Boring WSB

A good idea to spice up world superbore bikes is to put a sex doll on the back, or even better put the girl on the front. I followed the series from 1989 but it's a total bore now it's time may come around again but with GP racing as good as it is I doubt you will see superbore bikes as popular as it was in the 90's.

BSB Cadwell Park

@Tattoobob26
I love cadwell park been a few times first time by car it took us 2 hours to get out of the car park field, and another four to get home , so nightmare really think some diversion had been set up and a road closed forcing us to head in the wrong direction, next couple of times went by bike managed to go in by the main entrance again parked in a field take a puck for your side stand , last time we went there was a box of them to take one for free on the way through the gates bit of a hint I think and not just a freebie , but getting out and homeward bound was much easier . The hill across from the starting grid is always packed , anyway enjoy yourself, nearby Louth is nice and has a petrol station which we have had to make a desperate stop for fuel at , had to ask a cop for directions only had a few miles left reserve already broke into , nail bitting times it never had or has since been so low on fuel .

Mid Life Crisis Time

Hello my fellow mid life crisis, I am somewhat in a similar situation or was, I was 48 years old & the last time I rode a bike I was in my late teens. I spent a few weeks out in India at the start of this year & out there everyone rides a bike because its the only way to make progress on the roads.... and every day I looked out the taxi window & thought 'got to get a bike' My biking history was a 50cc twist & go, then a GS125 so nothing very big. As I sat & watched all the Indians wizzing about on all manor of bikes I started to think what I wanted & like you a cruiser came to mind because I wanted something to ride that was comfortable & not make me break too many of the laws of the land. I spent about 8 weeks looking at what to buy, visiting a lot of bike shops & reading up on tinterweb & finally settled on a Kawasaki Vulcan S 650. It is based on the ER6 which is a very good middle weight road bike so it goes very well & for a cruiser it also goes round corners very very well. some out there might laugh & say 'girls bike' as the seat height is low so I can get both feet flat on the floor when I stop but for a born again like me or someone completely new to riding a bike & dealing with the weight of a 650 it is ideal. Take a look

A1 Tour and Guide - 10-Day Northern Vietnam Motorbike Tour

Vietnam Motorbike Tours A great company to deal, I booked it very last minute and Dong was very organised and informative on any question and went to extremes to ensure everything was organised, from helping with my visa, to airport transfers and hotel accomodation prior and after the ride. Our tour guide Dong selected for my ride was Vinh, we had a pre ride briefing to discuss and cover off any unanswered questions, the bikes were all relatively brand new and very reliable, not one problem.
The actual tour was well organised, a mixture of Hotels (air con, wifi, hot water shower) and homestay (mosquito net and fan, hot water) were of a great standard for these remote areas. Vinh was a great tour guide, catering for anything I required from showing me the local Vietnamese traditional food and drink, through to some great spots for photos and local history.

Overall Indochina pulled this trip together within 3 days for me due to my late notice of booking and everything went to plan, Dong checked in regularly to ensure the tour was as what was described and expected and he helped arrange some extra tours to Ha Long Bay at the end of the trip. It was a pleasant and pain free experience, and I could not fault his service or Vinh as the guide. A great experience and could not recommend or think of anyone else that could do a better service, well done guys and I look forward to my next trip with you.
