Took the wife's 250 Hornet for MOT today. Should be OK, I did 60kms on it on Sunday and everything still seems to work. Very Happy

Me and Mrs.StrokerBoy made the short trip across the bridge to Barton Bike Night on the LC.

The queues to get in and out weren't bad this year, and I found a decent place to park. Getting home was made more interesting by a huge lorry that decided to roll over on the roundabout. Shocked

Get one Rob. They're not fast, the brakes are terrible and the handling isn't great either (especially two-up, and even considering the mods) but they put a smile on your face like nothing else. For me anyway.

I've owned the 125LC, a few 350LC F2's and a 500LC, but never the 250/350.

Always planned to, but never got around to it.

Maybe it's about time I did.

Cupboard in the garage was falling apart, so I fixed it today. That involved pushing all the bikes out of the way first. Which meant I might as well hoover the garage carpet while I had chance.

And while they're out, I might as well fire 'em all up and send some more smoke towards next door's big family barbeque eh ? Naughty
