PB Defector

Post by Big Nick »

Blame Couchy for me arriving here, he says sorry in advance. This forum comes highly recommended as a place where people actually ride bikes and enjoy all things rebellious about our hobby. I feel like someone who has walked out of a long term relationship as I am a one forum man! PB Mag forum since 2006 I think, but times change and I just want to spend time enjoying my passion; Fast bikes.

I am a 34 year old married man who has clung onto bikes even after three children, just worked harder to afford it all!! Bike mad since 13 and following the shitfest that COVID has been looking to get back in track (next week Donnington) and do many more road miles on my bike.

Talking of which I have a 2020 ZX6R which I am determined to hold onto for at least 18 months, my previous ownership record. To be honest it’s a cracking bike and plenty enough performance for me.

Hopefully as things ease off we could have forum link-ups and create a sense of community that has lacked in the old forum.

Anyway my 16 stone arse on a mini bike yesterday:

Your passion is fast bikes, but you ride a ZX6?

You know faster bikes are available, right?

Have you considered a Panigale?

I prefer the little ninja to the 2018 blade I had, you can ride it fairly hard on the road without going from 0-prison in no time.

Anyway 600s are still quick we both know that.

Nice to meet you by the way.

Good evening! (From one of the boring old gits who are allowed in on a sort of care in the community programme).

First 2 posts from any newbie require Mod Approval to keep spammers at bay.

We like the odd ZX6R pic over here... well, i think they may all be sick of the 20,000 pics of the wifes one by now, but there's plenty here :)

Anyway, welcome in and enjoy the forum fella.

Welcome, Nick, or " yoof" as I think you should be known here ( it's all relative and I reckon you're 20 years or so further away from pensionable age than most on here :D ) we need more young-uns!

Maybe see you at a track day sometime this year :thumbup:

Welcome in man,from another Kawasaki fan. 8-)

Don't tell me the PB forum has gone all PC or something. I remember the mag from back in the day,with headers like Mark Forsythe,Trevor Franklin and the late great John Robinson.
