XS650: School Time   Leave a comment

Our boy turned 9 the other day – how time flies!!!

He loves riding. Sidecar or as solo pillion – no problem – gotta have wind in face.

Looking for a birthday gift – Lego is always a winner. Stumbled across a bit of XS memorabilia that guaranteed not many have.

We have summer school break at the moment. 6 weeks of it. He had a week of football camp with Real Madrid and another week with his rugby club. The rest I have him on my construction site.

Anyway, to cut a short story long, I was looking for birthday stuff – school in mind – just the stuff kids hate. And found this …

Sure it’s used. Has a name inside with a post code that doesn’t exist anymore. But, hey, for a kid that goes to school in a sidecar it’s kinda fitting.

XS650: Dreaming   Leave a comment

These bikes are becoming popular. With good reason. There are downsides however. Availability of quality parts. Pricing.

Some people are simply dreamers. Found this on US ebay. $249.99. A bargain. If you’re looking for chicken lip socks.

dreaming

I bought 2 of these in January. £20 for both. Acceptable.

Yes people. You’ve just been …

A cool Japanese version. I want (to see them live.)

But. Hey. While we’re all being screwed – Why not have a party?
