  1. Sitting on bikes in the dealership is grand, any dealer discouraging this should be avoided - I'll usually know if it's worth pursuing a test ride or not from that initial plonking of the arse on the saddle. It'll either "feel" right or wrong. Especially important for shorter riders, my wife was able to rule out a whole pile of 125s, if she doesn't feel confident sitting on one in the showroom she will hardly feel confident on the road Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  2. Passed the MOT, and rewarded me by blowing a hole in the downpipe on the way home. To be fair the whole exhaust (bar the end can) looked a bit rotten so I was banking on replacing it anyway. You can get a new pattern downpipe for £60 in mild steel, or an entire system in stainless with a carbon end can for £100..... Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  3. Car if I need it for site work or its raining Motorcycle is the preferred option but only on nice days (so hardly ever then [emoji1787]) Bicycle if I'm feeling particularly active Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  4. Little CBR has cleaned up surprisingly well. It's running and ready for MOT, which I've booked for the 19th. Only remaining concern is the chain - it looks a bit horrible. Chain and sprocket kit is cheap for these but I'll see what I can do with what's there first. Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  5. As twosmoke says ZZR1100. If I had the space I would have kept it as a spare but hey [emoji1787] Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  6. The roomster was supposed to be a stop gap car but I keep finding new reasons to keep it! A full size motorcycle would be a struggle to be honest however the vision would likely go in without even taking the seats out [emoji1787] It's actually a case of two out as this dear friend made her final trip up the driveway on Saturday I'll try and get something sorted with the vision this weekend, I'm looking forward to being able to get inside the shed once it's moved....

  7. Just made a collection, this one is for the good lady Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  8. This is the yoke, I prefer the spoked wheels but the cast ones would require less maintenance I guess. Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  9. I signed wifey up to do her CBT - anytime she goes out on the back of my bike she wants to get her own, then the notion leaves her. So I signed her up with the rational "do the course and you'll be more informed at the end whether you definitely want a bike or not" Well she's halfway through (the local school split it into chunks for complete novices) and surprise surprise she loves it and wants a bike - being sensible she's decided to stay on a 125 for a while before pursuing a full license. She prefers cruiser style bikes, and as she has shortish legs the low seat height appeals - the schools CG125 has been grand but she's on tip toes with it, a cruiser would mean both feet flat. I've seen a Suzuki GZ125 at a dealer near work, are they any good? I'm guessing because it's a very basic Japanese air cooled 4 stroke 2 valve single it's going to be sewing machine reliable....

  10. Are the goldwings for sale or show? My dad is semi keen on an early GL1000..... Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  11. Next Wednesday may actually work for me Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  12. Everytime Mrs goes pillion with me she ponders getting her own license, then goes off the idea. So to force her hand and to see if it's for her or not I booked her in for CBT. first session went well! Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  13. Mercedes didn't have a compact executive in 1979 so nothing to compare the w203 C class with....and mine is already 15 years old so I need to go back to 1964. I wouldn't be seen driving "foreign muck" so potentially something like a Triumph 1300. Funnily enough the Merc is sitting broken on the driveway, much like I imagine my 15yr old triumph would.... My stopgap for the Merc is my Skoda roomster, which is 11 years old. The closest 1968 Skoda was the Octavia estate which is similar to the roomster in that it is a weird mini estate / small family car The wife's Hyundai is an interesting one, 1979s equivalent to the current i30 would be the pony. I quite like this: Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  14. If it's being roffled having an MOT even if only a week's worth would help shift tickets, as at least it can be driven home..... Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
  15. Start/finish line of Ulster GP When you next planning to come over? Sent from my TA-1012 using Tapatalk
