» Removing stupid fucking stickers
Sep 19, 2014 - 8:37 PM - by Gitzy
Any tips or tricks to get stupid fuckin' stickers off plastics without leaving that manky gunky residue behind?

I find it will be necessary to change the colour of the bike from Canary feckin' yellow but the imbecile who owned it previously has plastered it in gaudy race-esque stickers.

I plan on Plasti-dipping the whole thing ( I HATE prepping for paint )but I'll need the surfaces clean and sticker free to do it right.

Been eyeing these up a lot lately, they look gorgeous. When I was buying the RC8 it was a SMT 990 I was hoping for as the 1200 Multi was still mad money. I see they've come down to within my (fantasy..) budget lately. Anyone have one? Opinions? Horror stories??

Picked up some stuff from today (ordered Wed evening and arrived in full today)
Got the boots, a neck warmer and the back protector there

Just happened across an auction overflow sale this afternoon and saw the leathers for €65, had a quick try and they were a perfect fit so for the money I reckon I did well.
Anyone ever hear of the brand? Just looking at them they seem very well put together and are as heavy as fuck

Sep 19, 2014 - 1:45 PM - by strontium_dog
Just wondering where you would get hold of and how much would you pay for a set of used wheels and wets for a ZX10R. I used have a track bike but ended up selling it through lack of use but I was thinking I wouldn't mind doing another one even though we are getting towards the end of the year. The CBR I owned had a set of wets and I have to say I thought they were business.

» Nearly beaten by a harley
Sep 18, 2014 - 3:43 PM - by FlatOut
Race with a Harley

I raced a Harley today and after some really hard riding I managed
to PASS the guy. I was riding on one of those really, really
twisting sections of mountain road with no straight sections to
speak of and where most of the bends have warning signs that
say "MAX SPEED 50 KPH".

I knew if I was going to pass one of those monsters with those
big-cubic-inch motors, it would have to be a place like this where
handling and rider skill are more important than horsepower alone.

I saw the guy up ahead as I exited one of the turns and knew I could
catch him, but it wouldn't be easy. I concentrated on my braking and
cornering. Three corners later, I was on his mudguard.... [Read More]
