    I do so miss overtaking on back roads (and no stupid 35mph speed limits)...

    Do you secure that key somehow when it's in the ignition ? Years ago a friend of mine lost his from his fizzy - it fell down a drain so he had to push the bike home.

    No matter how many times I watch a video shot across the pond, the driving in the left lane creeps me out!:p3rry The Rickman looks like a really fun ride, and sounds great! Now how about a damn video with the two smoker!!!

    Thanks for the ride on the Rickman/Buell, that was a bit of fun from my chair. For the Yamaha, you will need the clank, clank, clank of a steel shoe as you walk towards the bike.

    I will be riding out with camera Sunday, but mean time I've been making a side stand that clamps on the swing arm, the original inserts are covered by the exhaust. this should do though.

    While I went off to get the clevis welded I left my pal Bob to design the foot, as you'll see he went the extra mile in design and fab. He assures me that given the bike weight, angle of lean, position on s/arm and fulcrum point this 'foot' is absolutely optimum for the spreading of the load.

    Definately spreading something, hopefully not too much, humanity is already doomed.

    The one thing I can't afford in that picture is the Spyderco knife, must stop shopping late on line... I can't afford to build the bikes or eat lobster but you only live once and technically if you come in to the world with nothing but die in debt then you're in credit :bow
