Default It's a man thing......

So, last December I picked up my Zephyr and within 3 weeks the OH had got rid of his old VT and picked up a Daytona, bigger better and faster than my bike obviously.

So last month I finally got my new shiny bike.

Now I have 2 decent bikes, the Zeph and the Intruder, and he has just the one. He still has his Magna but it's actually smaller than my Intruder.

So this week the Magna got chopped in, and this came home........



Don't get me wrong, I'm delighted for him cos he's wanted one for as long as I can remember, but ffs! Every time I get a new bike he has to have one too......... Bloody men...........

Nice bike, gotta love them Maxxii, now get him to visit www.vmaxchat.co.uk for advice on how to get it to handle and stop, as well as it goes, very clean looking for a early Max.

Default Bikes and men.

Not quite true, Yambabe.

My better half is a bit unsure about getting out on her own bike, she has tried hard but has a real confidence issue. So I have bought her a Honda VT500. Work on turning it into a trike starts next week as soon as I have cleared enough space in the workshop. (She has earned it.)

Nice looking Max. I remember the article in Bike magazine when the V-Max was first launched. First sentence in the article"If you have the arms of a gorilla and the intelligence to match, THIS is the bike for you". I fell in love with them but never got round to owning one.

Hope you both have fun on the new bikes.

Chopper.

Lovely bike, they still do it for me and I've had mine for 16 years!
Junk the silencers and fit some 4-4 slash cuts, sounds gorgous!!

for some strange reason my fj's like that, a bit of a pain to stop......might have to invest in some more calipers or a parachute
