One of my all time heroes gets an upgrade... A metric cruiser!

Wednesday, August 27, 2008


Ever since I was a kid, I've been fascinated with the Kamen Rider(Masked Rider) shows. The show's been around since the late 70's, and still has a huge cult following to this very day.


I wasn't lucky enough to catch the original Kamen Rider(see above pic), since I was born during the 80's. I was instead treated to one of the greatest Kamen Rider shows of the 80's: Kamen Rider Black!

How cool is that? A guy who transforms into the ultimate butt whomping, biker! Now THAT's a hero!


Fastforward to 2008. The latest Kamen Rider no longer uses a sportbike, or a dirtbike. He's got a freakin' chopper!


Enter, Kamen Rider Kiva, and his "Machine Kivaa"!

Font view of the awesomeness...

Awesomeness from the side...

Turns out, his "Machine Kivaa" is a 2007 Honda Shadow Aero® VT750!


*SIGH* My hero...

Too bad most of the bike looks stock though. I would've been awesome with loud pipes or something.
