Temptation got the better of me this morning. I texted the lad who owns it. Then for safetys sake I said I'd better ring him too. Then, in the interest of science I thought I'd take a look. It was then I realised I'd subconciously withdrawn a large sum of money from the "new house" fund....befor I even knew what happened I was doing highly illegal speeds in County Kerry on a mint 2006 Yamaha R1.......
Herself said its gonna be the worst Valentines day ever.....
Well all, got out today for a decent spin and getting to grips with the rsvr. Much happier feel on it today , not quite getting the knee down but much more comfortable.
All in all the one thing I realised today that I had forgotten about was the comradery among bikers and people who are bikers but are unfortunately stuck in a cage . The amount of acknowledgement from fellow bikers and those not fortunate to be on their bikes was mad .
It was a great to get a wave or a nod off total strangers.
Delighted with meself today ......A big happy spa when I got home
Ah the joys of it all... [Read More]
Hi, complete newbie on making mods. Bought rear fender eliminator kit and replacement LED indicators. What's best approach to wiring? Snip off existing connectors of OEM indicators and license plate light or buy new connectors? Other alternatives is find a wiring harness to connect new indicator cables to. Where could I buy new connectors or a wiring harness in Dublin? Thanks
Thanks lads for all the suggestions for an upgrade. I put the Deuville on Dungdeal on tuesday morning and it was gone that night.
Brought home the new "Bird" today
Would post a pic if I new how to do it!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I dunno about that- all these pics tell me is the headlight works....
And then there is this "classic" bike: I quote from the ad
"The motorbike is qualified old-timer in hungary,witch is an exam based on the requirements of fia (Federation Internationale De Lautomobile). It is regarded as a museal piece in all any country"

I am currently bikeless and have been for the last 6 months. I had to sell the last bike I had to free up some cash as I have been working for myself for the last 8/9 months and I basically needed the cash to invest into my new business.

I currently own an old goldwing that I purchased two years ago and I wasn't sure if I'd like a bike of this size. But I love it and I am now thinking of buying a new touring bike and would love a new goldwing but its out of my price range. So I was thinking along the lines of the baby goldwing ctx 1300, or the bmw k1600 gtl/GT. I'd love to hear from anyone who owned one of these as well as anyone who has had or knows of good feed back on another make of tourer. I travel 1200km per week 90% on motorway and the rest on secondary roads. My main must have is protection from the Irish weather, radio, top box and saddlebags & possibly a bike that can pull a trailer. Iv had a Harley in the past and don't think I'd buy another one. This choice of bike will be new and the last... [Read More]

Just back from the launch of the new Bonneville Street Twin in Dublin Triumph.
Tea, coffee, cupcakes and the concealed silhouettes:
After a brief promo talk the new Bonnies were unveiled. There were 3 models to play around with - cranberry red, silver and matt black. Silver could be started and messed around a bit (no driving though).
Quick comparison with current Bonneville - much comfier seat, tank seems to be a little bit higher, very clean looking... [Read More]
Contemplating importing a bike from the U.K , completely new to this, just wondering if anyone can tell me what documents i will need to bring it on the ferry? Also what the seller would need to do? Thanks in advance
As above,looking for a good quality painter who can spray paint and do some decals for me on the R1.
Can anyone recommend a good person to do it,has to be top quality workmanship.
Contacted Dream Machine paint in the UK over my bike.
They told me that the front oem screen was painted,so its not a sticker or decal.
They told me about 8 weeks waiting time to spray the new double screen.Id need to send the nosecone of the bike over to them too,so thats not an option.
