Awesome job, interesting tag you have on the chainguard. Is that a parking permit of sort or? Beautiful countryside in the two up pic.

Re: first maiden journey after 7 long dark years

just a quick update of my two Honda's getting a airing in the sunshine. it was a lovely sunday morning and it was a tough choose which bike to take out first to blow the cobwebs out of.

The picture is from a summer evening ride with my son Luke a few weeks ago.
very nice. we here in the U.S. really like the looks of the EU Blades

stainless lines really takes the "delay" out of braking, and gives them a DEFINITE feel. cool pic with your son too!
