Re: Undercover MOT Inspector

We don't have MOTs on motorcycles in France and there are not thousands of biking deaths due to dangerous bikes. We don't have road tax on them either.
Come to think of it we don't have annual technical inspections on microlights either, nor checks on our flying licences.

Undercover MOT Inspector

Going round garages and bike shops round Brum with cars and bikes that should fail an MOT. Vehicle gets passed and then he stings them. A bike shop in SE Brum got done a couple of weeks ago according to my uncle.

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

... the alarm connector and re-fit the standard exhaust, the alarm connector is not there (under the tank) as it's been wired directly to the bikes loom and the standard exhaust does not fit, like a bit was cut off the headers to fit the Delkevic (lol) Ah well, all other related wiring connectors ...

It has been a couple of years since I just went out alone for a day.

Small groups are always best! Even 5 can get a bit much. 2-4 is ideal in my experience

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

Took the Italian mistress out for a ride. Whoever said naked bikes help keep you sensible was lying. I have noticed that people who ride nakeds on trackdays seem to be the people having the most fun , they are not fixated on improving their lap times or ...

There was something quite satisfying about chasing the bigger bikes down wasn't there.

Great trip that one.
