Anyone into motorbikes?

Before getting married I was seriously into bikes and besides a couple of mk2 golfs and a mini that's all I had for years.

I was especially into 2 strokes, going through tzr's couple of lc's etc and this one here(just found the pic and brought back memories.....)




I sold this one to fund a suite when I moved in with the then girlfriend A guy I knew in the RD club made the expansion chambers, I spent alot on tuning and little bits and pieces for it. The sound was amazing amd the smell of two stroke oil was what I lived for.

The allure of a woman eh

Used to ride a bit of Motocross when was younger, then Enduro and Hare and Hounds but sold my last Bike at College and SWMBO won't let me get another, as much as I'd liek one.

Re: Anyone into motorbikes?

Yeah I liked mk1's but somehow never managed to get one.

Now that we're settled in our house and the wife's got a nice estate and I've got my work van I wouldn't mind getting onto two wheels again, but more in the form of a trials bike! A montesa or something... plenty of landowners I get along with round where we live so that could be cool for unwinding a bit and reliving my dougie lampkin dreams
