On Sunday I went to visit my friend Jack's house or as I like to call him Gypsy Jack. I showed him some of my blogging skills since he wants to start a blog. He showed me some of his awesome motorcycles. He's got a Yamaha R1 that has 175 Horsepower Does it go fast?… Jack's gotten it up to 192mph! If someone lighter rode it he said it could go over 200mph. Also in the stable is a Aprilla Mille R with carbon fiber bodywork and a Yamaha R6. Each bike has a lot of special details and features. Like the handmade windscreen on the R1 and all the graphics on the bikes. You can really tell the time and effort Jack puts into building them. He's put thousands of dollars into each and it shows. For a small sum he will even build you one, if you are game. He won't build a bike for posers, idiots, or douches though. Of course if you are one with tons of money… maybe that will make a difference. 🙂
Including his motorcycle collection Jack also has an impressive toy collection in his basement. My favorite part of the collection is his RC cars, which he used to race competitively. Some of the cars have immense detail, just like the motorcycles, and are tuned to perfection. He used to lap most people in races and usually won in every racing class that he participated in. Also in his collection is a Patton Replica, Star Wars Legos, and a Valentino Rossi replica made by hand. That isn't all as you can see from the photos.
If you have any questions pertaining to riding, sportbikes, motorcycling racing, building a bike, RC cars, or toys Jack is the man to ask.
