David Robb on BMW C600sport

BMW Motorrad's American chief designer, David Robb, sitting on the freshly-presented new C600Sport maxiscooter, (which is actually a 650), at the EICMA show in Milan, November 2011. The C600Sport is clearly aimed at Yamaha's Tmax; let's hope it's as easy to FF! Mr Robb has interesting FF experience of his own because he rode the very first K100 Ecomobile way back in the 1980s, after meeting Arnold Wagner at the Nurburgring. March 2012 Update. David Robb left BMW only a few weeks after this photo was taken, at the end of 2011, after a quarter of a century working for the German company.

Electric FFTTW @ EICMA

Paul Blezard in the SynergEthic Tilter, an all-electric leaning 3-wheeler displayed in the Green Planet zone at EICMA 2011 (Probably the world's biggest motorcycle show held in Milan, Italy).
It was fully road legal and had a French number plate.
Not a 'proper' FF perhaps, but interesting none the less, IMHO.

BMW C600 Sport & C650 GT

This image, snapped at Von Kuenheim's presentation of the new maxiscooters, makes it much easier to see the differences between the two new models than looking at them 'in the flesh'. PNB

Carver & Genesis

The first time the final version of Genesis has ever been snapped with a Carver. This was in the car park of The Ivy pub in Heddington, Wiltshire, home village of the late Malcolm Newell, co-creator of the Quasar. This was the venue for the final group stop of BruceFFest 2011.

John B hosts BruceFFest 2011

John Bruce (centre left, blue shirt) welcomes devoted FFers at the Craft Renaissance Centre near Usk as his chickens look on in wonder. Blue Voyager owner Graham Robb is standing next to him. To the right, Royce Creasey, with his back to the camera, is gesticulating while talking to Arthur Middleton and further away, to the left, are VF Quasar owner John Cooper and 'Hooray' Henry Mayhew.

Blez Corners ComforTmax 2005

Getting the ComforTmax well cranked over on a roundabout in Surrey, 2005. The extended forward footrests were just starting to ground at this 'angle of dangle'. This photo was used in an article I wrote about FFs and the then-new Honda DN-01 in the January 2008 edition of Motorcycle Monthly. Compare and contrast with the Roland Sands stripped down Tmax530 shown at the 2012 Milan Show! http://www.EICMA.it/en/news/yamaha-tmax-hypermodified-by-roland-sands.htm PNB

Quasar Mk2 VF750 19/8/11

After pre-MOT test ride. Ready for MOT with one or two faults to fix which may fail it. Engine power is superb and yet another Quasar that needs the roof raising as head height is tight! Last minute tweaks to the rear brake saved the day! Glad to hear "I can't find anything wrong with it" after all the work I did.

Quasar Mk2 VF750 back on the road

After sitting in a garage for over 8 years I was surprised it started at all, never mind on 2 cylinders. A bit of tweaking by Pete Munden and some fresh petrol, all 4 cylinders fired up. I've now replaced the oil, oil filter, plugs, rat/mouse chewed HT lead and air filters and it starts on all 4 cylinders. I've rubbed down the rust and painted. Passed its MOT 20/8/2011 and is now back on the road. Still plenty of work to do to fix some of the dash clocks/lights and sort cold starting. Bought another 1982 VF750 so I can diagnose what need fixing on the Quasar.

Genesis meets 2 MonoTracers at Beaulieu Ride In

Beaulieu was the site of many an FF gathering in the noughties at the annual and late lamented Motorcycle World. See here: http://www.bikeweb.com/image/tid/31
The new Beaulieu Ride-In is a shadow of those events, but better than nothing, especially in the perfect weather of 26th June 2011.
