    Friend of mine has a 1972 250 pursang for sale. He said it is in very good condition.

    I've got an acquaintance that has somewhere between 20 and 30 Bultacos, all in pristine condition. And he rides them. I'm not personally looking for a vintage bike, but if I was, that Pursang would be near the top of the list.

    I've already done my time in Havelock. It's gonna take way more than a tag to get me to go back.

    Clue:
    Go to a lovely city known for it's colored bears, scenic waterfront and Pepsi-Cola. Find a street that bears the Royal title of the current British Monarch and go about mid-way along it's run through town. If you're looking at a setting sun, you might ride right by it, so it's best to ride from southwest to northeast and it will be as easy as pie. Should you decide to take the Google Car on a recon, find this mural and then the look directly ahead to the white unpainted stepped wall. It's painted now :D.

    It sure is painted now. If I can get over there this weekend, I might even stop in for a haircut. :-)

    It looks like they are painting quite a few new ones in that area.

    Looks like this thread kind of died on the vine here... I've been off the bike for the last several weeks, healing from a 5th metatarsal fracture. Hope to be back out riding soon, and will try to get this moving again.

    Nothing exciting, I'm afraid. It was a driveway tip over on the Multistrada. It was after work. I was tired and not paying a lick of attention. Hopped on the bike and next thing I know I'm going over. Didn't even make it out to the street...

    Thanks! The toes are fine. I only got the 5th met, but it was a long fracture which is why it took 3 screws.
    I just got back into a tennis shoe today. Feeling much better. Took the Triumph out for a short ride this afternoon. Beautiful day for a ride.
