Hi! I’m Kevin I’m Scottish from Fife 
I currently ride a 2011 Z750 and a 1981 KZ550LTD c3

the LTD has just been recommissioned for the road after about a 15 year storage. I’m about 400 miles down on it…
it’s a great wee bike I’ve done quite a bit of work to get her going again but I do have a couple technical questions I’ll aim at the appropriate sections later

I looked it up.  Forth Bridge, "Scotland's greatest man-made wonder," completed in 1890.

Many thanks!
That is the Forth Rail Bridge from Fife to Edinburgh in Scotland.
An engineering marvel and a great backdrop!
