Know what's a LOT of Fun? Riding 80mph on a rain soaked freeway getting pissed on with a brand new front tire, lots of fun.




Riding right into "The Shite"

The Euro/American finally Meets the Limey on a cool rainy day, kind of like the signing of the Versailles Treaty but that was the French and in a train car.

Nice pics Luxie, you see how unique your Silver V looks among all those black bikes in the first pic?

Broke down in the middle of no where, opened a farm gate so I could park in the shade of a tree and waited for a mate to bring out some tools, yes this dumb ass had no tools with me ( oh and thanks hd for putting the battery in such an easily accessible position(muscle))
Anyway after stripping the bike I was able to tighten the negative battery terminal and all was goodClick image for larger version
