My 1st motorbike! at 16 yrs old. It's a Puch something or other. A Yam fizzie it ain't :-( No pictures of actual bike, but this must be similar.
This is what my 2nd bike looked like. It's a Yamaha DT250. I took and passed my motorbike test on one. (I was about 17½ I think)
My 3rd bike was a Ossa 250 Trials bike like this. Not road legal... Purely for laughs... (Had this one until around 1987 I think)
My 1st 'back to biking bike'. Yamaha FZ750 in Marlboro racing colours by Dream Machine. (Bought in 1993)
Took the FZ750 on holiday to North Yorkshire. Here it is at Moors End on the NYMR.
Took FZ750 to LeMans in 1994. With my mate Dave (Suzuki GSF1100?).
On way back from LeMans, we dropped in at St Naziare. The old Submarine Pens.
BMW F650 Funduro. Don't know what I was thinking of here. Fancied something less powerful and different I suppose! Didn't last for long!
Suzuki GSF 600 Bandit. A nice naked bike. Used to get plastered in flies!
I did like this bike. I fitted drag bars to make it more comfortable and planned more.
Here you can see the Renntec sports rack fitted.
Honda CBR600fv. I wanted a faired bike for protection. Not as practical as expected. Not fast enough!
Honda VFR750. Temporarily back to 2nd hand for this one. Very nice bike with stage 1 tuning. Race can, Dynojet/Filter kit and set up on Dyno etc.
Yamaha YZF-R1. 2000 model. Now we're talking! This was the best. Awesome.
Next to the West Somerset Railway nr Williton.
Personal number plate very suitable! Now with Hi-Level race can.
What a bike!
Triumph Tiger 955i. 2002. Taken outside my Sisters house. Fun bike, but it wasn't as comfortable over long distances as expected.
The Hoburne bikers club ride to Wookey Hole/Chedder Gorge. circa early 2003?
My new 2003 model Yamaha YZF-R1. Back to an old friend!
