New Here !!

Postby KettleCas » Fri Jan 26, 2018 10:22 am

Hello all :)
I'm new to the site, Nickname Cas, live in the sunny East Midlands.
At present I have 2 Kwaks, 1978 - Z1000a2 and a 1974 - Z1a.
Always loved 2 strokes, largest capacity back in the day was my RD400E, now looking to own and ride a GT750 :D
Not found anything suitable as yet but to be honest I have only been looking for a couple of weeks.
I am open to considering all options (advice welcome) :?
Looking forward to getting to know everyone and to joining in with the banter ....... :D

Welcome, Cas!
Even though you currently own only diesels :D I'm sure you'll get along with a GT triple very well.
You won't be far away from Barry / Baz who is one of the founders of this site. Worth chatting to or visiting. Nice man.
I'm way down in east Kent, but I have a selection of GTs to keep me sane!
Cheers,
Mike

Thank you all for your welcomes
Lovely bike you have there Kev :)
I would like a J or K but not firm on that ;)
I do want a bike that has the Engine and Standard Pipes sorted and then priced per the condition of the rest of the bike
Cheers :D

Welcome to the madhouse. Depends what sort of riding you want to do. 750wise the later models stop and handle better and are nice 2 up tourers but if you like something lighter and easier to get on with, don't discount a 550. They handle better and go just as well but the prices aren't as silly.
Proof that four strokes are over complicated

Well the handling is a relative thing especially if your used to modern tackle in which case they all handle crap :roll: as for being silly well mr H has got qualifications in that so he should know.
Oh yes, welcome to the asylum :lol:
