My bikes

Maz
Hi again, all.

Just thought I should upload pictures of all 4 of mine seeing as I just had to send pictures to my insurance company for 'Agreed Value Insurance'.

They're all runners and they all get used, but getting off the CB500T straight on to the FJ1200 can be a bit of a shock!!

You certainly have some nice bikes there. Nice to see the 79 still has its 4-4 pipes!

Welcome and don't hesitate to join in on our somewhat questionable activities!
The ride IS the adventure. The destination is just to get gas!

I'm loving that stripped down Goldwing, I bet that thing screams down the road. All the bikes look really good.
It's only illegal if you get caught.

If at first you don't succeed, use more lighter fluid

95% of Harley Davidsons ever made are still on the road... The other 5% made it home.

Thanks Truck,

it's one of the very first batch in the UK in '75. It still surprises riders of some 'modern' bikes away from the traffic lights, despite having 80,000 miles on it! It's been looked after but I've got a few repairs to do - It's suffered from a common Goldwing problem where the cross tube that the centre stand is welded to has split at each end. The engine will have to come out so that I can weld the tube. Winter's coming so it'll give me something to do in the evenings!

Hi Vingtsous..you spotted it! It's actually Ford "Roman Bronze". I always thought the original Glory Brown was too dark for my taste so I opted for the Bronze. Not original but I think it looks OK.
