Here we go again

« on: February 24, 2018, 09:44:42 AM »
So the Serow has moved on albeit only about 4 miles away it sold easily I had 5 or 6 people interested even without advertising it but it was a good example.
Anyway here is its replacement, I seem to have changed bikes every year recently hoping to keep this a while.

I Hope you enjoy the bike as much as Brian (Hilldweller) enjoys his.
Either the bike is highly under rated, or Brian is the worlds best riding 70+ year old rider in Europe.
500+ mile a day rides across Spain in the company of litre + motorcycles didn't phase him or the 500X.
It's not that many years ago we considered a 500 as a BIG bike.
A fender extender on the front will save on an awfully of road crud thrown on the header pipes and engine.
A bike is for life, not just for summer.

Nice bike, mister!
Old enough to know better, but still too young to care.

I have both, extender and hugger.

I do yearn for more bhp but the sensible side keeps saying "you'll lose your licence". I do enjoy a bit of acceleration. But on trips like the Hardknott Pass it's as good as any bike. 150kmh down through Spain was no problem.

It has a hugger fitted &  I've ordered a fender extender, I recently picked up 3 points so it'll be powerful enough for me, longest ride I'll do is to Kinlochleven for the pre65 trial in May.

A tidy looking bike. I thought it might suit my frame and checked the ergonomics but still a bit too small for my knee and other joint problems.

It will exceed all UK speed limits with ease, it's so easy going it makes the 30 limit feel like walking.
