Another big advantage is that both bikes are slow enough to discourage the speeds that I no longer feel happy doing. The MZ will do 70mph but I much prefer the tiny lanes where 30-40mph is top speed. I'm tired of seeing every junction as my potential grave, which is exactly what they are at speed. The biggest challenge I've faced this year was when the Ajay declined to start after I'd stopped for a horse way out in the sticks. Took me twenty minutes and a replacement plug. I seem to have sorted that now tho!
In the last two years I've seen the light and ditched an ST1300 (what was I thinking?), a couple of air-cooled boxers and my beloved R1100RT which went to a mate. The future is definitely light weight bikes, singles I think, and slow rides. Otherwise I was just going to pack it in. There's a certain challenge in getting the lowest, reliable tickover you can on both the Ajay and the MZ. That's a lot of fun too and I see no reason why either, but the MZ particularly, can't do a tour. In fact I've been thinking of mid-Wales next year - the Rhayader to Aberystwyth back road is just perfect for an old bike and the Vale of Rheidol steam railway happens to be there too.
That is: if we can travel and if the railway hasn't gone bust. Both are questionable.
