I'm road legal at least now  *wink2*
Supposed to be riding for three and half days this weekend to give it a suitable shakedown a circuit round the far north. Currently no air filters so will try and avoid the unsealed roads.
Still needs a bit of fettling but its got long legs.
First world problems.

Still love my beesa's though.

tough crowd. 8 beesa's in the shed and 1 non beesa and my commitment is doubted. Saw a lovely BSA 1936 B2 yesterday, sadly not for sale :(

no more photo's or comments on the non bsa then...
I've owned and ridden every sort of motorcycle that gets thrown my way and enjoy appreciate many.  I can always sell one if it doesnt make me smile anymore. Life is too short to not experiment with another bike.
I didnt know they make John Deeres' in Stevenage *dunno* I did once own an 18hp cub cadet  *shh*
Riding up in the far north over the weekend (four days on the bike), my ZB33 would have been better suited on the tight stuff.
not too many bits fell off, so really just another classic bike at the end of the day.

It's coz it's a Vincent Tim. Everyone is envious, more a swooning crowd than a tough one

There is alternatives, not all of them penned out. The classic bike article about the Vincent Amanda product launch in the US is pretty amazing tale.  (It caught fire and sank in front of the press, hardly an inspiring endorsement)

https://watercraftjournal.com/videos-is-the-vincent-amanda-water-scooter-the-first-true-pwc/

So,, I have friends with Vincents and few leave them stock but they get pretty sensitive to jokes and criticism. Touchy bunch.  So the watercraft one usually is an unwelcome comparison.

Plenty of really nice bikes though and plenty to be proud of, so dont take any grief!

I'd better start a thread on my winged wheel to balance the ledger even though its down the project priority list. Got my mag back yesterday for the 54 RR and the timing on the 2 cylinders have 0 degrees difference, so presumably a selective build from the factory!

The B2 I saw belonged to the late Paul Carr a beesa man through and through.
Now I've got this voc club run done, the next priority is to help my son paint his mini, then clear some seventies beesas from the shed. The 71 lightning is a real nice bike, but the gearboxes on the later bikes are upside down and I need space to get the road rockets sorted.
at least the series C has  the correct gearbox pattern.

Would I be ex communicated for owning this car on 2 wheels? (Early morning pic overlooking gisborne last weekend).

I certainly wouldn’t want to be considered to be shooting down another man’s ride. I can only comment – ‘not for me’. And lord knows my tastes are broad enough and probably weird enough.

In the same way, whilst I love my A10, I wouldn’t be wanting more than one of them. And yes I accept there are at least 57 different varieties.

Now the Winged Wheel I could covet.
Various, including ...
