Greetings,
Totally enjoying my Canadian St1100, though the season is wrapping up in this part of the world.
Looking forward to reading the wealth of information that has been accumulated on this board.
Cheers
Robert

Welcome aboard Robert. Is there some Scottish heritage in there with the kilt reference?

My tux wore out a friend of my wife suggested a kilt ensemble. I stage manage opera, and wore the kilt to work. I had to cue the ladies chorus on stage, and as each one walked by they swiped my butt. The kilt is a chick magnet!
Kilts can be expensive, so I thought about making my own. After some research I learned how to make them. I also wanted to wear a work kilt backstage. Utilikilts had just come out but didn't like their design. I designed one for my needs and soon I had guys wanting me to make them. It turned into a business. www.rkilts.com
I ship them world wide....this is a short version of the long story

Welcome from a west coast Canuck, Robert. When I lived in London, over 30 years ago, I used to ride up to Stratford for a loop around the park on my CB750. Spent some evenings in a very smoky club called The Black Swan too.

Do you wear a kilt when riding your ST? ;)

For the most part no I don't wear a kilt whilst riding unless under controlled situations.
The black swan is celebrated every year around labour day weekend, Cedric Smith still comes by to perform.
