» He's at it again.......

From Boreds.ie......
Fairview Wheelie . . . . . . . . . .
This evening in Fairview three bikes coming from Ballybough at Gaffney's pub. One decided to wave his willy at the other two and pulled a wheelie. No spatial awareness or self preservation as he never looked to his right before he released the clutch ended up with the big Garda jeep beside me turn on the light bar and siren after him. He split from his mates and headed towards Artane . His buddies were not overly impressed with him when I spoke to them in Clontarf and agreed his next renewal for insurance would possibly reflect his need for speed.
So "Pat" (I think that's what they called him) did you get a warning or points

» Rattle can paint fading
Jun 15, 2021 - 7:56 PM - by sub zero
Hows it going lads? I'm spraying a set of track fairings with rattle cans. It's going on well but when it dries its fading something fierce and looks like a piebald. Anyone know what could be causing this?

» Surprisingly better than the Burgman.
Jun 15, 2021 - 1:02 PM - by The Thread Rapist
The Burgman was good,but this Honda Silverwing 600 is far better.
Tons more underseat storage space,2 bigger front gloveboxes,12v power lead,50 litre top box,and a nice punchy motor too.
Better brakes,better screen,better riding position,and more wind protection. Build quality feels better too.

Might be time to sell the Burgman 400 on so.😉
Oh and the 99 wasnt too bad either....🤔☀️🤣

» Custom brake lines?
Jun 02, 2021 - 3:55 PM - by proto
I'd like to put longer brake and clutch lines on my blackbird, any good sourced of custom lines?

I've been looking at Jaws, Goodridge, Hel, Venhill https://www.venhill.co.uk/; fuck Brexit.

Any good Irish or European suppliers of hydraulic kit?

I wouldn't mind making the lines myself. The Hel & Venhill line builder tools on their websites are handy though.

Just went to fire up the bike, not a geek jumped her off the cage and away she goes. Rev counter at the 6 O'Clock position just moving there abouts when ticking over. Takes a bit of throttle play to get her to pull? Would this be down to a faulty / discharged battery? Battery on charge now😉 last good run was Easter weekend.

Put a deposit on this today. Definitely a heart over head purchase.
2 reasons for going RR over Factory.

1. Cost!!! Think 3k more for Factory & colour scheme not to my liking compared to the 17 model. No interest in all this suspension wizadry. I have never adjusted a suspension in any bike I've owned.

2. The 2021 RR model is a more road focused bike. Taller screen (not sure I like it, may swap it out if possible), larger rear passenger seat. Might take the missus for a spin??

3. Prefer the simple white or silver colour scheme.
