I used to own a Falco up until June this year and I then sold it to buy an H-D.
I saw a Black W registered Falco on the embankment this evening and we managed to say a few complimentary words on our bikes.
If this guy is on this forum I just want to tell him that he has got a very cool bike and that his black machine brought back a few memories.

See y'all!

I saw 4 Falcos during the ManxGP a couple of weeks back. One yellow, two red and one black. I saw only one during TT, when there are many more bikes over.

I expect they weren't anyone on this board, as I don't recall anyone saying they were coming over. The Manx tends to attract the more mature element inthe biking fraternity (i.e. old bikers) and the TT, as a general rule, the younger element. Hmmm, what does this say about Falco owners?

I haven't got a pipe and I possess no slippers BTW.

Yes you do. 2 pipes (loud I hope) and a slipper clutch!!!

I was there and I saw three other Falcos (all parked up, so no owners to talk to) As Tony would say" It's Grrrrrrreat!

Andy,

You should have told me in advance. You would have had the opportunity to talk to at least one. One of the ones you saw parked up wasn't a yellow one with RSC pipes, by any chance??

No, two reds and a black. I ment to say before I went but I guess I got too excited.

Too long away, and you can have a kid in that time, if you really want. Oh, that's right I've got another on the way, due before that....

Saw 8 (EIGHT) at the Stormy Petrel on Thursday - it's on the A41 just south of Whitchurch. Spoke to most of the owners and one former owner who now has a Mille R on which I had a sit. Anyway I can walk again now (only joking). Why it only came 42nd in Ride is beyond me when you talk to most owners and they rate it as superb???

Rob.

Any of you lot ever get up/down/across there on Thursdays?

Used to live near it (in Market Drayton), when I worked in an establishment not far from the Petrel.

Not been there for several years, although I do visit the area on occasion. 8 Falcos in one place? Is there an owners club I don't know about? Can't be coincidence.

Have you recovered from the culture shock yet?
Any regrets?
