? As scary as the thought of Jerusalem traffic is on a bike I bet it would be a great way to see the country. Speaking of which I was amazed at how similar Israel is to California. Weather and terrain made it feel like home.:thumbsup:
