So anyway, one thing at the show that I liked, apart from some fantastic bikes was the Sharps stand.The bloke (Government Scientist) that runs the program was on the stand very knowledgeable about materials, type testing and how the programme has enabled riders to influence the market. Running for 10 years, they are entirely government funded therefore independent of industry and did you know we are the only country that monitors helmets in the market place.Seriously no other Government in Europe specifically monitors whats on sale. Bonkers isn't it. The most essential bit of kit a motorcyclist uses and no fooker bothers to check if it's at the right quality on sale after type testing is complete.
Technical and tyres
@HOSBUSA I hate those roundabouts, they must have picked a quiet time for the aerial shot, no backed up traffic coming off the M40 or both ways on the A46. Nothing worse than turning down the slip road at Warwick and seeing 2 stationary lanes, gets exciting filtering through pissed off drivers.
Do you remember before they built the motorway you could take that island without slowing down ?
@oscarthegrouch Neither is mine......... but I have built up a huge collection of NOS parts for the X1...... including Exhaust, Seat, All Panels, Tank, Mudguards, Clocks, Lights and pretty much every other Important bit........just got to get the new Shed......... and stop going on this bloody site...!
Buying and selling
Hi there, I'm new to the forums but looking for some advice on what to get next. Currently have a 1990 ZZR600D but looking for something a little more modern come January.
I have narrowed this down to a early-mid 2000's Yammy R6 or a early-mid 2000's Kwaka zx-6. Mainly looking to find out from people who have owned either of these things like riding position, comfort ect...
It will be used near enough everyday for commuting and distance journeys (400 miles) on rare occasion.
Any insight given will be much appreciated and thank-you in advance.
