Hey Tony, nice scooters. I'm guessing at your age you are restricted to what you can ride, eh?

Yes Mrs Chris riding very safely. Good lines, good observations etc , just lacking a bit of confidence in the twisties.

Looks a very clean bike that Karl. I bought a 1100L in 1990, the first model with Kayaba upside down front suspenders which sorted out the handling problems. Virtually the same colour scheme except for silver wheels. Fantastic engine in it’s day that oil cooled unit with a full 130bhp in unrestricted form and huge low down grunt. Very tuneable as well. They never really matched the FZR1000 on the track though. Those asymmetric flat slide (slingshot) carbs gave perfect fuelling, long since replaced by ECUs and digital EFI etc.

$1000 Scrapper - was bought for just knocking about on, and then a friend twisted our arms into taking part in the Scrapheap Adventure Ride: http://www.scrapheapadventureride.com.au/

1992 Yamaha XT600, ex Aus Army (hence green and black and the long range tank)

Partnered by a smaller, more modern thing:

Well really been tearing it up today. We started at the Triumph dealer for a test ride of an XRc and ended up at CMC buying an Explorer XCa like mine. Well my mate did. he's happy as a pig in nuts.

Nice one Karl - always liked these, since a mate of mine (who also owned my local a few years back) had one. :)
