@norris I thought that was Manchester................. is it anywhere near Leeds ?

Just far enough away. At least Pennines ensure they get slightly wetter.:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

The place to chat about your new lid, or to find out which gloves you should go for next time
Gloves that fit (if only)

Thank you to all those replying. Yesterday I found an online glove measurement size and to give an idea of how weird I must be genetically, the width guide said I was XS for width. The length however says I'm off the scale at 3XL :confused: I bet Vets have had better fitting cows on their hands than I can find gloves.

Black MotoGP riders

@ninjai74 said:

My point here is, there are alot of black riders out there that aren't given a chance to Motogp, WBSK, BSK and TT.

Just remember that most of the Moto3 and some of the Moto2 field are paying for their rides, and about half the MotoGP field does not get paid by their teams. Being a great rider is not good enough - you have to bring family/sponsorship money with you unless someone thinks that you will be a future alien.

Classic TT cheating.

So the Classic TT/Manx is over yet not a thing in MCN today about last Wednesdays and Fridays races?
Plus nothing about the cheating from certain High profile teams in MCN, over sized engine and other technical infringements. Star riders disqualified for over sized fuel tanks but then the rider is reinstated by the Clark of the course so then the chief scrutineer resigns on the spot! But other star riders are excluded due to over sized engines and NOT reinstated? Now I'm not accusing any rider of cheating its the people who supplied and prepared the machines. But the regs state that the onus is on the rider to ensure the machine is legal!!
But what kind of message does this send out when machines are checked after the race and found illegal the Star rider is reinstated ( Remember the Dunlop incident at the TT with coated valve buckets.) It makes it a joke doesn't it, but even more when MCN doesn't report is obviously not news to them. Not impressed MCN. JB

Converting a 125cc into a 50cc moped

Can't you restrict the 125cc bike to 50cc

:laughing: :joy: :grin:
That has made my day that has... thanks..

Restricting a 125cc scooter to a 50cc modern moped makes it fast enough to keep up with motorway traffic. FACT. :stuck_out_tongue:

A2 License - to go restricted or not

I'd take the 500R, no point getting a 650 that is restricted. Trade in the 500R later for a bigger bike when you can do so out of A2.

Please Join my Dad

A few weeks ago after learning the devasting news my 66 year old Dad only had a few weeks left to live, I tried to arrange one last bike ride out to Wales... The response from the biking community was overwhelming 1000s of shares & offers of help, even from doctors offering to ride along side ... Unfortunately it didn't happen I lost dad a week ago today. But he knew all about it! I'm trying my hardest to now get hi the biggest escort I can there's a link to the local paper story and a link to the details....
