Feel the raw speed

If you’re a motorcycle enthusiast and you don’t know about BikeExif — it’s time you did.

These guys publish a superb blog about the gnarliest motorcycles. Today it’s a 1979 CB500 by Anvil. Anvil’s take on this CB500 is minimalistic, but calls to the soul of riding. I’ve started to write haikus for bikes I’m seeing on other motorcycle blogs, so here’s one for Anvil’s CB500

Lean forward; loose grip
Throttle twist, clutch release, go
Old guts, modern speed
