Yep; don't deny it; but I guess, sadly, even Triumph started their factory in Thailand;
Tell me, how do those thumpers fair with the quick japs inlines when you ride? Do they keep up the pace or you guys ride slow for them?

The Thumpers were not with us. They just got caught at the road block along with us.... and several hundred cars.
So no need for them to keep pace or for us to slow down.

The bikes in our group on Sunday (at one point or another) were :-

Honda Blackbird - (2)
Honda Fireblade (4)
Kawasaki ZZR1400
Suzuki GSXR 1000 (2)
Suzuki GSXR 750
Yamaha R1 (2)
Yamaha R6
Kawasaki ZX636
Aprilia Mille 1000
Ducati 1198

Those stone chips can come at you like bullets! My indicator lense took a hit on Sunday.

Pretty sure those are a knock-off of a pretty famous flat track racer, Dave Aldana. He's in the AMA Hall of Fame.

This is true .... Aldana was famous for pioneering the skeleton leathers. I remember him from going to watch the 'Transatlantic Trophy' race series back in the 80's.

The tank isn't so big - the same size as other 1000cc sportsbikes ...it just looks bigger because the rest of the bike is small (ie. that tiny tail unit).

Luckily the indicator lense is not a big deal - just 18 to replace - which is cheap compared to most other bike parts (like replacing a holed radiator!)

Still resisting the temptation as I fear I might just like the bike way to much, and at around 20k for the S model (their demo bike), it's just a bit out of my price range!

I DO like it though...

Always nice to catch up with this thread and its great images.

Keep it up Kam.

Thanks mate ... I will try my best.

....and - take that test ride!

As it happens yesterday was a great day all round. The threatened rain never materialised so after my morning rideout Sarah and I cycled down along the river into Glasgow to Glasgow Green. Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller's latest art installation is currently on display there (before it travells down to London for the Olympics) - a giant bouncy replica of Stonehenge. The Glasgow public were certainly enjoying interacting with it.
