Only trying to establish the facts. I know what a pedant you are for facts!

Sorry Friar Tuck. I'm Hetro but - wouldn't you be better on a site that caters to what you're looking for? I'm sure there are plenty out there. Maybe work on your technique a little too?

Sorry again.

John - Re. Pics .. haven't quite worked that out yet but will soon.

No worries Twinpot! I blame it all on John. He's the the one who wants to everyone's details! You see, he lives in a cave in Wales and doesn't get out much!

Welcome to the forum. I've been on here donkeys years. Made the mistake of selling me bike, to fund buying the missus a car and I only managed to buy the bike back at Christmas. It's currently in the Workshop waiting for its MOT. It's a Fazer 600 which I bought new (the Missus let me!) for my 40th birthday and bought it back in time for my 53rd!

If you have a strange sense of humour, you'll fit right in here, and don't expect any sympathy if you go down with the lurges or squirts, but you will get plenty of advice on how to get rid of it!

And there are plenty of guys here, will help you out if you get stuck on any advice on how to repair/build your trike/bike pride and joy!

Fazer is a great bike. I had a few yamahas over the years DT250 DT400 and a very sorely missed XT660Z Tenere. I have pictures of a lot of my stuff but not all unfortunately. I actually found pics of a TDM I had some years back. Loved it. A bike before it's time.

I'm curious about the boat in the avatar?

TDM 850. I always wanted one of them when they first came out. A real hooligan machine by all accounts at the time.
