I took the Springfield in for a service and a couple of recalls to be done. They want it for two days so I came home on this loaner. It's a Triumph Street Triple 675 and is a little screamer.

When I came to Newcastle in 2008 I considered buying one. I'd sold my Suzuki GS1000 when I left Bathurst and needed another bike. I got on one of these and realised I'd lose my license if I bought one, so I went for the newly released 650 Versys instead.

Riding this one today showed me I was right about losing my license. It feels like riding a swarm of hornets and definitely does not want to obey the speed limit. I take it back on Thursday arvo and I intend to have my license in one piece.

And this one belongs to a friend who's health has gone and has to sell it. I took it in for a rego check. It's an MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR. It doesn't take long to see why they called it the Brutale. It's a total beast of a bike and at any moment it felt like it wanted to throw me off. I think it's going for about $10,000 if anyone is interested.

I can identify with that. It's one reason why i drive an old landcruiser, to keep the speed down. I worry a bit with the Bobber, giving it a blatt will send you over the speed limit too easily!

I rode the little green screamer into town to pick up the Springfield. I've never gone so quick through the 4pm traffic. That bike is a total hooligan - and apparently I'm still a teenager somewhere inside. 🙂

Hmm, so Doc, there I was thinking that you had (or did have) a Scout (or version thereof).
My Scout is the closest thing I have owned in awhile to me losing my license (or whatever) in ages!
Other bikes go as quick, but not as agile & versatile.  I've ridden Dukes & other really quick street bikes, but the Scout handles like a pushbike with the speed & go that will beat a Harley street rod.  I love it, but always conscious of what the heck I'm doing (or so I think!).  If not, Mr Plod will have a say in it...
Or my Missus, haven't made the new will out yet!  ðŸ˜‹

OK, Kriss,
you've got me on that bike. It looks like an early Goldwing boxer motor in a GS front end and Honda badging.

All the Honda dual sport bikes I've seen, early Dakar models and Africa Twins, are vertical twins. Your bike is intriguiging.
Cheers, Kim.

It’s a 1976 GL1000 with a modified frame and modified GS tank and front beak, the rear panels are of a Aprilar  Every thing else is wing.

That's a weird combination and I imagine it gets a bit of attention when people try to piece it all together. And now I take a wider look at the pic, that bloke on the right seems to asking the common question, 'What the f** is that?' 🙂

Seems my guess was close, missed the Aprilia.
Cheers, Kim.

I love riding this bike every now and then because it is adrenalin and unfortunately if you hit wildlife it is all over. There are a lot of buffalo and pigs on the road this time of year. The RM sits nicely on 140km but this V rod loves 180km and it does feel like it ( not sure top speed I backed off at 230km)
Like Shifty commented on the Green Kermit the frog it is a licence killer and we forget our age. " We dont grow up just older"
