Re: Who can remember their first big trip?

92' to France on an XBR 500 with a £9.99 Argos tent (leaky Wendy house :) )

And might be a bit biased against the DRZ due to it treating me to an air ambulance ride because of a throttle cable problem, that Suzuki redesigned the following year with a routing tube thing fo...

Re: quick advice needed pls re viewing Cheap DR350 !

Re: quick advice needed pls re viewing Cheap DR350 !

Can't really judge the bike you're looking at, as would need to see it (and it's owner) in the flesh first But had a 98' kick start only DR 350 from new, and it started 2 kick every time from cold and only took about 5 when it had been upside down! :shock: But still consider it the best all round an...

Re: Happy Christmas!

Bit of both here :D Did enough to keep a wife that has sanctioned, and has even contributed to every thing from a new bike to a trip to Morocco this year sweet, so more than happy to go along with a bit of the annual farce in exchange So a posh brekkie, walk in the (sadly dog shit riddled) local woo...

Re: Bikes you just wouldn't ride?

I saw a Gold Wing once with a custom paint job involving wolves and red Indians, covered in sparkly lights with a couple sat on it in matching gear (including CHIPS sunglasses!) than made me realise there was a limit for me - and I've ridden some crap over the years! :D :D
