- My close friend are crazy about motorcycles with high cubic centimetres and my grandfather is into motorcycles with low cc.

Thanks a lot!

My close friend are is crazy about powerful motorcyclesbikes with high cubic centimetres and my grandfather is into low cc bikes.

This is obviously an informal sentence, so you need to reduce the repetition and be less technical about what cc means. Any bike enthusiast would know what it means; you wouldn't have to spell it out for them.

Yes, he's in the video that Steven linked to in another recent thread, Lift up the front wheel?

Dear Erik and Edwin F Ashworth!

- You guys are so funny :) My grandpa is not the man in the video. He passed away a long time ago. When he was alive, he was into Harley and racing motorcycles from Japan. Are you guys huge fans of powerful motorbikes? :)

Best regards,
