Suzuki RG500

This weekend I attended the Christmas Rideout & Luncheon of the "TRINCATS" a local group of motorcyclists who all ride Bonnevilles/Thruxtons/Scramblers. Before lunch, we visited a private collection of vintage cars and motorcylces. Amongst the motorcycles there was this wonderful ex Barry Sheene RG500. Sheene has always been an idol of mine, so I was chuffed to be able to get my picture taken with this outstanding machine!

I was also able to sit on a 500cc Norton Manx (alas no test-ride available - yet!), but the photographic evidence is on a friend's camera: as soon as it is in my possession, I will post it here!
