Josiah, don't believe a word of it. Peter just loads the front of his bike when on the centre stand to get the rear wheel clear of the ground, starts it up, puts it into top gear, and then goes off to work...... :164:

If I were to change bikes the little BMW would be on my list, I struggle now with weight of my CBF so I shall be looking at bikes under 200kg , the best I've seen so far is the CCM which weighs in at an impressive 120kg and 450cc.

Josiah ( still )  :087: ( and not riding at the moment due to health issues  :019: )
ps you ain't getting rid of me that easily either

That's lightweight.
My original XS750 weighed in at 232kg dry and my CB250 G5 weighed in at 175kg
Be interesting to hear what other members' old bikes weighed.
See who had/has the lightest.

2nd April meeting at McDs Morton Park for a ride out.
Meeting at 09:30 for 10:00 start..
All welcome 👍

Just want to confirm that you're ready for a chilly start on Sunday?

I'm hoping this will prove a good kit test for my forthcoming Scottish touring trip.
Upgrading to Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200
