Local bike meet last week.

Some nice bikes to see.
About 100 yards from the Shakespeare theatre if anyone's ever been.

I warm evening at about 28 degsC, not a good night for leathers.
I took a mate to meet some more mates over there. Bit of a chill out you know?
Drink coffee and talk bikes and shit.


Last few.

I'm curious about some of the exhaust systems on the ducatis.... couple of them look like ebay slip ons.... :pat:

Lots of nice bikes there though...

I know what you mean, I've seen the GP style of slip-ons on eBay for 30 to 50.
But the SC Project are Italian and set you back around $500 just for a slip-on....... F'nuts !
Yes there were some every tasty bikes there, nice to see people making an effort.  :punk:

There were some more agricultural vehicles with ape hangers and very long flimsy forks.
Showing a distinct lack of evolutionary progress and lack of class.

Yeah I saw that cheesy looking SC pipe and I figured it was some Hong Kong shit...  I'm not real crazy about ANY of those real short "shorty" pipes on anything really... I don't even care for the short Akros.... Too fuckin loud, burn your boots/pants etc.

Lots of the good pipe companies are dead and gone now... :sad:

That's a bad ass looking 1100.

I always liked the 91-92 GSXR750 in silver/black zebra stripes like that 1100 you posted.

I was in Birmingham UK seeing family on Tuesday so later in the day we decided to call in at another very large bike meet at Bassets Pole.
Last year a twat of a copper decided to run over a kid on a quad bike with his patrol car because he thought the kid had no license.
End result was the police got bottled by the crowd. There is no love between bikers and the police in the UK.
The story went round that the bill had banned bikes from going to the pub, but we saw no evidence if that on Tuesday.
We left about 6-30pm and bikes were starting to pour in. On a good night they get maybe 1500 bikes there. yes its a big weekly meet.
I was riding solo one night over to Bassetts and I picked up the police helicopter 10 miles away and he followed me all the way in.
Was hovering over me as I parked at MacDees and looked up at him, gave him the bird. Wankers. Nothing to do me for, nothing to prove.

Anyway, here are some nice bike pictures.

Call that a can !!!  Yeah its a baked bean can.

The M and N models of the GSXR750 and 1100 were the best of all of them.
I had a GSXR1100WP for a while and it was a slow ass fookie. Got rid of that fairly quickly.
