Do they have a race history? I'm guessing they would be a big heavy lump to wrestle around, and the R100's struggle to get past.....wait for it...Honda 350 twins.
Just pushing the big heavy lump of a thing out of the storage lockup has me wheezing. For it's size it's crazy heavy


Posted from an upmarket room in ranfurly ( is there such a thing ? )
Heading through the Nevis tomorrow, brrrrrrr
Danseys was shut so ended up taking some sweeeeet back roads to Palmerston (?) Then over the pig root just on dusk

It was back in the Dot.Com boom, fully paid work trip with Missus to Thailand for a week. Thank you Y2K bug for that.
Off to Vietnam in Aug to ride a CB200 from HCMC to Hanoi.....
I thought about Brick racings for a bit, did a google search..... Max says we can probably work towards 70-80 HP out of the R100 so .....

You eurotrash heated floor elitists wouldn’t understand the simple pleasures of the working class klr rider. The cafe at Kimbolton makes a mean toasty - its got 3 fillings !!!!

Have a great trip
