Geezlike Watty - you are playing with fire here - some of the okes will be dying of disappointment...  :lol:

HEY! What's wrong with a BP push-bike?  I grew up on one of those puppies... And that's where my supreme sense of balance had its origins  :D

I know that bike, reminds me to post a good cross post from UKGSer:

3 generations of GSers

"Finally got the old man (Micky) to come down the quarry and join me, my lad and my brother.
Eldest one there is nearly 60 and the youngest 2 years old"



1st thing my brother did was get some big air, and rip the sump guard off on landing  :eek:  :D



My lad loved it down there  :)



Especially playing in the mud :D



Did a few hills.



Much easier now I've fitted TKC's :D



Micky had a good play :)



The TKC's definately make a difference



But my brother Still got up on Tourances, just had to carry more speed



Which meant he got higher  :confused:

Note sump guard strapped to the rack :yelrotflm



1st attempt and made it



2nd attempt...



And I cocked it up......no option but to turn it round :o



If I get enough speed I can make it up the hill :D



Took a trip through the woods.....



Where my Dad got smacked in the eye by a branch  :eek:



Didn't stop him enjoying himself though  :clap



Shall I or shant I??? :eek



Here goes...



Note back wheel completely off the ground  :clap



Another hill



Decided to play in some water



BAD idea  :D



it took some getting out :o

 


After playing down the quarry we took a trip to Crookford ford



Where Aaron showed us all how to do it   :D



Can't wait till the next time :clap

I've got one of those and I didn't even know it could do all that !
02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

That's a fantastic post by "Laughing Gas" from UKGSer forum. From his username you can see a Nitrous bottle attached in the back of his GS - he scares off sportsbikes at 240kph+ on tar too with his shaft driven lardy boxer R1100GS (imagine the reactions from sportbike riders :shock:  :D  )
