Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Thy SV-650 in our garage
Hallowed be your name
Your ninety degree v-twin will come
Your frame will be done
On the highway as on the twisties
Give us our daily torque
Forgive us our chicken...

Re: MCE Insurance

Bikesure were best of the bunch for me. Loads of non performance mods declared + riding other bikes cover etc

Happened upon an RTC today just as the paramedic was getting to the casualty. Fella didn't make it home. :(

Re: Insurance Q: awareness course or points & fine?

Rule of thumb is take care around places I can't pronounce :p

Many years ago my points had no effect on insurance

Re: Battery Size for a Pointy

Both the batteries you listed will be fine. I'm almost positive (bad pun) the dead battery is the wrong size

Re: Oh no, not again (speeding)

Not just yourself, the colours don't contrast with leafy green things well so a clever hidey spot for the van

Re: Oh no, not again (speeding)

Licence clean currently? I hate the sweating it out but 3 points (possibly awareness course) isn't the end of the world...

It's weird though, how invisible a vehicle covered in HI-VIZ decals...

Our Sam was an important part of my childhood, and apparently my early 30's

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

^It's hateful as much as I love seeing bikes out again - having never stopped riding myself I'd say I'm fairly "sharp" and up to speed. 3 weeks or so until the NW200, so everyones a Michael Dunlop
