Bonding with my K1

Been using the K1 quite a bit recently . and I love it. Despite its 30 years of age I find it surprisingly modern riding, comfy, good brakes, good handling with a surprising turn of speed.

I find the 16 v engine needs more revs than the old 8 valve motor to get it in the flow but once she does it's easy to find it flowing to silly speeds

Went up the Horseshoe Pass the other day and there was a guy taking pics of the bikes. Found him on Facebook and he very generously gifted me the pics he'd taken
