Very nice bikes! That suzuki is lovely, and I don't normaly go for plastic clad bikes! I always get a bit jealous when I see garages that size. One day... :crybaby: :mrgreen:
Hi Arwen
Thanks again. I managed to upload some more photos in Readers Rides if you are interested. Yes it's good having a double garage, but the bit where the bikes were lounging in, is normally occupied by wifes motor. Temporarily loaned while I was tooling around with them. This is my dilemma though, now kids have finally left nest, we are looking to downsize, so might have to cull the fleet.
Cheers D.D

Absolutely! And we have more in common! Because it appears that you're a Kiwi and I'm Welsh......so we're both sheepshaggers apparently! :lol:

Ha Ha Ha nice one. Have you boyo's tried dropping their back legs into your gumboots so they can't get away !
We have actually progressed onto Lamas, because with their long necks you can bend their heads around and give them a kiss at the same time ha ha ha

P.S How the F..K did I end up down this Rabbit hole !!!!
