That is one of the best engines the Japanese ever made (my opinion  ;D of course!). I had a  1981 TR1 - the road bike version.



It was a superb bike, masses of stomp from almost no revs - overtaking was a doddle on this machine. It handled competently and predictably and was comfortable for a 500 mile stint.  I loved it, had it for years. In the end, it gave its all on the autobahn, 300 miles at 100mph ... it limped back the UK and that was the last time it moved. I'd have another anyday. Beats the hell out of the Suzuki VX800 I've got - which is spectacularly horrible, the worst bike I've ever owned and that list includes a a Jawa 350!!!

My new toy which I love to bits.
I will try not to fall off this one as it's a lot heavier.
Roll on the sunshine!!

Judging by the rear of the first car lifting with the waves, their main problem was buoyancy lifting rear wheels! A write off presumably ref electrics etc, and insurance company would just laugh! Ive been told flooded cars will never be correct again. THEN,,Add in salt,,,,,,,,,,, :-[

The Americans are also seeing the light when it comes to beer - they have a thriving micro-brewery industry now, and good interesting beers can usually be had has these days ... which is at least slight compensation for hours sat in an aeroplane
