Photographs and memories

Post by Jules Pearce on Fri Jul 07, 2017 6:09 pm

I was looking through some motorcycling photographs recently, so I thought that I'd share some (and get a handle on posting pictures from an external source). You may get a laugh out of some of the older shots!


Jules without a road bike! Had a Yamaha 175 trail bike.


GT550 Suzuki around 1973 / 74


Honda CB750 K2 around 1975


Kawasaki 1000, Z1R around 1980



Lavers Hill: XS650 Yamaha, CB750 K4 Honda, RD350 Yamaha



CBR600F Honda around 2000


Just ridden 985 kms in a day


VFR800 Honda




VFR800 at Mt Panorama


Kawasaki ZX14. 2010 model bought new in 2011


Zx14R SE bought 2013



Most of the road bikes I've owned, but none of the dirt bikes included.

Those of you that can remember the 1970's - a mystery has been solved!   

Marc Bolan (Lead Singer of the band, T. Rex) was thought to have died in a car crash in 1977. This is not so, he is alive and well, living in Tourqay!

Have a look at the photo's Jules (but is it really?) has posted, in particular the B&W (3rd from the top) - that's Marc, albeit without a top hat!   He has certainly aged well, as the later photographs show!

Ha Ha! And hasn't riding gear come a long way. I don't think I rode in that sheepskin jacket very often, however, the denim jacket over a T-shirt and desert boots were standard summer apparel. I don't think that kevlar jeans were invented and I only knew one fella who owned leather pants. I don't have a pic with the Belstaff jacket which was used for wet weather.

Here's one of Dorothy with my TS400 - she loved riding that 'big bike' and her GT250 Suzuki.
