Peter's new W650

Here I am with my mate Peter Drum. Peter and I met mainly through teaching philosophy at a university. Peter also frequents the pub opposite my house. We were talking about a W650 for him before I decided to buy one, and I ended up buying one first, for which Peter called me some four letter words in his envy.  He rode mine and loved it, and the rest is history.

Peter also has a '74 Honda CB750 which he has commuted on since the late 1970s. He had decided it was time for something newer. This will allow his CB to receive the classic-status care that it deserves.

Peter also owns a '32 Ford and a 1940 Tiger Moth.


  1. Hi - I have a W650 with the same silver colour scheme with the blue stripe. I thouhgt it was non standard but looks like your friend has it too. Do you know if it is a Oz colour scheme?

  2. Hi Will.

    No, I don't think that colour ever made it to Australia as a new import. Peter's is an '05 grey import from Japan.
