Re: Anyone out there still riding motorbikes.

LOVELY old Triumph. How could you let go of that? (of course, I say the same thing to myself about my 850 Commando, much missed)

Re: Anyone out there still riding motorbikes.

Has anyone here ridden the new Honda CB1100- I saw one at the local dealers and can't stop thinking about buying one.

Re: Anyone out there still riding motorbikes.

Re: Anyone out there still riding motorbikes.

Are you sure they're related? She looks a little bit Asian to me....

She may have pulled a fast one in order to get a visa...

Re: Anyone out there still riding motorbikes.

Very nice Marcus, but as my wife has said to me you can only ride one at a time why do you want more than one? A lot of answers sprang to mind, but prudence and fear stopped me replying.

Re: Anyone out there still riding motorbikes.

Pete, miraculously that discussion never arose between Susanne and me.

However, when I expressed my humble wish to put the bikes into our drawing room during the winter ("stylish italian design", "eye catcher for our guests" etc.) she made it quite clear to me who is the government in our house and who only acts on a mere diplomatic level.

@ Keith: Prost!

Re: Anyone out there still riding motorbikes.

Oh well, it looks as though I'll have to ride the 1098 when i come over. How do we sort the insurance ? How about a short trip - Innsbruck and the over the pass to Verona day 1, to Bologna and Imola day 2', Milano Maritime days 3 Then back to home by day 6?

Im in for all above alternatives. What fun

Insurance no problem, just telling my insurance agent that this guy is not only used to low level flying but also creates his own weather!

Re: Anyone out there still riding motorbikes.

Fran - I don't know much about the older bikes, is that a Norton Manx?
BTW: That dirt bike looks like my Honda CR500, only maybe it's the smaller two-fiddy.

Looks like the Mericans are having an Ace cafe built in Florida.
