but a shit year for Relationships......... truth be known. oh dear that doesn't sound too good :(

where i live, at the end of a cul de sac, peeps park in the turning head and the driveway is on a slope so it is a rare thing to be able to do a clean sweep into the property, with the parking and all it means hauling bikes around, all a bit difficult and i actually did drop one that i previously owned which wasn't that heavy although i couldn't pick it up without help, it's the awkwardness of it at low speed/manoeuvring really

i wouldn't make a sexual connection myself but there is no doubt that these huge bikes are something of a missile.

Loving the bike and loving the biking! Still crap myself at the acceleration (blush) !



I still remember the feeling of speed on the training schools GS500... It will pass, especially when the good weather returns. The er6 is a great way to start.

The "Green Meanie" is parked in front of the Cerne Giant.......... It's only a few miles from where I live........ It seemed Apt at the time...... When I posted on the MCN forum that the Bike had been altered by fitting the Yoshi's, PCV, Race Filter and Custom Mapped............ I got in to a lickle bit of Twubble .... with a Vicar............... Basically He Questioned the Size of my Manhood and it all went downhill from there................ ( I Love Dots ) ..... anyway It has 197 RWHP and goes like Fook but It's a real pain to ride and I miss the Busa.........

Hi there,

I've been sent over to see you all by kwacky, we've been chatting on twatter a lot and generally taking the piss out of what is out there to take the piss out of.

I'm waaaaaaay down south, the other side of Exeter so a bit far away to pop in for a cuppa, engineer by trade(although due to accident at work no more). I do pretty much all my own spanner work and also have done 4 day suspension course at Reactive Suspension in York.
I run a bike forum, southwestbikers.com, ride my road bike when i can, 990 superduke R and like to play on track when i'm able, 2007 zx10r.

Been riding since i was 16, am now, ahem, 44. Have a natural confusion at how a normal person can buy a gixxer and almost overnight and within a couple of days be a self proclaimed riding god, give out information like it's sweets and then plant their bike into a roundabout or hedge. Seems to be an international problem.
Maybe we need to raise awareness, release a record or something???

regards

simon

Welcome Fidget!

Loving the Track bike, you need a white lid though!
Remember: If in Doubt use Full Throttle, It may not make the situation any better, But it will end the suspense...

Hi ya Simon/Fidget

Nice track bike, I have a green one the same, but up for sale atm as a single parent now and can't work a track day in very easily.

I'm down south too, bit further than you, a little county call...Australia (lol)

Good to see new blood, hope we don't scare you off!

Hi and welcome Fidget, I’d guess you’ve photobombed more than a few trackday pics in that disguise!
