Re: First world problems and bike dilemas

... test rode a BMW F800GT today. It was a very nice bike. Felt a lot smaller when you're on it than they look. Felt heavier than the Tracer and less inclined to steer, but it surprised me when it...

Re: First world problems and bike dilemas

That's what I thought I was going to get before I got the Tracer.. mainly because of budget. But then I wanted ABS and all the ABS models were up around the price of the cheapest Tracers. Looks wise,...

Re: First world problems and bike dilemas

I was looking at z1000 and z750 s a while ago. They've got a lovely rumble. Not really wanting an IL4 though and they drink more petrol than our car!

Re: First world problems and bike dilemas

Cheers, but if I had another SV I'd probably go for something older that needed fixing up as a project.


The bhp of the Tracer is one thing I do like, so looking for something nearer that sort of...

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Even more true with cycling. I cycle to work sometimes and had a journey home the other evening where I was flying along at 20mph the whole way without pedalling! Lucky, as I was totally exhausted...

Re: First world problems and bike dilemas

Still undecided and a bit hesitant to choose something, knowing how I feel about what I thought was going to be an ideal bike in the Tracer.


I keep coming back to it needing to be fun at the top...

Re: Photo Comp - Chat Thread

I started doing it out of not having time to take photos in a considered way as I would normally, as my hands were full with the kids needing attention every few seconds.


I wouldn't recommend it...

Re: Photo Comp - Chat Thread

We're half way through August and there doesn't seem to be any uptake on this months theme. Would people prefer I change it to something less obscure? Be a shame if there's no entries as people...

Re: First world problems and bike dilemas

Half way through August, I can't see myself deciding to get another years insurance on the Tracer at the beginning of September.

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Fixed my Macbook myself! Total cost of a set of laptop tools for 5 and the airport wifi card for 9.80. Much better than approx 80+ for Apple to look at it.


I can now type on a proper keyboard...

Re: Good quality screwdrivers.

If you want expensive ones then Vessel are very good and do JIS ones. I use Draper and they're decent. They do some that don't claim to be JIS but the profile on a few of them definitely is,...

Re: First world problems and bike dilemas

Not sure I can handle the extra weight on the VFR. It's the same weight as the Tracer and BMW dry as they are wet.
On paper I thought I wouldn't like the 214kg of the Tracer, but it actually feels...
