Trials handlebars on ER5?

I had an ER5 for fiveish years great hoot and you can really chuck it around but the finish was dubious which completely hacked me off, OEM tyres just had to go they lacked the feel I was expecting. I am a fat git so suspension needed to be tweaked one notch up from the delivery settings but apart from that I did a track day on the bike with bike safe and then went out with a copper and a 750 rider and didn't embarrass myself. So all in all a good bike that was clearly made to a price.
Have fun

Helmet park queues ?

No one like queuing, its one of life's utterly pointless activities.
But locking my helmet to my bike simply means a good fund raising idea loses out.
Surely there is a way to organise this so as to avoid or minimise the queues ?
After all, its hardly a surprise that most people want to pick up their gear just after the last race finishes

Bennetts Insurance Renewal Rip off

I've had motorbike insurance for over 20 years, Carole Nash in the early days, more recently MCE and this year Bennetts. I had never made a claim in the 20 years (plus owned a car over same period with no claims).
However in July this year (2015) I had my bike stolen, (one of the worst experiences ever), from a fairly busy car park, on a busy road and in broad daylight with immobiliser and disc lock etc. I was insured fully comp with Bennetts. I rang them on the day it was stolen, obviously, I was passed to the Insurer (Chaucer) who in turn passed it to claims company (Brownswords). it only took 5 days from calling Bennetts to getting a call from Brownswords to say my claim would be settled in full and for a very good settlement amount. I received my cheque 12 days from my making my claim!!
All I would say is check small print on policies and avoid agreeing to automatic renewals etc. Happy biking......

Brackley Bike Fest 16th Aug

I went to the first two shows and it was absolutely brilliant.
The last time I went the Harley crowd had taken over and it was crap.
I took my son and daughter and it was bloody sad. No bands, Virtually no stuff outside in the street and
the custom show was Harleys only with one token paint job Bandit.
We stood and watched the Hawgs riding round and around outside making lots of noise flat out at 50mph until one broke down and then we went home.
Never again.
