General / From wednesday we can use our bikes again.
« on: 12 May 2020, 06:28:39 AM »
The same new rules apply to motorcycles as cars from Wednesday according to MCN reports. We can now ride to open spaces with no distance restrctions, providing we do not leave England and cross the borders of Wales & Scotland. where the restrictions still apply. We must still apply the 2mtr rule though, so peeps use your common sense, don't gather in large groups, obey the rules, keep the rubber side down, watch out for dozy cagers and stay safe.

General / Screaming 600
« on: 08 April 2019, 08:58:08 PM »
Spoilt riding 1000cc+ bikes for the last 20 odd years forgot how good the feeling is getting the best out of a screaming 14000rpm, 600cc,  been out today on my 600 Triumph speed four  finally got back into the way to ride a 600. I was 63 going on 23. I got back with aching knees, wrists, and various other bits,  but with a massive grin on my face reminded me I'm 63 not 23 when I recover I'm out on it again.  :) :) 

If those found guilty knife/any murders face the ultimate punishment to dangle at the end of a rope perhaps they would think twice about going out with a knife tucked in there belt.

General / Plastic waste in seas/oceans
« on: 06 October 2018, 07:26:09 AM »
 Why is it when ever there's a programme or article in the press it's about the Uk waste/litter that finish's up in the seas, and for the record I think it no plastic should be in the sea's it should be recycled or if it can't be, not used at all. Why is it though these programmes/articles fail to show/blame the countries that's beaches/ river banks are covered knee deep in waste of all kind, especially plastic waste and try to lay the guilt trip on us. There's 2 of us in our house hold and we fill 2 large recycling bins for every 2 weeks for collection. Most of the people on the estate I live on also put out 1 or 2 full bins for every fortnight collection and a green waste bin. We had to ask for a second recycling bin so don't know how families manage with one, because it's not common knowledge you can ask for a second recycling bin. I get annoyed by the way these eco warriors always blame an easy target who for the main are trying there best to recycle, and don't lay the blame where it belongs and most of it does not belong on the shoulders of the UK population.

General / Quiet roads for the final?

Last chance for some quiet roads this afternoon. Hopefully a lot of people will be glued to the final, leaving the roads safer for us to enjoy. For those of us that take advantage rubber side down, shiny side up, ride safe and enjoy

General / Sports rack for FZ1S gen2
« on: 05 July 2017, 06:56:59 AM »
Sorry if this has already been covered but can't find anything on here. Does any one know where I can get a sports rack something along the lines of a Rentec style. Can't seem to find any one that makes one. Would use a tank bag but there's not room on top of the tank for my fat guts and a small bag. 

Introduction / Hello
« on: 31 May 2017, 07:30:10 AM »
Hello I've been riding since I was 16 first bike CB72 250 Honda past my test on it at 16 never been without a bike since.  I do drive a 4x4 as well and call it a bikers revenge leave the rest to your imagination. My passion is bikes  I have owned from xjr1300's, 1200 Bandits, to GSXR750, FZR  1000s ZZR1100s,  various trail bikes to CCM supa motos , but prefer sports bikes. Finally got round to the  2008 FZ1S as a good compromise between a sports bike and the comfort of a naked bike, to many trips down the road minus the bike and fridge/pub mean the old knees don't bend like they used to and there ain't room for my guts and petrol tank any more on a sports bike . Really impressed with the FZ1.
