    Just a few pics of the Daily Rider whilst the other Trophy undergoes a rebuild, had the wheels powder coated as they were getting a little scabby makes a bit of a difference from the factory black.

    It looks fantastic Oldyam! :grinning:

    The gold wheels really suit the bike.

    Thanks @DD

    Thought you might like that, just need to sort the pair for the BRG beast in Subaru Gold now as I think that needs a bit of a lift too.

    Thanks for the kind words, its a work in progress, trying to keep it clean this end of the year is a constant battle as I'm sure you all know.

    Thanks Joe

    I love it over here, won't ever be moving back for anything especially as I'm in the most scenic part of the country, Co. Donegal

    Regards

    Nigel

    Can't seem to post these in the Gallery, but, a few pics of the Mk 1 & Mk 2 Trophys together before the Mk 2 comes in for a service including finishing off the valve clearances I started in March. Then the Mk 1 becomes the daily rider for a while.

    Which do you prefer Oldyam?

    The MK2 gets my vote but only based on its looks.

    That would be a difficult choice, the Mk 2 is more practical at present with the luggage and more upright seating position, but, the Mk 1 has a character all of its own with the different riding position, unfortunately its not rideable for long distances at my age in my condition.

    The Mk 1 is an enjoyable ride though for the length of time I can manage it, arthritis & sciatica are a bitch.

    Both lovely bikes and a credit to you. But I'd take the Mark One, I reckon! :D
