Well lets see I’m 21 Form Glasgow with a lillte Honda CG 125 hairdryer…..but I have a nice little 1987 Honda CB 350S in my garage just waiting for me when (if) I pass my test in a few weeks.
I had a go on it already (SHHHHHHHHH! don’t tell anyone) it’s a fast little F**ker for it’s age….rekon I could squeeze 110 out of it.May 18, 2004 at 9:49 pm #19284wheelieParticipant

Big Evil / Nevis. What are your roads like for bikes up in the North West of Scotland? Are they very bumpy? (I’m invited there this Autumn)May 28, 2004 at 10:05 pm #19290RadarModerator

Glad to see a few fellow Scots on the forum. Make the most of those roads there. I’m living in Ireland now and the roads here are shite. I didn’t appreciate the roads in Scotland so much till I moved here. I didn’t appreciate the other drivers either. The driving is really bad here cos there’s no traffic division in the police. Great if you want to get away with speeding but not so great when people tailgate and cut you up and you know there’s not a hope in hell of them getting stopped.
Won’t stop me going out on the bike every day though.August 18, 2004 at 5:05 pm #19293imperialdataKeymaster
Did a bike holiday in the South of Ireland a few years ago. VERY bumpy roads, huge potholes everywhere. Lovely people there made up for it though.
I think they exported the best tarmacers to the Midlands where I live – “We’re working round the corner, will ye be wanting yer drive tarmaced sir?”
No traffic division in the police Christina? Do you have many speed cameras there?August 19, 2004 at 12:31 am #19294GSX RatParticipant

There’s a few speed cameras here but not many. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of anyone actually getting caught by one because they’re all fixed so everyone knows where they are. The police do occasionally come out with mobile cameras but not that often and it’s always in the same places. The only person I know who got a flash from a fixed camera didn’t get charged because the camera was burned out the next week. He swears it wasn’t him!
