This was Buell’s answer to the “Adventure Bike”, and to those who wanted a more practical Buell, and it definitely is. Except for the tall 33inch seat height, this bike is an easy to manage road companion, and very comfortable for 2-up riding, with a small (if uncomfortable) back rest, and cavernous panniers that can easily carry a weekend’s worth of gear for two. Don’t let it’s looks fool you either. This is a sport bike too. It is responsive and agile, with a friendly personality and a truckload of low end grunt, producing 88 ft lbs of torque and 103 Hp, with a 57in wheelbase and 460lbs wet.
Wait a minute. Let me get this straight. This is a Made-In-America 100+Hp bike that handles like crazy, works around town, or one or two up touring, and if you shoe it with more bite it will do some duty on unpaved roads? Geez, this sounds like the perfect Motorcycle.
Too bad it ain’t around anymore, but you can ride it here at MotoFantasy. Try this bike, and you may find it’s power and it’s compatible handling characteristics very addictive.
1985 Kawasaki Ninja ZX900. What a sweet ride. This is Kawasaki’s first liquid cooled 4 cylinder sport bike, and it did the job very well. In a 1985 “Cycle” comparison that include it’s own brethren, a GPZ1100, and a GPZ750 Turbo, this machine was the preferred performer. The ZX900 handles very well, and the motor has a decent mid and top end rush that makes this a fun every day machine as well as competent in the twisites. Drop some soft bagas and a tank bag on it, and it becomes a completely capable sport-tourer. With 117Hp, though it is 525bs dry, it drops its weight quickly once it gets moving. The narrow tranverse 4 cylinder motor was a hallmark in it’s day, and the Horspower rating is no clouch, even today. A good Ninja rider can keep up with the pack of new bikes, no worries. This bike really lives up to its name. Very stable on it’s feet, it is still nimble and quick to transition through corners, kinda like a Ninja warrior, yes? If you’ve never tried one, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Whether you need it for one day or a week, Powered by Central Oreogn Dual Sport, our unique relationship allows us to give you the best rates, and to have the bike on site when you arrive, and for you to drop it here as well.
Harley, the iconic Police Motorcycle. This 2004 Dyna Defender lived the first half of it’s life as a Police bike. As big twins go this is set up to handle, with Screaming Eagle rear shocks, fork brace, as well as steering and chassis stabilizers. It can be set up as a solo machine or with a dual saddle to take your sweetie. Wth more clearance, travel and compliance in the suspension than the Softails, it is a great bike for the roads of Central Oregon. Experience the Legend.
This very clean 2004 BMW R1100S has a host of aftermarket mods: Ohlins suspension, Remus exhaust, Power Commander, throttlemeister, and a bunch of Carbon Fiber bits. It is a stable companion on any road, and a perfect complement to any machine in our stable. Developing 110hp as set up, this 445lb wet beauty is well balanced, and confidence inspiring. It is at home on the twisties or blazing the highway. With BMW Hard bags and a tank bag added, this can be a fun way to see Central Oregon and beyond.

This Loop takes you on amazing roads along the John Day River to the Fossil Beds, where dinosaurs once roamed, and on to John Day, where lunch can be had. Head south to some wonderful uphill curves on Highway 397, and in too few miles you’ll turn west toward Paulina. Not to fear, however, because you are now on the famed Post-Paulina Road, full of fast sweepers, some tight curves and great visibility. Watch out for a bit of gravel hear and there, and a few potholes to test your targeting skills. You are in the country after all, and the ride is beautiful. Stop off in Bend at a number of great brew-pubs.
