Thanks for the welcome, and the help Paul  Smile

I've ridden in the rain , I just don't like it  Smile

I was a postman for 15 years, rode to work in the rain, rode around in the rain at work, and rode home in the rain  Crying or Very sad

Welcome Jim, bet you wish you still had the Mach 111. Saw an old 750 triple in a bike shop the other day for $20,000. Used to have an S3 myself but don't miss carrying a pocket full of spark plugs.

Great picture! Nearly killed myself on one - lifted the front wheel in the first 3 gears when she hit the power band each time.

Never owned a 9 myself, but the brother had a nice '76 that was pictured earlier. Closest I got was a GPZ 1100.

Another nice bike pictured above in the background is a Kat, I used to have a Blue, Red and Silver ones......wish I still had them too Sad 

Only 750 four I ever owned(80's model) had an 888(so I was told) kit in it and ali rods, what a pig......but it flew  Cool

Don't know him but I have great memories of Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs there and always thought it should have continued.
