2012 Classic bike show.

Hi, I'm afraid this blog will again be about motorcycles, particularly older Motorcycle.
Before i start this blog perhaps i might update you all on us. Sue is now nearly 100% (for a Crinckly, lol), first time for years, As far as my health goes nothing has changed.I went to see the Surgeon about my Hip last week, he didn't even look at it but said i will see you in 3 months you need to lose more weight, bloody marvelous, i have lost exactly 5 stones in 5 years!!!!. I wouldn't mind if he gave me a goal but nothing.
Anyway had a great day at this show, met lots of friends, afraid i had to use Mobility Scooter as it covered 6 Aircraft sized hangers. Sue bought herself a new Crash Helmet and i bought some riding Gloves.
No Joke of the day as i forgot to include it before these pictures so blogger wanted to put it on top.
Post again very soon   Click on any picture to enlarge it and  see more detail.

 I really love these Honda CX's made into Cafe racers, especially the Red one.
This is brand new Kawasaki W800, i know it looks like an older bike, ie Triumph Boneville but thats exactly what they hope, as there is quite a big market for Classic looks with the Japanese finish/quality and reliability.I would really love one of these.
