Looks like the stealth moderator/coward is back.

Speaking of GPTB I turned 47 today, what did you guys buy me?

I have an old Triumph and Norton pins I had since 1970. They are classics!

At least I made "dipstick" on every one! That means I pi$$ed him off way more than you guys did.

If you were here I'd buy you a drink, (separate from the GPTB deal) since you're not I'll have one in your honor! Happy B.D. Gramps!

I'll hoist a Guiness to you at lunch!



Is 47 considered antique enough for the GPTB?



And, while I'm at it, is there a Chapter for those whose hair turned loose before it turned grey?

My understanding is the new 1050 motor has an EFI sourced from Keihin, replacing the Sagem unit. It is supposed to be fully adjustable, a la the pre-2002 powerplants. I've been told the new motor has a tad more power than the latest 955, but the delivery is more like the pre-'02 motors. Which is a good thing.

I am of the school that says that the only "Sport Tourer" in the "Sport Tourer Shootout" was the Sprint ST. The ZZR might slot in as a "Sport tourer" and the rest were "Medium Tourer's". This was not an original thought by me but once it was put forward I found myself endorsing it. The VFR is a fine bike but if I was in the market for a "Sport Tourer" the Sprint ST would, for several reasons, win hands down.

You can have the piston out of my Magna that the valves dropped through.



Should I bronze it first? I'm building up quite a museum of examples of "superior" Japanese quality.
