Re: Track Days

Personally I think they're meant to be ridden. Although I could sit and look at that one for a long time.... :) Where I live all my favourite roads have recently been ruined by some b-----d with a paint can painting out the old national limits and reducing them to 40 or 50mph, there aren't many now ...

Re: Two smokers

I've looked but can't find any reference to the YB125, only the YB100. I know a four stroke would make more sense, better economy etc. It's probably just nostalgia but I just like the look of this little bike.

Two smokers

I've been looking on the Dorset "Bughad" classic bike site and there's a nice little YB125 there for £1350 which is tempting me. Nice and light, autolube etc. Needing a little fettling but basically sound. Has anyone had one of these? I had a little 50 many years ago with the same sort of motor - ho...

Re: Yamaha planning scooter airbags

Funnily enough I was just thinking the other day about the Quaser/Quasar? with the Reliant motor. Never rode one but always thought it was a good idea just needing some developement. The Reliant motor was nothing to write home about but something along those lines with a decent four cylinder bike mo...

Re: New Harleys

Sorry for the late reply Scootypuff Snr. No, as far as I know he's not. I quite like the friends Harley and we often ride together. I go on my 1100 Shadow and I can't honestly say that the Harley performs any better or worse than the Shadow but after all the Shadow's a 1987 Harley clone so the word ...

Re: New Harleys

"No but with the noise from the engine you don't hear the bits drop off. 8-) " Quote Scootypuff snr. :lol: Like it! I rather like the look of the new Harleys and hope they're successful despite the new tariffs etc. I must admit my only experience of them is my friends which he's been commuting on fo...

Re: Growl..

Yes it did look good, unfortunately MOT history is not service history, and it had a knock/vibration which absolutely spoiled any riding pleasure when it was hot. It's no longer with me and has been replaced with a much nicer VFR750F which looks great, goes like stink and sounds amazing. We live and...

Well weather stopped play. I didn't fancy dodging snowflakes and freezing my but off on a test ride but hopefully I can go tomorrow and take it for a spin.
As pics show it's pretty immaculate. :)
