  1. Oh! Yes please! My new tiger only came with a small rubber one but this would be amazing.
  2. Fair point ! I always tell newbies you cant stop yourself putting your hands out to save yourself as it is hard wired into you. Therefore gloves are a no brainer, Just think of all the things you cant do if your hands are goosed. Seems to concentrate the mind lol. Cheers Ian I'm constantly telling the kids I see riding around on scooters and 125ccs to at least put some gloves on as you'll always put your hands down no matter what speed you come off at. They just look at me like I'm a nutter because I am normally in my postie uniform
  3. The motorcyclist attempting to overtake on a fairly tight bend with double whites. He was so far over he nearly headbutted me coming up the hill in the opposite direction. Thankfully I had moved over to the left of the lane to get a better view around the bend it certainty woke me up on the commute to work this morning. A367 https://maps.app.goo.gl/F3zyVFcjYofMRjQm8
  4. Pension? What's one of them? I don't think we'll ever get to retire the way things are going and I'm going to have to pray I get something of an inheritance as I've always had minimum wage or just above wages and only really started paying into a pension scheme 5 years ago when it became something you had to opt out of
  5. Wow! Even I know how to change the pads (I don't but I know how)
  6. This is why you need at least two bikes, if you sell or one is out of action you have another to ride We did have two bikes, one just happens to be mine and I'm not going to stop him washing it
  7. Just ignore them or do what i do and start weaving about in the lane they soon back off That's what I used to do and still do if I'm on the bicycle they soon back off.
  8. Oi! I did a fine job of cleaning my chain the other day and I've cleaned it a few times before that but don't think I'm daft enough to step in and take over when you've decided to clean my bike for me
  9. I'm similar to you, always wanted to learn to ride but never got around to it, then my husband said he wanted to learn and I knew I could never be a pillion. My cbt was about £90 I think with a local school, I bought my helmet, jacket, gloves and boots in advance (£130, £230, £40, £80) but that's just because I wasn't sure if the school would have stuff that would fit me. I then bought a 125 from a dealer (£1800) which was a good thing in the end as it needed loads of work which was covered by the warranty. I finally did my full licence after about 9 months of commuting on my 125. I took a
  10. Do you think she even know how to ride? (the bike!)
  11. Oh no!, it’s so easy to do with a new bike, I hope it hasn’t done much damage and it’s an easy fix. If it makes you feel any better I broke the mirror on my last bike before I’d even got it home from picking it up, we’ve all done stuff like this. Just the hand guard and indicator glass so purely cosmetic thankfully.

No consolation but I dropped mine the very first time I put petrol in it. Also a couple of times since before I learned that if there's a slope / camber in the road and I'm putting a foot down it needs to be the uphill foot. Otherwise my short legs don't reach the ground before the bike reaches the angle of no return. The disadvantage of tall advent
  13. Dropped it I lost balance while maneuvering under the car port. I couldn't lift it without help either
  14. We both got a new bike on the same day , what did you get?, hope you’re enjoying it. Triumph tiger 800
