I went there to look at a car once, Merc CLC iirc, but he didn't offer me enough for the beemer, had a few bikes in then, mainly 70/80's stuff, nothing quite so exotic as a Desmosedici.

Sheffield must be the Ducati capital of the UK, what with those, all the ones at 'The Bike Specialists' and SMC the official local Ducati stealership.

I rather like that.

But I'm wondering if the brake reservoir's going to whack the fairing on full right lock?

Interesting engine. I think Koenig are the only for and aft boxers I've seen before ( and they were adapted power boat engines )

It put me in mind of one of these, which I suspect it took its styling cues from?

I was thinking the same thing. There were a couple of old British makes that had a fore and aft boxer engine, Douglas, and Williamson.

Harley did too IIRC, and probably Indian, in the US.

Nah.

It will whack it long before that.

Did someone call for an ambulance?

Delhi: CRPF and DRDO launched specially developed RAKSHITA - a bike ambulance to attend to urgent evacuation needs of security personnel in the event of medical emergency/battle injury in naxal affected areas.

I've been to Delhi a few times and if I had a serious spinal injury I'm not sure I'd want to be driven around those roads in one of those :D

Reminds me of my recovery/delivery days. I got all excited about a car recovery system based on a big Honda.
