Re: The ups and downs of chinese bike ownership - Herald 250cc classic custom

Well I went and done it. Not really had chance to give it a good blast due to work but it's miles apart from my last bike. The only problem is that it's rather quiet. Need to have a look at replacing the exhaust soon.

I was just wondering if you still had your Herald? Just been looking at them and they do look quality. Cheers

Re: Green Lane run vs. Shopping trip

Hi Graham, give me a shout if your going for a tootle. It was a good day out at Rivington. I was going to give it a try going up the ice cream run but thought better of it. As you come down there are a few gnarly steps and I didn't fancy smashing my bike in going back up!!Cheers, Matt

Re: Green Lane run vs. Shopping trip
