Got home late last night...garage lights clicked on..then clicked off (must lengthen that delay) leaving me in the dark trying to find the kick stand! Took me ages!:rolleyes:

This was taken with my phone, BUT i quite like the look, so I think I'll experiment with some night time photography and some remote flash units and get creative!

’Moody’ is good. We like ‘moody’

Ride out with the boys today , stopped in Sandwich Kent to take in the views from the church tower, checkout my front mudguard extender, it’s for the triumph 675( as we all know now that’s where the carbon fibre guard comes from ) hopefully this will help in not chucking so much crud & water up in bad weather & prevent the bike becoming the “ Norton 480” in torrential rain ( one cylinder conks out )

Hello. This is my 961. Had it a few years now but it's been broken of late. Hoping to get it fixed (gearbox) soon.

Some of you eagle eyed gardeners may have spotted my new made in germany stihl hedge croppers hanging up in the background

Canberra still in lockdown but were allowed a 2 hour "recreation" time, blast out to Cotter Dam and back, long winding roads that you can sit at 110+kph (4k revs so shes sounding sweet)

Most of the early days 961 issue's seems to have gone away now shes fully run in, sings along above 3K revs and seems sweet at 4k coming on the power.

Quite jelly of those boots @Welshrugby the Dunlops are original 2015 and the rear has squared off no matter how often I throw her into the twisties.

They have probably been commented on previously, but nice mirrors.

Sweet looking ride WR, but some bastard has chopped the ends off your longs! You’v only got half of an exhaust can there - bit careless if you ask me! Like the look of the tyres, would like to know how they are grip wise for spirited riding. Please let us know when you’ve had a chance to give it some beans. I’d like to put some British shoes on myself. Thanks. Steve

Lockdown must suck Bluey, we are having a pretty free ride of it up on the Sunny Coast thankfully! I’m liking the engine guard you have front mounted there. Aftermarket, or did you fab’ it yourself?

haha, I agree, from that angle they look very short and stubby but same as bluey's. The sound though is operatic

Yeah, theres a post way back whwn I added it originally, fabbed out of 2.5mm 3k twill sheet carbon, It wasnt long after i did the sensor replacements and noticed the cam sensor sat there directly in the path of any shit flying off the road, I coul dhave made it half that height to clear the sensor but got carried away :D
