Honda XBR 500G

At home.

Replete with handlebar muffs, fairing,top box and panniers.On a very cold winter morning,I had to tie cardboard around the engine,to get it to warm up in less than 1 hour.One morning was so cold,even that did not work,and it stalled repeatedly.I once rode to Norwich,from London,on this bike in winter.About halfway,I had to stop and run/pace up and down a carpark for almost 15 minutes,just to get some feeling back into my toes.Then ride another 150 miles home.The weight of the panniers and frames was too much for the rear subframe,which frequently snapped.

The black and white cat, was Arthur.He lived with us for 12 and 1/2 years.Then,one day,my wife wouldn't let him into our bedroom.So,he went away, and lived the rest of his 15 years with an old lady,across the street.
