Don't be too hard on Scrumpy.
Does anyone have any idea how difficult it must be to compile a fresh list every month?
He has tried many angles and has even resorted to subterfuge to make us click on the link to the voting...  ;D ;D ;D

Hmm, is it for sale? (stupid question, everything is for sale at the right price)

Might be a Laverda that Aileen could ride.

Pewk.
The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle there’s no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.

I was tempted to go and look a no/12 as it wasn't far from home, then I could have rescued it from an inglorious demise, but sense prevailed as I have enough projects on the go for this and my next lifetime.
Forks look interesting on no/2, wonder what they came off.
All pretty nasty mind you, but I will vote coz Scrumpy is doing a damned fine job here, it must be getting hard finding new pics for the Aussies to berate!  ;)
