Just secured next build xj600

I've purchased an 11000mile 1989 xj600. 12 months mot. New tyres the lot.

I can't wait to get cracking https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180327/fb86b174e3d09fc51fd2bcef...

New TT game.

I've been giving the playstation 4 a good battering for the last 2 days on the new TT game. I have to say that I am impressed with the realism of the sights n sounds. The bike choice is a little bit limited at the minute, however it looks like sidecars amongst others will be added FOC in May. There'...

Re: World Superbike (no spoilers)

The intended outcome is a more competitive race series ? Its effectively a handicap system then.
Load of shite. Can't see JR taking a forth title under those conditions

Re: My winter resto

The powder coating was the only job I farmed out. Total strip down. New head bearings. A carb repair. Fresh tyres. Suspension service and fresh engine gaskets. All the brakes serviced.

I've had the company IT wallers on the case for the last 4 months to no avail. Can't complain too much though as it made me sack off the digital life fo...

Re: Favourite Bike Features (Cosmetically)

USD forks on old bikes with spoked wheels. It's that old skool look with a modern twist that does it for me
