Re: The running thread.

Half forced myself out this morning. Still struggling to get back out there. However I'm glad I did. It's a cracking day out there. Highlight was coming around a corner whilst running through a wood...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

My gripe.
Having to waste my days at work when there are many, many, many other things. Some even enjoyable, that I would rather be doing.


It's a never ending re-run of Ground Hog day.

Re: SV650sy - the past eight years.

Not knowing what a 1970s, 250cc CZ stinkwheel was I had to google it.


Looks better than a curvy.

Re: SV650sy - the past eight years.

Glad you are enjoying the bike Gary, and good to hear some people on here still own and more importantly ride their SV's!


Mine makes me smile too, especially now it has new tyres, chain and...

Re: Pointy 650 - real world fuel capacity?

I'm pushing mine at 140. Anything past 135 and I'm risking it. But yes I too reset the clock every time I fill up.

Re: Pointy 650 - real world fuel capacity?

Last time was in the middle of the heat wave we had this year. I too had to push for about a mile to the station, uphill in the blazing sun. I think I sweated more than 17 litres due to all my gear....

Re: Pointy 650 - real world fuel capacity?

Having pushed to a petrol station twice. It's not much fun.
Unfortunately I didn't notice how much juice it took.

Re: Pointy 650 - real world fuel capacity?

Re: The running thread.

Re: Bung or No Bung?

I too have dropped my bike, if I'm honest 3 times now. Various reasons.
My R&G bungs have saved the lower fairings on my SK6 on all occasions. They didn't save the rear tail plastic though.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

I have no gripes today as I've had the day off. Fingers or even gingers (as my auto typing just suggested) crossed for those of you that need it. Good luck.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

I knew it was him, I just...

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Gary, more putting off until I have no choice, than busy.
