During the summer, the sportbike community attends Bike Night BBQs, and a week ago this was hosted by EMS: Essential Motorcycle Services, where TED the owner is the one who services my V-strom. What better way to spend a warm Wednesday summer evening having a hamburger or hot dog and chatting with other bikers
No, that is not my V-strom but there were a few other Stromtroopers there. This was early in the evening but soon after the lot was jammed with live DJ music permeating through the air.
The BBQ was put into action and soon I was munching on my hamburger and enjoying a soda. There were bikes of every description and most makes were represented. As I was walking about rubbing elbows with other familiar faces the star of the show arrived. I knew from the chitter chatter on the local bcsportbikes.com forum that this beautiful bike would be there, and right on queue it arrived right before my eyes .
I stared at it from all angles wondering whether this was a restoration, but others were speaking of it as being brand new and not ridden, until now. If you ask me it is better than new. I often take more photos than I can ever post and RichardM recently posted a request to see more photos of this bike. I mean, how would he know that I would have more to show ?
As I don't know much about these bikes, I'm letting the photos speak for themselves
There you have it, The Vincent HRD . . .
