Re: Your most disappointing bikes.

Yes, it's all about perception. I've never owned or even ridden a disappointing bike. I have, however, had 3 cars, over the last 36 years, for the odd year or 2 and they were all disappointing - I shan't be buying one of them again ;) The bikes I've had that were 'disappointing ' were bikes that ju...

Re: Your most disappointing bikes.

Most disappointing was a new type Bonneville, mainly because it failed to live up to the way it looked. Great at a 100 yards, but fake and plasticy close up A Beta 270 next, because the horrible, vicious overpowered thing doubled my admittedly mediocre trials scores until I went back to a tamer 250 ...

Re: Stopped by police?

Anyone who has trail ridden much will surely have had to deal with some or all of the things on the list? And sadly putting up with it seems to be part of trail riding these days! :( Personally had most of them including a farmer who wasn't keen on traffic using the legal byway that ran straight thr...

Re: 2017 DAKAR rally...wtf...!!!

Opolgies to the OP for digressing, but as loads of others are....... :whistle: Having done a few enduro's - the Welsh 2 Day, Powys etc thought I'd try a Welsh rally for a change Lining up at the start of the Cambrian on a WR 250 next to a CRF 230 and Triumph 800 wondered which one of us had chosen t...

Re: Thank goodness for a Steve Wright relief

He's painful granted, but what about Chris Evans? ....Good Lord, I'm loathed to say I hate someone I've never met or who's never done anything to harm me....but, that prick..."let's drive our Ferraris for charity" Chris-friggin-Evans, he's beyond irritating. +1 does he still play bit's of his blood...

Re: TTR 600 footpeg replacements

They do look posh - maybe a bit too posh for me!

Thanks

Re: humour time...fizzy or ap50?

My 'unrestricted ' SS 50 (can't imagine how slow a restricted one must have been!) had pedals
Was anyone apart from me daft enough to ever try and use them? :blush:
I can't imagine any other way of using so much energy for so little effect!!
