    Thanks for the cool comment.
    The 996 was an SPS Carl Fogarty Edition, I bought it and the 851 from the same guy. Both super low mileage but changed the springs, and enjoyed them all.

    This is sick! You must have a large warehouse for these babies. Which one of them do you love the most?

    Beautiful - that's spacious! Great signage and wall decor; TV, fridge, couch to complete the package. I can almost smell the beer after a ride.

    OK, I'll just say it ... I'm a little jelly :D

    Nothing expensive or beautiful but I had a lot of fun on these two, trackdays a plenty on the R6, Cadwell Park being my favourite.

    RG500 was phenomenal as was the RD500. Never rode an NS400R. Don't recall ever seeing one either. Bit of an oddball with 3 cylinders and 100cc less than the RG/RD. How do the RG and NS compare?

    Don't know. The NS400R arrived too late in the season to ride. Went into the workshop and got stripped to get squared away. I'll figure out what it rides like in the spring. In general things have moved on quite a bit since the RG500. The 14 year more recent RS250 and V Due are in another world compared to the RG.

    My latest bike, 2019 Honda Monkey 125.
    Just used to go to the shop for the newspaper or just a ride on a nice day.

    Big brother is a 2017 CRF100L Honda Africa Twin.
    Great for city traffic and tarmac, nice on dirt roads but nothing too radical, I'm too old for that stuff now.

    This is my favorite......the TT is more famous but Ulster is faster and a race not a timed event with many of the same riders.

    Yep Irish road racing championship is incredible also. Racing at the TT is totally nut, but racing on these roads with a pack of others riders is just plain madness.

    I'm big into Harleys always have been (not that I'm that old) but I do respect other brands contrary to popular belief of how Harley owners are depicted. I've had many HDs over the years, I have two and half currently (the half is the iconic I'll get to it someday project :() but I'm most proud of this softail I actually started and finished within 4 months (oh those carefree days when I was single and didnt have a mortgage :D)

    Purple paint was when I received the bike as a trade for an 07 civic that I had sitting around back in 2012

    Black paint was finished project 17 weeks later. Built not Bought!! :cool: (and no it's not leaking oil like EVERYONE points out, I just washed it :p)

    Also pictured is my S.G. Bought not built :whistling:

    And last but not least, this beautiful, mildly customized Shovelhead at the parking lot just stole my heart ::love::::love::

    God this one is gorgeous. I'd probably die pretty fast if I had the chance to ride one though.

    Did over 7000 miles on this 97 K1100LT during Dec and Jan just gone, from south Florida through Southern USA to Cali and a little tour around socal. Weather wasn't the greatest for the trip but I would get on a plane and buy another bike and do a western USA roadtrip again tomorrow if I could.
    Bike was amazing and I would buy another BMW straight away. Mine had 97k miles when I brought it and an abs fault light.
    Sold it in socal with an abs fault light and nothing else wrong with it.
    Would happily and comfortably carry me and my 3 boxes loaded for 4-10 hours a day if I wanted it to and then I could take the boxes off and carve canyons all day with no questions.

    First bike was an 06 Kawasaki ER6N and that was an awesome, agile bike. perfect for country and mountain roads and still plenty fast enough for me to get used to.

    Next bikes will likely be something else BMW for longer tours and a ducati 8/9 something for drooling over and shorter day blasts but need to settle a bit first

    See my posted threads for my factory tour of the Ducati, Lamborghini and Ferrari factories if youd like more; https://omegaforums.net/threads/a-few-pictures-of-some-lovely-italian-machines.81463/
