Hello all,
I keep on trying to be a grown-up, but at 60 I'm struggling. After a lifetime of super-sports bikes (FZR1000, then an Exup, then 'blades - via plenty of other sporty stuff) I bought a Royal Enfield. I had reached the age (I thought). But then I realised that I was starting to try to ride it like a sportsbike.

So I bought a superb GSXR1000 in yellow. Then the slightly twaty matching leathers. A helmet to match, too (natch). In England they are thought of as slightly 'yobbish' bikes by some. A latter-day RD350LC. And they are - and I love it. Thanks for letting me join!
Steve

Welcome from across the pond.

There are a number of mentally stunted sexagenarians around here. Do you have any pics of your new ride?

And thanks for my new word for the day! (yobbish)

I'll try and attach a 'photo - it's a K4 so a year older than yours. I've also got a little 125cc AJS - so two ends of the spectrum, really. Ironically although this is the standard OEM colour, in the log book (I'm not sure what the North American equivalent is) it is down as 'grey'!

Very nice. There are not many yellow bikes on the road which is too bad because they are sharp looking.

The wheels set it of nice also, are they OEM color?

I don't think so - I think they were sprayed yellow - then the rims were polished back to silver. It really is in absolutely mint condition - I can't find a single mark on it. It goes like stink, too!
