Howdy

Recommended Posts

After 20 years without a bike following a serious motocross crash I am now back on two wheels and loving every minute.

I got my hand in again on a DR125 and then jumped in the deep end with a GS850G Old and solid just like me!!!! thumbs

Thanks guys, I do love the GS it might be heavy but feels nice on the move, very little gear changes and engine like a sewing machine.

I rode an RM500 on the dirt for a couple of seasons and I enjoyed that monster too. Then I got a new 250 and it was just too quick off the mark for me - hence the bail out and enforced layoff.

I think I would do the same on a 600 sports bike !!!!!

At almost 65 I need to be realistic eh. Sad

Why? Twisted Evil Bikes go as quick as you make them. Twisted Evil If you fancy a 600, then at least go and look, possibly test ride one and see how you feel. As they say, One Life, Ride it thumbsthumbs

welcome It's a good forum with plenty of character(s)

I like the idea of the fairing and screen on the Triumph and the luggage. The GS has no place for a sandwich even and I find the wind and bumpy roads at speed are the limiting factor. 140mph? no chance!!!! bad enough at 70!!! (ish)

Thanks for the greetings folks, hope I can get to meet a few of you one day thumbs
