Lovely! ...looks like you are having a nicer evening than we are ...... It's always dark before we get home now, It's dark when we leave for work and dark when we come home - worst part of the year.

Normaly i never see that, but i backed home early (it is very rare), and i could see that moment.

It was very short! only 30 sec with these colors. i was really happy

A few more from our ride up and down Loch Lomond on Saturday ....





The old disused road that flows round the headland below the current A82 south of Tarbet....



It's amazing the things you miss when you go flying past on the sportsbikes...like this old bridge that sits right beside the A82 ..Despite passing it countless times on the gixxers I hadn't really noticed it before.....

Thanks .......agree 100% - it's why we like cycling ...apart from keeping fit, you get to see all the stuff you miss as you whizz by on the motorbikes ...and you get to explore new places that may not be accessible by road.

Thanks! I put that on my GSXR 1216 'Fighter - in keeping with the military theme. I sold it before someone said "I told you so" to the Thread topic "You are going to die" which i heard and still hear all the time....

No, on second thought, that's not a bandit, it's a GSXR, what year?
tank's different, forks are different, brakes are different, frame is similar but different,(then a bandit) but it's still carb'd
