  1. Hey all, been a long time since I’ve been online. Recently had a small issue with my motorbike (ybr 125) I basically just braked (front and back) and my steering started swerving, no tyre puncture and the garage can’t actually see anything wrong with it. But then my partner suggested it could be the chain and sprocket, so my question is... If your chain and sprocket was worn/loose, would that cause you to lose control of your steering? All it did was swerve left to right (I had to physically balance myself) but I got my bike recovered just incase. Thanks!
  2. Thank you guys, an admin messaged me now. I’m a bit dumb with phones to be honest so
  3. Sorry, I wasn’t sure where to post this but I need an admin of this page to message me please, it’s quite important. I wasn’t sure how to message anyone. Thanks
  4. You’re about two hours away from me, I’m looking to build confidence up as I struggle with anxiety around my bike if you’re interested?
  5. Hello all, summer time so bikes are back out on the roads! Just wanted to say hello to everyone really as my last post was about me coming off my bike and being in hospital...Im all healed up and have a new YBR again I was just curious, not sure where to ask exactly, but if anyone has any motorbike boots that they’re selling cheap? I’m looking for a size 6. I did buy some new ones on sale but they’re too small and I can’t return them. It would be so helpful if someone did (I’ll buy of course). Hope yall are doing well! Be safe
  6. I personally find it wrong but others opinions differ. There’s a biker near me that always wears the polite jacket and it’s not that it scares me, but you are tricked into thinking it’s a police man.
  7. I go from rock music, to Eminem, to dance music... all in one day
  8. Hehe I love this forum, it’s been the best therapy for me! I do struggle with the bike to be fair, I’ve never really had any connection with my bike since my first one got stolen. And plus I’m on a hire bike A hire bike eh......did you know they are the fastest bikes in the world Definitely feels like it, I got to 75 mph on mine
  9. Never really thought about that to be fair, sounds like an idea
  10. Cut out the baked beans before ridding. Dammit, I knew this joke would make an appearance again
  11. Thank you for the advice! I do tend to talk to myself a bit, and I do tell myself to loosen up when i tense up a bit. I always feel like I’m going to slip And I’m sorry, but I can now imagine somebody just slumping off their bike because they don’t wanna take a corner I’ve been quite miserable with all of this, so thank you for making me laugh! I know just what you mean about talking to yourself when you ride, I'm looking forward to when you have your confidence back and tell us that you're now singing in your helmet too! I also constantly worry about slipping, especially mid-corner I worry about the tyres just losing their grip / connection to the road. I have to tell myself that I have to trust the bike, I have to trust that she will stay connected to the road and handle the corner. If nothing else, it's far less damaging (both for rider and bike) to lowside than highside midcorner! Personally, if I've really over cooked a corner and it's going to go tits up, I would much rather the bike fall on it's low side and we both slide until we stop, rather than snatching the brake / going stiff and the bike 'bucking' and high-siding! So just relax and put your trust in your bike. Added to this you will eventually get to know your bike so well, it will become second nature to react to how she feels and you'll recognise small quirks that will make you a better rider. Really glad I've made you smile, I know my wording was daft and I did consider changing it, but I know after my big horrible off, it was the love and the humor of this forum that got me smiling again and started the recovery from it all. Hehe I love this forum, it’s been the best therapy for me! I do struggle with the bike to be fair, I’ve never really had any connection with my bike since my first one got stolen.

  13. I’ve actually never ridden on big roads by myself at all! I always ride out with my boyfriend but I feel he gets impatient with my speeds, and wants to zoom off. I’d love to ride with others but there’s never anyone about that will! Oh, and I’d love to ride out! I’m always looking for new people to ride out with. Sorry I got to keen typing before I read the entire message
