When I first saw this I thought what on earth is she doing on my bike but then on closer inspection I realised it is not my bike as mine does not have that transfer on the oil tank. Got to be careful because she that must be obeyed keeps a close eye on what I do with my bikes.

BSA motorcycle, girl in leather. What's not to like?

Nah - she looks like she could actually ride the thing. Dangerous type.

Mmmm...is it a trick question?  Did I get the answer correct in that the lower front stay/prop should not be chromed?

The metallic construction in the background looks very, very interesting, but it's all blurred due to the very bad photo quality, and if that was not bad enough, there are some things in the foreground partially obstructing it !

Shame on you GB. Letting your granddaughter ride without gloves and helmet!
Cheers

Mmm... I can't help wondering about that seat for some reason... Is that the right seat?

That's a very important question. Sadly, difficult to evaluate as the view is partly obstructed by an alien element. Very badly planned photo session.

Also, are the fuel taps the correct type for that year of production?

:O)

I've been studying that area quite a lot and I'm still not sure. The investigation continues...

A hump is definitely needed (on the seat)
Title: Re: Just to cheer us up
Post by: Joolstacho on 01.02. 2019 23:44
Yes, a hump would be good, but it's not only the shape... the covering makes a big difference.
I really DO like leather on a seat, but don't underestimate vinyl covering, -its performance in the wet is quite superior.

If needed I can both supply and apply some leather polish....

I note that no-one has actually got as far as reading the writing on the bottom. No not that bottom. It says My funny Bonnie. Is that her name or is it indeed a most odd Bonnie. In fairness, it was my cynical son who pointed this out. I'm sure I would have got to the writing eventually.

I went in search of 'My Funny Bonnie' and came, (almost literally) across this one

^^^ oh, that's a lake in Italy. Very nice. But again, there are these annoying things in the middle of the photo, completely spoils the view  *sad2* What's wrong with these photographers ?? lol

I see what your getting at a10gf being an amatuer phographer myself there are 2 ways to improve that shot you could take 2 or3 steps to the right then recompose the shot but then the fence would maybe spoil the shot so I would suggest standing in front of the obstruction next to the fence then you could take what looks like very good landscape shot.

Yes, it can be Lace Iseo, I gues it was the same view I had a look over the phantastic landscape. But there was no nice butted chick  *roll*

This is more for running the phantasie, but in 1937 the top of BSAs advertisements.


Watch out for details *eek*

During this bout of cold weather don't be tempted to use a Marks and Spencer store discount card to scrape the ice off your windscreen as you'll only get ten per cent off.  .............Sorry!
