G'day from Sydney

Joined a while back, but just found this section for new members in the Forum!

I have two 2002 SP2s. One with very few kms and completely standard.

The other with some nice mods and about 85000km on it.

Guess which one gets used most?

Have many other bikes, but when I just feel like a good ride I reach for the keys of the SP2 "old nail".

Brian

Welcome to the forum.
No doubt as to which SP2 gets all the seat time.
Cheers

Some Pics Loaded Up

Ok I've loaded some pics of one of the SP2s up (the standard one) in an album. I'll see if I can get one on here with this. Nope, looks like I need a web address for a pic. Oh well, you'll have to look at the album!

Too busy riding the old nail to take pics, but will get some and load them into an album also. BW

Looks like a nice one Stig. Yes, both my bikes are Australian-delivered so are Euro spec. I love that colour scheme!

Have taken some (not very good) pics of my Old Nail RC51 and loaded to an album.

Incidentally, both engines have the mysterious engraving on the rear of the cases. Can't quite make them out yet - need a better light - but will report in the relevant thread when I do. The lower mileage bike also has a small blob of red paint next to each engraving (scratching?). Definitely looks like some sort of matching code for the factory.

Cheers

Brian
