« on: 08 November 2014, 07:47:07 AM »
all this talk of "250`s on L-plates" has got me reminiscing about the good old days and the bikes i`ve owned.not sure if this subject has come up before or not,but what was the first one ?.....the X7 i mentioned in the "L-plates" post was my second bike bought new in first....A HONDA XL 100 S ...single cylinder off road style in white,not sure what the "s" was for  :lol ...had it for about a year,had to helicoil the thread in the head that takes the spark plug as one day the plug made a break for freedom  :eek  never did find it... :lol

so,what was your first bike ?

Muppet, forgot to put the year was on a "t" plate which makes it a 78/79 ....

high wycombe,oxford,whitney,cheltenham,gloucester,monmouth and into the brecon beacons ,onto abbergavenny and breakie at the oasis cafe,back on the A40 i head to crickowell and onto llansantffread ,a left turn takes me to talybont-on-usk over the river usk,right turn onto the A4558,a quick left down to talybont reservoir and a stop for some piccies,a few miles down the road and another reservoir,pentwyn reservoir,more picies,up over the mountain and down the other side to the brecon mountain railway,was hoping to take a ride but missed the train by five minutes  :o .....nice tea and cake in the cafe though  :D ,i`ll do the train ride another day,good excuse to get back out on the fazer  ;)  times getting on now and ive arranged to meet markwales and greg at the magor services at 5....i head towards cardiff via merthyr,ystrad mynarck,bedwas and a short stop at caerphilly to visit the castle and of course more piccies,quick stop at the millennium stadium then onto newport,mark and greg arrive bang on time,a quick chat and fuel and we`re off to weston.....M40 over the bridge,M49,M5 and onto weston for with boris,esetest and fazer 390 a good turnout of foccers for a mid week meet....a good chat and coffee at a good event  ,will be back next year  :thumbup [size=78%] [/size]
[/size][size=78%] its dark now so the ride home was a bit boring M5,M40 to swindon  A420 to oxford and back onto the A40 and home,335 miles in total,a good day [/size] :D [/size][size=78%] [/size]

he's helped me out so I'll start...... :)

needed clocks for my project fazer, only one place to go.......NOGGYS SHOP.....first time ive used him and I have to say I recieved excellent service, phots of part quickly posted, honest description, posted monday received on tuesday and well packed....think a grown up may have helped him with the address label........cheers noggy, thats kept another fazer where they belong......on the road    :thumbup
