section swept Posted March 22, 2018 Report Share Posted March 22, 2018 It alway amazes me that when you see a collection of ‘superbikes’ parked up, the riders when they take their helmets off are ??? really quite old and probably drawing a pension or two. I have to include myself in the ‘quite old’ area but lucky enough to pass as younger so my other half says....bit too risky to argue! A bike dealer friend nodded in the direction of a Ducati 748 just pulling into the parking area of his dealership. Wait until he takes his helmet off my friend said. Man on Ducati stops, side stand gingerly down and he slides off bike standing all hunched the way you tend to in race leathers. This riders were yellow to match the bike (possibly even the colour of his skin). Well when he removed his helmet? I took a sharpe intake of breath?, 85 said my friend. In a minute his wife will be along to pick him up (not in the literal sense....he was standing up ok). Sure enough a little old lady arrives driving a Nissan Micra! His bike was in for service, can’t say he looked fit and healthy as he was still hunched up a bit with his leathers partly down. Riding bikes, any sort, must be good for you???? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
