At least in France you don't have to remember to MOT and TAX them ;-)

Thats true Steve but theres no mulit insurance schemes here , each bike is insured individualy so does cost a tad extra ........but its worth it :D

Eh?.....what you think of it compared to the xt660r you had.....they looked a bit soft in the finush dept and couldnt ride one in mx boots....

Salesman said it was a offroad bike.... :x bollocks so i walked back to my heap of sorrow :lol:


You selling the big teneree then?.. If you want to try the new lomo panniers give me a shout...
It will need some changes for sure but after riding the RR one I was totally sold on their suspension. The XTR was nice and I quite possibly should of kept it hindsight etc. The CB feels a lot lighter on the steering which was nice but to the point I would need a damper but the one I rode had standard bars. As to finish then it is a budget bike hence the wrap. The S10 stays at least for now …. a) may of made a mistake b) I really like it c) I can now at last afford to run several bikes so sod it why not d) I really like it.
To right Alan, your only here once.....enjoy :D

Ive used heat shrink wraps before, they’re okay but can be hard to get creases out of or go round bends, however I just installed an invisiframe on my mountain bike

Now that stuff is good, you apply with splash water and a squeegee. Get it wrong off it comes and you go again. Really impressed.

Now I have seen you can buy the stuff in rolls rather than pre cut shapesand given a chance I would use this stuff

What's written on the backing paper, I may be able to ID it from that.

. I bought a CB500x which will be farkled up in due course but it is spotless at the moment. :shock:
I noticed you'd popped up on the cb500x forum, I'll be interested as to what you do to the bike as I've got one.

It will get RR suspension, wheels and bash plate but the rest is being researched , half the fun. I feel a list coming on. :idea:

I fancy the RR Level 1 for mine but I've never messed with forks ever but it does seem straight forward according to their instructions so I might give it a try although I do know someone who is good at stuff like that :lol: I did 800+ miles riding up to Kinlochleven for the pre65 trial in early May it did all I wanted it to do was quite good on motorway.
