Title: Orange defector
Post by: ogden on March 13, 2017, 08:54:52 PM

Hello

I've been shopping. It's not as orange as the last bike I bought, but I'm hoping it'll be a bit more reliable.

Intro, eh? OK. Bought a Honda when I was 16. Bought another one 23 years later, albeit only to run a set of tyre warmers. Had a couple of Kawasakis, Yamahas and KTMs in between, and a fair few Suzukis. Still miss my RGV. Now getting old and sensible, so bought a BMW. Spend the summers racing a pre-injection R6, and do a few foreign trips each year, usually to watch other people racing bikes even mankier than mine.

Anyway, here's the bike. It looks like all the other white ones, plus some filthy old luggage:

Now, anyone want to buy an SMT that smokes like a beagle? No, thought not.

Nice intro!
Mine also looks like most white ones, think also have no more plans to make it different maybe by the end of the year, mayyybe.
Enjoy the "sensible" XR   :008:

I'm only just 40, so I had to google that one.

I hadn't realised what a cliché I've become. Turn 40, and within a couple of weeks decide to sell a gixer thou and buy a BMW. Pipe and slippers next, I reckon.
