    No, I had to get the pic of the Blade from the cloud as I didn't have it on my phone. Gawd knows how the 14th tee got in on the act :joy:

    Wish I still had the Blade, it'd be worth a bit now:weary_face:

    Yup that's the latest ditch pump:heart_eyes:

    When I take a nice shot of a fairway or green it is usually followed by a poor shot.

    Only one? :joy:

    The photo itself was one I took after some moron visitor in a buggy drove up a steep bank in front of the 14th tee, then straight across it towards where I took the photo from on his way back to the 17th hole behind where I was stood - you can just see the tyre track on a direct line towards the gorse bush and thevwhite tees on the right. At the time buggies were restricted to the paths which made it even worse. Nothing was done by the senior management team (who I call Laurel and Hardey) as a result. The members have give up approaching visitors who are damaging the course etc as there have been instances where the members concerned have then been verbally abused or threatened so we just phone the proshop now and let them deal with it. :mad:

    Starting in 1971,
    BSA C15
    Yamaha DT175
    Yamaha RD125
    Suzuki 250
    Yamaha XT500
    Kawasaki Zephyr 550
    Triumph Trident 900
    Triumph Bonneville 790
    Triumph Adventurer 900
    Triumph Bonneville T100
    BSA C15
    Royal Enfield Classic 500
    Triumph Street Twin 900
    Yamaha Tracer 700
    Royal Enfield Himalayan
    Royal Enfield Interceptor
    Kawasaki ER-5 500
    Royal Enfield Classic 350
    Triumph Bonneville 790 (current)
    Royal Enfield Bullet 500 (current)

    First 20 or so years small cheap and cheerful low cost commuter bikes to get to work, recent years for pleasure. At one time or another they were all my favourite bikes, I had the DT175 when stationed in Cyprus for a couple of years, great for off roading, currently I am doing around 6,000 miles a year, sold the Himalayan as I found it rather heavy and I stopped off roading, didn't like the Interceptor, now have the perfect two bikes (for the moment).

    Actually I was not completely correct when typing my bike history as I thought only proper motorcycles would be of interest.
    So, my update:
    Aprilia SR 50R from about 2006 to today (has about 18000km on it)
    Vespa Primavera 125 Pic Nic from 08/2023
    And hopefully Triumph Bonneville T120 from mid April 2024 on

    Edit: typo
