A rather large guzzi weekly this week, but only because the more depraved among you demand more girls shit this isn't playboy or hustler ( a nice little 250cc Suzuki by the way), but I have capitulated and there are some really nice ones this week. i also had a whole bunch of images left over from a weekly installment that I didn't get around to using. I had an interesting weekend this past just gone, went dirt bike riding for the first time in shit 8-9 years and I learnt a very important and humbling lesson about being 'bike fit'. Which I was not. I was surprised that I didn't burst my lungs and my foo foo valve was certainly hanging out. It's all very good to jump on an adventure bike or your cafe bike and go for a ride, but this seriously fucked me over. lesson learnt = go get fit.
I'm trying to get my gloves off here, but I can't because my hands have stopped working properly. This is my 98th bike now, I like it a lot but it did not prove to be too strong mechanically.
Hadn't even started and had to make adjustments. You know there's a certain smell that muddy wet dirt bikes makes, it's one you love, but you never miss. Those of you who have pulled a hot steamy one from the boggy mess will know what I mean.
Nah sorry unless your crossing a stream, there is no way you roll your trousers up, this is just GAY
Nice shot of speed, you cant see it, you cant feel it, but you know it's there
Tell me these young boys in this flying crew ( average age 18) weren't the bravest bastards on the planet, now days you'd be lucky to get them out onto the back lawn.
For my mate Dennis, like the writing under the seat edge.
There's clean builds and clean builds, this is what I talk about when I say you can build a bike right or you can fuck it up, by not doing this properly. This one is done right.
What was I supposed to be doing this morning...........Hmmmmm
A motley crew of riders if ever these was......
One guy from the image above is in this image, and there's some pretty fast guys behind him. Ah....
I remember going into this place, staying for about ohhh 3 minutes, and as we left we got spat at, and generally abused by the locals. Guess 3 skinny white guys we should never have gone there.
Sorry, but I know this person has put a lot into their pride and joy, but this is just UGLY
This is just beautiful
Lovely little SR600 , well nice.
My mate had one of these, it was a dog, wheels fell off of it, diffs blew apart, electrics were a fucken joke, the guy that bought it off him blew the water pump off on the way to the ferry. But when they went, they went real well. I recall being on the Himitangi straights going to Manfield for a days bike racing ( what else, a 6 hours actually), sitting on the back and taking a photo at 125mph, it was pretty exciting.
This is a hark back to a golden day image, where people got dressed up to go to the airport, and you were allowed knitting needles on planes.
A Vincent in an Indian, this is actually quite nice.
These things were just awful when the came out, but the iteration below is actually quite nice
What it takes to build a race bike
I like the look of these rods
A great Selfie.
Nice workshop, very nice workshop.
I knew that the ending would make you smile. See you next week.
