Cool day ..

Spring is starting to peek its head over the horizon at the moment here in the UK <cue start of snowstorms I guess >

Anyway today I spent riding on my K, nicely loosened up with 3,500 miles on it. It's been at times a bind running it in over the winter. Forcing myself to use the bike when the car with all its additional comforts beckoned .

Well worth it 'cos today the girlfriend noted how much more confident she could notice I am with it, and how fast it was. A Buell rider was a little miffed at getting left for dead at one point, left him trailing

He retaliated by squeezing through some traffic gaps when he caught up again ... which were way too tight to squeeze the K with panniers through!


There's a fluidity and smoothness about riding this thing fast it just flows from bend to bend and keeping it a gear under what I'd normally do for tour riding resulted in a real nice sports ride.

I'm just in the final stages of building a new garage to keep the toys in, and the interests of filling the garage with toys I have done a deal to add a Kawasaki ZX12-R to the stable

this one http://www.gwynfryn.co.uk/images/bikes/zx12r.jpg

... woo hooo so now there's a fast sports bike, a fast touring bike and an F650 Funduro trail bike, as well as my daughters SK90PY and Kwasaki AR50.

"He who dies with the most toys wins "
