Summer of 2023 :)

Wow, can't believe it, 44 years of riding under my belt this year, all of which (including the rain soaked holidays) was worth it. And one of the most reliable bikes I've had the pleasure of owning is definately the GPZ500. Reliable, dependable and enjoyable - all the things a woman should be - in a small package :)

Anyway, here's mine, freshly serviced, oil, filter, plugs checked, timing chain adjusted, new exhaust wrap applied, cleaned ad polished up ready for some serious Highland Touring! Total costs of al that - £30. The seat cushion "thingy" is a recent addition owing to my dodgy prostate, I'll let you know how comfortable it is after a months use.

Enjoy the Summer of 2023 everyone :)

this old photo marked 1962, making me 11 or 12 yo. Shortly after, i bought a Suzuki 125 twin (?) 2 stroke streetbike for $30 bucks, obviously riding illegally, no plates,. no license. Many bikes between then and now totally forgotten. So how many years do I have in total? 61?
