Yet more great photos added to this excellent thread, try and keep the wheelies to a minimum mate!! ha ha!!.

Cheers, Keith.

Thanks Keith ..... Regarding the chippy in Anstruther .... yes, the fish and chips were pretty good ..(although we had a long wait in the queu on Saturday.... it's very popular) ......But I wouldn't say it was any better than the fish and chips at the Real Food Cafe up at Tyndrum.... so it's worth popping in if you are heading that way anyway or passing by - but I wouldnt make a long diversion to Anstruther just for the fish and chips.

The best fish and chips I have ever had was down on the Norfolk coast at Walcott at the Kingfisher Fish Bar & Cafe overlooking the beach ...... the Haddock 'special' is legendary and a veritable feast (I have never seen such a huge portion of haddock!) - well worth a visit if you are ever in the area.

Cheers mate. ..... To be honest there wasn't much choice, - there is only 'blue n white' or 'all black' for 2011 available for the UK. So I went for the blue n white as I wanted some colour (the black seemed just to much ....err..... black).

Its not exactly rare Lol! ..... but it's 'classic gixxer'.

Our 'blue n white's' on Sunday -

I quite like the sound of my own new 'pipes' too .......

Yosh USA? Do tell the story on how those became the choice. There must be something I'm totally ignorant of, int'l trade-wise

It was a simple choice really .... Yoshis and GSXR's have a long history together. We didnt like the standard cans on the new bike... The dealer had put the same Yoshis on the demo bike we had a ride on and we liked the look and sound of them .... the dealer then offered to throw in a pair as part of the deal (that, or money off - we chose the Yoshis).

Thanks ... I have to agree ...and not only do they look way better - they also sound way better.

Congrats on the new bike. Looking good.

BTW, you are a bad influence. That's what my wife says anyway. This thread got me off my butt to get a P&S for riding pics. Picked up a Canon Powershot A2200. Nice enough little camera. Here is one of my first shoot while riding attempts.



Nothing special, but there will be more to come. Thanks for the inspiration.

"But Daddy, I wanted the bigger helicopter!" Bride.

Seriously though, great thread and interesting pics. A good part of my linage is from your homeland. Maybe I'll make it there myself someday.....if the economy ever improves that is. I'm glad to see how many people are into bikes in Europe, especially the ladies (lassies?). You rarely see a lady on two wheels in the states, unless they are on the back.....it's a shame really. They are missing out on so much.

Very best regards,

Rich

Sure, that makes perfect sense. I guess what surprises me is that the dealers in your country import from Yoshimura USA rather that plain old Yoshimura (Japan)...must be cheaper.

Sorry to hijack your thread Kamchat;


Used2BeFast2 needs to get to Alabama, lots of Lady riders.

As for me, I prefer the back. I like holding on to my hubby while we ride.
