My guess is the 59 north and beltway exchange.

Unless you have a tripod (so you can get an extended exposure) the only setting that will help you is bumping up your ISO. Either way, it's still not going to lighten up the dark spots enough to do your bike justice. Low light photography can be quite difficult.
My bicycle costs more than your motorcycle...

The best pic is the one with your bike on the right hand side of the frame. In photo/video terms it has "leadroom". The bike is pointing left so it has a symmetry in this shot because you allow it (and your eyes) to flow that direction.

In this photo you can see that the camera exposed for the background which is the dominant part of the image and was brighter. As a result, the foreground (your bike) is darker.

To compensate for this you can do a couple of things:
  1. Manually override the exposure settings so that the camera exposes more for the foreground, however this means you background will also get brighter.
  2. Fill the foreground area with light. You can do this using a technique known as "fill flashing" which puts out just enough light from your flash to lighten things up. Or you can do this but using a reflector that bounces the available light from the sun onto your bike. In this case the reflector would probably be the better option because the setting sun is a warmer (redder) light than the light from a camera flash (a brighter blue color). This means your bike would look more naturally lit to match the surroundings.

Hope this helps your friend.
