A suggestion from my partner here who's doing the radio-therapy runs with her brain-injured brother (shit never stops happening) : there are never magazines for men to read in hospital waiting rooms, doctor's surgeries etc. Ever. Maybe you've noticed it yourselves, I certainly have. Only women get sick or have toothaches apparently, fekn Hello or You or whatever the fuck. So if yer not a hoarder of them, why not just fire them in to wherever, and cheer some poor bloke up sometime
Just a heads up lads. Two gimps tried to enter my side entrance last night. They arrived in a 01/02 kildare registered silver Audi cage beleaved to be an A6 but could have been an A4. It has Lexus type rear lights.
My neighbour spotted them at approx 12 O' Clock parking at the back of his house and working their way down his side to mine. They climbed the wall there to get into my garden but where attacked by my dog as soon as they crested the top of my wall. They dropped back down around to their Audi and left the estate.
Hi Guys, just thought I'd put this up on the off chance that somebody might be offered Camera Gear stolen from the cage on Saturday at 1345 in Woodies in Bray.
The Gear stolen was a Sony Handicam HDR-CX190E and Canon EOS 450D with ES lenses 35 to 55mm, 75 to 150mm, 75 to 300mm, 16 to 21mm Wide Angle, 100mm Macro, plus a Macro Flash.
They were all in a black haversack type camera bag. There was assorted leads and hoods plus a professional light meter.
The unmentionable was locked but reckon zapper was scanned and seemingly Woodies cage park is hit once a week as is the Shoreline leisure centre on the Southern Cross
hi folks. Anyone tell me where I can get it. Can't find anyone selling it. Not sure if I could use parcel motel and get it in the UK. It's a great cleaner unless someone can recommend an alternative which is as good. I use the wurth lube all the time. My chains are still looking healthy after a lot of miles.
so its looking like i might have my bandit sold just waiting on the magical call
which i means i can get another bike. i am going to change to a sports bike but what size bike should i go for?
i have only ever owned a 600 gsr and a 600 bandit and a few 125s. i have riden bikes on and off for about 12 years. i would like something like a second zx9r or blade or simliar but is it too big of a power jump?
the bike will be used for the daily commute to dublin... [Read More]

I am looking to get my axels,swinging arm bolt and other fastners zinc plated..Any body know of a place in the leinster region that can do this..
I would like to bring the parts to a small factory so they would not be mislaid..Thanks..
I'm getting side fairings sprayed on a 2004 ninja ,
But I can't find replacement stickers online in same colour as
Original . Anyone any ideas ??? I have pictures of them but I can't
Up load them , it's silver bike with dark grey stickers with light silver outline .
Have to say i was surprised that M50 have the new KTM 1290 SUPERDUKE..(aka the beast).i was convinced they were about to dump the brand , they seem to have little or no interest in promoting and keeping much bikes in stock, most of the lads i have met had to source their new 1190 adventure in the uk or up north....
looking for a steering damper, with all the bits and bobs attached, to fit a 03 pointy sv650.
also looking for a single bike trailer. i would prefer if the damper and trailer were in cork but can travel around munster.
i have some gym equipment also, if somebody wants to swap or buy them, there is a multigym, bench and rowing machine, worth about 230 for the lot.
if anybody has anything just text 0852811016
thanks for looking lads

having tryed the rest i reckon this is the best,if only for the way it leaves the bike smellingbut i go through a fair amount of aerosol cans and see on their website theres a 1 litre spray bottle and 5 litre refill cans but tried bikeworld,kennedys,ccs and a couple of m*t*r factors and all they can get is the aerosols,emailed gt85 and they dont supply to the public
anywhere in ireland it can be got?
I've been chatting with Mark (CBRoar) about a USA trip in 2014 and we've kinda settled on the idea of riding in Tennessee, North Carolina and Northern Georgia for a week or so. Riding Deal's Gap, Cherohala Skyway, Blue Ridge Parkway and some other great roads that I'm familiar with.
I have been riding in this area for over 30 years and still think it's the best riding destination in the US. It's a cheap place to visit, smooth roads and not a lot of traffic.
A few piccies of the area from previous trips... ... [Read More]
A while ago I decided that in the new year I wanted to do a few track days in Mondello. I'm looking at buying an R6 that's up for sale the guys telling me theirs no log book as it was brought over from England and never registered as it was only ever used for track days by the current owner. Their is pretty much no history to the bike and the English reg is unknown. I've heard that its not uncommon for a race bike to have a log book but I'm just curious what you guys think is it a bit to shady or is it worth a shot?
Another think is he's put some race fairing on the bike, a friend was saying that hey wasn't to sure but had heard that having race fairing on a bike you'd have to go into a intermediate class rather than a novice were id feel a bit more... [Read More]
I love Ogri. I remember when I started out on bikes in 1991, and having to wait every month for 'Bike' magazine to hit the shelves. I'd flick past all the bike reviews to the back page for the cartoon strip. Side kick Malcolm, his dog Kickstart and who could forget Mitzi? And the bane of every motorcyclists existence 'Nerg nail' Would love this, original artwork from creator Paul Sample.
By comparison the Kawasaki Versys 1000 costs $13,999 and the Yamaha Super Ténéré costs $16,499. The new V-Strom can easily go head-to-head with those bikes on the road, while easily outmatching them in the showroom.
Although it doesn’t have the outright power output of its litre-plus competitors, its performance is good enough that it can now be considered an alternative choice for someone looking for a BMW GS but is on a tight budget.
