Ask expert fellow riders about anything to do with setting up, fixing or improving your bike
Triumph Daytona 675 problems

Would you say that it takes three to four minutes before the engine reaches normal running temperature?

It is probably worth draining the fuel system and refilling with fresh, and include an injector cleaner in the mix as it is possible that the injectors are suffering with 'lacquering' and are therefore not able to deliver fuel in the way they should.
Whilst you are at it a new filter would not go amiss as there is a very real possibility that condensation from the stop start running has accumulated in the old fuel.

I would also suggest a full service would not go amiss so that all cycle parts are checked and the engine is checked and reset to optimum settings. I would always do the optimum resets before looking for other problems. As doing this you will more than likely fix the fault/s as you go as engines only needa few small errors in their setting for what may seem to be a major problem.

Shop with big range of clothing in Sussex area

I live in Brighton, am very tall and need a shop with a large clothing selection to ensure they've got a good size range. Other than P&H motorcycles in Crawley, does anyone know of any shops in the Sussex Area that might do the trick? Thanks.

50cc moped doing 40mph

Most of the 4-stroke 50cc scooters sold in The Colonies have a top speed in the 35-38 mph range, so 40 mph indicated is certainly possible on the flats, as long as there is not a governor holding top speed down.

Straightliners round 1 and RWYB 29th March Santa Pod.

I grew up when the likes of Jonn Hobbs was drag racing.
The years when MCN printed the most fantastic part exploded artwork of popular motorcycles across both sides of the centre pages. It was dead cool and I had them on my bedroom wall dreaming of when I would have my own bike.

I love the drag racing and been going to Santa Pod for over 30 years.
The main events early on, but nowadays we go to the smaller bikes only race meetings too.

Attending a main drag racing event should be on everyone's bucket list.
We took my two kids 3 years ago and they were blown away totally by the whole thing!

Top fuellers that explode off the start line to 300 mph in about 3 seconds is barbaric to say the least !
Watching the 50s American muscle cars running 6 and 7 second quarter
miles with only 1 wheel on the deck when they take off.
Seeing the jet cars and jet bike and jet quads.
The jet car is proper crazy mad.
We were stood half way down the track talking to some mates when both Fireforce 1 and 2 came past and almost blew us off our feet, they generate so much thrust.

There are kiddie dragsters if you want to buy your child a go down the strip driving themselves. You have to see it and it's beautiful.

Or you can have a passenger ride in a top fueller if your brave enough and your bowls are emptied before you try ! Lol

The bikes are my favourite though and the super street class is where I am most fixated. These are in theory race bikes that would pass an MOT.
So they are street legal super bikes / superstreet.
Seeing the Busa's slamming through the trap at over 200mph in the 7 second quarter mile area is truly shattering. Those bikes are devastatingly fast. Fast as fuck!

But there always shit loads of different things going on, stunt bike arena, monster trucks, trade stands, walk around the pits, have a beer, have helicopter rides, live bands in the evening. It's not just drag racing., it's a community. Families and kids are an integral part.
