And they're both wrong of course... You need an Egli chassis...!

And another thing (in defence of Ash)...

In this sterile modern world of uber political correctness, let's NOT lose the joy of banter and good old fashioned piss taking in the motorbike world.

Taking the piss out of others is half the fun.

Why d'ya think I call my Commando "Trident Hunter"...?

Just wait for Sam's response and you'll see...

Ashley, Pretty sure we're on the same page for the most part. As far as group rides: too fast, too slow, not enough stops, too many stops, twisty roads, straight roads, whine whine whine... My favorite sized group is ONE. I never complain about me.
Eddie, If you've got an Egli frame sitting around collecting dust I'll get it out of your way.

Charlie its all in good fun, my Sunday rides with my mates that I have been riding with over 40 years don't happen every Sunday usually once a month or every 3 weeks, most of the time I get out on my own or another good friend on his big bore Harley, I also do a lot of traveling on my Thruxton as I am now retired, I don't mind my own company, I stop when I want to or go as long as I can if its a very long trip, my Norton was a everyday ride for over 37 years and now its semi retired just like me and the Thruxton is now my everyday rider, but I still like taking the Norton out as much as I can, its a fun bike to ride very light and very fast it handles better than the Thruxton and a bit quicker but I like both bikes and I did own a Harley once but it just didn't suite me, I like going around corners fast and being on a lighter bike, British bikes are in my blood and I can't change that, but a lot of my Harley mates just don't like to go far on their rides, get up to late get home to early and most of the time they only use a 1/2 a tank of fuel, to me thats not a ride but a short trip to the shops and where all the same age of 58 years old.
But hey if thats all they want to do on their big hogs then all fine by me but I will stir them up about it, I can't help myself its the Aussie way, shit stirring, putting shit on each other, joking around and having the best fun we can, life is to short not to have some fun without being too serouse in what we do.
