Yes, but would it kill you to throw some umbrella girl shots in there???

Didn't take long for the raven 660 to have you switching teams.

It was in Switzerland... all very tidy and correct... and no umbrella girls

Sorry!

Yeah... I hope to start soon with the 660. Today I'm sending the 1200 to the new owner in Málaga. Probably she's going to have a nice retirement. He's a real fan of this bike.

I still like the ol' Kenny Roberts Bumble Bee design, as seen in Jaumev's post!



Also note the nicely done white/red/black in the background.

So, here are a few of my photos from the Ténéré meeting in Switzerland.

Dakar style start ramp on arrival.



Jaumev and "friend" on arrival.



Lots to look at















I hadn't seen a blue WC sticker kit before





And some Dakar bikes







I think that this may be a Swiss version of a Raven bike!



and just one if me, ready for a Pluric caption
