Two wheels good; four wheels also good (17/29)

It’s that time of year when this man’s thoughts turn, inevitably, to…








I am not, in brand terms, a ‘manufacturer’ kind of person. I passed my test on a Kawasaki GPZ500S (pictured) and therefore have a bit of a soft spot for them.

I do like my former school-friend Robert’s




Triumph Tiger



It is a totally different animal to the GPZ500, but it does give a very nice ride, even though it is a little high for me to be totally comfortable.

But I know a guy, a thoroughly dependable, sensible, nice guy, who is selling his





Yamaha YZF-R1




And he isn’t asking too much for it.


Very, very, very tempting.

In other news…

This Sunday (February 19th), the Ace Cafe in that north London (North Circular Road, NW10) is hosting an Overland And Adventure Travel Bike Day.

I might be there, in the guise of pretending to write stuff.

If you fancy coming along (I do recommend the all-day vegetarian breakfast!), let me know.

We could meet.

Or not.

    That Yammy looks a bit of a boy-racer’s machine! The Tiger’s nice and you soon get used to the more upright position.

      Have you not yet realised that I am a boy racer? I didn’t get on with the Tiger because I have little legs.

    Ohhhh, that’s one seriously sexy looking bike. There’s nothing like combining a big, throbbing engine with some leather 🙂
