That's the one, my brother. The black and whites are my mum and dad, the one with the Vincent and sidecar is me and my mum, the one with my dad on the DOT is in front of the house where I was born. The lot across the street with the cars parked used to be a house until the Germans did a little aeriel urban renewal in the 40's. The rest are me and different bikes I owned, The Shovel in #7 started out as a frame, oil tank and rear wheel sitting on a 4x4 in my garage went through a number of different configurations over the years. It was a lot of fun..

You're a native born Brit. That explains your attachment to that horrible food.

Guilty as charged I'm afraid. I only lived there for a few years before we moved to Canada then here. Never lost the taste for bland food and fish with every meal though

I've got 6 bikes, lot's of high powered ones among them, but every time I get on my 37 hp KLR I'm reminded why you don't need anything more to have fun.

You guys are making me want to find some good story-making opportunities on my GS500F. Right now I've only pushed it when I'm alone on twisty back roads.

I've had the best times on the lowest powered bikes. I have a Yamaha SR500 that I toured Germany on in 1988. I've owned that bike for over 20 years. I rode it down the Blue Ridge Parkway to the FSSNOC rally a few years back.

I also spent three vacations in a row exploring the Italian and Austian Alps on a clapped out XT600.
