My maternal grandfather (on the left) and one of his brothers rode Harley-Davidsons.

Weather permitting, the Kawasaki race bike makes it’s debut on Saturday. We had a tire changing party Wednesday night and some shakedown rides on the road. Johnny was really grinning after going over the bike and riding it. His dad took a few spins too.

I've posted photos of my other Ariels on here before so now it is the turn of my 1950 NG. This is a single cylinder, 350 cc machine. It certainly won't go up a long, steep hill in fourth gear but puttering around the backroads on it is a lot of fun. Speeds of 50 - 55 mph are comfortable but much more than that makes it feel like the motor is forcing a bit too much for a 72 year old machine. In the background of the photo is my relatively new, 50 year old International tractor.View attachment 751390
Many years ago I had a friend that was into flat track racing with side cars. I helped him set up a side car to his Ariel Square Four with steering components from a car so it could lean over and go faster than competition in the turns

Went on little tour in Corsica.
Roads there are fantastic. Navi says 44 km = 1h 13 min 😎 +/- so it was. King of second gear :ROFLMAO:

As we were 2 up, chicken strips still exist :oops:
