Urmm, hello?

Post by Scorpyn » Mon Jul 24, 2017 1:22 pm

Yeah, it happened. After years and years of acting like a complete nutter on sport bikes, I've grown up. Kind of.

I have graduated from desiring lots of power, plastic and prattery to just desiring the prattery.... so I now ride an Ape supermoto, a road going CR500 supermoto, a massively kicked out Harley chop and the latest of the bunch, just purchased today, wait for it.....

A Divvie Cafe Racer. Based on a 98 XJ600S. It's a bit nice. Some numpty broke the clock mount but it'll give me something to do instead of grinning at it like an idiot. And I have the clocks on the way.

So yeah. But no pics yet cos the upload won't let me....

Amyway, hi there. Good to be on board.

Wow! I love your Cafe Racer. That headlamp with your fairings looks really good.
