Cairngorm mountain Ski report Nov 2016 on Viagra!

Hi all, well I decided it was time for old Viagra to show its worth today, so used it to do the ski report for this weekend! WTF is old Viagra? Well, it's a 1981 Yamaha XV920 Virago that I restored over the last couple of yrs in my spare time! I decided to use it as a winter hack for this year, save...

Re: Lecht Ski report Nov 2016

Hi Bob, it's a marmot! I was given it at a stop on top of the Col d'Iseran many years ago! Been on all my bikes since! Long story, but I was approached by a marmot on the Stelvio pass, it stood up on its back legs and bared it's teeth at me! Been terrified of them ever since! Lol!

Re: Lecht Ski report Nov 2016

I've skied Cairngorm and the Lecht many years ago, but this yr I'm going to give snowboarding a bash! It was great to get out on the Africa twin, I'm not running my MT09 over the winter as it's simply not made for that! I do have old Viagra on the road now, supposed to be my winter hack but at 35yrs...

Lecht Ski report Nov 2016

Hi folks, I've not posted up here for a while, thought I'd share a November ride out on the CRF1000L Africa twin with you all! I woke this morning to a white frost and a shower of sleety snow, didn't think it would clear up to get the bike out but boy was I wrong! By lunchtime it was blue skies here...

Re: Picked up my new bike today..

Saw one at the local dealers last weekend, stunning looking bike, I've not tried the 700 but the 900 triple is like shit off a hot shovel! I love the retro look of it, Yamaha told me there are wire wheels available for it too. Love the Kenny Roberts colours, there was an MT09 at the bike show in Ken...
