Sunnie Bonnie ride

Beautiful weather on this Saturday morning saw the bike taken up along the shady swoops of Sheridan Road; delicious. New rear shocs are a smooth treat over rough spots.

25 Years on…

When the Ninja 900 (ZX900A, GPZ900R) came out in ’84 it caused a stir in the motorcycle world; lightweight, narrow, strong as a horse (or 105 of them!) and sporty lookin’ too! Here’s the ’85 I owned for a few years, great bike with heaps of old world power. Although just running in the ‘States for a few years it lasted in Europe and Japan for over a decade surpassing two other successive models.

Well, Kawasaki has a new Ninja in their stable, less race honed but more everyday riding intended. Offering fast fun, far fun, fabulous fun! It’s 1000cc engine a perfect blend of useability, yet turn it on and it growls. And, at $11,000 darn good value for money in relation to other offerings. The new is the new, new!

A Wee Ride up a Hill

Here’s Joe Brown, hard mountain man of the 50’s and 60’s, riding what looks like a Speed Twin up Snowdon in North Wales. Well it’s one way to get to the craggy Cloggy over on the north side!
