Pointing the way home
Hi Jack, when i see the picture i wish you that it is a long way home and enjoy. By the way what kind of bags do you use on your bike? Could you take a picture and post it? Viele Grüße Dirk
Hi Dirk... Thanks for your message ;) ... Indeed it often takes 45 kms to cover the10 km distance to the next village... :v The bags are British Army, brand new, sold by Silvermans. They are just awesome with lots of straps and pockets.
Hi Jack. Thx a lot! I'll try to get them here in Germany. And this tiny good looking mirror, how is the view back?
Better than any TV-screen like mirror atop the handlebar ! Convex mirror, so wide rear view. Doesn't vibrate. Perfect. I doubt you will find the panniers anywhere else than at Silvermans. But you can order online, they got very good service too.
Hi Jack! Great landscape you're riding in, is this by any chance your mirror http://www.wats-motor.com/product_info.php/cPath/3 3_45_156/products_id/1545?
Hi Dimitris... No this isn't. I found mine in an "all for one pound" bin at the Maidstone old Gericke store 3 years ago... ;)
That's a great image, Jack. Worthy of being the header for our W650 FB home page.
I lost hope though... :v
Have you been featured in any more moto mag articles that you haven't told us about? Centerfolds?
Ah ah !! Indeed there has been a picture in Classic Motorcycle Mechanics, to illustrate a technical question... :)
I was an avid reader of Motorcycle Sport, for years. The one with the red cover with a black and white photo. I loved that mag because it seemed directed at the true motorcycle owner/enthusiast. The reviews would get into real-world stuff, like what it was like to change a bike's wheels. It was more content than style - the photos were, more often than not, crappy black and white snaps (no high-gloss spreads of flashy photos of drive-bys by California dudes doing wheelies). It was a rare magazine, in Montréal during the '70s and early '80s, so I had it reserved for me at a local mags and fags shop. Made me want to live in England, where all the coolest bikes were - Tritons, Dresdas, Laverdas, and the odd DiFazio, or wierd stuff like those early attempts at FF bikes. Miss that rag!
Funny you should mention that today... Look what I just got :v Close enough eh?
Bman Juang, do us a favour and make him happy again so we don't have to hear him whining anymore :-)
Centerfold? Is Jack going to do a "Burt Reynolds" on us?
NAH... we just have to wait the time of the month to pass
By then there'll hopefully be a better pic :-D
You guys are just jealous... :v
Bribes don't work, praise doesn't, and neither do threats... Bman won't bulge, he's his own man. So I'm thinking of creating my own FB group... "W650s with Black Rims". :v
True. Guilty as charged!
Better call it "W's and PlastiDip" :-P
