» great to see the bikes out and about !
Apr 20, 2014 - 10:59 PM - by paulh18
As above. Didn't expect to see as many lads out on the bikes this morning but i was wrong. Took a spin from Ferns, on through Enniscorthy, Oilgate and left for Castlebridge. Then headed back Ballyedmond, Ballycanew etc, into Gorey, then Camolin and back to the start of my little trip. Have done this little trip a few times now but today was the first day to see more than 7 or 8 lads out on their bikes just enjoying the morning. More of this dry, sunny weather please

What do ye use to remove light scratches from the clearcoat? Only visible when close up. Looks like someone washed bike with a rough cloth. Would like to remove if possible. Don't know if T-Cut is the job or not?

Qualifying three
Josh Brookes 55.093

Milwaukee Yamaha’s Josh Brookes will start the opening MCE British Superbike race of the season on the front row, after clinching pole position in what can only be described as a crash-fest in difficult conditions.

Brookes fell on his arse in the rain, not once but three times, completing a hat trick of crashes just as the chequered flag came out at the end... [Read More]

Right lads finally got a quote for a big sm of mce and im thinking of shifting on the r6 for a 950sm/smr or a 990sm/smr. Decided to change it up as I had a go on my friends 2008 690sm and there absolutely bonkers. Was just wondering has anybody had any experience with them and would they care to give me some advice on which one would be the best option. I was also looking at a 690sm/smc but I hear the 900s are superior. Any experiences and suggestions are much appreciated

Hi All,

I finally got my GSX-R 600 - Picked it up today

Just went on a gentle ride with it today. Changed a 2009 650S Bandit for it.
The GSX-R feels very different...

First thing I noticed when I sat on it and started her up....
The lovely sound she makes, and as for driving down the road, that intake roar is just a pleasure to be listening to :)

Shame I have to break it so easy for a while lol...

Most awkward thing about the change physically was: The Gear Pegs and Rear brake pedals seem very high up compared to the Bandit...

Must really pay attention not to over stress the... [Read More]

» Broke exhaust
Apr 19, 2014 - 6:59 PM - by GottaGo
howya doing lads
got a new bike a couple of months ago and need to do a few things to the old one before i sell it.
The bike im looking to get rid of is a 98 honda hornet 250, the problem with it is that the exhaust snapped on the way home from buying my new one. So obviously ill have to get it sorted before its sold only thing is from what ive seen a whole exhaust will cost over 300 quid which i dont want to have to get.
so does anyone know someone, or can anyone here do a good welding job on it that wont cost a fortune and that would solve the issue to a high enough standard? dont want to leave some bloke with a lemon.
thanks in advance

I put a couple of hundred miles on her already and am loving every minute of it... [Read More]

» Ground anchor in an underground cage park?
Apr 19, 2014 - 10:24 AM - by hagetaka
Hi all, wondering if anyone has ever installed a ground anchor in an underground cage park?
I'm buying a new bik, and will be getting very paranoid very soon
Don't live in the best area (already had an unsuccessful theft attempt once), so was thinking of getting somebody to drill in a ground anchor. I'm using an Almax chain to chain two bikes together, but would be nice to pull the chain through an anchor. The bikes are parked in a spot where no cage would fit anyways, so nobody would probably mind... any advice?

Not like I'm gonna aske the management company ofc ... [Read More]
