I’ve just read all 52 pages over the last couple days and it is a very interesting and entertaining thread. I thought I would share some of my bikes from the last 10 years, as you can see I basically buy and try anything!
I'm the same. Today I went to watch the Tour of Britain go past and then I chatted to a guy who had turned up on an old Triumph Trophy (single carb Bonnie). Turns out he lives about five miles from me and has five Triumphs, (four Trophy and a Bonnie), the bike he was on, a D reg, was very smart. I'm going to look at his others next week. I told him five bikes was greedy and he needs to off load one my way.
I had a trip to Donington park this week for a track day. I am still struggling with injuries sustained in a crash in April (I found out this week I had fractured my knee cap and torn my posterior cruciate ligament) so hanging off the bike was a little difficult. I only did the morning sessions, before feeling a little worse for wear, but I enjoyed the time on track. Hopefully, I will be able to do a few more next year. I would like to get back to Cadwell, Oulton park and do Brands hatch for the first time.
Had a nice ride out to Bibury today to the Classic Motor Hub to their Ride In day. All the chaps off the Motorcycle Show were there and I managed to have a chat to both Alan Millyard and Guy Willison, both top blokes
Snapped this shot in a posh gateway on the way home
I was going to go to Oulton park today for the BSB racing (I get free tickets, as my brother does the catering for BMW) Unfortunately, I decided against filling up with fuel on my way home from work on Thursday when the warning light came on.
Now all the local garages are out of fuel and I do not want to risk running out trying to find some!
Went to look at two bikes the other, nearly bought four, but ended up buying the two I hadn't gone to view instead. One (on the right) runs, or it did but now doesn't, the other one is a non-runner. The latter going to my ace mate to have the new wiring loom (supplied with it) fitted, the former I'll tinker with in the week. Thought I was being clever finding/making space for them, then remembered I've got three others away, two being repaired and one in for MOT.
