    Hell yes and thirty years ago I would be begging for ownership of the Yamaha. I guess it's an age thing LOL

    Yes, I prefer the look of that (mostly), but I'd have to ride both old and new versions, to decide on which one I wanted!

    Not for me. It's simply a looks preference thing, and the fact that I'm not a 'serious' biker, in the way I am a car driver, which is why I drive a car for a proper enthusiast.

    If I ever got another motorbike, it would be one of those Triumphs, and used purely for puttering around the Welsh countryside, during nice weather (and also polishing and ogling at), so as with anything else in life, you simply pick the right 'tool' for the job!

    Nice looking cafe racer Norton here. Quite likely a 650SS.

    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Oh Jesus Geoff. A Norton featherbed no doubt crafted from Reynolds 531. And then they put that bloody motor in it. Damn and bloody blast, I was just slightly too late to really appreciate one of those by riding one. I also adore the Interstate. You see that's it for me. It all lost its shine when Yamaha invented the Deltabox sub frame and the rest followed into motorcycle drearydom. That would be around the time everything became shrouded in plastic shit. I always wanted an Eddie Lawson replica to be truthful. That was as much of a fairing as I ever needed.

    Yes Marco I so understand. Sue and I have the Harley for exactly that kind of use on blue sky days. Each to their own but I love those new type Triumphs especially the Speed Triple R.

    Very cool, Geoff, but perhaps not in that rather garish blue! Keep it simple, and in black

    I rather like this Laverda, which for me ticks the right boxes for a classic racing-type bike, with Italian style and chicness:



    If it were in the right shade of red [maybe 1960s 'Alfa Romeo Spider'], or perhaps even 'Lamborghini yellow', it'd be uber-cool! The '1970s orange' has a certain something about it, though.

    Nice, Grant. The first two are my favs, but for entirely different reasons. I love the rather 'brutal', but purposeful look of the first one, which would be my 'street bike', and the second is just STUNNING looking, in terms of what a racing bike [with soul] should look like!

    Now, if that Laverda had been in the same red as the Ducati....

    The last one (Harley) is ok, but I don't like the wheels, especially that rather odd, skinny looking thing at the front....

    Marco.
