what can you say...apparently he's had an RD,didnt like it and dont really 'get' the two-stroke thing...much prefers diesels...likes harleys and raves on about his old enfield bullet...christ on a bike,i thought i was having a mid-life!!! he's gonna find out what two-stroke smells like this summer if he insists on riding with me on his old beast...he's my age but i think he must have had a hard paper-round as a kid and aged prematurely...even my dad thinks enfields were shit when they came out and hes 63...
on reflection,i myself have a soft spot for some bikes other than rdlc's...my CBR600 was a cracking hooligans tool...dare i say it old british bikes appeal in their own peculiar way...my dad always had something when i was growing up and was a bit of a rascal back in his day...i bought him an old triton in boxes for his sixtief berfday...still in bits!!! might nick that back one day...beats a fecking harley!!!
The old fella has a 1975 Duke 350 desmo racer and a Tricatti 500 racer in the garage, used to do the manx all the time. Ace bikes! ;D P.S. A Tricatti is a Triumph Daytona 500 engine in the 350 Ducati frame in case you were wondering.
