Re: Newbie from Exeter

I reckon most of mine had gone missing when I started out, but things definitely improved over time. Junking that horrible classic rear wheel cowling saved a lot of weight for a start. And getting i...

Re: 1st time VTR1000 owner, Wales.

Re: Me

I passed my test on my brother's CD175, it was the first bike I ever rode on the road, after learning on a 2-speed Puch (I think?) 50cc moped across the fields. Those were the days. CD175 was a terrific bike, had a lovely combination of induction and exhaust noise. Was a little naughty on it in the ...

Welcome to another member from the south :biggrin
Thanks! I started in Hampshire and did live as far north as Manchester once. Didn't like it much. Although I swear it rains more in West Devon than it does in Manchester...

Re: Newbie from Exeter

You know sometimes someone's selling a bike that's been taken apart but they swear it's all there and was running perfectly before they took it apart? I've never understood how that might come to be.
