Well just drive carefully - you know how dangerous some of those roads are on the Yorkshire Moors

Nice looking bike  :-))  Reminds me of my yoof ( modern spelling ) I used to ride ( but not all at the same time ) a Honda CB250G5 ( with L plates ), heavy and slow. Honda 250 Superdream ( don't laugh ) big and slow.   Honda 550four,  smooth as silk.  Honda CB750f1 four stroke 4, lovely bike, hit a Hillman Avenger side on at 70 wrote it off and then re-built it. Kawasaki Z900, fast as you like, bulletproof engine, not good handling so i changed the swing arm bushes, new tyres etc..........and no difference at all!!!!!    Kawasaki z1000, very fast, crap handling. Ah the good old days  :}  Now? I am 51, married, two kids, mortgage, shelf stacker job, broke, no hair, and my next exciting ride will be...................a VW 1.2 Polo!!!!!!! ( blimey, not much bigger than my last bike!!!!!!!  Have a great time with your lovely looking bike but take care!!!!!!!!!    Regards, Dave.

Nice machine. You're never too old to ride. That said, a member of our club was ganged up on by his family and had his bike taken away, along with a couple of other toys............he's 92 and still riding (or at least, was, until they took his bike away).
Me...I'm 65 and lounge back on a Golding for the long trips, but for real fun I bring out my 1982 Honda CBX or 1974 Honda CB750.
  AS Paul says.......its absolutely exilerating. I wouldn't change the experience for the world.

I rode of years back home. Last two bikes were Zx9R Kwakers.


I wish I could ride a bike here, I really miss it.
Too dangerous though. The legal size limit for solos is 150cc in most cities. Car drivers have no concept of vulnerable road uses, or yielding. Most have never seen a bike that will go faster than 60. There are bigger bikes here, excluded from city areas, and most are illegally registered as something smaller, in another place from where you live and ride.
