Lovely, very lovely; my heart aches when I see such beauties; missing them

There're lots of rides (and lots of pages) to browse in last 2 weeks. Looks like we're all back in form to ride. Tks to Summer

Didn't feel like summer yesterday - it even snowed on us briefly on our rideout ....which came to a sudden stop just outside Tyndrum ...

The road was closed for an hour..... a Busa rider had come off on the bend ahead and was getting airlifted to hospital.......

Helicopter leaving with injured rider ....



Gary, who was at the front of our group (no surprise there ) got through before the road block.... he helped load the injured rider onto a stretcher and into the helicopter .... he said although the guy was in a lot of pain (with a broken collar bone protruding from his shoulder) luckily his injuries didn't look 'life threatening' .

"broken collar bone protruding from his shoulder"


It's the most frequently injuries for riders!!!! My right collar bone is completely destroye on 3 parts. My scapula is in two parts to it's the life of a racer

Don't worry, it's the price of the ridding. All thing have a price

Yep; don't deny it; but I guess, sadly, even Triumph started their factory in Thailand;
Tell me, how do those thumpers fair with the quick japs inlines when you ride? Do they keep up the pace or you guys ride slow for them?

The Thumpers were not with us. They just got caught at the road block along with us.... and several hundred cars.
So no need for them to keep pace or for us to slow down.

The bikes in our group on Sunday (at one point or another) were :-

Honda Blackbird - (2)
Honda Fireblade (4)
Kawasaki ZZR1400
Suzuki GSXR 1000 (2)
Suzuki GSXR 750
Yamaha R1 (2)
Yamaha R6
Kawasaki ZX636
Aprilia Mille 1000
Ducati 1198

Pretty sure those are a knock-off of a pretty famous flat track racer, Dave Aldana. He's in the AMA Hall of Fame.
