A parrot is a commitment isn't it? They live for quite a few years don't they?

Since I had been pretty much hiding any trace of my previous love affair with motorcycles (1991 when my best friend at the time and I shared a 2 stroke Yamaha RD350), I don't have any photos from back then.

I had also been keeping my current amour a secret until my 5 and 7 years old boys decided to blab to Grandma and Granddad....oh well. It is a pretty sad indictment of my relationship with my folks that at 43 years of age I still feel the need to keep things from them.

Anyway here is a snap of me with 2 time IOM TT winner Cameron Donald - and yes I did own a honda at the time.

Me Racing at Brands Hatch WSB practice 1998. Great Bike, it was a Rotax powered Tigcraft we raced between the two superbike events. That year the Supermono qualification time would have put you 6th on the main grid!!!!!!, they were fast.

Oooooooohhhhh. A Tigcraft Single! Thought about importing one to race, back in the day, but never pulled the trigger.... Dammit.  Could have learned A LOT about corner speed, no doubt. I envy your experience, mate! They are so Tiny and Perfect.

Hey Freshegg, i don't want to hijack the thread with pictures of race bikes!!, but here are two :-)

This was the Tigcraft i raced, in TT spec, i was fastest newcomer :-) it was the alloy tube version.

Me last year, pretending I'm racing, at the bike show. About as close as I'll ever get. Can't seem to find a good one of me on the GRiSO. Maybe at the rally next month. Very Happy

1989. I smelled like 2-stroke most of the time. A moron; just look at those pants! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

2000, my first road bike. Starting to realize I don't know everything. In graduate school so I can gradually learn I don't want to be in school any more. Sweet Casio wristwatch. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And yesterday. Happy with how life turned out -- there's a GRiSO in the garage and tons of other nice things have happened. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Just me and the GRiSO relaxing and chatting in the park. She's a very good listener!
Tried to get some action shots , but taking pics with one hand on the bars and the other shooting pictures and constantly signalling for a left turn just got other drivers and pedestrians angry with me.

Thought i might re-light this thread Smile

This is me at Herstmonceaux in Summer 1973 in front of my mates A65 Star
- we only completed 5 observation points of the ACU rally due to vibration,  inability to understand the clues, disorganisation and laziness.

I started riding in 1966, my first real bike was a 350 Velocette Viper and on to 500 Venom cafe racers.
I pretty much stuck to big singles from then on, a whole series of XT 600 Teneres, an early KLR 650,
650 Dominator etc etc.
My collection from an earlier Volvo boat build at Valencia

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


My first Italian V twin a '95 900ac Cagiva Elefant. I bought her on ebay from New Zealand in 2012.
I flew to London then took a bus to Nottingham to pick her up. Then a three day two nights ride to Valencia in Spain for work.
I rode her for 9 months while working there. Taken on the trip to Valencia

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

My next job was in Portugal and while there I rebuilt the bike from the ground up intending to do a lap of Australia.
Realizing that at 70 I'm not up to it any more I gave her to my son in Woolongong. Hopefully he'll do the lap.

My GRiSO when I picked her up at Wellington as I left to ride back to Auckland 2 years ago

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

She's come a long way since then

sadly don't currently have access to all those flared jeans and long hair shots....
but here are the bikes from my past...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
my first bike... 864 Frankenbike, '78 SSD frame, 40mm carbs, body work from all over... should never have sold it...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
'80 GSX1100E awesome tractor. 200,000km together. 8000km in 9 days on one trip...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
'88 FJ1200... too fat for sporting, too thirsty for touring, but very capable at both!!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
'88 GSXR 1100R Slingshot. I hated it. Basically an 1100cc 2 stroke! All it want to do was sit on the back wheel, and head for 300kmph...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
and of course, the keeper... 2008 2V 1200. finally, no more carbs or chains!!
