Re: Honda X-ADV

Re: What's you think is the best under rated bike you have owned

If they still made them I'd have one tomorrow. Way ahead of its time. Honda Silverwing 600, yep it's a scooter but I can't leave the damned...

Re: Whats happening to me ?

These days the tenere often stays in the shed, it's just too serious for an afternoon bimble round the dales. The current bimbling bike is a silverwing. Yep a scooter.
OMG I'm becoming a scooter evangelist!!!

Re: Star Ship Enterprise!!!

The best time to really dazzle the approaching vehicle is when your about to pass each other a couple of metres apart at a closing speed of 120+

Re: 14 plate s10 side stand /mirrors

Oh damn, that means I'm the fat bastard now :-( Hope you've recovered anyway.
I could do with a bimble up to Big Scotland but kinda tied up next weekend, and too much work on at the mo to do something like the Nordkapp.

Stop eating the pies Sy, that'll sort the problem :-)
Mk 1 bikes have steel stand so get one of them - I'm guessing the fixing is the same.

Re: SAD news Nicky Hayden in serious condition

I hope he's going to be ok.
Every time I've been to Italy the lunacy of the drivers has terrified me.
