It's no good, I have to confess to liking small bikes. The simple Suzuki VanVan, Yamaha TW125/200, Suzuki TU250, Honda FTR250 and Yamaha SRV250 all have a special place in my heart. Sadly they don't come up very often, or if they do, I'm skint and can't afford them. I also have way too many projects.
Anyway, here are some delicious small bikes.

We forget how many little bikes we don't get over here.

Still need top coat. Prefer it to the brown.

My email buddy out in Aus, Stew, sent me some pics of the Salt Racer SR500 he's been working on. Lovely lines, and I dig that cheeky Megga peeking out from the belly pan.

My order from OJZ Engineering turned up today, and as always the Ténéré got loaded up and hauled things home. Can't wait to start making the system for the DR.

Not all panels are cut and buffed, but I wanted to get an idea of how it sat together. Pretty sure I'll repaint the brown sections once the bike is run in, I'm just not happy with the candy. Anyway, it was good to get a feel for it.

Happy as a...

He is curious and wants something...

Ah yes, that's the spot. Now his piggy buddy wants some too...

Dunno who was happier. I love pigs, they're brilliant.

Red Marley Hillclimb

Today, I thrashed 60miles through some cracking roads to get to the Red Marley hillclimb. Was well worth it. Here's just some of the many pics I took.

Planned on going back to Pendine this weekend, but other things have come up. Few postcards from last time.


A night in the shed of dreams with a beer or two and some 2000grit.
