Thanks guys :)
@Grim..., yeah chopped in the Rod mate, partly for financial reasons but also, because bikes have to be ridden, not kept in garages. I barely have enough time to ride one; had two bikes before now and it didn't work

I do not understand motorbikes as most people I know who gave had one has come off to some injury. I've been in the back of one once, about three miles at what was a billion miles an hour down the North Circukar Road. Not for me. Also, leather trousers are very warm.

My sister was a biker. She used to work at the Ace Cafe in London (also on the North Circular Road) which is some kind of biker cafe, until she was banned for life from going in the place because of bad behaviour. I gave no idea what you could possibly do to get banned for life from a biker cafe, and she won't tell me :DD

Well, I suppose a close analogy would be thrill sports - snowboarding's dangerous, people frequently get injuries but it's just an awesome buzz? Ultimately, what is life for, if not for living; life is all about risk. I'm just not the kind of guy to spend my days wrapped in cotton wool (or in a Honda Jazz for that matter :D ), and I suppose it helps that the missus isn't either - she was on the back of an RD-400 at age 14, just as I was messing with these, and other old lairy old deathtrap '70s strokers at 17-18 too. It gets in the blood and once it is, there's no cure. :)

Having said this, people who scare their pillions, especially if they're inexperienced and it puts them off bikes for life, are dicks IMO. You'd love it on the back of the Breakout, Meems, as she's a great big friendly pussycat, despite the mean looks. :)

As for warm leathers, well, you don't notice that if you're moving (albeit I only ever wear a Harley leather jacket, which is ventilated, plus drag jeans. Can't be arsed with 'Power Ranger' full leathers, plus they would not be in keeping with my big ol' cruiser lol).

Heh, the Ace Cafe is indeed "some kind of biker cafe", Meems, you're right there. :D
Oh man, you've so got to let me know what she did to get banned for life from the Ace Cafe lol. The mind boggles! :D

It's quite a common attitude amongst bikers to try and scare passengers though. I've had people do it to me, and it's possibly even worse when you ride yourself as you *know* how badly they are riding.

Yes, agreed mate.
I've had it done to me too. Must be a macho/bravado thing.

It must be about twelve years ago now... I doubt I'll ever get the truth out if her. I like to imagine it was a bat brawl, though.

Obviously I've only net Cavey once, but he reminded me of my 'dad' (actually ex-stepdad, but there you go), but esoeciakky when you chat about bikes.

Please be assured that I don't understand bikes, but he has always got loads of them. Anyway, I think you look similar.

It's been perfect weather for bikes this weekend. I had a very pleasant ride round Herefordshire yesterday.

Aw thanks Meems! :luv:
I looked like that 5 years ago but sadly am a flabbier version now lol, and giving up the fags hasn't helped on that front. I still go to the gym 4 times a week but have to concentrate on CV rather than my beloved weights.

I have to get back to how I was though since Teen Angel 2 has booked me into the Manchester half marathon with her next May, we're running for MS! (I ain't no runner lol, will be begging for tips from Kov & Co pretty soon :D )

You'd love bikes Meems; you're an adventurous, fun, extrovert person. I'll take you on the CVO if you like, despite looks she's actually a great big, friendly pussycat; a real softie. :luv:

Ive been on the back of a bike once. I think I almost died of fright.

To be fair I can get very scared just being in a car, so I think it is roads and traffic that scare me.

Old Man Afterthought is looking to replace the Bonneville. He's thinking about a GS, on the grounds that "one screamed past me yesterday at about 120" and he wants "shaft drive and a gear indicator". Which is an odd combination of requirements.

I'm assuming you mean a Suzook here (and a reasonably classic, rather than a new one). If so, bullet-proof engine (and I mean bullet proof... roller bearing crank, massively engineered; even the 550s and 750s frequently clock up 100,000 miles if well looked after, let alone the big 'uns. A courier favorite for this reason). Shit electrics, though - and in my experience, weak gearboxes too. MY old GS550ES only had 2nd, 4th and 5th in the end lol.

Ah, you mean the Beemer GS.
Not my bag to be honest; a friend of mine recently had one and described it as like "riding a monument" :D But, each to his own; plenty of people hate Harleys.

I am assuming it is. He thinks it might be too tall for MummyA to get a leg over, though. I'd quite like him to get a guzzi V7 racer but that's probably not shaft driven and dorsn't have a gear indicator.

Every day I seem some long bearded hipster with an open faced helmet, leather jacket, no gloves and wearing jeans riding what appears to be some kind of artificially aged Enfield. The urge to open the car door as he passes is getting stronger.
