Manx Norton on full chat at Mallory, sounded glorious and he wasn't hanging around either.

Lovely shot, you really captured the speed.

I have not ridden a bike since I was in my 20's, I am tempted to get one next summer.

Like the 'out-side' fork springs, and lack of knee-pads ?

Looks a bit like my old favourite, Phil Read

Had one of his replica helmets when I had a RD350 - many moons ago

( the RD350 could 'wheelie' in the first 4 gears if you were 'mental' )

Great shot of a great machine. You can almost smell the Castrol R.

I do find the grass colour a little distracting though.

Agree with Tim - I rode through 14 winters before my employer blackmailed me into doing a car test.

I ride a bike for work, you get bored after the first year or two, still...

Nice shot, classic bike, classic pose, what more could you say.

As for the RD350, I've a dismantled RD400, that could wheelie in all 6 gears..

..fearsome..

but bloody good fun passing Capris...

Hi Tim

I used my previous Tamron 70-300mm Di LD at 105mm, which I've just sold as I never really got on with it, nothing wrong, a fine lens but I prefer manual primes.
