Hi, Dave here,
Bought the ST1300 about a year ago unfortunately due to illness and other commitments I haven't done many miles, :o I think I can say I have ridden bikes from A to Z in my nearly 60 years of riding, :roll: learning on a old 98cc Francis Barnet riding around our back garden, passed my test on a 350 AJS sand racer and been on bikes ever since, :) a spell of racing late fifties-early sixties, ( to get the speed out of the system???) :lol: stopped for about a year after an off in London where I was commuting :( , been through various jobs originaly a graphic artist in the print trade ended up doing the lot making plates running presses and cutting the paper then chucked it all in to be self employed cock maker and repairer also a gunsmith :o :o ....moved to Devon nearly 30 years ago and now retired, 8-) Have two bikes now 2003 ST 1300 and a 1952-54 Ariel 500cc special owned for 42 years...T.U.D. :ugeek:
