Kamchat,

Great thread! That is all.

Cheers.

Thanks ..and welcome to the thread and Forum ... I'm stoked that you chose this thread to move from 'lurking to posting'... you are probably somewhere in the pics from yesterday - so you would be in the thread anyway! Lol!



Cheers

Kam

Thanks for the pics, mate!

I like the Yamaha leathers. I'd fit in there twice, though....
It is a nice bike, ain't it.. ?

We had quite some snow here today, btw. I'd be pissed if I had a bike.


No worries .... you are welcome.

Snow? - But in Switzerland aren't you supposed to have lots of snow? At least you can go skiing, snowboarding and snowmobile riding!

Another Ace from yesterday

Hi bubu,

The Glasgow Yorkhill Egg Run takes place every Easter Sunday, Scottish bikers do a run to Yorkhill sick children's hospital to bring Easter Eggs for the children and donate money to the hospital. It is a charity event. The run usually involves thousands of bikers and follows a route round the west-end of Glasgow.

Quite a few riders bring their own children on the pillion to enjoy the run .... It's a fun event.

Hiya Kam,

thanks again!
Nice shot of a Fazer in one of those pics!

One question: Is this Rocket-guy one of "your" group or does he just accidentally happen to be on almost every shot?

And aye, we are supposed to have quite a bit of snow, but not for Easter, Jesus Christ..!
I don't ski, snowboard or ride snowmobiles, btw. So i just hate the white stuff.

No, the 'Rocket-Guy' is not part of our group, he just happened to be next to us at the start and travelled at the same pace ... so was around us when I was taking pics along the route.

If you hate the 'white stuff' - aren't you living in the wrong place! Lol! - When I think of Switzerland I tend to imagine snow and mountains.
Mind you, I hate rain - and I live in Scotland! - So 'who am I to talk' !? Lol!

Good lord, this thing seems to be better equipped than most superbikes/supermotos!
And I would have never guessed that the Conti Road Attack's are available in that size.
Thumbs up!

See, that's the difference - when I think of Switzerland I imagine mountains and SUN.
I tend to ignore the winter at large.

When I think of Scotland I tend to imagine - well, doesn't matter...
I also don't particularly like rain, let's leave it at that.

Who are you to talk anyway?
Ah, right, you own this thread...

Maybe you should forget the Ace - maybe a Monkey Bike for your next purchase? Would make for interesting commuting.
