Gotta say, the brushed ali tank on the SP1 gets my vote.  Any bike with a brushed ali tank has got to go faster, surely!!

Bonnet or Hood?

Double trouble...

So much about this bike is nuts, the twin engines, the ridiculous fuel "taps", the oversized fuel lines, and the twin chain drive, on and on and on....

Air freshner pic of the day.

My seven year old daughter is terrified by this air freshner, (smells of strawberries), and my four year old son loves it!

Just add Rotax

A friend of mine has the above Rotax powered KTM enduro bike, about the same age as my GPZ, and a lot better condition.  He's had the engine out for a while, and recently asked if I could give him a hand putting the engine back in.

 As the engine went in, more bits of the bike had to be removed to make it fit, sort of a chicken and egg thing going on.

Cook 3 trays of sand at 180 degrees celsius for 1 hour, pour into stainless tube, and form.
