I have not felt like getting out much in the last couple of weeks but I was grateful to my old mates Thumper and Eddie who insisted I meet them up at my local bikers cafe for a traditional 'light-salad'

On a bright, spring like day the turn out of bikes was amazingly varied...

From here I will let the pics do the talking

The Fazer gets its' first outing for a while...only 23 miles but fun on a bike that is understated but hugely capable

I didn't have any with me! There were four thundercats there too.

My Thundercat is still awaiting MOT in readiness for the wee-mac

I did a Buell day at Mallory the other year and got to try the whole range out on track, I fell in love with this Lightening, not the fastest thing but the SS (short arse version) which is shorter and lower sure could nip through the bends on the track, you could catch people up through the bends and around the hairpin and then pull over to the left after the bus stop and let them all overtake you on the straight, then catch them up in the corners again halfway around the track.

Did a little write up here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] if you are interested

Great bike, pity they are american made and therefore the whole of them is made out of a softer cheese than Suzuki and Yamaha bolts and prone to un reliability and things falling off them. However, I would deffo still have one as an additional bike for scratching but wouldn't want it as a main bike and deffo not for touring

Mate's got a Buell Lightning, he took it to Assen last year and is doing so again this year, I think he's just trying to justify buying one brand new!!

Yep, that certainly is defferent for a Cat, maybe it's a work in progress?
