me falling for Mr MC’s “my R1 cant carry luggage” line before backroads trek to yorkshire from oxfordshire 🙄 😆
Mr MC’s R1 half way through a days blast into wales (elan valley?)
and in the Wicklow Gap, Ireland, hiding a tatty 929 Fireblade and mysteriously carrying luggage…

The winter project, although I’ve been too busy to do much so far!Posted 7 years ago
1986 Yamaha SRX 608cc, mods to follow:
Wheels to be changed to lighter TZ ones or the later srx single shock ones depending on which looks better.
Swingarm to be replaced with one off a FZR 400 with slight mods and addition of twin shock mounts.
Single seat unit off RS125 with alto of mods. and custom sub frame.
Rear shocks to be replaced with some 3.5″ stroke Diverese Duellers with Ti springs.
Forks making some cartridge emulator pistons and shim stacks, if I don’t like these, maybe another set of forks and yokes.
The engine is being rebuilt too, but I’ve another one that will be built into an overbored ‘grenade’ engine with a bit more power over the next year or so.
Brakes are good as standar as it’s pretty light but will assess these further when it’s on the road.juanMember

My silly green SV650
Take one budget commuter, add 20% horsepower, remove 15% weight, season with Dymags, Ohlins and GSXR suspension and top off with a DIY paint job. It doesn’t get as much love these days but it’s still a wee beast.
On its way to the other end of another country

audiophile. Yes, thats a Raleigh Aero Pro Burner 🙂 25th anniversary edition that caught my eye for an investment. Alas its sold now 🙁
You may also see the ladies Muddy Fox Courier behind. Was my mums for many years. I gave that away, too knackered to do anything with. My dad still has his blokes version though.Posted 7 years agotakaMember
ive got a slightly modified one of these in the same mankey blue it chuggs along the dual carriageway at 55mph which is plenty fast enough on my way to collage and is nice to ride on the back roads on the way home when the temperamental headlight works!
