Re: I have never owned a motorcycle with...

Boxer or a V-twin
Shaft drive
Trail / adventure bike

(I can only think of a couple that didn't have clipons or dropped bars)

Its not helped by having the biggest bubble they could find :) The fairing doesn't look so high on other P&Ms, I assume its been replaced

Re: Restomods - what would you have built?

I've just watched the XJC episode of Wheeler Dealers (on Quest). They reckoned the 4.2l straight six was betterer. I also had a XJ 4.2 straight 6 both were nice :thumbup: The 12 was heavy so on soft suspension it rolled a lot but you really could balance a 50p on the engine. When i first got it, it...

Apparently available in the 1980s, known as a 'babe cage'. I decided to not Google it.
I can imagine those bars bending and trapping the riders limbs in an accident :wtf:

Re: BOX FRESH: A ZERO MILE HONDA CB750 CAFE RACER

Aside from the fact its a CB750 I like that, big gap, pod filters and all. That's what our bikes looked like in the mid 80s when we got something usually late 70s and stripped all the dead weight off. Except that's not painted with a rattle can and looks a damned site prettier

Re: Astrazeneca/Oxford vaccine approved

Its been decided that asthmatics are not a priority. It was on the BBC last week. Apparently we are at an increased risk of long Covid but no greater risk of death. You only get bumped up the list if you take steroids orally and have been in hospital. Steroid inhalers don't count, only tablets. I've...

Re: Harley-Davidson turn the adventure bike market on its head with the new Pan America

Yeah, that didn't look at all bad but their new strategy seems to be the same old 'concentrate on their core customers'. Does seem a bit doomed.

How does it turn adventure bike market on its head its just another tractor...
Harley producing a short stroke 150bhp motor is much more interesting, but no they 'lose' it in this POS.
Stick it in an XR750 rep and they might actually sell a few

Re: The Official Pleasing Purchase Thread

Cheap electric guitars. They should be terrible but they're surprisingly ok. I assembled one, as a kit, over Christmas really to see how awful it might be and because the length of the Christmas break can be well boring ;) Yeah the electronics are at the cheap end but I was expecting real out-of-th...

On my driving test, half way through the 3 point turn a dog came and stood in front of the van and puked for what felt like an eternity. I failed that one :lol:

Re: Weird motorcycle things you remember

On my test the examiner chose a piece of road that has just been top dressed for the emergency stop. Luckily the brakes on a Bantam are rubbish so it wasn't too big a slide. The examiner was very apologetic and passed me. :)
