  1. Been a while since my last visit. Purchased this little beauty a few years back. Not perfect but around the roads of Mid-Wales where I live now it is just close to sublime.

  2. Hi Mark. Nice sp4alike. Are you still fabricating and building specials?
  3. Been a little slow the last few years. Taking a role as a motorsport engineering lecturer for a few years and moved house/workshop this year. Back to trackday hiring and building bikes full time now though.

  4. Weren’t you south west somewhere before? Whereabouts in mid wales? I like riding over there when the weather picks up :upyeah:
  5. Was in Wiltshire now just outside Llandrindod Wells - very central for great roads and ride outs.

    I do plan to organise a few gatherings when the improved weather arrives.

  17. I know there is an 851/888 Forum that is alive and well but anyone interested in starting an informal register of bikes on here and even possibly arranging a meet?

  18. Nice road but busy - more just as good but much quieter in the same area. I'm only a few miles from Crossgates - feel free to drop me a line and pop in next time your passing.
