Motorcycles - I hope this isn't off topic
But I know from many messages on many threads that a lot of our friends use both engine powered and human powered 2 wheelers.
Maybe people would like to read about our best rides - machines and experiences.
Lambretta LI 125, age 16, went from North Yorkshire to Dorset and back, 400 mile round trip, in rendezvoux with my first girlfriend. I wouldn't recommend it
Triumph Tiger Cub, 200 cc, used it every month Yorkshire to Brighton, 200 miles each way, for 3 years. I would wholeheartedly recommend it
Yamaha YAS 1, 125 2 cylinder 2 stroke. What a wonderful bike. Used for long motorway trips, over 7,000 over 5 years, it'd sit on a motorway at 70 mph, vastly more than anyone could expect from a 125.
Kawasaki Z400. Unfashionable - but oil tight and a better copy of a Triumph Tiger than the original. Yorkshire to Fez in Morocco twice, and my commuter all around Yorkshire doing a training job, going to shift change mills with an overhead projector on the carrier, winter and summer
Ducati Sport 750. Got to love it. I couldn't recommend it. Definitely high maintenance
Ducati ST2. 2 up to the Med twice. However, as above
Honda Africa Twin. Absolutely nothing to criticise. Wow
Once again, I trust this isn't impertinent in a cycling thread.
However, if I were to compare the m.cycles to the pedal cycles, I'm equally fond of my Specialised Sirrus Triple (1990 lugged steel) as I was of my Africa Twin - neither the fastest, neither am I, but strong and steady
