» Leather jacket advice
Jul 02, 2015 - 11:56 PM - by Alex>
Hi All,

I'm thinking of buying a quality leather jacket and looking for opinions. Will be using it for daily commute and occasional weekend spin.

Never had leather jacket before, so don't really know what to pay attention to apart from looks.

Can anyone comment (from experience) on Alpinestars GP Plus/R or Jaws, Ixon Fueller, Furygan Spyder?

Perforated or non-perforated?

Where to go to in Ireland to try them on?

Any info is much appreciated!

» Brinny Motocross
Jun 30, 2015 - 10:02 PM - by babyblade197
Hey everyone. I was racing sunday 21st june in brinny in cork in the mx2 class. First race third lap and as the description says i had a crash bang wollop over the table top. The only person to claim to have seen the incident was a kid about 8 years old. I have no memory of it whatsoever. The medics reckon i was out cold for about 3 minutes. The kid says as i came over the jump i landed but the front wheel took a wobble and i went over the handle bars and they believe the bike came down on top of me. Battered and bruised but nothing broken thankfully. Out of work for almost 3 weeks but could have been worse. The bike hasnt a scratch on it as to be expected. The helmet slightly cracked and the cut all my gear off which apparently at the time i was like a lunatic over.... [Read More]

» Blackbird battery dead
Jun 30, 2015 - 7:43 PM - by JohnnyW
I just had my 2000 Blackbird in for a chain and sprocket replacement. All went fine, then drove 5 miles home. Went to start it again 5 minutes later and although the fuel pump worked I had to resort to bump starting it.

Any ideas?

I can't imagine the bike shop could have done anything by changing the chain and sprockets?
