Hi all

I joined a couple of days ago. I'm probably, no, most likely the oldest member on here at 74, but I 'm currently rebuilding my 4XV7 R1 which I bought a year ago in a sad cosmetic state to replace my '98 R1 which my Daytona riding daughter has never forgiven me for selling! paranoid Was at Thruxton camping last weekend and just bought my ticket for Cadwell in a couple of week-ends time.

I'm also on the lookout for a Genesis or FZR750 before they all disappear!! eek

Neil

Well impressed Neil if you can still ride an R1!

You must have looked after your knees! smile

Welcome in....Mine's a skinny Latte, whatever that is, as I really don't want to have to get another set of leathers!

Welcome in Neil. The older the better mate. We've got a few old plodders on here, me included. Mind you I'm a spring chicken compared to you. laugh

Yes, I noticed that, as soon as I've finished my bike, a meet up at what was The Hilltop Cafe - now The Haven on the A30 or the Air Museum at Middle Wallop might be a thought.
