Or, if you know what you're doing ...  :P  (Yes, that is his elbow on the deck).
P.s.  Do NOT attempt this on your RGS  ;D ;D


  Got the elbow down on my RGS, then this happened.... ;D

had a bit more luck than you... (happened while the pic in my Avatar was made; just the scratches at the lower edge of the cover, not the ones on the side, they are from Monte Grappa last year during the 60th anniversary  :-[ ...):

Ah, but you're meant to push it back up with your knee, Keith.  Look, I've seen Rossi and others do it, so what's the problem?

Answer: 550lb kerb weight ... :D

Is the guy getting his elbow down Martin Childs ex road tester of Bike magazine?  I remember when MCN were giving away a free poster of that picture, wonder if they have any left?

Scrumpy, I know your were saying about including the Atlas and a Chott as a wild card but.......at the risk of upsetting others............the Aprila Blue Marlin was a great looking cafe racer :o (so much better then the (RSV)SFC1000 :o :o :(, such a shame it never made it past the concept stage. I saw it up close in the flesh and it was awesome.  I know its not a Laverda but an intresting wild card anyway!

Dave,

With the bike in the www.breganzemotorcycles.it thread and a few other concept bikes around there may be sufficient numbers to run a BOM based on what might be. I was only thinking of this last night and will see what I can find. I know what is coming next month ;D  so it wont be until next year.

In addition to the December BOM which will finish prior to the 25th there will be a chance to vote for the Bike of the Year which will be based upon previous BOM winners. This will have the same format as the Summer Special with 3 votes per person.

Le Mans start...two riders with required change and fuel during the event, forecast showers and sunny periods.... bound to be a hoot... ;D ;D ;D

Actually I think it does, as it indicates 'none of the above', an important point to make I think.
Rather that the apathy of not being bothered to vote it shows a vote in it's own right.

Ian your vote is between you and your conscience but I am confused. Did you vote for the orange and silver, orange and blue or the orange black rat.

Any chance of setting up a web cam for the week end? Or a Skype connection so we can hook up and watch. Best thing is it's free.
