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.

More 'Old School' - GT750 'kettle' - brings back memories, I had one of these over 30 years ago ...


Love those clocks .... had a gear indicator, all those years ago.

Because you never know when you might need your sword and shield ......... or - If William Wallace rode a trike...



Front view - powered by another old Suzuki unit - looks like a GS1000 ? ...or maybe the GS850 shaft drive?

Like all other bikes at the same time!!! But the difference it's the GT is a two strokes with no engine break like kawasaki H1 and H2.

No breaks on the bike and no break engine ... The breaks wath's for??

Lol! - With all the 'breaking' and 'braking' going on I'm getting confused. ... I'm guessing you are saying the big Suzuki two-stroke is a stronger engine than the Kawasaki rival ? As mentioned before, I owned a GT750 (and a T500) for a while... but sadly never got to ride the Kawasaki H1 or H2 equivalents (although as a young teenager, they were the 'stuff of dreams') .
