Me too.

It's on the list of things to do. After fitting new oil lines and getting the rear sub frame stripped and powder coated. Bloody salt!!

Every time I start thinking the world is all bad, then I start to think there's people out there having fun on motorcycles, then it makes me take another look.

Is there an OAP group I can tag along with?

I'm sure with your senior years, a Group 1 leader is cool with you

Long time no speak, ladies and gentlemen. I may very well be able to make it this time. Depends on work, finances and the state of the bike at the time!!!

What about that wash you were mentioning, or have you taken our advice and not bothered - all the grime is holding your bike together!

this is my version of a used bike, high mileage well abused, not looked after and still no real problems, what a real bike should be?
