Thanks. I have to keep giving permission to guys to allow their wives to see my pic so that they can be 'influenced' that my style is 'the norm'!!

There is a hazard to this bike's placement though. I have to squeeze my butt cheeks so tight to get through the door - but that's really a topic for another forum!

Rode mine in 25c heat in heavy traffic this afternoon, not nice, I’ll stick to early mornings.

Yep, much prefer the early ones. Fewer insects, too!

Re: What have you done to/for your bike today?

Only plus side is that negotiating heavy traffic and having to filter between two lanes of slow traffic on an unwieldy sportsbike definitely sharpens up your riding skills, I feel I’ve achieved something when I finally get home.

Took the 93 to Devil's Bridge via the dams, very pretty ride, but 200+ miles on tight , narrow, roads really makes me feel old when my neck and wrist are singing their complaints. Variobars are starting to look mighty appealing.

Didn't do anything - except take a few pics.
(Not bragging here, but very proud of my small 'family' - with an Italian step-child, Madeleine Victoria)

Fantastic collection Nigel, your biggest achievement however is owning that many bikes without a garage!

You need to sort that number plate out on the Erion Nigel, canít you use some spacers to straighten it up.

Cheers, George.

I honestly hadn't really noticed it, which surprises me, but then again, I haven't had it out much.

I know what's happened though, because it's an 8 x 6 plate, and I accept the bottom has kicked in. Pic shows the original 9 x 5 plate which sits better. Will rectify tomorrow and update!

So far it’s been a good summer here in the UK, despite busy roads due to British Grand Prix this weekend, I got out early and met some mates in Buckingham for breakfast. Great ride there from Oxford, horrible ride back as the roads were packed.

I thought my 26 year bike still looked good against a couple of brand new Beemers.
