Dog, HAP; thanks for the comments!

The bike that really did blow my hair back in the late Eighties was my GSXR 750, here on a track day.







Metzeler tyres, rebuilt rear shock and a gutted silencer. Electronically timed at 228kph/142mph.

Nice one HAP. But what's with the Little Oil Girl?

Here you all go - you old "must have spoked wheels and carburettor" types. Yawn.




This guy has made a Boxer look half Cool by decking it. I bet it handles like a pus-bag though.

Oh really? Are these still in Essex? Who's close for a little sneak and peek?

I happen to like the little oil girl.

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.

I find stories like that very funny Jack. It's like some Dude jemmied open a lock-up and "WOW!" "Who T. F. left these here?" "Hey Guys, look what I found".

I believe an "Ocean's 11" type operation should be in order.

It has those f***ing Firestones. When will they go away?!
