Smile Another VTR freak checking in.

Previous bike (including childhood)
1970 z50, 1986 VF500, 1992 VFR, 2000 VFR, 1970 qa50, 1999 VTR, 2001 Aprilia Mille, 2001 KTM Duke 2, 2004 Ducati MTS1000, my lovely Chop, and a 1999 Triumph Speed Triple.

Right now I ride another chopper I built, a 1973 RD350 and a 1970 CT 70. In the process of getting another VTR.

I'm the Associate Editor of Iron Horse Magazine and I write about sport bikes. Bla bla. Here's my old Superhawk:

Greetings & congrats on the impending reuniting betwixt you and VTRness. Your old VTR looks very new as the headers hadn't gone off colour yet.

The pic of the ol' aircooled RD sent shivers down my spine as that was the only two-stroke I've ever owned. Handed back the non-running tatty pile the very next day for my money back - shame I never discovered the joy of powerbands.

PS The Doc Martins show your age!

PPS Do you know Ian Mutch from the UK?

I've been up all night drinking coffee. At first read I thought you said you were riding a chopper you built from a '73 RD. That would be interesting! I was slightly relieved to see your RD intact. It looks sweet. Welcome to the site.

Welcome to the site. RD is the machine. I have a blast bombing around town on mine.
