Show us your... BIKE

I know there's a lot of bikers on the boards, so now the new 'season is upon us I was wondering what everyone else will be riding this summer.

My own bike is an 08 BMW R1200GS. My wife says I love it more than I love her. My answer is 'it depends if its sunny or not'. Never had such a great allround bike before.
Its just had a new frame and front end fitted due to an altercation we had with a deer in October!

Come on, lets see what you got.

Well, as I know I'd do something (more) stupid on something with an engine I'll be getting back onto my bike of the pedal variety this summer.

Was planning on doing it for the past while as I'm tired of being a tad lardy in the middle and wish to avoid already having middle-age-spread before I hit middle age.

Had this for ages - still in very good nik. A few changes of running gear but otherwise a nice ride.

I'm also on the non motorised variety, haven't taken this out for a while but went out today for the first time in a few years and was great, still very unfit and 4 stone heavier than I arrived in UK but hopefully this year will get me back in it and shed it all off again :wink: curse you British for your great food and extremely large range of desserts, chocolates, cakes and biscuits :evil: (hot)

Nice to see some great bikes on here

Derek, I would stay off bikes or your wife will do the same to the other hip. I know mine would!

Neil, you had my perfect garage. Nutter sportsbike for a weekend thrash and a GS for everything else. Nice. I'd swap the kids.

Mike, you had a lovely chopper :o

To the guys with pushbikes, get an engine :D

I took my bike out today for the first time in months. Had starting issues with it and the weekend it went into the garage to get sorted I had my p ussy cat altercation. So 1.5 months down the line since then I decided the sun was shining and the bike was calling. Glad to say both the bike and the hand were up to the job. Just have to be careful and avoid emergency stops as my pinkie power is still not 100%. :wink:

The 990 Adventure was sold to fund the 690R but I can feel another 990 coming my way soon :wink:

Hi Rob,

This is my 4th KTM (Orange)- the last one was a 690 Enduro (single cylinder) where as this is a 950 V-Twin...far to much for me to handle...but I'm going to enjoy trying :wink:

I was crying and very grateful for his help.

Here are my two latest bikes. Since retiring from Grasstrack and Speedway sidecar racing I still had the urge to have a bike for fun, the Yam was great but Wifey hated it so had to go :cry: . I then saw a Harley advertised localy at a good price, so now it's 'life in the slow lane' for me. Wifey tolerates the HD, but would rather I stuck to a car :roll:

Cheryl, I just love the last one.
So ladylike and demure, a very classy photo.
I envy you your free spirit. I can't even drive a car properly.
Or a bicycle.

oh lol :blush:
I must have been about 17 in that last picture.... ive had a lot of bikes in the couple of years since :wink:

I *think* it was the left hander in the left-right turn before the mountain but I don't know any of the names for the corners lol. That's the only track day I've ever done (had only been riding about a year) and as the fast group was full, all the mentallists on fully race prepped bikes decided to flood the 'novice group'. A guy on a ducati nearly had me off as he was trying to keep with his mates, so that put me off doing one for a while.

I'm alot quicker/more confident now and the 750 SRAD keeps encouraging me to book a trackday - it handles so well and is powerful enough to entertain without being over the top like the gsxr1000's. Will prolly go to cadwell again as it's not too far and it's really quite challenging :)
