Same as my old bike. Can't beat a classic Strom.

A few people have asked to see a photo of my Vincent Comet so here she is. An original factory touring model built in 1952. Only a few were made to this spec. The only things that has been changed since this bike left the factory are the air in the tyres, oil and fuel. The other photo is my much modified Black Shadow, this bike has done Route 66, been to Whitehorse in Canada and has done north-south of Australia then a tour of NZ and every country in Europe. The photo is me just setting off for a 7 week trip to Istanbul.

This is not my bike but an image off the internet. Lovely though, just thought I would share it.

doing a bit of a digital sort out and found this gem...

Sept 2009, less than a month after passing my test. That bike fell apart if you looked at it too hard... thus begins my pains with Yamaha bikes.

My bike finally at home after been stuck some 300 miles away due to lockdown. So glad to have it home and be able to go for evening spins around these great lakes!

A mate and I went for a trip in the rain yesterday to try out our new jacket and trousers. We stopped off at Trevose Head along the north coast of Cornwall.

Finally it's here  :dance:

Ordered this 7 months ago and today was the day to bring it home. A completely different beast to my V-Strom.... time will tell which is used most  :shrug:

Without panniers currently as I'm fixing the Tutoro oiler to it. Really like it. 1200 miles done from new so far, and enjoyed almost all of them!  :grin:

Did I ride past you at "Nice Baps"?
I was on the yellow 650...
