Not a great colour IMO, shouldn't all Kawasakis be green?
It is the law and having owned 4 of them, I have been compliant.
So much so, uneducated can't tell the difference between ZX6R F2 and a ZX9R C1 that I owned concurrently. Sometimes I'd forget to and ride the 9 like a 6 and arrived before I left.

I can post on here again!

I've just bought a BMW R65....

Actually I've just bought Alex's BMW R65 as he is not likely to ride it ever so I thought I'd take the stress off him worrying what he was going to do with it!

66376

So I can do away with the knobbly tyres (can't abide them) and get it ready for that one glorious Sunday morning when the sun is shining!

Horrendous but could have been even worse. Guy on "correct" side of road doing almost 90 so closing speed probably close to 200?
utter madness.

Here's my two current bikes. I've had the TDM from new in 2004 and have been pretty much all over Europe on it and the Guzzi since 2010.
That Le Mans is gorgeous Trev. I've two Guzzi's and although they aren't by any means the most sensible bikes to own I can't imagine not owning one. Remind you of Maserati by any chance? No coincidence.

With the MG centenary approaching I am starting to make plans to join the party in Mandello del Lario. You?

Thanks, I've been very pleased with it. It's not done a huge milage (in Guzzi terms), having clocked up just under 28k. I probably won't make it to the centenary bash and Mandello, but we'll have to see a little nearer the time. I must be about due for a european tour again soon.

Just had my planned sale of my 2003 GSxR 750 and purchase of a full on Ducati 1198 scuppered by a loving wife who reminded me it is our 25 year wedding anniversary this year, we are going on holiday and I need to start the house extension before planning runs out
Ho hum

I can’t explain why, but I’m drawn towards buying a Yamaha GTS1000A. I know they’re underpowered and there are better bikes of that period available but still quite fancy one. Someone talk me out of it.
