The granny mag­net

Old Bike Australasia - - • ISLE OF MAN TT • VINCENT AT GOODWOOD • 90 AND RI -

Len­nox Head (NSW) res­i­dent Peter South cel­e­brates his 90th birth­day in May, so he thought he’d treat him­self to a new mo­tor­cy­cle. Peter is now the proud owner of a new KTM 390 which he rides daily on the bike-friendly roads around his home, which in­cludes a weekly ride with a group of mates that usu­ally cov­ers around 150 km. Peter keeps fit by swim­ming three times a day and cy­cling. “The KTM is ideal for boule­vard ponc­ing, “says Peter. “I have fit­ted a street-le­gal Akrapovic muf­fler which saves 3 ki­los in weight. It looks sen­sa­tional with its or­ange wheels and I reckon it’s a real chick mag­net, or in my case, a granny mag­net!” Bril­liant stuff Peter, you’re an in­spi­ra­tion to us all.
