It really is in the works. The deal with my significantly-better-half was: new patio, new fence and redo the second floor of our house. Patio is done, fence is next week, and all that's left in the house is the finish-carpentry work (6 windows, kick-board and ceiling trim). I figure a few months and then it'll be off the dealer! I just need to make sure I don't get side-tracked by the engine re-build I'm doing on my son's RD 250...

Which puts us back OT:

Nice - I had a 250LC. My g/friend back then used it to get her license. I rode it tell she fell to pieces.

BTW you Northern-types are a bloody messy lot. What is all the white rubbish lying about?

White stuff? Horrible nasty business is what it is.

Here is one I had to let go. I still wonder why?

Oh yes, the captive bee hive in a can Suzuki. Nice bike but for the sound.

Are you trying to suggest you are well tempered enough to only use 3/4's of the throttle unless conditions are safe? You break me up.

Truthfully I've only ever owned one bike that tried to kill me every time I got on it. Oddly enough, that bike was not a Gamma.

Oooh - Dangerous. I gather that is the 250, not the 125?
