Re: Sunday 8th December Breakfast ride

Sorry I peeled off early. Not feeling too well, couldn't concentrate on my riding. What with cutting my ride short last week as well I reckon I might have some kind of lurg. Perhaps I haven't had enough cider and rum recently :mrgreen:

Who needs a padded gel seat when you can ride on a cushion of warm air. Must be Roy's latest Bandit customisation =:)

Re: So whats your plans for 2020

Re: Maybe Going Track Only

How about selling the gixxer to fund doing up an older non-sports bike. Stay off the road while you're working on it.
