Would they not let the BMW in?

Or do you secretely have a Guzzi.

And change the lighting setting on your camera to fluoro. I've never seen a KTM Orange LeMans before.

Nice XS650


'78 XS650E, nice job of converting, not radical - just common sense

Yamaha YL1. 4 speed. Used it on short circuit back in '68. But I could not stay on it.( I blamed all my falls on the short wheel base) but I just didn't have a clue.

Now proposed as a coffee table talking piece. A few screws & carby's & it's there

That 'slowbike' post

Bit intrigued by slowbikes pik. Must be one hell of a bumpy road the bird is ridin. Either that or she is doing something she doesn't really enjoy but must make the effort? Anyway, I am all for the Aussie site for old folks......and their not quite as old equipment. I have fingers crossed my '85 gr650 will survive the roadworthy tomorrow and join the throng.
