Cool birthday gift from my kids
« on: August 19, 2018, 07:14:30 pm »
For my upcoming birthday my kids snuck the Bandit frame I bought from Dale on this forum out of my garage and had it powder coated. This is very cool as I can now reassemble my old bike from Japan and Europe. I've also included photos of the bike in Japan, France, Italy, Britain and the Isle of Man. I'm pretty excited to get her back on the road and exploring her third continent. Thanks to all for coming up with such a great surprise!

The new frame to assemble the Bandit on!

In front of our house in Mabori Kaigan near Yokosuka in Japan.

Riding in Chiba prefecture across Tokyo Bay from Yokosuka.

Beautiful fall colours on a country road in France near Luxembourg.

Paris. Nice town. friendly people. Really, really congested. Interesting tower.

Leaving Italy and heading into Austria over the famous pass.

One of the prettiest villages in England, Finchingfield.

On the Isle of Man for the TT races.
