Had to clear out my bikes for the annual porch scrub down. Thought they looked good on the lawn under a mango tree who was dropping loads of yellow leaves and some early fruit.

Went in for new tires on my Scrambler. The rear was very worn down and the front had uneven wear which caused annoying bounciness at certain speeds. Picked a set of Metzeler Tourance as they had good reviews and I got them for a good price locally.

I should be able to give them a good tryout in a few weeks, before Xmas, on a three day trip to the mountains.
The journey is the objective.

Thought I'd try re-ignite this awesome thread given the current stay at home policy with some shots of my CB750, cafe racer, shed build. This one's been happily draining my savings for the last two years. I have my 70 year Dad (retired engineer) to thank for getting the important stuff set up right. We still ride together occasionally, the memories of which, will never leave me, what a legend! We completed her last year, and was rightfully chuffed to display her at the Bike Shed 2019. If only I could take her out now, with all those empty roads! "CB750K6.5.jpg" "CB750K6.3.jpg""CB750K6.2.jpg" "CB750K6.1.jpg""CB750K6.7.jpg""CB750K6.4.jpg"

Always hankered after a sandcast............That'd be a nice "upgrade"...
