Topics I've Started
24 April 2015 - 07:37 PMLooks like I might be back on the biking / bike ownership / riding road again by the end of next week.
Have been thinking for a while about starting a little project and really fancied getting an old Goldwing and stripping it right back and making it a bit of a custom brat bike. So I have been searching and searching for weeks for a suitable donor candidate. But then an already rebuilt and converted bike has come up for sale at reasonable money (or at least I think so) so I took the plunge and agreed to buy it, thinking I will just make a few changes to make the style how I wanted it, but at least it has already had a whole host of mechanicals done.
So there ya go. Something very different to the previous bikes I have had. Something to plod about on and look cool. Not sure how long I will keep it. Will just have to see what its like actually using it. May have to sell some of the other bikes I have acquired over the last few months though :whistle:
22 March 2015 - 08:44 PMThings are a little quiet on here so though I would try stir some conversation by putting up some old photos I have from forum meets / rides. Some faces are still on here and you may recognise then. Some have unfortunately disappeared over the years. Nevertheless I just thought it might be a giggle.......
Not all rideouts were in the nice sunny weather:
20 March 2015 - 08:20 AMAnybody watch Bike World on the telly box last night and see the review they did and the new Kawasaki H2 and H2R? :blink: WOWZERS!!!
Looks like an awesome piece of kit, both of them. Even the guy reviewing it seemed totally speechless by it. Very much doubt I will ever get to experience one though :(
26 February 2015 - 09:37 PMJust can't get this new bike clean!! Lowered seat. Lightweight. Smoked lenses. But one careful owner??? My ass; have you seen the rear tyre, no chicken strips on that bugger!!!
Just bought this as a CAT B. Rear end took the heat (rather than fire itself) and smashed and melted rear plastics and electrics within the subframe / seat unit. But other than that, and some other bodywork melting and deforming, the rest of the bike looks good. So looks like it is going to be a track bike build :D
Also picked up an RSV1000 ....... or whatever they are called (not sure how to spell Aprillia / Aprilia) but this really is just to break for spare parts:
22 February 2015 - 06:07 PMAnybody else watch the opening round of the WSBK today? Was some good racing with great finishes to both races. 1/100th between 1st and 2nd places in the second race!!
Looks like the Brits are going to dominate as both races had Brits 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and in the first race there were 6 Brits on the top 10. Alex Lowes though continued his disappointing form in WSBK though with a poor finish in the 1st race and then a retirement in the 2nd. Real shame for him as he was such a good performer in BSB and has also been practising well before this 1st round at Philip Island.
