Well, Oscar, I believe that one TZ750 beats 3 of Ginger's Bullies (even with his legs in shot) - by a margin of one cylinder and a few cubic displacements...



And, on a very sad note, RIP my mate Dobbsy. I feel as if all my limbs are lead this morning, having heard the news from the Isle of Man.

I heard that.
Sad news indeed.

Besides some of Motu's entries, and the crouch throwing in a few nice attempts, sadly, the rest just wouldn't cut it i'm afraid.
Using the parameters set by Oscar, I doubt a bit of crumpet would even look twice at our beloved adv machines.
However, a Vincent Black Shadow, with a suitably attired rider parked outside a nightspot at 2am, under a street lamp with the lightest of drizzle about would indeed do the trick.
Comments/pics please.

Depends on the crumpet don't it. You old(er) buggers can keep K.S.T. I am struggling to come up with a younger version that would jump on a ADV bike though.

One of Mr Egli's creations, I think, so geographically near anyway.

Brent, I do share your fantasy of being a Vinnie owner with a drippy assignation with K S-T.

Must just be our advanced years.

However, there would be as much accommodation for Ms Scott-Thomas' skinny frame on a TZ750C as on an Egli Vincent; just a different type of vibration, and I'd be happy to perform some experiments in that respect.

Yup, should have thought of Ian's bike.

Last time I was in his workshop/factory - a few years ago, now - he was still having trouble getting it running right for any extended period. (Yeah, I am one of the very few who have been privileged enough to be let in.)

Is the Drysdale V8 any closer to being productionised?

Ian's an amazing thinker. Here he is on the Dryvtech 2x2x2 (ie 2 wheels, 2 wheel drive, 2 wheel steer). I believe it's in an industrial museum in the UK now.



Yes, I'd happily carry the object of Clarkson's drooling across a couple of paddocks on this. No designed place for her feet, but a little more imagination may provide me an answer.

Don't know, last time I spoke to him was when I took those photo's at the Broadford track 2 years ago, and he was hoping to get overseas backing.
His website hasn't been updated for several years.

Pity as he is amazing thinker, just like your legend, which I'm surprised no one has put up yet.



And I had the privallage of sitting on No 1


And got a photo of Andrew Stroud at the Burt Munroe meet last year.


Cheers
