Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

A flash drive :escape: The Kawasaki sounds like a lot of fun, would you use it in the wet or is the BMW a safer option? Ignoring the joke... :D There's far too many shiny bits on the Kawasaki to use it in bad weather, and zero weather protection for the rider - so it will be a summer bike, I reckon...

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

Superb looking bike Richard. How does it compare against the BMW, for this kind of ride? Chalk and cheese, Steve. The BMW is sensible, with a commanding seating position, it feels safer and encourages a grown-up riding style. Having said that, it shifts nicely and hustles around corners in a precis...

PS: you are supposed to be selling, not look at new stuff! :)
I know. :D

I have been avoiding all the usual Basel hype etc because I genuinely want to downsize. However, (as you know) it's not easy.

Re: New Omega releases, inc SS 50th anniversary Speedmaster

Hmm. Can't get excited about the Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th. However, a bit further down the page, this one caught my eye:

Re: Outgoing Rolex GMT master 2, but what to replace it with?

The geophysic is really very nice and I thought one of your favourites. Same could be said about your explorer ii so why not just sell the gmt master for really good money and keep the other two. I personally wouldn’t lose the exp ii and take in the seiko. ( but what do I know :lol: ) Not to derail...

Re: Outgoing Rolex GMT master 2, but what to replace it with?

Are you buying a 3rd motorbike already? :shock: That aside I was rather tempted by that GS GMT when one was listed on TZ-UK recently. Neil :lol: There will be no third motorbike.
