Hi all. Thinking of returning to 2 wheels after a 15 year lay off. 56 years young now. Last bikes, had them both at the same time, were a TL1000r and a Falco. Bought the Falco from a mate who I worked with at Motorola in East Kilbride. He was moving to America and I got it at a great price. Plan was to sell the TL and run the Falco but at the time, as good as it was, I felt the Falco was a bit too soft for me so sold it on. It was less than a year old at the time. Black and Bronze, quill cans...........what a noise! Anyhow, 15 years on and something has triggered bikes in me again. I think the Falco may now be the ideal bike for me. Are there any members near East Kilbride that I could meet up with and sling a leg over one again to see if I can actually fit it comfortably. I'm older and wiser but also crumblier 😩 I cycle a lot on a road bike so it shouldn't really be a problem. Unfortunately there aren't many for sale and they're all down south

Hello,
I should be travelling up to Glasgow to see my buddy up there in the not too distant future...

However, my Falco needs an MOT first so no timescale planned really, if its within the next month, I'll drop you a line!
