I ended up just using 1 tooth up on the back from stock. Raced mine at Brands and Lydden, Brands gearing generally same as Cadw...

Re: VTR ownership diary by The Lens

Shock sock will trap moisture and rust your spring, if left could cause the shock shaft to corrode too..

Re: what have you done to your "bike" today

Done nothing to it for ages, only ridden about 20 miles on it since September last year. Must put an MOT on it as it runs out tomorrow and I need to ride it for next weekend's Devonstorm.

Re: My first racing experience

Well done Nick, nice right up :thumbup: the best thing is you can only get better from now on. I've never been to 3 sisters, the shortest track I've raced on is Lydden, only 1 mile, my old Storm went really well there and similar to Al I still hold a race record in the twins and triples class (carbe...

Re: U.K. Question

One of my customers has Boss Hoss, I MOT it every year, it weighs not far off 600kg 8O not the easiest thing to test. it's nice looking if you like that sort of bike, it has an auto gearbox but not a direct one, anyone ever driven something like an Iveco auto truck/van ?, it's like that, when you op...
