Hi All. Over the weekend of 27th-29th May, my wife and I have organised (for the 10th consecutive time) an annual 150 mile Cycle Ride across the UK from "Coast to Coast", to raise money for a very deserving cause - Macmillan Cancer Support.Many here know this, but for those who don't, Macmillan provide free care and support, both at hospital and in-home, for cancer sufferers (and where necessary, their families) which is only made possible by people making donations and carrying out fundraising activities.Liz and I have both lost our father's to Cancer, in both cases their suffering lasted a period of years, rather than weeks - and we have a number of other family members and friends who have also suffered and who benefited tremendously from the support that the Macmillan Nurses provided. We have somehow managed once again to get another 25 riders to take up the challenge with us (most of whom have links to someone who has been supported by Macmillan) and we're looking forward to a great challenge, as well as great fun (over 13,000ft of ascent).I've attached a link below to our "Just Giving" donations page and while thanking those who donated last year , we hope that there are plenty of members here who will feel inclined to help us in the cause and make a donation (or "another donation", for those who have supported us in previous years) no matter how small, or large, everything will be greatly appreciated.So here's a "thank you" in advance and the link to our donations page.https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Dean-Liz-Welburn-C2C-2017

General / Macmillan Cancer Support
« on: 26 May 2016, 01:50:17 PM »
Afternoon all,

This weekend I'll be cycling around 150 miles, from Whitehaven to Sunderland, with another 25 riders that my wife and I have conscripted - all to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Both Liz and I have lost our fathers to cancer in recent years, as well as other friends and relatives, and we can't thank the Macmillan Nurses enough for the help and support they've given to all cancer patients.

To help them, we're doing this challenge to raise as much money for them as possible, so that they can keep on helping all of our families, friends and colleagues, through their suffering.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could find it in your hearts to help this fantastic charity by making a donation (however large or small) through our Just Giving page, using the site below.


Many thanks in advance and all the best to everyone.

For Sale & Wanted / Wanted -2003 FZS 600 Fairing (silver if poss)
« on: 13 April 2014, 03:23:37 AM »
Morning all,


I'm looking for a fairing for my son's Fazer 600 (2003) - preferably perfect, in silver, but realistically, anything without cracks will do as I'm happy to get one re-painted to original silver.


Anyone know of anything ?

Introduction / New member family
« on: 13 April 2014, 03:00:54 AM »
Morning All,


Just a quick intro hello - although I don't own a Fazer "personally" (I have a FJ 1200 and an Aprilia RSV) I'm still a big fan, having bought a Fazer 1000 for my wife and a Fazer 600 for my son.


The 1000 was bought in 2003 and is in superb shape. It's been toured extensively, Liz has done few laps of the Nurburgring on it and she used it for work when she was bike instructing, as well as being just her pleasure riding toy.





This is the 600 I bought for my son when he passed his test 2 years ago (as he was only just over 17, it had to be restricted to 33bhp - but, today he rode it for the first time in full power mode)  :)


We were very lucky with this one, having bought it from our best friends in as-new condition, even at 9 years old (but only 10k miles). I fitted the rack and then put his mums top box on it (for carrying things to school) and the exhaust can (to save the original).





Great bikes.


The 600 had a low speed tumble on the left last year (early/young rider silly tip-off) which put some minor scratches on it, but nothing serious - just to keep it in top nick, I'll be looking for some replacement parts.


Cheers.
