    every time we go on holiday to Greek islands the reps warn us off hiring a bike but generally the drivers over there are infinately better at looking out for bikes, guess its because they all ride them themselves from about 12 years old! Had many more near misses in the UK than over there.

    The trouble with this day and age is everyone is very good at stuff on paper and not enough practical training

    got a bandit 600 a Yamaha wr125x and Honda cbr 125 (actually my girlfriends but im allowed to ride it) ;) old picture so its aged a bit!

    also been knocked off my first bike at 19 flipped over the bonnet and landed on my back about an inch from the kerb, so i'm lucky i'm not paralyzed really!

    still love riding though and giving the Yamaha a bit of a make over, just swapped that for my old Yamaha yz 250 f which was a beast! :D

    Once upon a time, a long time ago, I used to have a Suzuki FZ50 complete with basket on the front and Snoopy Red Baron stuck on the side, then a Honda MBX80 until a van driver decided to overtake by driving into my handle bars. Bloody good bike, after swerving back and forth for a while, then sending me over the handlebars on hitting the kerb the bike bounced back on the road with my passenger still on the back whilst i slid alongside grinding my chin on the tarmac
    I regretted selling the scooter as it was only worth pocket money and the bike was 'stolen' by the receivers when the garage it was in went bankrupt and they 'couldn't trace the owners'. But I got plenty compensation

    The good old days

    I have ridden since the crash but only owned cars since then, which I still steer like bikes and always lean round corners

    Swapped the NC30 for a GSXR750 K4. Not done many sessions on track this year - couple at Brands Hatch and two days at Snetterton

    Hoping to fit a few more in next season

    Just bought this

    $_86 (1).JPG $_86.JPG

    2004 model SV1000s, 12400 miles.

    Full fairings
    Piper cross air filter
    Micron exhaust
    Power commander
    GSXR 1000 rear shock
    Gel seat
    LED side lights
    Gilles rear sets
    Pyramid tinted screen
    Tail tidy
    Crash bungs
    Tank pad

    The only thing I intend to change is the link pipes to a high level set if I can get them somewhere. There's a fabrication company locally who may be able to help.
