    My 'other bike' is used for getting to motorbike rallies that have long dirt roads to get into them, whilst I can ride the Street Glide on a dirt road it's not easy having arthritis in my back and 2 inches of suspension travel on a rough dirt road.

    So... a DL650 WeeStrom (with skid plate, protection bars, heated grips, aftermarket screen, rear carry box and 12 volt charging point).

     My Triumph Tiger Explorer, August last year. Karen Army checkpoint into Burma, Umphang Province Thailand.

    Back in 1984 I trekked into the same area on elephant for seven days and stayed with the Karen army. There were no checkpoints and few roads. I remember crossing a river. And staying in small villages that grew opium.

     this was my first bike,it was where the importance of  understanding of how things worked & maintenance began I recon I knew every nut & bolt on that bike. I bought it running but needed clutch rebuild the previous owner was Racing it in the vintage racing class so was  not original. 2 years later this was my woks end result & kept it for another 30 odd yrs, what a beautiful thing to ride
    So sweet.....love the atmosphere of the photograph too .....sorry I’m late to the party but it must be said.

    lucky bloke,would love one of these,but out of my reach as most for sale are restored or in top original condition and the asking prices are a bit on the hot side for me.the sound of these on a 3-1 is magic.

    I used to run the R3 with three into one into two with empty ray guns,, damn loud. I have a Hurricane that i restored some years back but don't want to ride... If i scratched it i wouldn't forgive myself so i doing the R3 as a user.
    It has an 850 Route kit, big cams and other hot rod stuff, its going completely back to stock,even shouting it a new set of Amals.

    Cheers.
