Cheers .... As for riding in 'comfort' that will be when the weather improves in spring..our rideout season should kick off again in about 9 weeks, - early/mid March usually ...although I have got to sort out picking the bike up in the next two weeks which will involve a 200 mile ride home....I'm hoping the snow keeps away!

Safe riding mate and hope to bump into you again sometime in the coming year up in Bonnie Scotland.


Hi mate... yes, I'm going to do my very best to keep out of helicopters from now on - those things are dangerous!

Look forward to seeing you and the Mrs back up here ...lets hope we are in for a glorious summer!

Thanks Doug .... same to you and your family.

'man, myth, legend'? - you missed out 'the muppet' (who keeps trashing his bikes) bit !

btw.... I have upgraded to a better camera too.... just got a Sony NEX 3n ...can't wait to try it out when we get out riding .....although it will need to excel to beat the wee Canon that was perfect for the task..... time will tell. However I do love the 'low light' capability of it and the 'panorama' mode that stitches pictures together ..here's my first try at it .....(and with no flash in the dark). I'm pretty pleased with it ... (That's Sarah also taking a pic in the pic! Lol!)

Very nice Kam. Seems a tad pricey to potentially " throw down the road" though.:)

Awesome Kam. I've been offline for a little bit but feel Itoo got a Xmas present when I saw your new Gixxer. Great stuff, stay safe and buy good gear. Maybe avoid tweed coats and loafers like Grand Dad (they were tough guys back then).

Cheers to a happy New Year.

Ha ha - 'gutties' - I had to look that one up.

I think 'no need for speed' could be an excellent future film title.

This is very true ....but having recently thrown 10K of gixxer down the road ........ .!....

The NEX is more costly than the wee compact Canon ...but at 275, it wasn't too outrageous.....
....... hopefully I can avoid throwing it down the road.

Thanks...... As luck would have it I actually picked the bike up today .......new bike days are the best of days ...but damn! - the 200 mile ride home was cold!

Snapped a few pics outside the dealers whilst she was still looking pristine ....
