  5. Well, I've not been on recently because I was sans bike.......but that situation has been remedied at last......just need the travel restrictions lifted here and I can get out and put some kM's on it. Bit of a reduction in power from my previous steed, but I think that I can live with that....

  7. Hi All. What can I say other than "Thank you!" and you've renewed my faith The Facebook discussion was heavily dominated by comments akin to "so you only value your life at £125", which not only causes a new rider a significant level of fear, it also makes me feels like I've made a really foolish purchase, when I thought I'd done well on my research etc. All of your comments have been fantastic and confirmed my suspicions that when you want a thoughtful, measured set of opinions, this forum is exactly the place to come as opposed to listening the through-away comments

  8. Today I thought I would go in search of some new local roads! Headed the usual way to seaways cafe at fridaythorpe which can be found here First visit there in a long time and while the breakfasts are nice they are a bit small for the price! Anyway headed off to go get a tag down at Sledmere which I couldn't get to due to a road closure! so had to give that a miss Headed towards Malton and just kept turning off whenever I saw what could be an interesting road Turned out I found some pretty decent ones and I just need to look bac

  9. All, Following an idea suggested to me a few days ago, I've reach an agreement with our beloved near God @Stu to make available to all members a TMBF sticker. The image is the same as you see at the top of the forum. Size will be 20cm X 6.4cm waterproof white vinyl with glossy finish. According to the suppliers the glue is "super permanent" whatever that means. Price and payment methods are to be confirmed but it should be around the £3.50 mark not considering payment charges, (minimum, I'm sure Stu won't mind of you pay more for it ). Regarding pa

  10. So, tomorrow morning I'll be picking up my new MT09. I cannot wait. Moving from a 10 year old Hornet 600 so I expect it to be much better in every way. I know some have critised the headlight of the new Mt09 but personally, I really like it. Pics to follow

  11. My Wife and I were sitting in the living room discussing a living will. “Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug,” She got up, Switched off my laptop and threw out all the beer

  15. Hello all, an update as promised. Changed oil and filter today. Way too much oil in there, I suspect it was overfilled at the garage at the last service. Oil was very emulsified which would be consistent with the short runs I've been doing for months now. I also checked the air filter, it was clean although a slight whiff of petrol in the air box and a dribble of emulsified fluid at the bottom of the air box - no residue on filter or in the air pipe. Cleaned the fluid out and also checked the spark plug, which was perfect in colour and correctly gapped, so combustion se

  17. A little bit of positive news. Germany is getting on the ball as far as vaccination numbers go and they have recently passed a law that excludes anyone who is fully vaccinated and/or recovered from Covid from the lockdown measures. This can only improve as we head into summer and I think its only a matter of time until Germany is taken off the quarantine list. plenty of time for this to pan out. we're due to cross in 17 weeks. (119 days) Be patient. The Schloss awaits.

  20. Thank you so much, guys! I'm guilty of having been AWOL for a while now, but to be completely honest life has just got in the way... started a new full time job after over a year of zero income due to COVID; and was also working on a new photography business as a sideline... https://tonyangelimages.com Anyway, hope you're all well and I'll try to get back to participating here as soon as I have a bit of headroom!

No problem though I know what to expect now and which areas I need to work on, anyway that's done now so let's talk fishing

  24. Got on the shadow before 10am, went to Stoneheaven, Banchory, Ballater, Braemar, Perth then home. Arrived just before 4pm. Sunny, not very cold, except the Cairngorms which is always cold light east wind getting a bit stronger after 3pm. A great day for a 230 miles trip

  26. Nearly there: Ran out of shiplap thanks to wife changing her mind about the corner junctions. I had a little try at torching the roof felt - it's a total piece of piss! I can't believe people charge to do it! Wife just went and had a look at how I'm getting along and said "I think this would be good as a summer house".

  28. I rode it! Had to go to Ipswich for a second jab of vaccine or placebo - don't know what. Zoomed down the A12 to get there as the staff were waiting in for me, but had a good ride back on the twisty roads via Framlingham. The roads were in great condition - all the crud of winter's gone - so a cracking ride. Loads of bikes out.

  31. Indeed , a most pleasant meeting . Cheers for the go on the Superglide Ian , that's given me plenty to think about . I didn't make it to Uppinghan but I'm not bothered because I had a great ride around the surrounding area . I could have had a look at my phone to see where I was but I just didn't want to stop riding . Coffees are on me next time .
