It is a great bike, not the engine of the GIXEER 1000, not a lot of BHP, not the last body, but it is fun, just a bit heavy weight, and when you ride a bit hard you can put the cylinder on the road ( if my memory is good the left is lower than the right), but it is a funny bike...

98 BHP ..but still good for a respectable 140 mph apparently.

after 23 miles of fast bends it's time to stop and regroup at the garage in Broughton...



Of the eight bikes six were gixxers, three 1000's two 750's and a 600...

Great road with perfect curves...



I think the next time it will be with more "angle" and no cases.

Sunday ride continued ..

Unfortunately I missed the turn off for the A72 and we had to stop, have a consultation and turn round ...in my defence at least I realised my mistake within a mile.






The A72 took us back down through Biggar and on to the Abington services on the M74 where we stopped for a brew and to say goodbye to one of our visitors who was heading back south 200 miles to home.

Unfortunately it rained again heavily on the run down to Abington ..but it didn't put Ally and Jeni swapping bikes to try each others out .... Jeni seemed to like the 1000 ......



At Abington services Ally came to the rescue of a couple who had locked their keys in their Land Rover..........

Ally using his skillz to fish keys out of the ignition....



Having a brew in the services .....our visiting friend Dave toasting us with a 'wee dram' from his hip flask.

Bikes were filthy after the run and getting rained on ...... Instead of the usual hour cleaning them by hand we cheated a bit......

Cheers Fraser ..... it's interesting to see how different folk see different things in pictures, I didn't think the pic you refer to 'stood out' in particular and wasn't going to post it up ...and only posted it when I realised it matched one of bubu at the exact same location, - (to illustrate the point I was making).

I realise now if I was to pick my favourite pics on this thread they would probably be totally different to one's others would pick ... beauty truly is in the 'eye of the beholder' ...

It was a fair division of labour - I took all the pictures.
