I think i have reached my mid life crisis. After turning my woodworking hobby into a business I was in need of a new hobby. Having two good friends who are bikers i have decided to join them and have just given myself an early Christmas gift.....and here she is:


Beautiful isn't she? 1992 750 Virago with only 16000 on the clock. Very well maintained. I am now looking forward to the summer...if we get one. dont know

Well done Mailee, get your self over here for the Isle of Man TT and give your new toy a blast around the coarse.

Lovely, but you can't fit much timber in those saddle-bags.

But I have forgotten how to get photos direct onto posting replies ...i can get them into my album

Thanks guys. I am looking forward to the summer if we get one to get out on the open road with her. I will still be spending a lot of time in the shop though. (Got to pay for her) David I only upload my photos to my gallery and then post them from there. Just upload your photos and then click on the camera icon to add them to the post. HTH.

Beautiful, I had a similar style Kawasaki.

First passed my bike test in '67, got back into riding in '88, got on a Kawasaki KH100 did a wheely not realising how much power there was compared to my old Triumphs, messed my pants.

Then registered for the CBT and took the new test, felt a lot safer, built up from 125cc to 750, then got taken out by a drunk driver 200yds from home.

Kept my BSA Bantam for a while the quietly retired, sold the bantam for more than I paid for it.

Good safe riding.
