    I worked in bike industry before I got some sense and turned to IT. I was involved with Geoff Johnsons GPz900R production class win at the Isle of Man in 1984........ now that makes me feel old.

    I have a mint GPz600R

    Re: Edugeekers and Their Motorcycles

    I have a Kawasaki ER-5
    Good all-rounder
    I do find the VFR a bit expensive on tyres/fuel/maintenance. Especially doing 50mile per day all year round - so it's probably not in quite as good condition as edie's GPz.
    Will get a car license on day...

    Re: Edugeekers and Their Motorcycles

    have to think about this...

    TS50
    RD125LC
    TS125
    RG250 Gamma X2
    AR125
    X5
    RGV250
    VFR400R Nc24
    CX500
    VFR400R Nc30
    Transalp 600
    VFR750

    Almost had a 350LC, but just missed that era and went down the gamma/RGV path and then to the 400 greys.

    phreaky
    The reason I came to owning the CX was because I borrowed it for a trip from kent to Newquay, Luckily I did get to Newquay but blew it up on the return trip! (via Bristol on the M4 IIRC)
    Big end went, I bought it of the mate who lent me it, and had to rebuild it.
    Particularly strange coincidence as they have a reputation of being bullet proof!
