Default In a moment of madness

I bought myself another motorbike
I got rid of the last one as i was riding it to fast
for kiwi roads.
I've been at a loose end since it went so when i spotted
this fixer upper on trade me i went to have a look.
It will cruise very easilly within the legal limit (that'll be a 1st for me )
so the plan is to ride it as it is during the summer
then start on a strip and rebuild in the winter.
Its not the usual sports bike style that i go for but
what the heck!! two wheels is two wheels and i'm
back on the road again
I've just got to get a beard, a tassley jacket and a patch
to complete the look

Its a Suzuki VS700 Intruder.
I've never had a cruiser before and the feet forward position
takes a bit of getting used to after 30 years of sports bikes
but i kinda like it.

Nothing wrong with a comfortable ride- at least on a cruiser you don't have to dress up in tight fitting garish green leathers!


Iv got one of her smaller sisters parked in the garage and she brings a grin to my chin!

cool you've got 15 foot wide B king
shame they left the supercharger off that was on the prototype.
does the tank need to be that fat? is there anything underneath it
or is it just styling?
