Awesome pic, but she looks entirely too happy holding that pistol. Reminds me of what Chris Titus said in one of his stand-up specials. "Here's a hint, guys. If you're gonna beat her, don't teach her how to fire the weapon."

WAY too comfortable although I'm more concerned about her being a lefty with a short attention span than I am about her intentionally shooting me

Was back in the UK a few weeks back. Got some pictures of my uncle back in the day that I need to scan in. This was his weapon of choice

Horrible gun safety. Finger on trigger and she's going to receive a nice slice across her thumb.

I love the American cars from that era. Superb! They were too big to be practical in the UK and rotted to nothing in no time at all. I have fond memories of rorting about in a friends Pontiac Firebird in the early 80's outrageous car - we all had to chip in for fuel to go anywhere though.

I thought this was really nice



It's an Ariel square four in a Norton featherbed frame.

Didn't see the owner to get any details though

Mine too - mine was a Dodkin tuned Venom though.

You can spot elderly ex owners by the way they hobble around favouring their right ankle. The bike was usually ok to start but every now and then it would get cantankerous and kick back spectacularly. I had the sole of my boot peeled off once. The worst of it was having to bump start with just one working ankle. :)

Coil ignition made a great improvement.

Trail Tech Vapor Speedo /Tach unit

Anyone know if a Vapor from Trail Tech will work on a Honda CB400f???
I believe if it will work on a 2 stroke, it should work on a single coil that fires 2 cylinders right????
There is only a simple wire that wraps around the plug wire to work the tach by induction.

A good looking airhead:




Looks okay, but the rider said it's too much vibration while riding:
