new around here, big Z fan I guess I must be

#1 PostAuthor: hartyb » Mon Nov 13, 2017 3:49 pm

Good afternoon one and all

been reading this site for some time now and love the Project section

So a little about me, Been a Z owner for 32 years with my first one a 79 z1000st, the second one arrived in 1991 a Mk2 and then the one i always wanted in 2015 a Z1000A1 and two more odd balls arrived this year a Z900 a4 and a Z1r in the wrong clothes (z1000 tank, tail, seat and side pannels) luckly I had a few bits but still need a few more

these 5 go with the others bikes in the shed Z1300 and a few gpz's still looking for a 900r

will post a few pic's when I work out how

Best regards Harty

Crikey, that's quite a collection!

There are quite a few members close-by to you, including me... it would be good to see you at one of our gatherings.

that sounds like a good plan, will you be on the Reading/toy run on the 10th December, I guess not on a Z though i will be on something and if dry and no salt one of the classics done about 28 odd out of the 32 years

I was out on the Z900 today, the only garage Queens I have are the ones that need work on them or waiting MOT's
roll on the new system for mot's in May next year as that will be save a a few quid on bikes that don't do many miles '

Yes we will be doing the Reading Toyrun and possibly the Windsor one on 26th Nov.....and yes I normally use my Blackbird but Chris likes to use his Z1B.

Maybe see you there amongst the other 2000+ bikes !!

Welcome from me too, my Z900 is having its tank, side panels and rear unit painted so I'm off the road until Jan/Feb - the FireBlade is SORN'd too.

Maybe see you at Pinewood or one of our local Z1 OC group rideouts next year.

I saw the Pinewood meets this year but did not manage to get a long, will make the effort next year and will be out on some Z1 OC days for sure, I am very keen to try a track day for Z's as well, when I was a lad we all used to ride like our hair was on fire on our Z's but today the roads are so bad its not possible so a nice track could be fun on a z :D
