    I'm sure i've seen that down Quatt cafe before now.

    Doing some jiggery pokery on the blue 'bird so no fairings but was tidying the garage so thought i'd take a pic whilst i'd dragged them out

    Quite possibly it's only 15 minutes down the road so I make the odd visit.

    Sat in the garden with a lockdown beer just gazing at this beast wishing I could get out and ride it. She's an old girl at 20 years of age but she still makes me drool. :D

    Because of the full 2-2 stainless exhaust system, mine sounds like a cross between a Lancaster bomber and a Spitfire at full chat. I love it. Never get tired of the noise or the power delivery. :D:D:D

    It does have its drawbacks though, the noise. I daren't commute on it early in the morning as I am a considerate neighbour and it would wake the street up. Mille's dont like being started and ridden off straight away, they need a bit of warming up first.

    Just bought some xrc billet cnc engine covers for my enduro bike, it took 5 weeks to get here from NZ but well worth the wait!
    Will post pics when I’ve tidied the garage and installed them.

    Not actually posted a pic in here since I bought it (have posted in the what you did today thread) but figured I'd put a couple of pics I took today up of the GSX650F. It's really nothing fancy at all but it's a decent first bike and the colour is, imo really awesome. The paint is Suzuki Metallic Triton Blue and the fleck really helps it flop / pop in the sun and helps to change the colour in all sorts of different lighting. The downside is it's a right pain to get a good pic of it, the bike looks like it's a different colour every time I take a photo. :D

    The tank pic really shows the colour variation in lighting conditions (sun was out and on the top of the tank) and it also shows the amount of metal fleck in it.

    The Suzuki pearl paints are lovely when the light hits them, my blue SV looked great after a quick wash and wax.

    Just bought this on a spare of the moment.

    Have only ever had a Harley before so this feels a bit different to say the least!
