My other bike is a.......

Post by NeilM » Fri Nov 22, 2019 5:14 pm

Just for fun I thought I'd ask what else nestles in your garage/ shed / front room.

As well as the MT500, my other bike is a 1974 Triumph T140V which has been waiting sine 1994 for me to gather enough enthusiasm to turn many boxes of bits (that's the way I got it) back into a working machine.

Thanks to the Mt, I have some ideas about building it up as an offroad capable custom.

So, what's yours?

Apologies, I hadn't spotted there was another section that was more appropriate, Admin, please move or delete as you see fit.

I recently bought a Honda XBR500. The handle bars have been changed for higher CBX550 ones and I'm going to move the footrests forward (not as supple as I used to be!). I find the MT350 to be perfect in this respect. Dave.

I have a couple of Hondas:

Honda Pan-European ST1300, excellent for longer rides and inclement weather. Also fun around the country lanes, but heavy to move around at very low speeds. Got to think about parking in confined spaces, otherwise I might be stuck for some time.

Honda CB500F: fills in the gap between the MT and Pan. Light and nimble, with reasonable performance, but a lot of gear changing and runs out of steam at 70mph.

I have a few but by ffffar the best for grins and even more uncertainty is a 1967 Norton P11 Desert Sled. One of the first batch to be exported to Berliner Motorcycles March 1967, its not perfect but I like it. I’m a ridist, not a purist.
