Re: 50cc super moto geared for 16 yr old

Re: 50cc super moto geared for 16 yr old

I read 'or something like that' to mean bike rather than a scooter. My #1 son has a Kymco K Pipe 50 which if you squint looks a bit like a speed triple. It's got a semi auto clutch like a C50//70/90 and you'll see its restricted by the speed it doesn't do. It will be available from 5 September and i...

Re: Touratech screen

I've tried bigger screens but don't get on with them for negative pressure and having to look through them in filtering situations. I've got the standard screen. On its own the air was hitting armpit height and creating loads of turbulence so I bought two 20p tap washers to fit behind the top two fi...

Re: RPM Off Road Motorcycles in Milton Keynes

Looking at the location that comes up in Google I'm guessing it's run by Neil who used to run Silverstone Superbikes out of a barn behind the Bull Hotel in Stony Stratford. I bought a ZX6R from him in 2003. Not long after, around when Carnell/Riossi shut down, the barn was condemned and I heard Neil...

Re: Top Gear, Top Tw@t !!

Face facts people, Top Gear is dead. Some say it died years ago, and has just been churning out re-hashes of the same old formula. Some say that's why they loved it. In it's place BBC has commissioned a light entertainment show featuring cars that just so happens to share the Top Gear name. I'll giv...

Re: Help please - looking for Offa's Dyke Route

According to the article it's meant to be in This folder as if you look in the England folder the Coleridge Way route from issue 27 has been posted there.

Re: Wanted - front end stuff for f800gs

Im assuming you're still in Ankara? I had my front wheel rebuilt by central wheel components using SM Platinum Pro rims onto a BMW hub, it was much cheaper than trying to source a replacement wheel. I've got my old wheel as I bought a spare hub so I could carry on riding when I had my wheel made. It...
