At last John Mcfee gets the win he so richly deserves,any win in Moto 3 is exceptional but that was top draw,I thought hed blue it when he slipped back to 7th but he just plugged away picking them off one by one,and these are no dummies, hard, nothing to lose youngsters who don't give a toss for anyone.Brilliant absolutely brilliant. :woot :woot

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Rossi almost there
« on: 14 April 2019, 09:41:40 PM »
Don't begrudge Alex Rins his win one bit, but how many race fans were willing "The Doctor" to win on Sunday ? it was a shame Marquez crashed out but I don't think it's a hollow victory for Rins,it don't matter how many fall off or break down at the end of the day,he won it well,nobody wins a Moto GP race easily these days. :thumbup

I wonder what the other teams are thinking when Marquez can gap the field at half a second a lap! that's really to much to accept with the current bikes and riders,I can't believe he's that much better but no one could go with him this weekend,let's just hope it's a one off or we're in for a right boring season.Great to see the doctor back in the frame though,bet Maverick wasn't to pissed off ay? ;)

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Guy's back
« on: 26 March 2019, 07:34:11 PM »
Good news about Guy Martin doing the Cookstown 100 this year,when we used to go to all the big irish races you could guarantee he'd be up there with the Dunlop boys,Ryan Farquar,Bruce Anstey,etc,etc,and the craic after was something else,especially if once in a while you went to Joeys' bar. When I was racing I sold Guys' dad a Rob North triple,this was when they wasn't a classic bike,they was well competitive, unless it was open 1000 races when the latest Yamaha TZs' would just fuck off  :lol but I remember Guys' dad being a nice bloke ,proper friendly northen type and when I seen the bike at Darley some time later it was like a different bike,absolutely mint! when I had it it was a bit rough to be honest,as long as I could get out for the next meeting I was happy.I think Guys' only doing classic races at Cookstown,funnily enough on a Rob North triple,I've often wondered if that might be my old one 'cause there can't be that many about,must try and find out.

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Amazing Alvaro
« on: 17 March 2019, 08:51:14 PM »
Wow! 6 out of 6,I am a big big fan of Johny Rea,but what a performance from Bautista! he not only won all his races,he demolished the field.You could argue he's got the perfect package from the off but even so he's not the only rider on a V4 Ducati,maybe after all there is a major difference in ability from Moto GP even down field.We'll see what happens when they come to Europe,it may be a speed differential as Rea,Lowes,etc are saying,but if it ain't we could be looking at the biggest whitewash since all the factories pulled out and left Agostini to breeze away to a few unchallenged world titles. :eek

Talk about a slapped wrist! after what can only be described as one of the most dangerous stunts in modern day racing which could easily have caused a major injury if not worse,this twat gets off with a couple of races ban! O.K. you don't want to see a great young talent banned for life but where's the deterrent in the future? this will always be used as a precedent for anyone trying to get away with a risky manoeuvre !Defo ban for a season IMO. :thumbdown

« on: 20 February 2019, 09:42:46 PM »
I'm thinking of buying a set of stainless pipes for my gen 2,mainly because I can't stop them staining no matter what I do,do you think the stainless ones will be any easier to keep clean ?

Very sad to hear of the passing of Nigel Rollason the only man to win on the isle of man on 2&3 wheels,we were a bit younger than him back in the day but he'd always have time for you,and give us passes for the big Mallory meets.nice bloke,R.I.P. NIGEL :(

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Rea's the man again !
« on: 30 January 2019, 01:19:47 AM »
Can't wait for WSB this year,what with Tom Sykes starting to click with that fabulous BMW,Alex Lowes really on the pace and the incredible,unbelievable,Johny Rea ,this year will be I think one of the best ever! Bautista will be up there from the off,Chas Davies if his back gets sorted.All the usual suspects and some fresh blood from MotoGP and Moto 2, it's got to rival the Fogarty days! Haslam will be using a fresh set of excuses for mediocre performances but once he's seen what a true maestro Johny Rea is he'll maybe quit all that bullshit and get on with being an also ran again.It won't be a walk in the park,it never is but I really think Rea will clinch another title and go on to be the greatest WSB rider ever,he's that in my eyes anyway. :woot :thumbup

A young apache brave asks for an audience with the chief "Come,sit and speak of your problems" "Thank you Geronimo,I was hoping you would explain how we got our names" "Ah,I'm often asked this question,you see it's quite simple,we name the infant with what's occurring at the time of birth,so Running Deer was named because a beautiful deer was running across the plains,and Sky Flash was named when a comet blasted across the heavens and your own brother Steel Blaze was named because the sun glinted on your fathers' tomahawk when he was born Thunder Brave when there was a violent storm,Fighting Bear who fought a grizzly bear,Stallion Breaker,after the great horse man,does this answer your question Two Dogs Shagging?"

I was really pissed at Rossi going down at Sepang,I thought his winning days were over to be honest ,it would have been a great day for him especially after the brother winning his 1st moto2 race! Not to be though and I don't see him winning at Valencia but you never know. :think

« on: 28 October 2018, 07:43:49 PM »
 :thumbup What a fantastic day at Philip island! right from the off with Moto 3,at one stage 6 abreast going into some corners ,through surely one of the best Moto 2 races since Mattia Pasini won in Italy,to a brilliant Moto GP which even though Vinales got away was still an unbelievable battle for 2nd,Megga,Megga,Megga.!!!

Anybody think Danny Kent will do any good in BSB ?I hope so,surely you don't become world champion in a red hot class by default !I hope this is where everything finally comes together,he's still only 24 but seems to have been around for much longer.

 84 year old bloke gets a phone call from the inland revenue"we've noticed you've been spending a lot of money lately and we'd like you to come in 9'oclock Monday to explain where it's come from" better get myself a solicitor to come with me he thinks,so Monday morning he arrives and a right smart arsed tax inspector's there,"now then where's all this money come from?" well,I like to have a bit of a gamble now and then and do alright,he says,"are you telling me you've been spending all this money gambling?I don't think so" well he says I bet you a grand I can bite my eyeball!"don't be stupid! ok then I'll have a bit of that,you're on" so the bloke takes his false eye out and bites it,"bloody hell I didn't expect that!"I tell you what I'll give you a chance to get your money back,I bet you 2grand I can bite the other one,the taxman thinks well I didn't see no guide dog and he hasn't got a stick,so he must be able to see! "ok, I'll bet you the 2grand" the bloke takes out his false teeth and bites his other eye "I don't believe it" says the taxman,tell you what I'll give you chance to get your money back and more,you see that litter bin over there? well I bet you 5grand I can piss into it from here and not get a drop anywhere but in the bin,"no chance,that's impossible I'll definitely take your bet" the bloke gets his pecker out and pisses all over the office,over the floor,the desk,everywhere."ha,ha,ha,told you you waster" yes,you were right to take the bet,but on the way over here I bet my solicitor 10 grand that I'd come in here and piss all over the office.

 Can you believe this fuckin' maniac !! :eek pulls a rider's front brake on at high speed and gets away with a 2 race ban. Like Cal Crutchlow said he should have been banned for life,this ain't the 1st time he's done this,he's an idiot, a dangerous idiot.There's the red mist and there's craziness. :thumbdown

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Crazy ref
« on: 09 September 2018, 12:07:52 AM »
I couldn't believe Tai Woffinden's disqualification this weekend 'til I realised that the ref was Polish and Tai's closest rival is also,what goes round comes round,it'll take more than dirty tricks to stop him taking another well deserved world title. :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / haslams in dream land
« on: 02 September 2018, 12:34:41 AM »
Just read a quote by Leon "had every chance in the racing world" Haslam,saying "I've beaten Johny Rea  as many times as he's beaten me" who does he think he's kidding? he will find out like Tom Sykes did what a brilliant rider Rea is and Tom is twice the rider Haslam is,he's been living off the back of his old man's great career for years getting the best rides and making every excuse for his failure.There are some excellent young riders out there who would give anything to have a fraction of the chances he's had,after all this time he's still only won a scooter championship.He'll probably win this years BSB title with Shakey out ,wouldn't bet on it though.

How hard would it have been to run it tomorrow? it may have cost a few quid extra to keep some people another day but in the long run everyone would have benefited especially as it was a bank holiday anyway.I wonder how they intend to re-emburse the fans !

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / play in rear wheel
« on: 26 August 2018, 10:09:54 PM »
Hi, While adjusting my chain I noticed a fair bit of play in the rear wheel when in gear,probably 2 to 3 inches is this the norm? the bike rides ok with some snatch in the first 2/3 gears but nothing you would think was a problem,thanks for any comments. The bike is a 2010 fz1n.
