Bikers in Lagos?

Any fellow Rotorheads running around Lagos on a "power bike"?
My scoot is an XR650.

How about meeting up for a cruise?

A 1957 Triton fitted with a Triumph T110 engine ina Norton Slimline Featherbed frame. Lucas competition magneto, twin leading shoe front bakes, twin 30mm amal concentrics, no electrics and a day only MOT. RH gear change, always confuses when I jump on my other steed, a BMW R1150RT. The ABS is cr*p, just had a second modulator go so have now de-ABS-ed the thing.

Update:

Still have the Triton, bit like a Westland Lynx really.....use it for one hour, fix it for four and fill it with oil. Triumph T595 for a bit of a hoot and a BMW F650GS for practicality. As an aside, I also have an Oxford Allen power scythe for cutting the brush around the estate driven by a Villiers 4-stroke engine. Not for the faint hearted!

Motorcycles

There seems to be an affinity between rotorheads and beemers. I am no exception. First bike was a 1978 Honda CB550K. Bought it for $500, rode it for two years with 0 maintenence issues, sold it for $500. Next I had a Yamaha FZ6 for a few years. Finally got the bike I REALLY wanted, BMW F800GS:

Battlestar Galactica number 3 delivered today, two years to the day and 80,070km after number 2 was first put to work, and four years since the first one. How time flies when you're having fun!

Great bike, just the bee's knees as a tourer and a sports bike
