Re: Sym spares

I've got a SYM dealer near me in Poole, Roger Barrett. They also do Royal Enfield etc. They used to be Yamaha agents a few years ago. I've never dealt with them but not heard any bad reports either. If they have to go through Motogb though I suppose they'll be just as bad as any other. :? I do quite...

Re: Oh Dear I seem to have bought....

Lovely bike. I looked at a T100 a year or so back in 3 cross motorcycles and was suprised that the seat height/seat width on it made it usuitable for my duck-like leg dimensions (without lowering). Maybe one for the future though.

Re: Stolen TMax

Sorry to hear Stephen, glad you're going to get it back, hopefully without too much damage. As others have said it's the paranoia which has you checking and listening to every sound etc. which is the unseen price of having a bike stolen. If the courts handed down relevant sentences (like flogging) i...

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...
