Plus the LAW is getting stupid too.

You only ride bikes at silly speeds - IMHO - so the game is getting more difficult.

dont you miss it jerry ???? really miss it ???

ive nearly clocked up 800 miles on new bike and cant believe ive left it this long , kids always came first and although it was never a priority i could have afforded one at any stage but now after riding again i cant believe ive deprived myself of this pleasure for so long

First bike was a Honda MB5 when I was 16, then a long gap till I took my test and got a Kawasaki GPX250, that didn't last long before it was replaced with a Suzuki GSX1100F (with a power screen!). I had that for a couple of years before trading it for a Honda CBR1100XX Superblackbird. Wow what a machine that was! That went over 2 years ago as it just wasn't getting enough use to justify the expense of keeping it on the road; less that 1K miles a year; and I didn't see the point of keeping it off the road.

....And trying to source a good used 125 for some green laneing
You really should try the KMX200 it is absolutely bonkers, especially if the powervalve on it works, (mine didn't!) still ace fun and you can scrape the pegs and get your knee down on road too. Was my favorite bike even over the 750 Monster and CBR 600! LOVE TWO STROKES!!!

It does, and coz no fairing, you can only be bonkers for short periods so dont lose liecence, (hopefully).
Took a test ride last year on the Z1000 and it is fast, fun and all that, Just not quite bonkers enough for me. Think the Triumph is up a bit on power compared to Zed. Still pipe dreams till promotion, (hopefully September ish). Think I'll wait till next Easter tho, maybe get the Triumph 2nd hand then so I dont have to swallow the depreciation so much.
