and at the other end of the spectrum!!

as nick-in-time said in an earlier thread, your overseas following is in awe of you demi god tearing it up at sepang, great pics, great lap times and great fun !!! GITS

but back here where the weather just aint so good or the girls so pretty we have to look at other ways to make biking interesting.
with my old man refusing to let me out on his pizza delivery wagon, and a lack of redies due to me still not working after 18 months and only getting 55 quid a week off the govment i've dot myself a "fixer-upper"

its been stashed in a mates garage for the last 10 years and the old man towed me home on it yesterday which was a bit hairy. it needs slightly more than a T-cut and an oil change but should be fun for the next couple of months

I want to be young & wild. Then I want to be middle-aged & rich. And then I want to be old & annoy people by pretending I'm deaf

i recon the faring weighs more than your bike with you on it mate!! its about 10mm thick and made of lead!!!!!! but it was free, its a bike and i got nothing else to do!

the towing was fun, went about a mile and the only place that looke strong enough to tie to was the forks, handled better than the tl at times though

Perhaps you're more deserving of the moniker 'classicracing', mate!

Remember, these bikes won the inaugural AMA 'Superbike' Championship in '79. Perhaps a call to 'San Jose BMW' in the States would come in handy before a trip to Brands.



PS. Was nice of nik to mention the lav. Did he mean outhouse, though?

Still Racing

What with the bike and you ! what was your Dad driving a farkin Scania or what!!

Glad to see you're keepin yer hand in!

Here's a plan ...take off the good bits, both of em , and scrap the rest!
Whatever you do, don't mention the war!!!!

Just cos starsky and hutch has just come out does that mean yer a wanna be 70's copper on that thing.
I noticed somebody's already nicked the panniers..you'l need em to carry spares!!

bizzar as it sounds, the thing ain in that bad nick, the only shagged bits are the front fork stantions, the rest is just cosmetic honest!! and it didnt look too bad after 20 mins under the jetwash!! got the panniers in the boot of the car, it seemed the most senseable place to put them at the time!! its also got half a tank of fuel, but i'd imagine it would have gone off by now, so i'll pour it in the car, should get a few miles out of it!

Heartbeat ... why do you miss when my baby's kissing me

But if you're auditioning for the part of PC Nick Rowan's replacement on Heartbeat, then the bike's about 10 yrs too new !!
