back before i learnt to drive i was eying up the honda varadero....i like bikes like the law uses...nice big cruisers....

i cant see that as the link is banned (damned ebay) but from knowledge they are nice, really nice bikes.

me personally, im scared of bikes...to many of those emergencies programs where motorcyclists are always on the receiving end of a sign, fence or car! even here at work i always hear of people dying on the road outside the camp, as they get caught out.

heres one for ya, my grandad is 75 and has a motorbike. you think thats normal untill i tell you its a kawasaki ninja zx10r (brand new model)...it embarassing when he flogs past me on the A1 or felling by pass....bloody oldies and their toys!

anyways enough of my ramblings, wish you luck for your test etc.

Typo error - to learn in from scratch.

Yep, a '91 FZR600 Kosinski special edition, nearing the end of a very protracted rebuild. To my knowledge, the only one of it's type remaining in the UK.






And a '91 Yamaha Mad Max that I've been using while the Fizzer is off the road. There was a very rare V-Max Kosinski edition too, so when the Fizzer is done I might get the 'Max redone with the same pain scheme.
