    Well, looks like quite a day - glad everyone had a good time. Seven Kats together - I've never even seen another one on the road at the same time as me - let alone ride together!

    You know, I just love that black and red ES paint scheme - we never had a choice here stateside. Looks like 82 star wheels, very trick with the red highlights. And the custom Kat, well, that sure looks like fun!

    Hi Scott, yeah it was perfect day and great to have some Kats out even though two others couldn't make it on the day. So did the States only have the ES in the white and blue scheme?

    The custom Kat is not only pure Kat Porn visually, it performs even better than it looks. I have posted some other detailed pics in "7 Katanas - What". Have a look I think you'll like what you see, I still have a .......... never mind. Cheers mate.

    Took a little drive down to Texas this weekend, and met up with Chuck. Couldn't waste a visit without breaking out a couple of his beautiful GS's...

    Here they are, after a beautiful ride from Temple to Killeen Power Sports.






    On the way back, took a little detour and stopped at Lake Belton...

    Could have left the one of our fat azzes out Matt...LOL. The pics turned out great. I like that turnout area. The lake is beautiful. The view looking west from the center of the dam is even better than from the end where we were at.

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    Took the 400 out for a run to mum and dads today. On the way I stopped in the old warehouse district here in Port Adelaide for a couple of photos, enjoy-

    That is a very very very, did I say very, very nice looking twin! I'm not usually big on cafes, but this one is clean and nicely done, I could see owning one like this, maybe a larger cc version as I way more than a buck 20 soaking wet which you'd have to be to ride one of these, this one would get a vote from me if ever there was a category for BOTM, hmmm, maybe we should have several categories for BOTM, so all would feel a bit more included. Did I just make friends or enemies with that last statement?!

    Hi Veg, that is a very classy looking cafe, well done. The work you have put into the whole bike is a marvel but the wheels and rear sprocket are just stunning. Thanks for the photos and the location shots suits the cafe just right, cheers.
