    Oh man.....that Pegaso Cube in the foreground brings back an avalanche of memories.
    Had 2 exactly like this, the better half had 3 black ones, same model...our place turned into Pegaso-HQ of the Anglo-world for a few years spending endless nights on the keyboard to help and solve issues or spread work-arounds with the Yanks and Poms and everybody else.
    The daughter scanned the entire 180? page factory workshop manual, the only copy ever sold in AUS....to serve the global owners group with something, anything! official. She still got that jar of small coins and notes that the guys mailed in as a thank-you. :-)
    (if you need a copy of the original 1998 pdf, just holler)

    Did around 200.000km combined on those bikes we and the Aussie-Pegasisti's owned, fabbed lowering links in small-number runs and dished them out to the shops, imported batches of bits from Greece and Germany etc...then started all over with the first batch of Zook DL1000s in 2002. Some just never learn :-).
    Thanks for the flashback.

    Working in both Hamilton and Auckland on 6 wheels and spotted this from the southwestern motorway. This is half the yard.

    I go past there too. Apart from the hurt caused to that business and the fellow kiwis they employ, as a motorcyclist I cannot lie, thats a glorious sight.

    A few picture from last year, happy days. We are planning to do more gravel road this year on the 1200GS. Mrs RP67 getting used to the dust... 20191031_140219.jpg 20200209_122947.jpg 20200201_095703.jpg 20200118_140740.jpg 20191115_125137.jpg 20191031_140219.jpg 20191031_133754.jpg
