    Mana photo gallery all around the world, in fine places

    There's owners from all over the world, so, why not to share pictures of Mana's in cool locations....

    I begin (and You follow )

    Switzerland:


    Passage of Stelvio, later Switzerland:


    Austria:


    Even the cows are intrigued by the exacerbated technical that the Mana proposes


    the mana smokes, after such a climb...

    Summit (3000m altitude)

    Hey! What a great idea!!

    This is the best I could do, for now:

    The Mana and the Bol d' Or out front of the "General Store", Spanish Flats, Lake Berryesa, Napa County, California, USA.



    More to follow!

    Thank You Jim. Yes, it's a decal. You can find it in many different colors..

I'd love to see your Mana surrounded by your green, tree filled, rolling hills, or perched at the top of the hill looking down over your city of three rivers!

    148Km. We're civilized in Oz and use the Metric system!

    As for seeing few Manas? I think it will always be thus. Most motorcyclists are very, very hidebound and conservative. Anything *New* or *Different* always has a hard time being accepted.

    it's so true!

    Hey!!! 76 horses in front of these saloons... there must be a lot of cowboys inside...


    SapperPest19, il like the grey one. I had one for a day, before to buy mine, and I love the copper reflects under the sun. But we've got so few sunny days, in Belgium...

    Yes, and they also like Z750...(3270 sales from January)
    only 360 Mana for 2008
    Fortunately, they buy Dorsoduro... 900 for the first 6 month of 09, 282 Shiver, and the last of the Italian top 100 (in which not even the mana) is the Triumph Scrambler with 165 sales...
    Do you thing Italian's are waiting for the Mana GT??

    ps: in september, I do Corsica

    Naw, we were just waiting on the California DMV to get off it's collective butt and send it out to us. It's like 4 to 6 weeks sometimes! Absurd.
    the day after in Belgium if you don't want to go to the office yourself and have it the same day...
    BUT we CANNOT drive without it!!!!



    Héhé... great picture (the two others are.... big... )

    A few more, scarcely *exotic* and taken in a windy and blowy Bungendore showing the Mana in it's true environment, OUTSIDE THE PUB!!!



    That's the 'Bottom Pub' so called because it is about a metre and a half lower elevation than...



    The 'Top Pub' Which is a much nicer building but has a bit less patronage and 'Atmosphere', dunno why really??







    And a few more of the bike at the pub! why not??

    Headlines : Mana rode thru Bungendore

    My wife & I have owned our two Manas for many years. Been following the Forums for technical advise for a long time but never felt there was anything interesting enough to post until now... was doing a small trip a few hundred KMs out of Sydney (Australia) and quite by accident came across the King Highway. Rode passed Bungendore aka "Pete Roper's Country" .... I thought surely a Mana going thru there is newsworthy enough to share ..... felt like asking the pub owner where Mr Roper lives and have the belt checked while I was there . Pete, if you are reading this, nice ride down to the coast from where you are.

    Post up, everyone! We'd all love to see!

    Not particularly exotic but here's one of mine all bagged up and taken down the coast.



    And another that I think I've posted before.



    I'll try and get a couple in some slightly more interesting locations in the next few days.

    Well, perhaps to you, Pete...for me, anywhere you ride on the wrong side of the road is exotic...
