Quite a collection!

nice nice! Nothing wrong with that, trains are easy (When they don’t strike) and air rifle comps are fun!!

what air rifle do you have and what comps do you shoot?

@ratchersyes it was uncomfortable, you had to mould yourself to it at 6' and yes it did want to sit up if you opened to taps in a right hander.😁 Wasn't really happy below 80 and she'd have a little drift when pushed. What a bike. 😍 I.O.M in 1990 for the GP. 

@BobbyHcurrently using an old(er) Steyr conveted to 22. We're a special breed 22's in hft, stubborn or stupid I haven't decided yet.

Semi automatic, with paddle shift, you have to shift up and you can shift down, but it auto shifts down., braking is one pedal on right side that operates all brakes in a 20/80 split.

Ah, I’m not allowed to use right leg/foot for driving/riding 🤷🏻‍♂️

You can get a modification where you fit a hand brake like on a bike, there are quite a few who have them.

A biker for over 45 years now, I now ride a Tiger 800XRT for comfort these days.

Had GPZ900, ZX9, ZX6, Bandit 600/1200/1250, Speed Triple 1050. I passed my IAM advanced test about 10 years ago.IMG_20200322_140530.jpg.4fb8fa744072c0c5dddf4c87fec51318.jpg

I started with a Suzuki Bandit 600 before moving to a Triumph ST1050 (stonking engine). Currently I ride a KTM 1290SDGT and also have a 690 SMCR for a bit of fun. Both super torquey, amusing machines. 

I also have an ongoing project 1975 Honda CB750 which was already converted to a brat bike when I bought it... my friends said it was a silly idea and I would barely ride it, so far they are right!

My dad was, I’m not but my son and daughter are. My son bought this new a few months back. He also has an early 60’s Matchless that was quite a presentable machine when he bought it a few years ago but decided to decoke it soon after and it has remained in bits ever since. Shame really as I would prefer that but each time I mention it he says I’m free to fix. He goes quiet when I tell him I’ll do it but will want the logbook in my name afterwards😀

How confident are you that the insta360 is firmly on there?i attached the one i bought at christmas to my Spyder yesterday, only to the handlebars but i have to admit being a bit nervous about it breaking off that small thread

The bike belongs to my lad. We had a chat about the camera mount after he fitted it recently. I thought it looked a bit vulnerable but he said he had tried it shortened on the handlebars but he found it induced an airflow wobble.

I edited my original post to add a photo of my daughter’s bike but I think that was taken before she got the same or similar camera.
