If your bike says a lot about you...what if you find someone has the SAME bike?!

So a while back i was only in touch with my little brother now and again, both very busy professionally and/or personally.

We did not even discuss what bikes we had as he said he was going through the newer bike tests the UK brought in. So I assumed it was still the suzuki GS500...

Two years later, we meet up as i trek up to Scotland, and at his place he sees me draw up on 'Rosie' having done a few bits and pieces and fettled her after the initial purchase.

The spooky thing is, he had this weird smile on his face, and he dug out a photo of the first 600cc bike he got after he passed the test.

Obviously it was an XJ600N or naked seca II or diversion! Ok i thought, there are lots of them.

Same back rack, ok it is pretty common too.

Same engine/crash bars.

Same colour.

Talk about nature vs nurture. Completely independently, we had bought not only the same version of the same bike, but specifically opted for the self-same accessories we fitted thereafter.

Spooked me, anyway.

The only thing weirder than my amiable brother having these coincidental choices, would be if someone i really detested, had done a similar thing. That would psych me...

Love the story! And love the last line! Maybe you should have checked the serial numbers!

I thought you'd moved to Gonesville, my friend. Good to see you back again.
