Two weeks of virtually perfect biking weather and how many miles have I done? 30. Two trips and one of those was to MOT my CB250RS!
I hear bikes roaring about and i am stuck doing something else. Drives me mad! One nieghbour has a Laverda SFC 1,000cc triple and it just sounds glorious!Lucky bu**er has an RC30 too.June 26, 2003 at 10:25 am #16611nippyParticipant
Ah motorbikes, I remember them………
On a summer evening I can hear them from miles around mainly twins & fours.
A triple though, well that’s the best but I’m biased as an ex-Jota owner.
Radar, at least you’ve got a bike, I make do at present with a range of power tools, what a sad muppet. Still, next year…. (yeah right)

i remember reading in about 1978 whilst in a history lesson that the lavarda jota would pull upto and beond 70 mph in first gear wow that was some proper stuff at the age of fourteen when we hed only had ural kosack as a fast bike to play with. Got a fs1e today had 500 bullit long time ago
I am going onto broadband tuesday and a m8 of mine tells me i will be able to host my own picys with his help so hopeing that will be easy

@Nippy: Any of them sexy Dewalts in your collection?
He he heJune 30, 2003 at 10:37 am #16615nippyParticipant
My talents wouldn’t benefit from their stuff.
I think I’m more of a ‘CZ’ DIYer (rather than a MV one)
