Went to this pub tonight - nothing interesting in the car park but saw a z1a on the road not far from the pub!
Nice night for a run out - whatever the destination -
No traffic

Hi were you on the z1r? I was just leaving and saw one pulling away. I was on a S3a, it was very hot and not as many there due to the football.

Yes - now you mention it I did see a maroon 400 departing. - looking very clean.
If I had seen it parked I would have come over for a closer look - I jumped off a KH250 straight on to a brand new purple KH400 in 1979. The blend of power (much more than the 250) coupled with a fantastic exhaust noise is intoxicating. I would happily own one again. It did make me wonder what the 500 must be like!
The venue is pretty down to earth - and the voluptuous bar maid short changed me by £5 so I did not get off to a good start!

Owned 2 H1's Kev, and present ride is a KH400A4. 400 is a MUCH more rounded real world bike and many say it's the best riding of all the triples (I'd agree and I've had an H2 as well).
500's are quicker but not a lot happens 'till 5.5K revs then they take off like a cat with mustard on it's ballocks.

My A4 with the sound of the 70's....
