@ninjachica I saw the Invisible bit and the other bits but never really thought about it until Ian mentioned it last night. It looks like you can access the forum and see who's online ect whilst being Invisible to everyone else............ It's a bit odd that the site has this feature built-in...... why would you want to do that ?

Sadly i bought a lifan

The Lifan V-twin are based off, of the Yamaha V250, the parts are also identical externally, Internally it is a different story. The CG and CB engines that Honda brought out were for the vertical engines only (as far as I am aware of). This included the single cylinder and the parallel twins. The CG engines are a pushrod engine overhead valves, as for the CB engines were overhead cam. I believe since those V-twins usually had one cam shaft on each one of the cylinders at the top. So, these won't be a CG engine.
I had some issues in the beginning with it shifting from one gear to another and found out that if I ran synthetic oil, it worked much better than regular oil, even shifted better.

Besides I have a 2007 Lifan Cruiser, which I bought 8 years ago, I still have it today, I still ride it, recently redid the entire motorcycle. And am prefectly happy with it. Yes, Lifan could have put better parts on it. But than the older style motorcycles were classified as toss away bikes as for the new Lifans are not. I have one of the "toss away" bikes, I will toss it away after I get 250, 000 miles on the engine, only have 240, 000 more to go.

Ducati bit like the nineties/noughties all over again?

@alol I tend to agree. Nothing against Shakey but I was routing for any of the other riders to win the series. Saw the Donington Park round and enjoyed it but the main events were a bit of a let down because of over dominance by the Ducati team.

Hooray! I just "won" BSB title on full factory bike

I take your point about Shakey, It's just that sometimes he runs his mouth off. In the past he scathed about the showdown format, Well after his Oulton Park "Performance" last month it sure worked out for him this year. Don't like Ducati in Production racing (and never have tbh) as they have always bent/manipulated the rules to suit themselves.
