Re: The next saga of my biking journey

...... and same day the Kawasaki Z900 ...... The photos I've seen of them haven't quite gelled for me, but I saw one out and about yesterday with a fruity can on it and it looked & sounded absolutely wonderful. Very nice.

Re: The next saga of my biking journey

Don't get me wrong Ian, it's not my way, but I'm just pointing out the opposing view. If you buy new, and sell when warranty is up, there is an argument to support it, especially if you have it as a business vehicle and can offset against tax ...... In my case I have one bike that is theoretically w...

Re: The next saga of my biking journey

To me a 2k fazer would be a better option as then its bought and paid for. Wouldn't rulle out spending 3-4k on a cracking naked rather than 2 grand deposit then 3 years (36 months of 150 a month) so another £5400. For a bike you hand back after 3 years So you have spend £7500 and have nothing but m...

Re: Lynmouth ?

Anyone fancy organising a run to Lynmouth from Bridgwater/Weston ? Current buns, coffee and cake would break up the run nicely. Cheers Simon Tiz a well worn path for us northerners. Wish I could get a current bun with my grocery deliveries, they're often out of date. I see watt you did ..... =)) Da...

If you go to Moto Corsa, you might also try an MV Brutale or Dragster 800 ...... Like a Triumph but with class :-bd :wink:

Re: My Castrol Racing Honda 929 fireblade Track bike build

Nice vid Dan. Thanks, Went a bit overkill with the rear wheel, you can quite often get away without having to slacken the chain adjusters to get the wheel/chain off most bikes as there is enough slack just removing the blocks on each side and pulling the axle through but thought might be useful for...

Re: never buy again lube again.....

Yep, knew that most o-ring chains are recommended to be lubed with a gear oil ....... Though I use a (Wurth) dry PTFE lube which doesn't seem to get dirty or fling :-?

Re: Sunday 21st June

Try this link. https://app.box.com/s/w286kilmpnr0ntcxjh86qskaqfisryq6 That should be a small .itn file that you place in the itinerary folder on your TomTom. Then when you open the software that "route" should be available to select as an itinerary, just select it and it should then calculate the r...

You can get an anti-seize/anti-squeal compound to do the job better than slathering the whole lot in coppaslip ......

Re: WTF?

There are loads of interesting roads in that large rectangle north of the A303, south of the A361, and bounded by the A36 in the East and the A358 in the West, that have blanket 40 limits for no apparent good reason...... As said, in many cases seems more to do with maintenance than safety....

Re: Fake exhaust

I was expecting a bigger bike to do that damage. Carbon works ok on multi's, with a more even gas flow but don't like the bigger pulses of twins and singles. The better ones tend to have a metallic insulator between the packing and the inside face of the carbon resin. I've a couple of carbon cans he...

What about the Esses, Hammerdown, Camp corner chicane and Bobbies? And a little bit on Avon Rise https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=k42plRllawc&t=18s Yes, yes, yes, but as I keep saying - why let the truth get in the way of a good jest??
